As opening day for the Braves at SunTrust Park approaches, our new MLB neighbors and Cobb County School District Partner in Education would like the Cobb County School District to help them celebrate this milestone. Our partnership with the Braves extends throughout our school district and includes everything from Teacher Impact Grants and STEM education to the upcoming Braves (High School) Student Leadership Initiative (similar to the Chick-fil-a Student Leadership Program) and literacy programs from K-8.
In support of our Braves and their opening season, Still has been given a few items from the Braves Team to share with our students! This week we will be drawing names on the morning announcements for Tomahawks, hats, bobble heads, and on Friday two lucky winners will receive Braves ticket vouchers!!
We are joining with the Braves to collect canned food items this week for MUST Ministries. Here is a list of specific needs from Must Ministries:
- Can Fruit (including individual servings)
- Can Meat chicken, tuna, Vienna sausages
- Breakfast items, smaller packages – oatmeal, grits
