Hat Day

Hat Day By: Etta Heller, Jessica Brown, and Megan Grissom


Hat day is coming up on September 8. You can bring in a hat to help support publications. The money we raise will be going towards buying the SGMS faculty years books. If there is money left over yearbooks might be donated to others. The money that we raise will also be put toward making the yearbook.


If you chose to wear a hat, then you’ll have to donate a dollar.  Give it to Mrs.Womack when you get in the school in the morning. .  When she collects the money she will give you a sticker to put on your hat.  Make sure that it is in a spot where it won’t fall off.  This is a very important day so we can raise money for the year books that we can donate to the staff.


        The Hat Day is a special day because were are not allowed to wear hats at school. This day allows us to wear an appropriate hat at school by only a cost of a dollar. . For an example your favorite sports team hat or a hat from vacation.
