A Letter from the Principal

NEW in SHS: Student Conductor Tardy system

Dear Parent/Guardian,

We want to inform you that Stockbridge High School has partnered with Student Conductor to bring a new and modern way to effectively process tardies, disciplines and fines that occur at our school. As a result, you will begin to receive instant notifications via email when your child incurs any tardies, disciplines or fines throughout the school year. This system enhances our communication and accountability and will greatly benefit the school, you the parent/guardian and your child. While the system is designed to communicate through email, if you would like to opt-in to text message notifications, that feature is also available. To opt-in to text notifications, please contact our office at 770-474-8747 and provide us with your cell phone number and the cell phone carrier you use. Up to two cell phone numbers can be added.

If you have any further questions, please contact the school office.

Eric Watson, Ed. S.

Personalized Learning in SHS

Life Lessons on Advisory this Semester

Stockbridge High continues its WE OWN IT advisory program this semester! Just to recap, we rolled out the beginning of advisory with a pre-advisory survey and we obtained topics that our Tigers WANT TO LEARN more about. We began with a Letter of Recommendation advisory on January 22, reminding students about the importance of having GREAT recommendation letters from individuals at school, work, or communities. We also had a self-reflection piece wherein the students think about the qualities that they would like for a reference to write about them and what actions they are taking/doing to fulfill this.

This semester, expect to have lessons like Financial Literacy (around tax day), Health and Relationships, ACT/SAT Information, and Life after High School! These lessons are REQUESTED and are created in-house! Get excited, SHS!

Assistant Principals' Corner

from the Office of Cassandra Jackson

Attached is an “Everyday Preventive Action” plan that can assist in fighting the spread of germs such as the FLU. As well as a “Too Sick for School” information sheet. Please take the time out to read the attached flyers especially since we are in "flu season". Also a reminder that no student should be wearing a mask unless they have provided documentation to the clinic and have received approval from an administrator. Please feel free to contact the clinic if you have any additional concerns or questions. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
