National Volunteer Week
On Tuesday, April 14, REACH High School staff and students celebrated National Volunteer Week by honoring Ms. Becky Neely, a longtime helper on the campus. Ms. Neely works every week with REACH students, trying to assist them with their studies, sharing her love of learning with them and assisting teachers with countless tasks. Students made posters and cards and also spoke about how Ms. Neely's generous spirit has impacted their lives.
Ms. Neely challenges students to donate their time to help others saying that doing so will give the students a chance "to make a difference in somebody's life just as REACH students have made a difference in mine." We are unspeakably grateful for the service of Ms. Neely; she is a trusted colleague, advisor and friend to all at REACH High School. Thank you!! Please see pictures of our students and staff with Ms. Neely under students- REACH Photo Gallery.
REACH EASTER EGG HUNT WITH JJE STUDENTS
On Thursday, April 2nd, REACH High School held the annual Easter egg hunt for kindergarten students from Joy James Elementary. There were 80 students from Joy James joining in the fun to "hunt" 1,500 plastic candy filled eggs.
When the students arrived, pairs were matched up with a REACH "buddy" to spend time with during their visit to our campus. The fun started with the coloring of Easter pictures and bags to hold all of the eggs that would soon be gathered. The guests also enjoyed juice and a cookie as they colored. The Easter egg hunt was a huge success and ended within a couple of minutes. The guests spent a short while discovering the treasures in the plastic eggs. Then, it was picture time and time to load back on the bus to make it back to Joy James in time for lunch.
It was a great day and everyone's already looking forward to next year!!
REACH to Host 2nd Annual Blood Drive
REACH will host their second annual blood drive through Carter BloodCare on Tuesday, March 24th from 9:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. in the Commons Area. The blood drive is open to students, staff, CISD personnel, parents, community members, and anyone else who would like to help save lives. Students who choose to donate will receive one hour community service credit.
Last year, the blood drive was a tremendous success. Carter BloodCare saw a total of 32 donors and collected 32 units total of whole blood and double red cells. As each donation saves 3 lives over 96 lives were touched by the drive. The generous donors consisted of student, staff, parents, and community members.
The units we collected were transfused to patients in need though out the service area. "Giving blood is a meaningful way to show your support and also touch the lives of others in need," said Sandra Lundgren, Consultant at Carter BloodCare.
She continued, "Our whole purpose for being is to replace the blood we use today so it will be available for those of us who need it tomorrow. We truly appreciate your continued support. Please pass this along to your students and volunteers."
After donating, you may go to www.caterbloodcare.org and check on your cholesterol and blood type.
