Beauclerc, San Jose Elementary Schools Collect Hurricane Maria Relief Supplies for Puerto Rico During Hispanic Heritage Month:
Many wonderful celebrations occurred across DCPS as a part of Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15-October 15. Students at Beauclerc Elementary and San Jose Elementary, led by their Dual Language teachers, decided to participate in a unique way - by initiating a relief effort for the people of Puerto Rico. Throughout the month, school staff, students, and their families dropped off much needed donations of food, water, infant care items, and more at their schools. Beauclerc and San Jose then coordinated with FEMA and the Puerto Rican Chamber of Commerce to pick up and disperse the donations.
