Sono­rav­ille High School’s FCCLA is hold­ing a com­mu­nity book drive dur­ing the month of Fe­bru­ary. FCCLS is gladly ac­cept­ing new or gen­tlyused chil­dren’s books (ages birth - 5). Col­lec­tion bas­kets are lo­cated in the li­braries at SHS and Sono­rav­ille El­e­men­tary School. On Fri­day, March 2, which is Dr. Seuss Day, FCCLA will host a “book sign­ing” at Sono­rav­ille El­e­men­tary School and Head Start to present each Pre-K stu­dent (ages 3 - 5 years old) with a book. The goal for the book drive is 200 books. When this goal is ex­ceeded, other Pre-K stu­dents within Gor­don County Schools will also re­ceive books. Any­one who would like more in­for­ma­tion, please con­tact Lori Key at lkey@gcbe.org.
