BRIGHTON – Prairie View Middle School National Junior Honor Society students found a unique and heartfelt way to support students at Arapahoe High School in Centennial as they deal with a recent tragedy.
Students created and collected 40 blankets that were presented earlier this week to the Arapahoe High School counseling department so they can be distributed to students. Prairie View Middle School parent April Carroll Robertson approached Prairie View NJHS advisor Tiah Frankish with the idea of students making blankets for Arapahoe High School students. Robertson and Frankish have special ties to the school. Both are 1991 graduates of Arapahoe High School.
A group of nine students agreed to stay after school to cut and tie blankets. They created 10 blankets and Robertson, who is also a paraprofessional at 27J’s Henderson Elementary, collected an additional 30 blankets through donations to deliver to Arapahoe High.
