In Newton County, Newton County Elementary School is holding a uniform swap, allowing families to get free uniforms for their children.
Throughout the school year, parents donate gently used uniforms their children have outgrown, saving other families money, by not having to buy new ones.
The uniform swap will take place in the school’s cafeteria tomorrow, March 3rd from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm.
Newton County Elementary School has held the uniform swap for ten years and the event occurs twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall.
“They’re encouraged to bring something to the swap, but that is not something they have to do. They’re more than welcome to, if they’ve already brought clothes or even if they haven’t yet--then they’re welcome to still come and choose some items at the swap, but we also want to encourage our upcoming kindergarteners-- their families, to be thinking about this. This is a good way to get started on their wardrobe for when they start school”, said Natalie May, team leader of the spring uniform swap.
After the uniform swap, that evening, Newton County Elementary School is holding a 4th grade history wax museum in the gymnasium at 6pm.
