District 39 Helps Texas School District

District 39 Helps Texas School District
Posted on 09/18/2017

Dear District 39 Community,

The news of the past couple of weeks has unfortunately been filled with tragic natural disasters impacting several parts of our country. Many of us want to help, but with so much happening, it can be difficult to know where to start. There are many, many people that have been impacted by the hurricanes and need assistance.

District 39 is focusing on one Texas school district that was very hard hit - Pasadena Independent School District in Pasadena, TX. It is just southeast of Houston and suffered significant damage. If the D39 community comes together, we can have a positive impact on this district and its many students and families.

We are beginning a District-wide fundraising campaign on Monday, September 18 involving parents, students, staff and any community members that wish to help. We will have a jar to collect money in each District building. In addition, you can drop off a check made out to Pasadena ISD Education Foundation, or donate online; it’s a 501(c)3. If you donate online, put “District 39” in the “special instructions” field so we can track how much we collectively raise. We will continue collecting through September 29.

As you learn a bit about Pasadena ISD, you’ll see that it is a large district serving 56,000 students in 67 buildings (before the hurricane). Nearly 77% of their students are economically disadvantaged. They employ 7,650 staff. The hurricane impacted their schools and the homes of many students and staff members. They really need our help.

You can learn more about Pasadena ISD at www.pasadenaisd.org or https://www.facebook.com/pasadenaisd. In addition, they shared this video that gives you an up-close look at what they are dealing with - https://youtu.be/RZl9DGilsuU

I hope you’ll join us and give what you can. Every donation helps. Together, we can make a real difference. 

Your partner in education,

Ray
