"FHS Rachel's Challenge In Action"



The Floresville High School ROTC Cadet Chorale and Student Choir sang its "An American Christmas" program for students at Poth High School and Sacred Heart Elementary School after singing at the Floresville Veterans home. Chorale members who recently experienced FHS hosted Rachel's Challenge efforts wanted to take "random acts of kindness" into the surrounding community. The group also included FHS Cheer and Dance members and FHS Middle School choir members. Also, Floresville South Elementary School children made beautiful Christmas cards for Veterans and the Poth High School and Sacerd Heart students. Many thanks to Principal Todd Pawelek, of Poth High School and Principal Hilary Reile, of Sacred Heart, for giving the FISD students the opportunity to participate in this meaningful Rachel's Challenge community service effort during the Christmas Season.
