A Team Effort
| "Miss Anela, how is Sierra?"
Anela looked up from her desk as the students began filing into school the next day. It was Shane who stood before her, his walker propped before him.
"She'll be fine, Shane," Anela said, rising and giving him a small hug. "She just had a seizure, and she is now recovering. She's very weak."
"You know," Jenna commented, "I've always liked Sierra. Even if she does sleep all the time. She doesn't say much, but when she does, it's always nice. I've never heard her fight with anyone ever."
"You're very much correct, Jenna," said Anela, smiling.
"I think," said Isaac boldly, "we should go to the hospital and see Sierra."
"We should bring her presents," Shane chirped.
"That would be fun, we could cheer her up," Scott chimed in.
"It would be a team effort, and I think it's a great idea," Anela said.
As the class began their first activty for the day, Anela telephoned the principal, who seemed to think it was a genuinely ingenius idea. So Anela had the students make cards for Sierra, and told them to each either make or purchase a small present for Sierra. The next day, they would all go to the hospital, to see their friend.
