Help HIS Help Students in Need
6th grade students in Mrs. Yates reading class decided they wanted to become email pen pals with students at Jinx Middle School after hearing about the hurricane. Once everyone at HIS heard about this, they decided to find out how we could all help this school. We decided to collect needed school supplies and take them down there during out holiday break. We are collecting:
* Bottles of Expo cleaner
* Packs of Expo markers
* 150 3-prong, 2 pocket folders
* 100 boxes of Kleenex
* 50 pairs of ear buds
We are excited about giving back to students in need.
