Togetherness Project Links Cobb County Schools, Tom Mathis PTA Council & YMCA

Hey Students! Do you have an idea for a community volunteer project that could benefit Kennesaw Mountain High School such as flower beds around campus, an outdoor clean-up initiative, or an indoor art project? Come up with ONE project, why it’s important, and how it will benefit KMHS! The YMCA and Tom Mathis Sr. Council will choose one PHENOMENAL idea, and you, your school, and the YMCA will gather together this spring to make your project happen! Submission forms are available HERE. Once you have completed the submission form, place it in the gray PTSA box near the attendance office.  The deadline to enter is February 28th.
