Picture 8On Saturday, March 26, Rockwall ISD will make serving others a community-wide event with SSO Day.  “Students Serving Others” Day will be filled with multiple hands-on service learning activities for students in grades 5 through 12 and a “Stadium Experience” that will focus on community service for students in grades pre-k through 4.  Throughout the day, we have three elementary campuses that will be hosting events that are targeted at district-wide and community-wide participation and we encourage all families to support these efforts.

1) BLOOD DRIVE — Dorris A. Jones Elementary is conducting a community-wide blood drive.  The Carter Blood Care mobile unit will be stationed at the Rockwall County Library on Townsend Drive.  Sign up times are from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.  You are welcome to sign up in advance for a specific time or you may just show up at the mobile unit on the day of the blood drive.  If you would like more information on how to sign up in advance, contact Cathy Conger at 972-772-1070.

2) PANCAKE BREAKFAST BENEFITTING BOYS & GIRLS CLUB — Howard Dobbs Elementary is hosting a pancake breakfast with all proceeds benefitting the neighboring Boys & Girls Club.  Tickets are $2 in advance and $3 at the door.  The breakfast will take place from 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. at the Dobbs campus.  Contact Ruth Johnson or Dina Rowe at 972-771-5232 for advance tickets.

3) WALK/RUN A LAP FOR SPECIAL OLYMPICS — Grace Hartman Elementary is hosting a walk-a-thon benefitting Special Olympics.  The event will take place from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Wilkerson-Sanders Memorial Stadium.  Participants can come at any point during this time and donate $1 for each lap that you walk or run.  Contacts are Christine Roach and Jennifer Smiley at 972-772-2080.

These are wonderful events that are open to anyone.  Please help support SSO Day by having breakfast at Dobbs, stopping off at the stadium for a lap around the track and ending at the Carter Blood Care unit at the Library–or any combination of those events that works for you and your family.  Thank you so much for your support of SSO Day.
