The supplies consisted of pencils, wide-ruled notebook paper, notebooks, crayons, colored pencils, and glue sticks.

“We want to thank Mr. Reddish, principal and Mrs. DeVane, assistant principal, for continuing to keep Schley County Elementary School the ‘number one elementary school in the state of Georgia,’” said John T.
