Randall School Student Council started the year with a mission. They wanted to help those hit by the terrible hurricanes.

After much discussion in their first meeting, they decided to do a Pay-to-Play to raise money for a school hit hard by Hurricane Harvey. In addition, the members decided to donate $1 from the admission price to their Fall Dance to this cause. One of events took place on Friday, Sept. 15, with students paying $1 to participate in Farmer Day. Then on Friday, Sept. 22, Randall hosted a dance for students in grades 6-8 who attend Randall, Lakewood, Wheatland, Riverview, Trevor-Wilmot, and Brighton. Of the $5 admission, $1 went to the relief fund.

The school chosen was Rockport-Fulton School District, located in Aransas County in Texas. The buildings are uninhabitable and all the supplies are gone. Many of their students, 65 percent of whom are economically disadvantaged, lost their homes.

With all their efforts, Student Council raised $675.  This money will be sent via a secure site through GoFundMe: https://www.gofundme.com/ rockport-fulton-schools- hurricane

Randall students encourage community members to join them in supporting schools in this area.
