  • CCE 4th graders throw surprise birthday party for critically ill UWE student at Children’s Mercy

    CCE 4th graders throw surprise birthday party for critically ill UWE student at Children’s Mercy

    Mira, a homebound Underwood Elementary student, has only been able to attend school for a few hours each morning due to a lifelong battle with a critical illness. This hasn’t kept Linda Driskill’s 4th graders at Cedar Creek Elementary from making Mira know she is a beloved, important part of our school district community. 

    “Since the moment they found out about Mira, they have made cards, Face-timed her in the hospital and have gone above and beyond in showing kindness,” said Michelle Uptegrove, Mira’s homebound teacher, about Ms. Driskill’s 4th graders partnering with Mira to help her feel supported in the LSR7 journey together. They even organized a birthday party for Mira to show solidarity.

This hasn’t kept Linda Driskill’s 4th graders at Cedar Creek Elementary from making Mira know she is a beloved, important part of our school district community. “Since the moment they found out about Mira, they have made cards, Face-timed her in the hospital and have gone above and beyond in showing kindness,” said Michelle Uptegrove, Mira’s homebound teacher, about Ms. Driskill’s 4th graders partnering with Mira to help her feel supported in the LSR7 journey together. They even organized a birthday party for Mira to show solidarity. During this planning, Ms. Driskill’s class found out that Mira was being transported to a children’s hospital in another state, so they jumped into action to host the party earlier. Mira’s 4th grade friends moved the surprise birthday party they’d planned for the following week and started wrapping gifts they’d purchased themselves. They then traveled to Children’s Mercy Hospital to surprise Mira with an early birthday celebration. “These life events and situations don't happen everyday,” Ms. Uptegrove said. She added that Mira’s friends don’t let Mira’s medical equipment keep them from showing her love and compassion. “This class has been nothing short of heartwarming.” Thank you to our elementary schools and their partnership to show that together we can do so much in supporting the needs and wellbeing of our students.
