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 continued to help out the Facilities Department by raking leaves, cleaning, hauling trash, hanging posters…Several HP students were able to interact in ASL with TSD employees and students. The appreciation from the school was heartfelt. Mrs. McCarty wants to make this a monthly service project next year!
107 bags of leaves raked, 2 gyms, 6 locker rooms, elementary school dorm, health center, 3 busses, 5 classrooms and 30 iPads cleaned, 100s of posters hung and 3 miles walked. Grateful teachers, coaches and facilities staff.
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.
Jamaica ASL group hauled trash, power washed and cleaned the Pavilion at the Austin Deaf Club. Operated by the Austin Association of the Deaf, the facility is a hub for the Deaf Community in Austin.
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.
