Lewis Elementary

April 2023

Hello Lewis families,

It’s hard to believe that March is here and spring is just around the corner. Hopefully March will provide so beautiful spring/cool weather for us. I think we deserve it after the crazy February we just had. March will be another busy month, so please find some time to do some self care this month!

Founded in 1980, the San Antonio Food Bank serves one of the largest service areas in Southwest Texas. Our focus is for clients to have food for today but to also have the resources to be self-sufficient in the future.


Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas is so much more than a place where grieving children come to heal. We change lives.
Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas was founded on May 20, 1997, as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. Recognizing the permanent impact loss can have on young people, the Center was established to help children and families grieving the death of a loved one. In a culture that does not talk about grief and bereavement, and in a world that doesn’t “get it,” we do.
