“I have 2 friends that teach in the Houston area at KIPP SHINE Prep. I immediately thought of them when I heard what was happening in Houston. One of the teachers had posted about school being cancelled and that got me thinking about when they would go back, what would they have left. I reached out and, of course, they said they would be grateful for any help with supplies that we could provide. “ states Desiree Piche, a fifth grade teacher at Jefferson.
Jefferson will be collecting school supplies to help the schools get back up and running for when they return to school. Staff, students, and community members can drop off donations at Jefferson Elementary School now through Friday, September 8th.
Jefferson Elementary school is located at 315 Jackson Street in Henderson.
