Thanksgiving treat for teachers-calling all bakers
This year, I'd like to add a sweet touch to this - and have homemade desserts available for teachers. I am looking for bakers who would be willing to make and bring in a pie or dessert to add to our Thanksgiving table. If you bake and would be willing to do this, please click below and let me know of your willingness. Shhhhhh...don't tell the teachers - I want them to be surprised, if possible. Thank you for all you do to support our school and show your care, kindness and love to the faculty and staff!
Is your child looking for a job?

Beta Club partners with Make-A-Wish
This year, Richmond Hill High School Beta Club has decided to devote their time to one single service project – adopting a single wish through Make-A-Wish Georgia, granting a wish to one local child with a life-threatening illness.
