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.
This year K-5 schools are offering eLearning in place of an absence, if the situation aligns with the criteria below:
- The parent/guardian must request eLearning at least 10 calendar days prior to the 1st day of eLearning.
- The trip is of educational value, safety or security of a student when parents are traveling and the student cannot be left alone, non-school related athletic competitions for future opportunities, are some examples, but are not the only occasions that may be approved.
- Students cannot have any unexcused absences, for the entire school year, excessive absences (5 or more in a school year), or excessive tardiness (5 or more in a semester).
- Students may not take E-Learning days during the first day of the school year and during last 10 days of both semesters.
- Students cannot have any Class II or III write-ups during the semester the request is made.
These days will allow students to meet their class requirements through on-line engagement/ hard copy of class material and assignments (Teacher’s Discretion) while they are away from the building.
A Request for E-Learning can be found below.
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.
Simply sign up for a Publix.com account (if you don’t already have one), select Brookhill Elementary, then enter your phone number at checkout. Publix will donate a portion of each sale to FAME Academy.
Thanks to your participation from July to September, Publix donated back $295 back to FAME Academy!
