Thank you for supporting Tex Hill and our awesome Johnson Cluster schools.

We need help!!

We are looking for some help from any dads (and anyone else who wants to help) this Saturday, April 9, at Hill from 9:00am-12:00pm. If you are not aware, the Tex Hill PTSA along with help from an Eagle Scout, put in 2 garden beds over the summer at Hill. However, we have discovered that the beds need to be deeper and more soil added. We need your help with adding the dirt and more cinder blocks to the beds.

We would greatly appreciate your help - we're thinking it would probably go a lot faster with some dads there. We do have some shovels and gloves, but if you are willing to bring yours from home, that would be great. Wheelbarrows are also needed.

Our 1st VP, Melinda Cox, will be there on Saturday morning and can give you more specific direction on exactly what needs to be done. You can park in the front of the school - the beds are located in the front of the school - just down on the left as you are looking at the main building.

I have included the link below to sign up.
