Talladega City Schools Benefit from Volunteers
Volunteers make the world a nicer place and Ellis Junior High is blessed with one of many talents. Andrea Montgomery, a parent of two Ellis students and two THS graduates, was caught weeding the recent landscaping project in front of the school this week. This volunteer is not afraid of a little hard work. She and her husband George were instrumental in giving the outside of Ellis a facelift before students returned in the fall.

Although her children are no longer students at Graham Elementary School, she continues to share her talents. Just recently she helped students celebrate Dr. Suess' birthday by doing sign language for one of the Suess books.

Mrs. Montgomery, like many other parents in Talladega, is interested in all of the city system's schools. She has graciously served on the School Improvement Roundtable Advisory Board since April of 2006. The input of parents, along with teachers, administrators and Central Office staff who serve on this committee is valued and is helping to improve our schools. When folks have a common goal there is no stopping the progress!
Thanks to all who give of their time and talents to schools.
