MISD Adopt-A-Kid Program Delivers Christmas Presents to Elementary Students

Christmas came early for several Manor ISD elementary students on Wednesday.
The district held its 25th Annual Manor Adopt-A-Kid event, which started at Manor High School, but has expanded to Manor New Tech High and Manor Excel Academy. Each year, the MISD Student and Family Support Services Department identifies district elementary students who may not have a happy holiday. Once identified, high school students "adopt" the children by receiving a wish list of gift ideas, clothing, and shoe sizes. 

This year, 72 elementary students were adopted at the Manor High School, as well as a few at Manor Excel Academy. They were bused to the campus. Once on campus, they were picked up and taken to their adopted room (including two at the ACC on Hwy 290). Once in rooms, they opened presents, ate food, played games, and watched movies. At the end of the event, the adoptees were returned to the cafeteria with their gifts. Student Council members load all the gifts on the buses and accompanied the kids back to their home campus. Elementary students came from seven different MISD campuses this year.The Student Council members unloaded the gifts to the front office for the parents to pick up. 

This caring act will also be held at Manor New Tech High School Thursday, December 21st.
