For Schools Affected by Hurricane Harvey
9/6/17 - I may have limited access to the internet for the next several days. I will be preparing for Hurricane Irma. Please keep the state of Florida in your thoughts & prayers. ~ Kristen
I have helped to organize an "Adopt a School" program through a group of principals that collaborate together online through Facebook. The online Facebook group is called Principal Principles. I wanted to provide as many campuses as possible the opportunity to reach out for help or an opportunity to adopt a school/community in need. This Facebook group is made up of administrators from all over the U.S. including many schools in the Houston & surrounding areas most affected.
Right now we have about 260 schools that have been adopted.
What an amazing response to a much needed cause. I am so proud to be an educator!! Interested in adopting a school? Click on the link below.
Having Trouble with the Sign-Up Sheet?
Helping Schools Who Have Already Been Adopted
Most campuses who have signed up have been adopted however many may also benefit from having a second school adopt them. Please use the Principals Helping Principals spreadsheet to see if there is a campus that you could partner up with. Be sure and check out all the tabs too. There are two tabs for elementary, and one for intermediate, middle, and high school.
There is lots of activity on the list and sometimes it is hard to get connected. Google settings limit the number of user on there at any one time. Once you are able to make contact with the person listed, he/she would be able to give you a better idea of what they need the most. You would then coordinate how you would like any donations sent to that school/group.
