Help Out Kids in Need!  McElwain Elementary students are in need of your help, Horizon! Most of these elementary kids, who are a part of our district, live in poverty. Most cannot afford their basic needs, especially their school uniforms. What are the kids in need of? Navy/White T-shirts or polo shirts, Navy/Khaki Uniform Pants, (SIZES 5-12), and gently-used or new children’s books.  There will be a bin located in the main office for all donations until Thursday, April 10, 2014. Thank you for supporting the children of Mc Elwain Elementary School.
