“As always, it was a pleasure to have Rush Creek out at Patrick. I am so glad that we have a partnership. You have been a beacon of light to the staff and the community and I greatly appreciate it.” -Matthew A. Brown, Donna Shepherd Elementary Principal
“A few volunteers assisted a teacher who is coming back from maternity leave. She was so excited to be able to play worship music while we worked and was so thankful for the help since going back to work will be extra hard this year with a 3 month old at home.” -Charlotte Anderson Elementary
“The teachers were blown away by all the volunteers were willing and able to do! Some teachers cried because they were so thankful. This elementary doesn’t have a PTA or much support when it comes to prepping for the school year.”
