This Friday…

Dear Parents,

What a great time to be in Atlanta this weekend! Our very own professional soccer team, Atlanta United, has qualified for the Major League Soccer (MLS) Cup!  What is the MLS cup?  This is the equivalent of the Super Bowl for soccer, and the first time Atlanta United has qualified, which is impressive for a two year old team.

Friday (12/7) is our Atlanta United Spirit Day!   Please have your child wear their Atlanta United gear, red shirt, gold shirt, or black shirt. Students still need to wear their standard attire bottoms. We want to rep our hometown team!

United & Conquer!
