Good morning PS10 Families,
On Tuesday night, the Title 1 Committee hosted a letter-writing event in order to create messages of hope, support and love for the teenagers being held at the Homestead Temporary Shelter for Unaccompanied Minors in Homestead, Florida. Together, we made almost 200 cards, drawings and notes, written in Spanish, and brimming with the best of PS10’s enthusiasm and kindness.
Many families have asked if it’s too late to make letters. The answer is no! There are over 2,000 migrant kids at the shelter awaiting assistance with their asylum claims, so the more notes the better! A manilla envelope is stationed in the PTA room off of the cafeteria, and another will be available in the main office. Please have them in by Monday, May 6th. Please keep letters short, anonymous and hopeful, written in English or Spanish. They can be any size, and drawings without words are fine too. Some of the messages we used last night were along the lines of:
You are important and valued. Eres importante y valorado.
You are not alone. No estás solo.
You are strong. Eres fuerte.
I admire your courage. Admiro tu valentía.
We love you and send you hugs. Los queremos y les enviamos abrazos.
Many thanks from the Title 1 Committee.
