October 5, 2009

We had a wonderful week last week with some exciting things happening on our campus! On Saturday, October 3, we had a Outdoor Work Day. We were awarded 50 azaleas from a grant from NC Beautiful and WRAL TV-5. We had over 30 parents and students come out to help us get them planted as well as do some other beautification and clean up around our school. Words cannot express how much we appreciate all of you who came out and helped! There are too many to name, but a special thanks is extended to the following: Mike Diacont of Wildwood Nursery for donating compost and coming out to help direct where each azalea should be placed, as well as donating two camellias, High and High Brothers for donating mulch, John Ross for bringing his tractor, Matt Moriarty for bringing hole diggers, James Paynter for going to pick up the azaleas and Don Mizelle for for bringing a tiller and a host of other tools.

We also had a beautiful Crape Myrtle tree donated to our school by Delta Kappa Gamma Society in memory of Mrs. Geraldine Spraggins. Members of Delta Kappa Gamma as well as members of the Spraggins family came out for a Dedication Ceremony. Our campus is really shaping up and we are so excited about seeing our blooming beauties in the spring.

This week Macon Rural Fire Department will be visiting us on Friday, October 9, at 9 a. m. to present a program for Fire Prevention and Safety week. Ident-a-Kid pictures will also be offered on Friday. If you would like for your child to take a picture to be made into an ID for emergency use, please send your form with payment on Friday.
