- Take Out Tuesday at Zaxby’s
There’s really only one way to spend this Tuesday night: Chillin’ with friends and Zaxby’s chicken. Zaxby’s is one of Durham PTSA’s biggest supporters. The Stilesboro location donates 20% of their entire sales on Tuesday night to our kids. Let’s support this Durham business partner and pack the place! Bring your friends, bring your neighbors… or just pick up some “real chicken” and milkshakes at the drive-thru. It’s a real way to treat the fam and support our school, too!

- Opportunity School DistrictThis November, Georgia voters will be asked to decide on “Amendment #1” to the state constitution regarding an “Opportunity School District.” The measure would allow the state to temporarily take over leadership of chronically failing schools, up to 20 per year, and place them under a special superintendent, appointed by the governor, in hopes of improving performance.Georgia PTA is strongly opposed to the resolution, insisting the amendment infringes on local control of education and would strip funding. Please research this issue and know what your are voting on!
