Let’s Pack the PAC for Hardin-Jefferson High School and Middle School!!!!!

posted Sep 14, 2017, 1:59 PM by Kesha Simmons

We will be accepting donations of school supplies for the hurricane and flood victims in Hardin-Jefferson ISD near Beaumont.  Many students and teachers lost homes and many essential supplies, and the Middle School was a total loss. Middle school students will be housed at other campuses until a temporary school can be constructed with portable buildings, which could take up to 6 weeks.

We want to help ease the burden of getting them back to school!

Supplies needed:


1-inch binders

Notebook paper                                              Post-its

Copy paper                                                      AAA and AA batteries

Pencils                                                             Kleenex

Colored pencils                                               Paper towels

Notecards                                                        Hand sanitizer

Paper clips                                                       Ziploc bags (all sizes)

Pens (blue, black, red)


Spiral notebooks

Dictionaries/thesauruses/Spanish-English dictionaries

And we need BOXES to put these items in!!

We will continue to update this list as we get more information.  Please take all donations to the PAC. (Pack the PAC!!) We will be collecting now through next Friday, Sept. 22.

Please bring any monetary donations to Mrs. Haineault, the bookkeeper.  We also have a PayForIt account set up for online donations.  You can bring gift cards for teachers (Amazon, Teachers Pay Teachers, Walmart, etc.) to Mrs. McDowell (C-4).

One last thing…we are having T-shirts made to support our new Hawk friends.  T-shirts will be $10 each, with all proceeds going to Hardin-Jefferson.  If you want to give $20, we can send a shirt to an HJ teacher as well!  We should have samples early next week.  Place your order with Mrs. McDowell (C-4).  We will be taking orders for the next couple of weeks (deadline to be announced later).

Ok, Mustangs, let’s help these HJ Hawks get their wings back!!!!
