LOA sophomore Sydney Horton is asking all students, teachers and members of the community of Greensboro to wear green in support of all the students in Greene County. Several local schools and businesses will be having a coin drive. Also, she is asking that all local businesses donate the coins in their cash registers at the end of the business day on April 29. Additionally, any business or individual can make a donation of coins, cash or check and all money raised on April 29 will be donated from The Gifted Scholarship Fund directly to The Greene County School System's program for gifted students!
LOA students may wear a green school-appropriate polo shirt or t-shirt with a uniform bottom, hair accessories for the ladies, or socks. Coin collection containers will be at Kerry and Jamison's desks.
LOA will join State School Superintendent Richard Woods in honoring the children of military families during April, the Month of the Military Child. “It is so important that we take the time to honor our students of military families – we owe our freedom to the sacrifices of these families,” Superintendent Woods said.
In recognition of the strength and sacrifice of these families, LOA will host a Military Families Breakfast on Friday, April 29, during school breakfast hours (drop in from 7:00 a.m. - 7:30 a.m.). We invite every parent and grandparent who is currently serving or has served in the military to join us as we say "thank you!"
