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 email@example.com.
