Gardening Club Needs Your Support

Dear Parents of Harmony School of Endeavor.

Recently, we have started a club known as the Gardening Club, and our goal is to cultivate a garden behind the school. Many benefits come with this, including a better school environment.

However, we don’t have all of the necessary supplies to bring our goal to fruition. That is where you come in! If you’re willing to donate to our club’s cause, then you can help us start our community garden. Through your donations and our garden work, we can make the community garden a reality.

Those necessary supplies include:

  • Cardboard egg cartons
  • Herb seeds
  • Old newspapers
  • Small planter pots

As you can see, we aren’t asking for too much. That means you don’t have to give up much at all while benefiting the school and its student body. Every donation is valuable, and we can get just a bit closer to our goal through all of them.

So, we’re asking for your help to make the school just a little bit better for the students attending it. Please communicate gardening club adviser, Ms. Ford, at joanna.garza@harmonytx.org for further details.

Thank you in advance,

A can can save a man in need!

Dear Endeavor Parents,

We are the 10th-grade CRLP boys, and we have decided to start a can drive for the homeless dubbed "A can can save a man in need." We are excited to help out the people in need, and that is why we decided to start this organization. Students can bring cans to school from October 18th until November 19th to contribute to our charity campaign and receive PBA (positive behavior points). We hope you support us in this virtuous cause and donate cans to help the people in need."

Contact Mr. Akkilic at rakkilic@harmonytx.org if you need any further information.
