The Castaways Thrift Shop, a non-profit organization whose primary purpose is giving back to the community, is donating $1,000 to Rockport-Fulton High School Library.
Rockport-Fulton High School Library is planning to use this generous donation to create a Reading Garden and outdoor classroom. RFHS Garden Club students, along with their sponsor, and Environmental Science teacher, Kerri Mitchell, will design the garden space with flora that is indigenous to the Coastal Bend.
RFHS Library Media Specialist, Kathleen Cady, would like to express her gratitude to the Castaways organization. She shared, “This donation will transform an unused space into a gathering place for students to read quietly, study, or eat their lunch. Teachers can also use it for instructional space, as well.”
The ACISD Education Foundation has already generously contributed $1,000 in a Treasure Chest grant for this purpose.
Rockport-Fulton High School students are anxiously awaiting the renovation, which will occur in early fall of 2017.
Meagan Brown, RFHS senior and library science student, was on-hand with Mrs. Cady to receive the donation at Castaways Thrift Shop, Tuesday, May 9, 2017.
