For the last three years the Cordell First Grade classes have participated in the Great Bedtime Pajama Drive. The program is a nonprofit organization designed to provide new books and new pajamas to children in need, many of whom are waiting, and hoping, to be adopted. The Cordell First Grade classes collected 175 pairs of pajamas that were delivered, by Travis and Chanda Powers, just before Christmas, to the City Rescue Mission in Oklahoma City. A spokesperson at the mission said they were very grateful for the donation since they did not have any children’s pajamas. Cordell First Grade teachers are Mrs. Powers, Mrs. Hougland, and Mrs. Holland.
