Devastating effects of recent hurricanes led students and staff in many PWCS schools to reach out to their communities to join their efforts to help those affected by the storms.

Marumsco Hills Elementary School held a school supplies drive to help students in Clear Creek School District in Houston. In just four days, students filled 15 large packing boxes with donations that included 12 backpacks. Donations included hundreds of pencils and markers, at least 75 pairs of scissors, over 80 packages of paper, almost 100 notebooks, 25 binders, 75 folders, countless glue sticks, and an abundance of other items. Teachers helped with the packing, loading, and driving the supplies to UPS to ship donations to Houston.

Henderson Elementary School’s Wacky Hat Wednesday raised more than $800 that the school donated to the American Red Cross.  Students who wanted to wear a wacky hat donated a dollar in support of hurricane victims. The fundraiser was the brainchild of a former student, Amaya McBride, who now attends Saunders Middle School.
