Hospital staff needed a morale boost and campuses across the district came through by the bushel- four bushels-full, in fact. Partners in Education collected thousands of notes of encouragement from around the district, with over half of Katy ISD’s 72 campuses participating, from Pre-K all the way through high school students.</font></font></font></span></p><p class="MsoNormal"><span><font color="#000000"><font size="3"><font face="Calibri">Katy ISD showcased their heart with this act of gratitude, with all Memorial Hermann staff from doctors and nurses to custodians receiving well-wishes.

Miller Career and Technology Clinical Rotation and Pharmacy Tech students created a Paper-Mache Prescription of Gratitude container full of encouraging notes; Winborn Elementary painted “Super Nurse” posters; the Life Skills students of Katy Junior High felt like super heroes themselves when they designed their cards for healthcare heroes and the Leonard Elementary Kindness Club each crafted Lifesaver Snowmen, to name a few. </font></font></font></span></p><p class="MsoNormal"><span><font color="#000000"><font size="3"><font face="Calibri">Partners in Education hand delivered the bushels of love last Thursday to Memorial Hermann. “We are incredibly appreciative of the drawings, cards and letters our healthcare workers received from Katy ISD students,” said Jerry Ashworth, SVP and CEO of Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital and Memorial Hermann Cypress Hospital. “This kind gesture was truly the ‘pick-me-up’ our staff needed during these stressful times.
