Businesses and organizations are invited to learn more about partnering with CCSD schools by dropping in at the free event anytime between 4 and 6 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 13, at the Dr. Frank R. Petruzielo Educational Services Facility School Board Auditorium (1205 Bluffs Parkway, Canton, 30114). Participants can visit tables of school leaders, who will be grouped by geographic area, to share coffee and conversation with them about partnership opportunities, including how schools and CCSD can promote and recognize partners. We highly recommend that you visit our school level partnership page on the district’s website at: https://www.cherokeek12.net/content/ccsd-school-partnerships prior to the event. There, you will find valuable information about partnerships, including a link to each school’s “wish list,” which shares how partners can support them through donating time, services and sponsorships for their specific school needs. Find the best matches for your business or organization, and make it a point to meet with those schools to discuss opportunities to form meaningful and mutually beneficial partnerships. Potential partners will also have the opportunity to pick up “wish lists” at the event.
“Our schools become more successful with the positive involvement of the entire community, and that community includes the many local businesses and organizations that make our county great,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said. “This event will showcase the many different and easy ways partners can support our schools.”
Thanks to the evening’s sponsor, The Cherokee County Educational Foundation, there will be coffee and dessert for you to enjoy as you meet with future school partners.
