FMC is Here for Reaves Elementary
Going back to school may not look the same for most students. The spike of COVID-19 in the Montgomery County area has led schools to rapidly change their basic and routine way they do their work.
Throughout the day, children attending in-person instruction at Reaves Elementary will be asked to wear masks, but during lunch they will need a different kind of protection.
As part of First Methodist Conroe’s Adopt-A-School outreach, the church has been asked to help purchase and construct dividers for the cafeteria.
“The school currently has no outside organizations helping,” said Rev. Janet Stillwell. “The principal is excited about the prospect of having volunteers help with their students as the COVID-19 parameters are lifted.”
Forty-eight dividers will be built out of pvc pipes with clear shower curtains hung between each division so the children can safely eat lunch but still see their friends while they eat.
If you would like to help build and assemble the dividers, please meet at First Methodist Conroe’s back parking lot on Tuesday, August 18 at 8:00 a.m. Building skills are not necessary. Masks are required and social distancing will be practiced.
Anyone who would like to help but cannot attend can donate $75 to cover the cost of one table. All donations are welcome, please indicate Reaves Elementary in the memo line on the check. Mail checks to First Methodist Conroe, 4308 West Davis, 77304.
“Please help us keep the children safe while they come back to school eager to learn and be with their friends,” says FMC Serve Team Leader Tracey Fritsch.
For questions of if you would like to participate, please email Rev. Janet Stilwell at
