NEW Fundraiser – Decorate a Publix cake for Mother’s Day.

Orders must be in by Friday, March 27th. There are NO exceptions to this, as Publix needs the time to order supplies and prepare. We are looking forward to this fun event!

Annual Paulding County School District Food Drive

Next week (February 3rd – 9th), Abney will be participating in a countywide canned food drive that will help support Helping Hands of Paulding County. Helping Hands is one of our community supporters for our backpack program. They have helped our program tremendously, so let’s give back to them.

Collection boxes will be set up in the front atrium/lobby for students, parents, and staff to drop off donations. The 2 schools that donate the most food, by weight, will win cash prizes.

Can you help us win? (get it? can?) THANK YOU for all you do!
