Boot camp, rally to ready parents

8/1/2014, 6 a.m.

Parents who attend the Aug. 9 Back-to-School Boot Camp and Parent Rally at Georgia Piedmont Technical College may be eligible for free school supplies.

The event, which takes place from 9:45 a.m. to 2 p.m., is presented by the DeKalb NAACP, the DeKalb Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc., and the college.

Parents who register and attend workshops are eligible for free school supplies while supplies last. Advance registration is available at www.DeKalbAlphas.org/bootcamp.

Organizers say the boot camp and rally will help empower parents to take control of their children’s education and give students information that will help them have a successful school year.

Georgia Piedmont Technical College is at 495 N. Indian Creek Drive in Clarkston. For more information, contact Lance Hammonds at lance.hammonds@att.net or 404-241-8006.
