Clyde Erwin Elementary Magnet School is thankful to Restore Jacksonville Church for their generous donation of $5,250.00 to purchase more laptops for students in grades kindergarten through second grade. We have been fundraising, grant writing, and using school funds this year to purchase laptops for our students in younger grades, and this money will purchase 15 computers. Onslow County Schools provides 1:1 laptops for students in grades 3-12.
Pastor Roger Burns visited Clyde Erwin Elementary Magnet School and met with Dr. Patterson in spring, 2018 about establishing a partnership, and it has been very beneficial for both the school and the church. Church volunteers have helped with school landscaping and plan to volunteer to read to students and proctor during EOG testing this year. In spring, 2019, Restore Jacksonville Church began renting the school facility and meeting in the auditorium on Sunday mornings. Clyde Erwin Elementary Magnet School and Restore Jacksonville Church are excited to continue our partnership for the benefit of the students.
