Last year, the SDM Relay for Life team raised over $10,000 for the American Cancer Society and won the award for the most money raised in Toombs County. This was achieved with great staff and student participation, the support of our school administrators, and the generosity of many! This year we have twenty-four staff members leading the team and are looking forward to surpassing our efforts in 2010. Just a few of the activities planned for the students so far include homeroom competition collections, snack sales, and donations to keep the Purple People Eater on the move to other classrooms. Staff members will be participating in dress down days, weekly drawings, and a teacher meltdown/weight loss competition. In addition, a schoolwide event will be held during the spring Book Fair. While the events planned are fun, we use this opportunity to teach students the importance of being involved in your community and how to work together towards a common goal.  If you would like to help our team in any way, please contact SDM.
