Weather and fires have wreaked havoc on our country in recent weeks but people in our area continue to find creative ways to help. Atholton High School’s Leadership Cadre (SLC) has spearheaded a school-wide effort that will help the students, staff and families at Oleson Elementary School in Houston, TX. The community was devastated by Hurricane Harvey and now the families are unable to have their annual fundraiser which typically has raised about $10,000 for the school. That amount, equivalent to less than $10 per student at Atholton, is the goal of the SLC’s fundraiser. T-shirts with the slogan “AHS Supports Houston” were sold for $17 each and profits from the sale will go directly to Oleson Elementary. The SLC at Atholton has also set up a gift registry through Amazon where requested necessities will be sent directly to Oleson Elementary for the purposes of replenishing necessary supplies at the school. To access the online registry go to http://a.co/4fYkklb if you would like to make a generous contribution. We should remember that the families in the Houston area have experienced life changing devastation and will need relief for several years. You will be able to see the power of the generosity of Atholton students at the varsity football game on Friday, Nov. 3, which will also be Senior Night.
