Staff at Garcia Elementary react to the death of young girl

Remembering Mykayla

CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII NEWS) - Friends gathered Monday afternoon at Garcia Elementary to remember young MyKayla. MyKayla went to school at Garcia last year, but recently transferred to another school for her 5th grade year.

Garcia's principal, Norma De Leon, says that the students were able to express their feelings and get some closure by writing MyKayla messages.

"Write a little positive note about her on a pebble. Get a card and just send a message to MyKayla on how they felt how they miss her. All of this is going to be put together to hand deliver to the family," says De Leon.

Counselors and officials with Corpus Christi Independent School District's crisis team were on hand Monday to meet with students and faculty on the loss of their friend.
