MCAA Endowment with the Marietta Schools Foundation
The Marietta City Schools Foundation supports our entire school district. MCAA created an endowment through the Foundation last year. Our operating budget for the 2020-2021 school year has been cut due to COVID, so the funds collected will go toward staff development, campus improvements, and teaching supplies that will benefit ALL students.
CLICK HERE to donate directly - please indicate MCAA in the "Additional Information" section.
Everyone that donates $20 or more will receive a NEW MCAA magnet!
Treat your family and yourself with a home cooked meal - cooked by someone else! Pre-order from Marietta's very own Carriage House and a % of the proceeds will go to the Foundation. CLICK HERE FOR A FANTASTIC DINNER
The House that orders the most dinners will earn a badge!
Calling all Rockets!! The 2020 –2021 Reflections competition is here.

The Center for Family Resources: Thanks for Giving
Because every family deserves the Thanksgiving tradition. It’s more than a meal.
For 35 years, the Center for Family Resources (CFR) has been providing families in Cobb County with food for Thanksgiving~ they believe that Thanks for Giving is more than a meal. It is an opportunity for families to create and continue family traditions, to gather with loved ones and to give thanks in a way meaningful to them.
CFR’s goal is 1,000 Thanks for Giving food boxes for 1,000 families. Marietta City Schools has always participated in this effort and while this year might look different we know we can still help make this happen.
How can you help?
