Dear Stratford Community,

I hope that this message finds you and your entire family safe and sound. In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, I am absolutely heartbroken by the tremendous devastation that has been caused. Over the last few days, I have witnessed the effects of the storm first-hand as I have assisted my own parents to clean their flooded home. I know that many of you are currently enduring the same gut-wrenching process, and I hope and pray that you find comfort in family, friends, and community during this awful time.

Since the rain ceased, the Stratford Team has been hard at work planning for how we can assist affected families during the recovery effort. I have been humbled by the incredible outpouring of support from Stratford teachers and staff, student groups, and the community at-large. Many of you have reached out to me or other Stratford team members to offer your assistance in a time of great need for our community, and I can’t thank you enough for that.

As we now turn our attention to mobilizing these many volunteers, it is important that we have a clear picture of who is in need and what those needs are. To that end, I am asking that you please complete a short survey to let us know how the storm has impacted you and your family. The survey can be found here: https://goo.gl/forms/1GPwmbhCKezD4lrC3

This survey also provides an opportunity for those of you who are able and wish to assist in the recovery effort to let us know that you’ll be right there with us. Our team will reach out to you to let you know specifically how you can help in the coming days. In the meantime, please consider a financial donation to the Spring Branch Education Foundation’s Campaign to support SBISD families: https://goo.gl/c1vHrW

Stratford PTSA is also organizing a gift card drive that will directly benefit Spartans and their families. Please look for additional information about that in the coming days. If you are able to assist, it would mean a great deal to all of us.

When we began the 2017-2018 school year, none of us could have predicted that we would find ourselves in this situation today. While we may not have asked for it, this school year has now taken on a whole new meaning. 2017- 2018 is now about community. It’s about a group of people coming together to support one another in a time of great need. Stratford is not just a school. Stratford is people – administrators, teachers, counselors, staff members, students, families, and community members – working together. Stratford America is resilient and strong. In times like these, the most important thing we can do is support each other.

With incredible Spartan pride,

Chad Crowson
Principal
