Hays CISD student leader Keira Redburn (front, center) gave a presentation to Hays County Complete Count Committee members on the importance of having everyone counted in the 2020 Census. She also told them that she and other students have organized a fun event for kids of all ages on March 7, and invited the public to attend.
Hays CISD student groups – budding community leaders – are making sure you know how important the Census is to Education and so much more! Join them for an Everyone Counts! event that will also honor Texas Independence Day.
On Saturday March 7, from 9:30 a.m.-11:15 a.m., join students on the grounds of the historic Hays County Courthouse, 111 E. San Antonio St., San Marcos, for free arts & crafts, face painting, special speakers, and music from Elm Grove Elementary Choir, Johnson HS Black & Gold Choir, and Carpenter Hill Elementary Choir.
The event is free. There will be an on-site booth collecting donations for Hays CISD’s Hays Hope 2 Go, which will help end food insecurity for students who are facing economic hardships. Donations of Spaghettios (7.5oz), mac & cheese cups, granola bars, and oatmeal packets are especially appreciated. More info about Hope 2 Go is at https://www.hayscisd.net/hayshope2go.
Hays CISD students have been working hard to make sure that everyone is counted for the upcoming Census. The fun will happen rain or shine, on the grounds or in the Courthouse. Bring a lawn chair or blanket if you wish.
