Preston Hollow Elementary School is PHWC's current Philanthropy
Regarding the After-School Program, we have been contacted by InSpire (the program being used this year). This program needs our help each weekday from 3:30pm-5:30pm. The 26 children participating are split into smaller groups based on age and to help with social distancing. Volunteers are needed to help the children with homework, play games, enjoy crafts, and assist with a holiday party. Ideally, two volunteers are needed each day. To participate, all volunteers must provide some personal information for background checks. Please sign up on our website https://prestonhollowwomensclub.org Login and edit your personal profile – under Special Interest Groups, check Preston Hollow Elementary School Volunteer and press Save.
This year, we are introducing Adopt a Teacher/Classroom where volunteers can help remotely. This could be done daily, weekly, or as needed. At this time, only volunteers for after-school are being allowed into the school so this will be completely virtual. There is currently one first grade and one second grade teacher who are excited to get started. The teachers may ask for help with reading, math, art, etc. Please sign up on our website same as above. Volunteers will need to have a background check.

With 58% of the students back in-person, their wish for this year is to increase the outdoor learning experience with social distancing by adding canopies, furniture, and whiteboards within two interior courtyard areas. The interior spaces are ideal to keep the children focused with fewer distractions and allows the students to remove their masks. Your monetary donation would be most appreciated, and instructions can be found below.
We have set up an Amazon Wish List where you can select and purchase books which will be sent directly to the school. We will continue to add books as they are requested –please, hard cover versions only. The list can be found at:
