A very worthy cause very near and dear to my heart is the Coweta FERST Foundation. Many of your children may have benefited from this foundation before they started school. The Coweta FERST Foundation is a non-profit public foundation whose mission is to “provide books for local communities to prepare all Georgia preschool children for reading and learning success.” The books are mailed each month to registered children in Coweta County from birth to age five. Money to pay for these books must be raised by the Coweta County Ferst Team who are all volunteers.
Ferst Foundation is involving Coweta County Schools in a coin drive to help raise money for these wonderful books. Some of the children may have younger brothers or sisters who are now receiving the books which are mailed at no cost to the preschooler.
Please consider sending any donation to help us with our coin drive. We only have until Wednesday, September 28th!
TUESDAY, September 27th we are having a Read-a-thon! If you bring $2.00 to donate to Ferst Foundation, you may bring a blanket to snuggle with during reading time! All of the money goes directly to Ferst Foundation for books for kids!
TEACHERS! You may purchase jean stickers for $5.00!
