VOLUNTEERS WANTED

Parents, I'd love an extra set of hands in the classroom this Thursday, 12/14 as students experience Henry Ford's assembly line. If you're interested in helping, please contact Mrs. Akin at chakin@atlanta.k12.ga.us. Mrs. Akin's homeroom will do this activity from 8:00-9:00, while Mrs. Schirmer's homeroom will do this activity from 11:00-12:00. Thank you for considering.
