Right now you may be wondering: what’s with the fireball? Please allow us to explain.
On February 8th, 2003, shortly after the Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School opened its doors, the building was destroyed by fire. We watched years of hard work go up in smoke, literally. However, as painful as that was, it didn’t stop us. In fact, not a single day of school was missed. How did we manage that? Community support—from people willing to offer time, skills, and resources.
In fact, not only did our school continue, it expanded! What started as a small elementary school now serves grades K-8 and operates two bustling campuses. Each year, ANCS gets better, despite the challenges, because of the strength of our community.
Today we face another great challenge – recent budget cuts. Of course, we intend to overcome this newest obstacle, but we absolutely can’t do it without broad community support.
Participants in our 10th annual auction making a donation of merchandise, services or gift certificates will be featured in the online and print programs as well as the school’s website— providing broad exposure to a grateful community.
