Hello ELSBers and newcomers alike! :)
I hope everyone’s semester is starting off well. John and I had our first kickoff event downtown at the Health Sciences Campus. This was a more informational event to discuss Byck Elementary, why it’s important that we provide them with school supplies, etc. We had a lot of fun planning it! (And the Jimmy Johns was pretty great, too)
We will be decorating ~donation boxes~ at our next meeting September 13th, in the ELSB office (6-7pm) and placing them at the HSC shortly after. We have 10 boxes, so we would love getting all the help we can! <3 Come show out for the awesome kiddos @ Byck Elementary!
My favorite part of this event was definitely working with the principal of Byck. She expressed sincere gratitude and provided us with some really cool info to get our event rolling. It was a real awesome experience!
