Friday night in an Ohio HS non-conference football game Fort Recovery High School and Valley View High School will be uniting as one ‘team’ to help Rockport High School in the Houston area recover from the devastating floods and wind damage that caused damage to the community and the high school this week by Hurricane Harvey.
Valley View and Fort Recovery will send relief funds raised this week to Rockport to assist them in their recovery from the storm damage. Both schools will be collecting donations throughout the school week and between the 1st and 2nd quarter of the football game Friday night.
The schools are both sending signs of encouragement and positive messages to the school letting them know they are thinking about them during this time.
Donations can be dropped off at Fort Recovery High School through Friday and during the game.
Meanwhile at Rockport on the school Facebook page–:
Aransa County ISD officials have been informed that the county will be without power for 2-4 weeks. Due to this and the need for time to repair our facilities, we will be cancelling school for all staff and students for the next two weeks. This will include cancelling any and all extra-curricular practices and events. The goal is to have students back in class the week of September 11th. All updates on the official return date will be posted on the ACISD Facebook page and website. Staff should also monitor their school email for information specific to their return date. Let’s all continue to support each other and our amazing community during this very difficult time.
Aransa County ISD has been blessed with more offers of donations than we can field. In an effort to assist us, the Aransas County Education Foundation has set up a Go Fund Me account. The account title is Rockport School Hurricane Fund and the link is https://www.gofundme.com/rockport-fulton-schools-hurricane
My name is Suzanne Ransleben, and I am Executive Director for the Aransas County ISD Education Foundation. Rockport Fulton schools in Aransas County Texas were devastated by Hurricane Harvey. Rockport and Fulton were ground zero, and our five campuses have catastrophic damage. Buildings are missing, supplies gone. Many students, 65% of whom come from economically disadvantaged households, lost their homes. The whole community is working to restore power and help refugees, but for this storm, the damage was so immense that, as the saying goes, “it will take a village.” Any help you can provide will go to help rebuild our schools and furnish supplies.
The Pirates hope to get back to normal tomorrow –
We are going to start an optional (football) practice this Friday at 4 pm & Saturday at 11 am at the High School. These are optional for players and coaches.
Take care of your families first.
Goal is to play Sinton Next week.
