Water Donations Needed for Special Education Dance

It’s almost time for the 17th Annual Special Education Dance hosted by students at Kennesaw Mountain High School.  Each year, students from around the county gather at KMHS to cut the rug, eat cookies, drink water and enjoy each other’s company. This year the dance is scheduled for the morning of Monday, February 12th, 2018.

The PTSA  has been asked to collect cases of 8 ounce water bottles to help in the effort.  If you can supply a case or two of water, please click on the link below.

Waters can be turned in to the front office anytime between now and Monday morning, February 12th.  Any water dropped off on Monday must be in by 8am.
