We love the Houston Rockets players, coaches and personnel...but now we need to add their wives to the list! Several wives, mothers and friends of the Houston Rockets basketball organization paid a special visit to Royalwood Elementary on Tuesday providing backpacks and other supplies for the students.
The East Harris County Empowerment Council has continued to assist Sheldon ISD individuals and families facing the social, financial and mental impact of Hurricane Harvey. Following Harvey, the EHCEC donated thousands of dollars of supplies toward our district-level donation drive as well as helped our district receive more than (40) $50 gift cards. This worthwhile organization is also planning on hosting a resource drive that will assist individuals in crisis due to the storm.
Thank you so much to Connally ISD Superintendent Wesley Holt and his staff for donating hundreds of much-needed textbooks to Sheldon ISD.
Members of the True Vine Missionary Baptist Church in Crosby live by the following statement: “Growing to Serve…and Serving to Grow.” Rev. Chris Carter, pastor at True Vine Missionary Church, was an initial contact of a large congregation in Dallas that was willing to help the Crosby area. Rev. Carter also understood that the Sheldon community was deeply impacted by Harvey – and he requested that volunteers and much-needed supplies were needed in our area.
Sheldon ISD and San Jacinto College have had a long-standing partnership in the area of dual credit opportunities for our high school students, but Provost Dr. William Rafetto and his team has taken this partnership to another level following Hurricane Harvey.
Did you know that October is National Principals Month? Gulf Coast Educators Federal Credit Union provided all Sheldon ISD principals will a delicious lunch from Manuel's Mexican Restaurant. Make sure to thank your school principal for all the hard work they do!
A C.E. King High School alumni thought his class ring was lost for good...and for good reason, the ring went missing almost 30 years ago!
James Owens gave his class ring to his high school girlfriend back in the 80s. She moved to Rosenberg and took the ring with her. James was convinced he wouldn't wear his ring again and just about lost hope for it ever being recovered.
You know what they say though, "Don't lose hope."
