Relay for Life Ribbon Decoration
In order to communicate the significance of Relay for Life and the effects cancer has on everyone, we would like to offer students the opportunity to decorate a ribbon in memory/honor of a loved one who battled/is battling cancer. If your child would like to continue to support cancer research, they may decorate the paper ribbon sent home in daily folders and return it to school along with a $1.00 donation to support our school-wide efforts to help find a cure. The deadline for this is Friday, April 20th.

Relay for Life
Oconee County Relay for Life will be held from 6:00PM-12:00AM on Friday, April 20th at Oconee County High School. Please consider coming out to support this worthy cause! There will be booths with games, food, and more. First Grade teachers will walk the track from 7:00-7:45. If your children are there, they may join us. Thank you for helping support finding a cure for cancer!
