Friday 20th AM- PTA will be collecting a $1 optional donation at the doors and students can wear silly socks and hats. Donations will be split between two non-profits who support exceptional children in our community: FOCUS - Comfort. Hope. Fun. Equip for Everyday Life (https://focus-ga.org/) and Gigi’s Playhouse Atlanta – Down Syndrome Achievement Center (https://gigisplayhouse.org/atlanta/)
