Sienna Plantation is joining with Heritage Rose Elementary to enhance school events and applaud teachers through a $50,000 donation to the school.
A donation of $10,000 will be made to the school over the next five years through the Sienna Plantation Community Association, Inc., (SPCAI) Community Enhancement Fund, which is dedicated to support community activities, education, technology and health and wellness.
“The fund is designed to complement the homeowner’s association and support items that are an investment into the future of Sienna Plantation and its residents,” said Alvin San Miguel, general manager of Sienna Plantation.
This year’s donation is centered on teacher engagement and community activities, with a portion of the funds used to host more than 2,000 people who attended a Meet the Teacher Night at the school earlier in the year. The donation also was used for Robotics equipment and will be used for a spring event for students, teachers and parents.
“You won’t believe how helpful this donation has been,” said Lavanta Williams, principal of Heritage Rose Elementary and the district’s Elementary School Principal of the Year. “The funds are helping us with two major events, the first one being a meet-the-teacher night that had a very impressive turnout. Through this donation, we are able to get the community involved and more parents into the school.”
Sienna Plantation has made numerous donations to local schools through the Sienna Plantation Community Services Foundation, which is similar to the SPCAI Community Enhancement Fund, helping fund such items as a shade pavilion, video equipment, iPads, school events and more.
Heritage Rose is one of four Fort Bend ISD elementary schools that serves Sienna Plantation. The community also is zoned to Baines Middle School, First Colony Middle School and Ridge Point High School. All of the schools serving Sienna Plantation hold a “Met Standard” rating from the Texas Education Agency, the highest given.
