Teachers, Principals Canvass Neighborhoods to Get Community Excited for Upcoming School Year

Forget sending a letter home--the teachers and principals from Clark Creek Elementary School STEM Academy in Acworth, Georgia are taking community engagement to a whole new level ahead of this upcoming school year.

According to the Woodstock-Towne Lake Patch, school officials from the elementary school took a bus tour of several neighborhoods to meet-and-greet with community members and encourage their participation in the school’s upcoming open house.

"Armed with bottled water and handheld fans to beat the heat, teachers delivered surprises, lollipops and hugs to students as they canvassed neighborhoods in the Clark Creek zone,” the article said.
