The group interested in advocating for the renovation & re-opening of
Morris F.X. Jeff School as an EXCELLENT community-supported ,
universal-access public school will be meeting again this Saturday,
March 15th, 2:00 p.m. at Bibleway Church (Orleans & N. Rendon).

Updates @ 2:00 pm; canvassing training @2:30 pm; canvassing in
surrounding neighborhood @ 3:00 p.m. We NEED VOLUNTEERS to help
with the canvassing, but even if you cannot commit to the canvassing,
please come for 2 p.m. to learn what this group is doing and
planning, and to get added to our contact list!

This school borders the edge of Mid-City (@St. Ann & N. Rendon), and,
if re-opened, would definitely serve kids in the Mid-City

Thanks for your interest & support, and hope to see you this Saturday!
