Many schools in Texas have been severely impacted by Hurricane Harvey. This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to take action and show care and concern for others. Through an organization called Principals Helping Principals, we have been paired with KIPP Climb Academy—located 1 mile from the Sims Bayou in South Houston. We are asking Jackson students to help other students by donating school supplies. Each house is designated specific school supplies to donate (see below). To encourage participation in this humanitarian project, houses will be awarded 1 point for every 5 items donated. Here is the list of school supplies that each house will be collecting:
In addition to school supplies, many teachers at the school have been impacted personally. The school has set up an electronic donation page for for those who wish to make a monetary donation that will go to the affected teachers. The webpage is located at www.kipphouston.org/donate. Once the school staff is able to return to their school building, there may be more specific needs. We have asked the KIPP principal to keep in touch and let us know what we can do to help.
