WIldcats Support the Coweta County Community

Faculty, Staff, Parents and Students...

For the month of October, Smokey Road will be taking donations and can goods for United Way, Coweta Community Foundation, and Can-a-Thon charities. With 100% participation, students will be afforded the opportunities to attend both the Powder Puff Game and Dance Competition scheduled for this week. So, let's get those donations in Wildcats as we anticipate a busy but, fun-filled week of activities.

Our PTO is Second to None!
