Great American Cleanup, Cobb Clean Sweep Coming in March

Great American Cleanup, Cobb Clean Sweep Coming in March

COBB COUNTY, GA -- Cobb County residents and students have a chance to be part of the biggest beautification and litter prevention effort ever.

The Great American Cleanup, which begins Tuesday, Mar. 1, is an annual nationwide community improvement campaign started in 1999 by Keep America Beautiful.

In 2009, Great American Cleanup volunteers donated more than 5.2 million hours of their time to clean, beautify and improve 32,000 communities in all 50 states and beyond.

Cobb County will kick off its leg of the Great American Cleanup with Clean Sweep Cobb, a series of service projects to be performed across the county on Saturday, Mar. 5.

Site Proposed for New Smyrna Elementary School

Site Proposed for New Smyrna Elementary School

SMYRNA, GA -- The Cobb County School District has announced a proposed site for a new Smyrna elementary school that would become a central piece of the redevelopment of the former Belmont Hills shopping center.

The property is located between Ward Street and Atlanta Road, immediately north and east of Campbell High School and less than one mile from Smyrna's Village Green.

The 18-acre site is a convenient location for the new school. It was approved by voters in 2008 as part of the school capital projects program funded by SPLOST.

If built, the new school will open in the fall of 2013.

"This is an excellent proposal that would seem to serve the entire community well," said Tim Stultz, who represents Smyrna on the Cobb County Board of Education. "I am looking forward to opening a new state-of-the-art school that will fit perfectly with the eventual redevelopment of the area.

Campbell High School Cares

SMYRNA, GA -- On Saturday, Oct. 30, Campbell High School will host a community-wide service event, Campbell Cares.

Students, parents, clubs, organizations and community volunteers will do a variety of service projects within the City of Smyrna, including painting, landscaping and renovation. Project sites include elementary schools, parks and retirement homes.

Campbell students who complete 20 or more hours of service will be honored at school award ceremonies and graduation, receiving the same recognition as participants in athletic and academic events.

Donations for the first Campbell Cares event are greatly appreciated. Donor recognition will be based on levels of contribution ($250, $500 and $1,000 increments).
