Our last day was a tough goodbye, but we still managed to put in all of our effort to help out around the school. Despite a few of our classmates not showing up, we still put in our all. We continued to teach taxes to the 5th graders and cut out seemingly endless sheets of paper in the copy room. These kids will stay in our prayers and I hope that they took some inspiration from us along the way. That’s a wrap for Stay Week 2020! #goATX
Today we got to further our connection with the kids and help with their classes too. We did a number of things to help out, including: Practicing the Ho down, teaching taxes, and playing basketball with them. Tiger even became the class favorite! More to come tomorrow.
Our team served the students and teachers of Caraway Elementary School today in kindergarten through fifth grade classrooms. Currently this school has 850 students and is overcapacity with their enrollment by 200+ students. With that said, the teachers were appreciative we were there to serve in any capacity. We helped students in the classroom with their reading, writing, math and science skills. Our students were able to assist students with learning disabilities that need more one on one classroom assistance. The kids at Caraway enjoyed having the “big teenagers” on their campus to hang out with them and are overjoyed we are staying all week.
Yesterday, we served Austin Serving Abaco by packing and sorting clothes that will be flown out to the Abaco next week for a clothing drive for the Bohemians and Haitians sizes range from baby to adult.
