The Newton County Schools Back To School event with NCSS Special Education Department was a huge success!!! There were tons of booths for special needs families to visit, Kona ice, a petting zoo and bouncy castles! It was a circus theme so all vendors had a game at their station. How fun! We gave away adaptive Target brand jeans, masks, Toms shoes, and thanks to an amazing anonymous donor, every child got zipper pouches that both parents and children could use! THANK YOU!!!🥰

The temporary shelter, located at 8134 Geiger Street Covington, Ga, will be open from 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. as cold temperatures persist. The Rainbow Center/Garden of Gethsemane, the host agency for the shelter, is providing transportation from the warming shelter to the Rainbow Shelter from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Newton County Board of Commissioners and the City of Covington are partnering to open the Cousins School Warming Shelter as temperatures are expected to be 20-35 degrees below normal by Friday, Dec. 23, with wind chill values as low as 4 degrees Thursday evening/Friday morning, according to the National Weather Service.
Even though Christmas is less than a week away, Santa and his reindeer are making one more stop in Covington this Thursday, December 22, 2022 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Bring your camera or phone to take pictures with Santa or the reindeer or both! Since the reindeer have a big job to do this weekend, you may not pet or feed them, but they are still a treat to behold. And Santa is always a joy to be around! Also, stores will be open later than normal on Thursday so you can grab some last minute gifts! ❤💚🎅💚❤
