SCA: Kidnap-a-class

It’s that time of year where the Student Council Association sponsors “Kidnap a Class”. Please participate by donating money to each one of your classes. And, the money goes to a very good cause. The money pays for a Christmas party and other events for special needs children in the Athens City School System. It also helps to pay for Christmas presents for our Christmas angels from our local elementary schools. Without your help and donations, these projects cannot happen. Money will be collected Monday through Thursday, Nov 16 -19, so please be as generous as possible!
