This week, most of the Perryton ISD administrative team made the almost 700 mile trek to West Columbia Texas to help the Columbia-Brazoria school district. C-BISD was one of many districts affected by Hurricane Harvey. They were able to re-open this week. Thanks in part to help from the citizens of Perryton.
PISD has collected cash donations as well as clothing, baby supplies, paper good and cleaning supplies and those items, filling two trucks, were delivered Monday & Wednesday. Campus principals, Tiffany Bietz, Matt Birdwell, Dimitri Garcia, Ludi Martin and Read Cates left early Monday morning with the largest load. Upon arrival, they helped arrange and distribute those items to students and families in need.
An additional load was taken on Wednesday by Superintendent, Robert Hall along with Assistant Superintendent, Keith Langfitt and Kinder Principal, Dent Felix.
Bietz, who started her teaching career at C-BISD, was overwhelmed by the reception they were given. “It was truly a blessing to us, as an administrative team. They were amazed that we actually stayed and helped out instead of just dropping stuff off.”
Hall thanked his leadership team for their efforts, “I would like to extend my appreciation to our Administrative Team here at Perryton ISD and their efforts to help the school children at Columbia-Brazoria ISD. The team worked diligently to put this relief effort together in a very short amount of time. They gave of themselves, their personal finances and time at a very busy part of the school year. These leaders stepped up, delivered and were humbled all in a week’s time”
Columbia High School thanked the Perryton community at their Friday pep rally. Video of that event can be seen on the PISD Facebook page. Photos of the trip are also available at www.perrytonisd.org.
