Blackhurst receives donation from First Assembly Church

Blackhurst Elementary received an amazing gift today! First Assembly Church in St. Peters donated 1,400 books for classroom teachers (100 per teacher) and around 80 shirts and ties for the "Guys in Ties" program, a school initiative that teaches leadership, respect and decorum to young boys. Thank you so much to First Assembly for this wonderful donation. We appreciate it!
