Cub Scouts Camp out, Kingsley Elementary Honored, City Council Agenda

Cub Scout Pack 434, which includes Springfield scouts Durham Wysocki, Victor Chiles, Andrew Mills and Jack Fiscella, spent the weekend at Providence Canyon State Park, a three-hour drive south off Dunwoody. The Cub Scouts had, arguably, their best camp out ever as close to 100 family members took part. Please contact Steve Wysocki (404.392.6110) for more information on how to become a scout.
(Atlanta Journal-Constitution) The school council at Dunwoody's Kingsley Charter Elementary School has been named by the education publication PTO Today as its national parent group of the year. Parents last school year put in 8,002 volunteer hours - a 333 percent increase over the year before.
Kingsley council members are the first group from Georgia awarded the publication's national honor. If the school's name doesn't ring a bell, consider this: It is also the place where Sally Foster - yes, there really is one - started a school fund-raising effort that grew into the empire we know today.
The Dunwoody City Council holds a work session at 7 p.m. Monday night at Peachtree Middle School. Among the items on the agenda: staff discussion (perhaps the all-important position of city manager) and city implementation. All work sessions and council meetings are open to the public.
