Welcome Ms. Hogue

Ms. Andrea Hogue will be serving as Druid Hills' Check and Connect Specialist, a DCSD program where mentors provide personalized, timely interventions to help targeted 9th grade students solve problems, build skills, and enhance competence. She'll be on campus Mondays, Wednesdays, and most Fridays and will be housed in the office previously used by Coach Granger.

Transferring SLO Pre-Assessment Data into Infinite Campus - REQUIRED ACTION

By now, SLO pre-assessments should now be complete for all current students. Teachers are required to input the pre-assessment data into Infinite Campus by October 9.

1) An item analysis for all SLO pre-assessments should be saved as a .pdf. The .pdf needs to be uploaded in the SLO Assessment folder in the Data Room.

2) The pre-assessment score should be entered into IC using the SY15-16 Teacher Directions.

3) SLO post-assessments, given in December, will be administered through IDMS. After administration, teachers will, again, save the item analysis and enter the SLO score into IC.

raise.me - Introducing Micro-Scholarships

raise.me is free for educators students and enables students to earn scholarships for their achievements in class, attendance, participation, or leadership roles in sports and clubs, community service, test scores.

Please consider creating an account and encouraging our students to use raise.me. Many of us have been seeking new approaches to motivating students to maximize their time in high school - this will be an effective means of supporting our students as the plan for life after Druid Hills.

Professional Learning

Many of you are beginning to ask questions regarding how to request for Conferences or Professional Development opportunities outside of DCSD.

Two important things to note: time and documentation. Requests should be submitted six weeks prior to the event.

Please see the guide to requesting PD-related support. Documents are also located in the Little Red Schoolhouse.

Governor's Honors Program

Thank you to Ms. Brown, Mr. Brown, Ms. Chatard, Ms. Duncanson, Mr. McConnell, and Mr. Patel for submitting Governor's Honor Program recommendations. We currently have 31 students being recommended - I know there are far more worthy students. Please submit recommendations by Tuesday.

Save the Date - DHAA's Blue Jeans & BBQ - October 17

Please make plans to attend the Druid Hills Athletic Association's 9th Annual Fall Fundraiser. For the first time: ALL DHHS Faculty (and a guest) can attend for FREE! Good food, good times, and for a good cause!

In the News ... Ms. Moore

Please read the article on Ms. Moore, whose inspiring efforts in genealogy have resulted in the unveiling of Edgerly Cemetery.

PTSA Fall Grants (Repost)

Please view the link for the PTSA Fall Grant Application. Deadline to submit proposals is October 14.

Information is also located in the Little Red Schoolhouse.

Coming Soon...Get Caught Reading! Initiative
