International Women's Day - March 8th

March 8th, is a special day throughout the world. It is called International Women's Day, and it is celebrated in many countries throughout the world.


The pictures below are various cards given in Russia to ladies on March 8th in the late 1970 and early 1980s celebrating International Women's Day. Here is a link to some information and history of International Women's Day in Russia.


International Women's Day (Click here).


My wife was born and lived in central Russia until she was 25. In June 2000, we married, and we moved here to the Atlanta area. We have been married almost 15 years, and we have three boys. Where she grew up, they did not celebrate Valentine's Day. They celebrated (and still do celebrate) International Women's Day. A great many countries outside of the United States also do not celebrate Valentine's Day. A great many countries do celebrate International Women's Day. I celebrate this tradition with her, even though we have lived here for many years now.


I encourage all of you to give honor and encouragement to the ladies in your lives. It could be your moms, sisters, grandmothers, female teachers, and others. Let them know how important they are to you, and let them know how grateful you are for all that they do to encourage and support you.

12 Weeks - Welcome Letter - 12 February 2016

Students and Parents,


Welcome to Georgia Virtual School. I will be your student's teacher. The student’s first task is to complete the Student Orientation Course. It is important to complete topics in order and complete all items on the checklist.


The following items are required for the completion of the Student Orientation Course (SOC):

  • students complete all sign off

  • students complete all agreement quizzes

  • students make a 100% on the final Student Orientation Quiz.

OR

  • Students may choose to opt out of the Student Orientation Course; however, students who elect to opt out of the Student Orientation Course are still responsible for all content presented in the course.


Students must finish or opt out of the SOC before gaining access to the course. Following successful completion of the SOC, the date on which students will gain access to the course is dependent upon which schedule was selected at the time of registration.

Regardless of the start date, the course ends May 6, 2016. Student work is due bi-weekly on Thursdays at midnight. Check course schedules for specific due dates. Work turned in after the deadline on the course schedule will be accepted within 3 school days with a late penalty assessed. Late penalty begins on Friday and is deducted at a rate of 10% of the assignment value per school day. Work submitted on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday is considered 1 day late.


Important Parent Information

The Parent Account gives you information about your child’s grades and progress in their course. If your child’s grade drops below a 75, you will receive an automated phone call. If your child’s grade drops below a 70, you will receive a phone call from me.


In order to view your child’s progress, you will need to have a parent account within our Student Information System and your account must be linked to your child’s GAVS account. If you already have a parent account please do NOT create a new one. If you have never created a parent account or you have not linked to your student’s account, follow the steps listed below.

Parent helpdesk articles


Parents should read the knowledgebase articles in the order listed below. The steps must be completed in this order.
