Athens Academy is excited to participate in this year's Synovus "Spread the Love" Campaign benefiting Food to Kids and the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia. For the entire month of September, Athens Academy will be in a friendly competition with Prince Avenue Christian School to collect peanut butter (or PB alternatives) and jelly. The winning school will be awarded $2,500 while the second place school receives $500.
The next time you're grocery shopping, be sure to add some extra peanut butters (or PB alternatives) and jellies IN PLASTIC CONTAINERS. Students can start bringing in items this week. It's time for us to Spread the Love!
Congratulations to Athens Academy seniors Imana Adogu, Mae Kline, Ethan Markewitz, Davis McLanahan, and Inrgid Nilsson, each of whom was awarded a prestigious book award during last week’s Upper School Honors Day. The ceremony, which was held on Wednesday, September 1, 2021, recognized current sophomores, juniors, and seniors for their work through the end of the 2020-21 school year.
