A class of students at Our Lady of Victory School brightened the newsroom Monday.

The students sent over yummy cookies and nine hand-written letters thanking the Victoria Advocate. I'm not sure why the school chose us, but we appreciate the gesture.

Here's part of the letter from student Madison Hoang:

"Thank you so much for the information you provide us every day. Information is truly essential in keeping up with the times and staying connected to our world today. Thank you for all your hard work. I realize that journalism requires much skill and perseverance ..."

And student Alex Vasquez wrote in part, "Without you, we would be in a lot of trouble. You help us out a lot with the generous things you do. Thank you again."

Thank you, Madison, Alex and all of OLV. You humble us with your generous words. Happy Catholic Schools Week.
