Non-profit organization Cool Girls celebrated 200 girls for their hard work in school last year at a special event hosted by the St. Peter and St. Paul Episcopal Church in Marietta. For more than 25 years, the Episcopal church has supported the organization’s mission to instill confidence, self-respect, and leadership to hundreds of second through eighth-grade girls in nine metro Atlanta Title 1 elementary and middle schools.
The event included activities such as face painting, hip-hop dancing, Chick-fil-A lunch, and shopping in the church’s boutique. The girls received a new book bag full of school supplies, toiletries, a New Testament, and other provisions to give them a strong start for the new year. More than 100 volunteers from the church and surrounding community helped to make the event a fun way to honor what the girls have accomplished so far and to prepare them for a successful new school year.
