Sept. 30 Wichita Wagonmaster Chili Cookoff
#WPSProud 'PEP' Rally to support students in Houston impacted by Hurricane Harvey
Don't miss the opportunity on Saturday, Sept. 30, to join the Wichita Public Schools community in supporting students impacted by the recent hurricane in Houston. Many Wichita schools have gotten involved, and we invite YOU to be part of the movement to pay it forward! Many Houston ISD students have been directly impacted by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. Nine schools in Houston will have to relocate or co-locate elsewhere in the Houston district for some or all of the school year due to the damage in their school. We want to help!
During our #WPSProud 'PEP' Rally on Sept. 30 as part of the Wichita Wagonmaster Chili Cookoff, we will collect the following items to send to Houston. Thanks to the generosity of Two Men and a Truck in Wichita, the cost of transport to Houston is covered so 100% of your donations - and prize money for team recognition at the event if we win! - will be used to directly benefit Hosuton kids. Please consider generously donating:
- Monetary gifts
- New socks (youth sizes)
- No. 2 pencils, erasers, sharpeners and pencil cases
- Washable markers
- Spiral composition books or notebook paper (wide or college rule)
- Pocket folders
Come out to meet district leaders, celebrate community with district staff and students, and help us "pay it forward" to the children of Houston from families in ICT!
