HURRICANE RELIEF EFFORTS 

Our hearts go out to the victims of Hurricane Harvey. The Cove community is committed to showing them we care. Please join us in our efforts as we collect Coins for Kids. 

Please send in your pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. We will be collecting change throughout September. Cove will be sending our collection to a vetted charity focused on students and schools in the affected areas and chosen by our student council. 

We will also be sending notes and drawings made by our students to a school in Houston at an appropriate time. 

We hope our show of support brings some comfort to those in need. For more information, please contact Stephanie Sanderman at ssanderman@coveschool.org or at (847) 562-2100.
