Thoughts For Texas

Students of Central Boulevard Elementary School made heartfelt cards for the students and faculty of Dickinson Independent School District in Dickinson, Texas, which was devastated by Hurricane Harvey.

Established a few years ago at Bethpage, Thoughtful Thursday is a schoolwide community service initiative in which the entire school dedicates one Thursday a month to bettering the community through a project. The initiative reinforces the school’s message of “character builds success.”

Kicking off the first Thoughtful Thursday of the year, classes decided to help the children and teachers of Dickinson by sending them handwritten cards with colorful drawings and messages of hope. 

In groups, students drew hearts, smiles and rainbows and penned messages such as “hope your school gets better soon,” “thinking of you” and “we are here to help you.” 

In addition to this project, classes throughout the district collected school supplies and toiletries for Dickinson.
