Earlier this year, PCMS was nominated by a PCMS parent for a Power a Bright Future grant from the Clorox Company in hopes of securing up to $50,000 in funding for a new track. Coach Gartner and her staff and volunteers have been raising money through the CV Classic to raise money for a new track. We are proud to tell you there has been a little over $40,000 raised for the track through the 2 CV Classic events, a gift from the PTCC, and money from the PE Department. 

You can help PCMS receive a $50,000 grant simply by voting for the grant. After a competitive national nomination period, now it is time for our school community to show its support. Help PCMS win the grant by casting votes starting October 24 through December 9, 2011. Adults and students age 13 and up are eligible to vote online at for the Peachtree Charter Middle School Track! You can search by the name of the school or search by city and state Atlanta, GA. The competition is going to allow text voting so if you would like to vote that way, text clorox8514 to 44144. It is the first year they have allowed text voting. The program that receives the MOST VOTES in the entire country will win the $50,000 grant. The next top vote getters will receive a $25,000 grant in the areas of play, explore, and art. THE PCMS TRACK IS IN THE "PLAY" category. PCMS has also been selected as one of Clorox's Judge Picks. Clorox judges selected some schools in which they feel best fits what they want the grant to accomplish. PCMS has been selected for that as well. The judges will take into account how the community gets behind the VOTE.

We need you to VOTE as often as you can. The voting begins October 24 and you are allowed to vote one time a day. When the text voting is available we will get you that information. Please get your friends and family to vote- every vote counts.
