Greeley-Evans School District 6 is collecting hygiene and cold weather items to distribute to students in need in honor of November's National Homeless and Runaway Youth Awareness month.
District 6's Families in Transition Program enrolls students in school, and provides resources and materials to support students in achieving their education. Over the last six school years, the Families in Transition Program has identified and assisted an average of 635 students per school year. Families and youth in our community may find themselves in transitional living situations due to a variety of circumstances, including job loss, home loss, divorce, medical conditions and a variety of economic factors that impact families.
Donations are now being accepted to support students identified in the Families in Transition Program in recognition of the awareness month. Hygiene items are used every day by most people, but a student living in transitional housing may not readily have those items.
Also, as the cold weather season begins, students are in need of winter clothing that will keep them warm as they walk to school, wait for the school bus and play outside at recess.
This week’s District 6 Student Athlete of the Week is Manny Araujo from Northridge High School. Manny is a junior with a 3.7 GPA and is on the Grizzlies’ football team.
Jermaine Gordo is a fantastic example of a student who exudes Heath Pride. He puts his all into everything he does. He sets goals for himself, and he works hard to attain them. He makes me smile everyday because I see his enthusiasm and his successful future! ~ Dr. Blakley Wallace, principal
