  • JM Pinwheels Project Raises ove $7000 for Syrian Refugee Children!

    We wanted to thank everyone who so graciously donated their time to making pinwheels, to all the teachers who creatively integrated pinwheels into their classwork and homework, and to all who anonymously dropped off pinwheels in room 204. We wish we could thank everyone by name, but there were so many. We do want to give a special thank you to Mrs. Pate, though, for setting up a pinwheel maker space, and a huge shout out to Ms. Pillars and the ESL students for spearheading the project!
    In all, Jordan-Matthews High School created just over 3500 pinwheels, which translates to more than $7000 in donations toward the education of Syrian refugee children. That's an amazing testament to how small actions can create big impact , and we are grateful for Jet generosity. 
    Some of the pinwheels will be used as part of a commemorative display for the International Rescue Committee, while other will be sent to the Syrian refugee school locations. Awesome job, Jets!!
