LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

The following in a news release form the Calcasieu Parish School Board:

Students from Barbe High's fine arts survey class donated self-published book to J.D. Clifton Elementary on Monday.

"Using funds and resources from the Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy grant, the students worked in groups to develop the story lines and illustrations that focus around important lessons for children such as bullying and the importance of doing well in school," said Kirby Smith, Calcasieu Parish School Board Public Information Officer.

The high school students also read excerpts from the books to the children.

Some of the books will also be donated to a local women's shelter.
