As a way to show our PRIDE and Involvement in our community, Team SDM will be raising funds for two organizations this spring, Make-A-Wish® of Georgia and Toombs County Relay for Life. We are aware of two children in the Toombs County area who are on the Make-A-Wish list, and 100% of the Make-A Wish funds we collect will be designated for Toombs County recipients. Also, funds collected for Relay for Life will be used to support the American Cancer Society in a variety of ways through research, awareness, and assistance.
As a member of Team SDM, there will be a variety of opportunities in which your child may participate in the next few months. Activities scheduled to be included for Make-A-Wish are recess snack sales, sports bracelet sales, a “kiss a pig” contest, drawings for autographed tees by VHS athletic teams, dress down days, and a school sock-hop dance. In addition, staff members will have the opportunity to participate in weekly drawings and dress down days. Relay for Life fund raisers will include staff, parent, student, and/or business donations, luminary sales in honor or in memory of loved ones who have experienced cancer, and classroom canister coin collections.
The administrators and staff at SDM believe it is important to exemplify and encourage giving to those in need, especially when life-threatening medical conditions occur. Team SDM looks forward to being very successful in these endeavors, and we want to thank you in advance for you and your child’s involvement!
