Superior mascots head to Newtown

Bear Hugs and Moose Kisses, two large resident stuffed animals of the Superior Middle School library, are being sent to the children of Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn.

According to the Superior Telegram, the school decided to send the stuffed animals and a card to welcome the Sandy Hook students to their new school. The stuffed animals have provided comfort to students in Superior, staff said, and it’s time to share them with people who have greater needs.

The school received help from Lake Superior Cleaners, Engwall Florist, Going Postal and the Safari in Ashland.
