Congratulations to the staff, students, and parents who helped make this year's United Way Campaign a HUGE success!  With the leadership of Dr. Kathy Sikes, the SDM team raised $6,490.23.  Our school sponsored staff dress down days, student participation days, and staff drawings for baked goods.  The final fund raiser consisted of a grade level competition with the winning grade receiving an extra recess AND the opportunity to put a pie in the face of our administrators, Mrs. Morris and Mr. Sasser.  Fifth grade won this competition by raising $183, and we thank our administrators for their willingness to "serve"!


At SDM, we teach students that giving to organizations like United Way is a way they can become involved in their community.  We are very proud of the way everyone at SDM showed their committment to others and the results of this year's collections!

The Vidalia City School System had a grand total of $14,534.91 to contribute to United Way this year.  All schools participated with J.D. Dickerson raising $2,714.00, J.R. Trippe raising $1,421.00, and Vidalia High raising $2,029.68.
