Hollydale Elementary School increased milk sales during the recent “Rise Up, Fuel Up” Milk Competition.  Hollydale’s efforts to increase milk consumption crushed the state competition.  As a reward, students will enjoy a Falcons pep rally complete with a Falcons’ player, Harry Douglas.  Look for more information on the event coming in March.

Cobb schools took four of the top six spots from the state competition.  These schools included: Hollydale Elementary School, Pebblebrook High School, South Cobb High School and Simpson Middle School.  They each received $1,000 to support nutrition education efforts.
