The Community Fair was canceled due to inclement weather on August 25th. However, donations of school supplies, backpacks and T-Shirts were sent to our KISD Schools to put the items in the hands of the children that need them.
As we are enrolling new children to the district that might have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey or are in need of school supplies and clothing, we are trying our very best to meet their needs.
As a school district, on a yearly basis from Federal Programs/Title 1, we are able to provide 9 sets of uniforms to each of our schools for Pre-K through 8th grade. In addition, the Kleberg Area Association of Realtors provide shoes to our district children. Therefore, our Federal Programs Office provides 5 pairs of shoes to each of our schools for needy children.
A couple of entities have offered to collect school supplies and sets of uniforms to be provided to children that were impacted by Hurricane Harvey that are enrolling in our schools. If these uniforms come to us, they will go immediately to these children and if there are any extras, they will be sent to other Texas areas in need.
At this time, we would like to express our most heartfelt thanks to the following Community Sponsors for their donations which include:

Gear Up Grant, Dr. Mary Gonzalez-TAMUK
Kleberg Area Association of Realtors,
Liz Saenz: Caring Helping Hands Ministries, Inc.,
