Rachel's Challenge Presentation Tonight at Griffin
Argyle Elementary is 50 years old this year and will be hosting a celebration in March.
Three local schools recently partnered with Sip Wine Riverside to sponsor an “adult night” out for school parents and staff members.
Proceeds from the fun and relaxing child-free event were divided between Griffin Middle, King Springs Elementary, and Nickajack Elementary schools in order to support Rachel’s Challenge and other PTA projects. Rachel Scott was the first person killed in the 1999 Columbine High School tragedy in Colorado.
SIP General Manager Cliff Sinon was instrumental in the success of the event, which featured a wine tasting and delicious tapas buffet.
Tonight, Nickajack and Griffin have joined forces to bring a Rachel's Challenge presentation event set to begin at 7 p.m. the Griffin Auditorium.
This is a life-changing program, designed for those 13 and older, that focuses on kindness and compassion toward others. In November, the Celebration of Kindness event was staged at the Georgia Dome and many area schools, including Griffin and Nickajack, participated. See more about that event here.
Recently, Teasley's Robot Warriors and Campbell Middle School's Robo Spartans Jr. each excelled at the FIRST Lego League (FLL) Super-Regionals competition.

The Spartans Jr. were selected from the field of 40 participating teams to be among those advancing to the FLL State tournament.
The state finals will be held at Georgia Tech on Saturday, where teams will compete for the chance to represent Georgia at the World Festival later this spring. For additional information on FIRST, please see here.
