PIKE ROAD, AL (WSFA) -

A Pike Road second-grader is recovering in a Birmingham hospital after her family says she sustained serious injuries that will require continued treatment.

Now, she has some uplifting reading material, courtesy of her classmates. There's no lesson plan for how to tell a room full of children their friend is in the hospital.

“They were all really sad, some wanted to know more, some didn't," explained Pike Road School teacher Hannah Moore. "I think it was a very natural conversation. "We tried to make it as lighthearted as possible.”

The kids didn't discuss details but according to the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, 8-year-old Honour Nichols was riding a children's motorized scooter when she was struck by a vehicle Monday.

Kayla Franklin and Hannah Moore talked to students about the importance of wearing a helmet.

“We did say that Honour had a helmet on and we're so thankful, and the doctors actually reported to Hollie and Ted, her parents, that it was a blessing and possibly what saved her was that she had a helmet on,” Moore explained. At last check, authorities said Honour was in stable condition.

“We really stress, we have norms in our classroom, and one is 'be positive', and I think that was one, I'm going to start crying, that hit home today, is that we wanted to be positive for Honour," Moore said. "We wanted to be hopeful that she's going to push through, that she's going to be ok and that she's going to be back with us really soon.” 

Honoring Honour with words of encouragement pugs (Honour’s favorite!) and portraits, students got creative and made cards for their fellow classmate.

“What was powerful, it wasn't a teacher saying 'What do you think we should do?', we should make a card bit it was just kind of their own and they all put their own little flair on it,” Moore added.

The well-wishes were driven up to Children's Hospital as soon as the final bell rang Tuesday, and her friends say they miss her and want her to feel better soon.

Pike Road School parents have organized a bake sale to benefit Honour and help her family with travel and medical expenses. The fundraiser will be held Friday morning from 7:30-9:30 AM at the school.

If you are interested in contributing, but cannot make it to the bake sale friends of the family have set up an account at ServisFirst Bank in honor of The Nichols Family. Donations can be made in person at the Peppertree Branch. Checks can be made payable to the Honour Nichols Fund.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office is investigating and talking to the driver involved. According to Captain Trent Beasley everything appears to be accidental so far but they still need to accident reconstruction.  

The Nichols family said they are very grateful for everyone's help and support with this situation.
