New Hope Middle School officially opened its new Kodiak Calming Cove, a sensory room for children with special needs, recently, and "it'll make a big difference for students to have a safe space they can go into," said Belinda Sloan, the school's principal.
With the new school year well underway, several Georgia-based schools have now had the chance to utilize their newly designed classrooms courtesy of a state-wide School Crashers program.
Hosted by Georgia United Credit Union Foundation with donor partners like Mohawk Group, the annual program awards one deserving school a makeover grant funded by the foundation and runners-up with grants for specific projects.
