Patch and the Felix family handed over a $100,000 check to the Paulding School District on Friday, February 1. Last month, the Felix family's holiday house outshone the other entries in Patch's Deck the House Contest and the family took home the big win for Paulding.
Joe Felix, a celebrated social studies teacher, thanked the Paulding community for their continued support. The family finished second in last year's contest and credited this year's victory to votes garnered through social media. Students and faculty gathered with personalized posters to extend their gratitude to the family.
It was a positive experience from start to finish and video footage from the celebration will be posted later this month!
