Message from the Principal

Greetings Titans!


On Wednesday, August 28th, I would like to extend an invitation to all parents to join us at Curriculum Night at 6:00 p.m. We will begin the evening in the gym with a welcome address, our Annual Title I Parent Meeting, and PTSA General Meeting. Please take a moment to register for Infinite Campus. Printing your child's schedule in advance will facilitate meeting your child's teachers.


August 30th is an RFF Day at Elkins Pointe. There is no school for students. The day has been set aside by the Elkins Pointe School Governance Council. Teachers and staff will use the day as a professional development day to better ensure high levels of learning for every student.


The 8th grade Social Studies Georgia trip is coming up in October, and the final payment is due September 2nd. Every year Elkins Pointe offers scholarships to students in need. To do this, we count on the generosity of our parents, PTSA, community, business, and faith partners. If you would like to donate to help fund a student who otherwise cannot go on the trip, please send a check or cash to the front office, marked "Georgia Trip Donation." The amount needed to support a scholarship student is $150. However, any amount your family or business donates will be appreciated.


I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, and I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday!

CURRICULUM NIGHT FAQ:

QUESTION: Are children (students/siblings) supposed to attend Curriculum Night?

ANSWER: Curriculum Night is for Parents, Grandparents, and Legal Guardians. The general meeting is open to all families, but the classroom visits are intended for adults only. No students in classroom visits.


QUESTION: Should students attend Curriculum Night?

ANSWER: Walking the class schedule is NOT intended for middle school students. Parents should arrange childcare and plans for their students to be at home. This evening is for teachers to be able to talk to parents on an adult level. No students in classroom visits.


QUESTION: Will there be some children at Curriculum Night?

ANSWER: Elkins Pointe is a family-friendly school. We understand that childcare can be an issue for some families. We do not wish for childcare to be the issue that prevents parents from attending an important event like Curriculum Night. Please see the tips below regarding childcare.

TIPS FOR CURRICULUM NIGHT

PLEASE ARRANGE CHILDCARE FOR SIBLINGS:

If you need to bring a child because you do not have childcare, you may bring them. The school is aware that life sometimes means parents are unable to line up childcare. If you bring your child(ren), please ensure they are not disruptive during classroom visits. As a courtesy, we ask if they do become loud or fussy, the parent steps outside into the hallway with the child. Seating will be tight, and we ask that minor children stay close to their parent by sitting on their lap or next to mom and dad on the floor (only if necessary).


STUDENTS SHOULD ENJOY THE EVENING AT HOME:

Middle School-aged children are asked to stay home, and if you must bring them because of a scheduling conflict, they should not enter the classrooms. If they must come to the school, please ask your middle school student to be seated on one of the benches or booths while you are in the classroom. We will not have the staff to monitor children in the hallway. It is essential Elkins Pointe middle school children know they are required to behave in a responsible, safe, and respectful manner befitting to our students. For safety reasons, parents should not leave babies, toddlers, and elementary school children in the hallway unmonitored.

Be Prepared for Curriculum Night - Get Your Child Schedule In Advance!

If you would like to prepare in advance for Curriculum Night the BEST thing you can do is to register for Infinite Campus. Infinite Campus will allow you to access your child's Elkins Pointe Schedule. Take a picture on your phone or print out the schedule and YOU are all set to walk your child's schedule and meet the teachers:


Here is the order you will walk your child's schedule on 8/28:


  • Start in WINN Class - Period 6 (Everyone Starts with WINN Class. This period will only occur once. Parents will go from 5th to 7th period).

EVERYDAY...TITAN PROUD!

Just the FACS - Week One and Two!

The Family and Consumer Science Connections class is back and Elkins Pointe. Mrs. Chelsea Pierce is engaging her classes interesting and relevant hands-on lessons.


On week one, students made PlayDoh “sculptures” of kitchen items to get to know some items they will be using in their kitchens. It was such a fun activity and they said they loved the nice switch up from the usual ice breaker activities on the first week of school.


On week two, the FACS class had a fun activity 6th grade this week. 6th grade learned how to budget with M&M’s. They had to make choices on what they would buy with their limited funds. Then Mrs. Pierce threw some “curve balls” at the students, i.e. like “breaking their leg” to see if they budgeted well enough to save for a "rainy day!"

Celebrity Titan!

Kudos to this former Titan, Andreona Keys, who came in to say hello to her middle school teachers, Johnson Sensei, and Mr. Seth Gamba. She graduated from Roswell High School and then Purdue University. Now she is a now a pro basketball player in Slovenia!

Faces of the Big Ten: Andreona Keys

Mr. Bounds Makes the Rounds!

Principal Bounds has been in and out of the classrooms visiting teachers and students to see all the great learning in the building. Mr. Bounds believes that you have to love students to teach them. Thank you, Principal Bounds, for spreading the love of learning throughout the building!

Instructions to Pay Online for the Georgia Trip

8th Grade Georgia Trip Online Registration Instructions for A Plus Tours. All Payments are due by September 2nd - No exceptions.


Step 1: Go to www.aplus-tours.com Once you are on www.aplus-tours.com, you will click on “REGISTER HERE” at the top toolbar


Step 2: Create a parent/guardian account To register your student, you must first create an account for yourself as the student’s guardian. The profile you will create will allow you to add multiple students (if you have multiple children attending) and will allow you to later add yourself as a participant (if you will be attending as a chaperone). There is no need to add a profile picture, though you are welcome. Please fill out the corresponding information to create an account for yourself.


Step 3: Add Participant Profiles This section is where you will enter information about your student. NOTE: There is NO need to click on the box which states “Enable separate login for profile.” If you are ONLY planning to register one person (student) for a field trip, you will then click “continue.” If you are registering multiple participants (in cases where you may have multiple children or are registering both a child and a spouse/adult as a chaperone), you will add the first participant, and instead of clicking “Continue,” you will add additional profiles through the same steps. Once all participants are registered, you will click “continue.”


Step 4: Find Your Event Click on “Browse Events” (towards the top left of the page), and you will see a list of available events to select. Click on the event for which you wish to register your student.


Step 5: Select Blue “Purchase” Button


Step 6: Select Payment Preference and Attendee Payment Schedule: Most trips have multiple payment options, including payment plans and pay in full. If you have a food allergy, here is where you will select the payment option with a food allergy preference. Note: If you do NOT choose food allergy payment here, we cannot guarantee your child will be provided with alternative dining options. If you select a payment plan, our system automatically charges your card on the predetermined dates listed on the trip payment schedule. We encourage you to note those dates, as your card will automatically be charged, and your bank may charge you an overdraft fee. Choose Attendee: This is where you will select the people going on the trip. If your child is the only person going, please ONLY select your child’s profile and click on the blue “continue to payment button.” If you plan to have additional people attend the trip: You must have already created their profile, you will click “+ Add Event” next to the registration on the left side of the screen. You will then go back in and repeat steps 4 and 5 for that person. Once you have everyone added (your cart will show the total number of people added to the cart), you will click “continue to payment.”


Step 7: Confirmation Once you click confirm, you will receive an email confirming your order. For questions or assistance with your registration, please email us at contact@aplus-tours.com
