Pct. 2 delivers 1400 Thanksgiving dinners

Precinct 2 Commissioner Adrian Garcia, at center, poses with workers and volunteers that gave out these food boxes and Turkeys for Thanksgiving to 1400 families that registered their need.

Harris County Precinct 2 — Commissioner Adrian Garcia hosted “Turkey Thursday” last Thursday, where he distributed turkeys to families at 10 Harris County Precinct 2 Community Centers.

Each location gave out 140 turkeys to registered families. This is the first time in Harris County history a precinct distributes a total of 1,400 turkeys in one day.

“Turkey Thursday” was possible thanks to partnership with non-profit Precinct2Gether, HEB Grocery Stores, and Partners in Primary Care.

ALDINE – It was a cloudy morning filled with sunny smiles on Friday, November 20 at Stehlik Elementary in Aldine ISD. Stehlik hosted a food drive to support students, families, and community members. Texas State Representative Armando Walle and Lone Star Trustee Myriam Saldivar surprised the campus with a $750 donation to support the food drive.

“I am truly speechless,” said Karen Wilkerson, principal of Stehlik Elementary. “The donation is needed this year. We know our families and the community has been hit hard financially, due to the economic impact of the pandemic. We are a family and we take care of each other.”

Last Saturday afternoon, Nov. 21, the MacArthur Generals faced off against the Davis Falcons, who defeated them 42-13.

Coach Wayne Crawford’s Generals took on coach Scott Joseph’s Falcons at Thorne Stadium. The Generals are led by running back Terrance Franklin (290 yards, 4 TDs), while the Falcons are led by running backs Azavion Kegler (113 yards) and Josh Garuba (3 TDs).

The Generals’ next game against Spring on Thanksgiving Day was cancelled. This will mark the final weekend of play of the District 14-6A season for AISD’s five varsity squads, and it appears Eisenhower, Nimitz and MacArthur remain alive for the league’s fourth and final playoff spot.

Message from Superintendent Goffney

Message From the Superintendent, Nov. 17, 2020

Dear Aldine Community,

We are just a few days away from Thanksgiving break. As a reminder, district buildings and campuses will be closed between November 23-27. Families can pick up free meal bundles today and Thursday. Classes will resume Monday, Nov. 30, with curbside meal service resuming on Tuesday, Dec. 1.

I’m sure our entire community is ready to take some time away from our routines to rest and reflect with loved ones. However, as COVID-19 numbers continue increasing throughout Texas and in our community, please remember to exercise safe judgment during this time. Check out this advice from a Houston-area infectious disease physician about how to celebrate family gatherings safely during the holidays.

In this week’s message, I have some important updates related to the remainder of the fall semester. I ask that you read through them carefully so that you don’t miss any crucial actions required.
