Twenty teachers at Hempstead ISD were excited when their names were called to receive a “School Supply” cake at the annual convocation as part of the “Adopt a Hempstead ISD Teacher” event.
School Board Trustee Connie Wawarofsky made the presentations to the staff as she called ten teachers from secondary campuses and ten teachers from elementary campuses.
“The community response was fantastic,” said Wawarofsky. She started the “Adopt a Teacher” project in July and the community joined in this year to help teachers in the district. “We hope to continue this project and have every teacher adopted next year.”
As we all know, teachers spend money out of their own pocket each year to provide needed supplies for their classrooms. Through the “Adopt a Teacher” project, community members are able to come together to help ease this burden for our teachers. Each “school supply” cake was built with approximately $50 worth of supplies that were geared toward the campus the teacher was assigned to.
Hempstead ISD would like to congratulate all the teachers who received a gift and thank all the community members who made it possible through their donations.

Also a huge thank you to Connie Wawarofsky for gathering the supplies and creating the “School Supply” cakes. One Town...One Team...One Goal!!!
