Let The Times tag along as your kid goes to school
Placeholder Image
Is your son or daughter getting ready to start school for the first time? The Times would like to tag along for the day.

The Times is looking for a family to feature on this momentous occasion in a child’s life as the first-time student gets ready, experiences the first day of school and then returns home to relate the day’s events. The Times plans to shoot both photographs and video as part of this feature.

If you would like to be considered, please contact Ashley Fielding at 770-718-3411 or via e-mail at

Preference will be given to students living in Gainesville or Hall County due to logistics, but others will be considered.
