First National School Bank
We are excited to be partnering with First National Bank of Athens as the first elementary school in Athens City with a school bank. Our students will be able to open a savings account through First National Bank and deposit money up to $100 on our banking days. Please check out the flyer below for a listing of our banking days for the 2019-2020 school year.
Please only send money with your students on the day of the banking days. Money sent ahead of time will be sent back with your student. Students opening an account will need to turn their forms in ahead of the banking date.

STANDARDS BASED ASSESSMENT & REPORTING FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS
It’s all about student understanding and mastering a learning goal - and less about grades. A standards-based report card lists the most important skills students should learn in each subject at a particular grade level. Instead of letter grades, students receive marks or a code that shows how well they have mastered the skills.
For more information please visit www.acs-k12.org/sbrc
A parent meeting will be on September 24th (incorrect date was given at Orientation). The meeting will be at 5:30 at the Athens City Schools Board of Education.
We are looking for volunteers to assist our teachers each week in our teacher workroom. If you would like to assist our teachers in making copies and other activities in your spare time, please sign up using the link below. We greatly appreciate your help and support of our students and teachers.
