Donelson School News – August 2019
Every First Day and Last Day of school at McGavock High School, the McGavock Coalition puts together community leaders to greet students and wish them well and also hands out raffle tickets for prizes given out during the day. It’s a great way for the community to support McGavock. I was glad to join community leaders and the Donelson-Hermitage Chamber of Commerce on August 5th.
I was also honored to support our teachers and the McGavock High School PTO by contributing to a Back to School Teacher Appreciation Breakfast.
The Donelson Gateway Project is launching a fundraising campaign to help fund a roughly $1,700 beautification project at the front of the school. Thanks to JVI Secret Gardens for creating the plan. Check out this great promo video posted on DGP’s Facebook page where you can donate towards this.
Here’s a great opportunity to volunteer and help a student with improving their literacy skills thanks to the Donelson-Hermitage YMCA. See flyer below for details to contact them if you’re interested.
Thank you to Metro Public Schools for adding six extra parking spots in the back lot of McGavock Elementary School. This will help facilitate better traffic flow and parents parking and walking their young children into school in the morning.
