Families can visit Helping Hands Food Pantry once a week Monday, Wednesday & Friday 9:30am-2pm and the family must be a resident of Paulding County.
The family must show a driver's license/ID or a lease agreement (if no ID/license). Helping Hands is located in downtown Dallas near the old court house. Unfortunately, if a family has two families (double) within one home, the pantry can only serve one family per week. Please share with our homeless student population also. Thanks and let me know if you have any questions.

Beginning in the month of October, our students will be participating in the Georgia Student Health Survey, issued by the Georgia Department of Education. Please read below for more information:
A growing body of research indicates that schools with positive school climate ratings have better test scores and higher graduation rates. School climate refers to the quality and character of school life. The first step to improving school climate is to measure and analyze it with a school climate survey instrument. The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) is a national leader in the collection and analysis of school climate data through the implementation of its annual Georgia Student Health Survey 2.0 (GSHS 2.0). The GSHS 2.0 is an anonymous, statewide survey instrument developed by many divisions within the GaDOE including the Assessment and Accountability Division and in collaboration with the Georgia Department of Public Health and Georgia State University. The GSHS 2.0 identifies safety and health issues that have a negative impact on student achievement and school climate
If you would like to review a copy of the health survey that your students will complete, please follow the link below:
