Amana PTO Fundraiser: Socks for Good

Want to look cute, feel cuter, and help a GREAT cause? Shop for some snazzy socks and support your favorite PTO at the same time. We want to raise funds to help with funding some of our continual programming needs and also build up our account so that next school year when we return to full F2F that we can have funding to do all the wonderful things that our Amana Community wants to do. BUT even more AWESOME, is that for every 2 pairs of socks purchased, we get 1 free pair to donate to a charity of our choosing.
Empowered Parents Invested in Change

Last year, GeorgiaCAN launched EPIC, Empowered Parents Invested in Change. The program trained over 50 parents across the state in advocacy, policy and organizing. The first cohort was such a success, we're launching our second cohort. The EPIC training aims to bring together like-minded individuals to be active in improving the quality of education in their community and the state. EPIC is a five-week parent empowerment program.
The spring program begins on April 29 and will be conducted virtually. You must apply and be accepted into this program. The last day to apply is April 23.
