Video+Story: Jesus Chapel Teachers surprise students with Easter gifts

Jesus Chapel School teachers and staff surprised their students during their distance learning time at their homes on Good Friday.

Principal Alba Wilcox says that in the midst of everything that is going on, the school wants to celebrate the hope that Christ’s resurrection brings.

“This is a weekend of hope in the Christian faith,” Wilcox said. “To us, the resurrection of Jesus Christ is monumental and it gives us hope that there is a better day coming. What we wanted to do this weekend is to remind the kids of the hope we have in Jesus and the hope that they should have that better days are coming.”

The teachers drove to the homes of every student to safely deliver Easter eggs, treats and to bring hope and tell them how much they miss them and pray for them during their time apart.

Jesus Chapel, founded in 1978 in east-central El Paso, is a private Christian School serving PreK-12th grade students from the area and offers a full educational experience along with Fine Arts, Art, Vocal, Instrumental, Drama, Academics, Athletics (6 man football, volleyball, basketball, track, cheerleading.)

Like schools throughout the country, JCS has distance learning in place through at least early May.
