School Supply/Book Drive for Beaumont ISD

Next week, we will be hosting a school supply and book drive to assist Beaumont I.S.D.  The needs in Beaumont are vast and almost incomprehensible.  We have several connections, in the Beaumont area, and would like to do something to assist the many staff members and students affected by Hurricane Harvey.

There will be grade level labeled bins in the hallway, all next week, for students and parents to place donated items.  Please consider helping by sending school supplies and/or books to school next week if you are able.  I described our school and community to the BISD Asst. Supt. Dr. Shannon Allen as a small school and community with a huge heart.  

We will also collect items on Friday, September 15th, at the White Oak vs. Spring Hill football game.  Our hope is to “fill up a pickup” with supplies to support our friends in Beaumont.  Thank you in advance for your kindness and support.  We expect this to be a tremendous service learning opportunity for our students.
