We surpassed our goal of $30,000.00 during the 2016-17 "8 Days for Education" Fund Drive! Huge shout outs coming your way this morning!!!!  After looking through the entire Bill Book for Junior Youth Assembly, it has come to my attention that THREE of our Metter Middle School students were chosen as bill authors for this year's Junior Youth Assembly.  That is 3 out of 48 total chosen across the state of Georgia!!  What an accomplishment!!  Thank you to the Foundation for making this opportunity possible through your generous grant contribution and thank you parents for allowing your children to take part in this incredible learning opportunity!
