TA truly is a special place to be.
Congratulations to Ms. Dulaney's 7th period class for winning the Soles for Souls in the Valley shoe drive! It was an incredibly close race and I cannot thank the TA faculty enough for the support you've shown for this project (and for the Angel Tree Project). As of now we have almost 800 pairs of shoes!

Donations can be brought to Mr. Atwood’s class any time before or after school from now until December 20th.
