MCS students and community to collect supplies for Houston elementary school

Middleburgh remembers the floods from Hurricane Irene in 2011 and the toll it took on our school. In our time of need, many other schools and communities donated school supplies to us. Now it’s time to return the kindness that was shown to us and help another school in need following a devastating hurricane.

Hurricane Harvey struck the Houston area of Texas especially hard in August, dropping historic amounts of rain. MCS has adopted Tinsley Elementary School, part of the Houston Independent School District.

Those students and faculty members are now counting on us.

Between now and November 1st, collection boxes will be placed in Elementary and High School classrooms for donations. The principal of Tinsley Elementary School, Chris Walker, has sent along a list of supplies the school and students need to help them rebuild after the hurricane.

  • 500 Composition Tablets
  • 200 Primary Handwriting Tablets
  • 50 Post-it chart or Anchor Chart tablets
  • 10 Bean Bag chairs for flexible seating
  • 100 boxes of Crayons (triangular, chunky, or normal size)
  • 2 reams of cardstock
  • 25 student dry erase boards and markers
  • 100 markers
  • 100 stress balls
  • 50 timers
  • Pencils and colored pencils
  • Construction paper
  • 50 sets of head phones
  • General school supplies

Special requests:

  • Flexible seating (pillows and other adaptive chairs)
  • IPads/Electronic tablets

We’re also asking that anyone in the community who wants to donate, please donate any of the items above or monetary donations.

The top three high school homerooms with the most donated items will earn breakfast sponsored by Student Congress!

We were so grateful for all the help we received after Irene’s devastating floods. Let’s pay it forward to others who need our help following Harvey!

Thank you for your support!
