PARENT MID-YEAR DATA TALK BY PRINCIPAL SMITH

Feb. 6th @ 6:00 PM in the Media Center

ALL PARENTS INVITED TO THIS IMPORTANT MEETING


SCHOOL DAYS REINSTATED

* ALL STUDENTS & TEACHERS REPORT TO SCHOOL *

Feb. 9, 2018

Feb. 16, 2018

Mar. 9 - Digital Learning Day (Students Work @ Home/Teacher @ School)

Mar. 12, 2018

Note: ALL Elkins Pointe students will now have school

on the days above to make up for school closings

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Dear Parents,


I have three important announcements. My first message is that February 9th will be a school day for students. Secondly, I would like to let parents know the invitations for the Breakfasts of Excellence were issued to students today. The third piece of news is about Ms. Margaret White's promotion within Fulton County Schools. The common theme is our clear goal to strive for academic success for our students.


Friday, February 9th has been approved to be reinstated as a school day for all Elkins Pointe students. Originally, this day was earmarked by our School Governance Council (SGC) as a Professional Development Day for teachers, and students were to be given the day off. Because of the snow days, it is necessary and critical for us to support students academically by having them in school and in their classrooms! In a joint decision, our administration and teachers made the call that we just could not lose one more day of instruction. The Elkins Pointe SGC and the FCS District granted permission to reinstate February 9th as a school day for students. Parents, I realize as you read this, you may have commitments for the 9th of February. If you have purchased plane tickets or it would be an extreme hardship for you to reschedule/cancel your plans, I will work with your family to excuse the absence. Should your family wish to request an excused absence for February 9th, please email me directly. Once excused, you will need to contact your child's teachers to ask for all missing assignments. To see the Fulton County Schools Make Up Days, click here.


Promptly at 7:30 AM, the cafeteria doors will open for the Breakfasts of Excellence on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. We ask that parents and students arrive as early as possible, between 7:15 AM - 7:30 AM. Breakfast will be served up until the ceremony begins at 7:45 AM. Service will then be paused and will resume only once every student has been recognized. Because we have expanded the scope of recognizing excellence to include attendance with academic achievement, we are expecting an even bigger crowd than previous years. Our excellent students will be treated to chicken biscuits thanks to the generosity of the Roswell Town Center Chick-fil-A. Our PTSA will provide hot coffee, juice, and mini-pastries to our parents and students.

Please join me in congratulating Mrs. Margaret L. White on being promoted to

Associate Superintendent of Professional Learning and Leadership Development. We have been fortunate to have Mrs. White serve our school as the Northwest Area Superintendent. Mr. Clifford Jones, currently the Northeast Area Superintendent will be acting as the Area Superintendent for both the Northwest and Northeast. We wish Mrs. White all the very best in her promoted position!


Have an excellent weekend Titans, and "Good Luck" to our Robotics Team, and Titan Tech Team in their competitions this Saturday!


Sincerely,


Kindra L. Smith, Ed.S

Principal
Elkins Pointe Middle School

Home of the Titans!

FULTON COUNTY SCHOOLS MAKE UP DAYS

Plan for making up lost instructional time

Fulton County Schools announces that students will make up three of the eight school days that were lost this year due to inclement weather. The three days are February 16, March 9 and March 12.


February 16 was announced earlier this year as a make-up day due to Hurricane Irma school closures, but the district has determined that March 12 will be a second make-up day for the recent snow/ice closures. A third make-up day – March 9 – will be a piloted Digital Learning Day, where students will work independently from home on schoolwork and projects using district-issued mobile devices or home technology. The district will communicate the specifics of the March 9 Digital Learning Day to individual schools and teachers.

SMART, HAPPY & CONNECTED!!!

MLK Jr. "I Have A Dream" Contest

The Atlanta Dream will host its annual “I Have a Dream” essay contest to recognize the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Atlanta-area students are asked to submit 300-500 word essays expressing their dream job or dream college.


The contest, which will run until Monday, January 29th, will be judged by a panel including Atlanta Dream president, Theresa Wenzel, to choose contest winners in three categories – Elementary, Middle School, and High School. Each winner will receive tickets to the first 2018 Dream game, be recognized in a game and will receive a school visit from the franchise. The High School winner, one boy, and one girl will also be eligible to receive a $250 scholarship from the Atlanta Dream Youth Foundation.

Entering its historic 11th season, the Atlanta Dream has been connected to Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech from the very beginning. The original Circle of Friends, a group that led to the founding of the organization, took the speech into consideration when naming the franchise.


Essay Contest Details:

  • Every essay should start with “I have a dream….” From that point, it is up to the student to express his or her dream in 300-500 words. In one paragraph, the student should describe if money wasn’t an issue what your dream job or dream college would be.
  • The essay submission should be submitted as an attachment and sent to JrDream@atlantadream.net no later than January 29, 2018. All documents should include the student’s first and last name, school, grade, teacher and guardian contact info.
  • A panel of judges including the president of the Atlanta Dream, Theresa Wenzel, will review the essays and select the winners. Winners will be notified in February.
  • All participants receive a buy one get one free ticket voucher in the Jr. Dream section to the 2018 Home opener and enrolled as a Jr. Dream member.
  • Two winners (one girl and one boy) will be selected from elementary, middle, and high school equaling (6) total winners. The (6) winners will be recognized by the court during the home opener. We will share more details when we solidify the game logistics. We will also draw names from all finalists and award them with tickets and prizes.
  • Winners will receive the following:
    • Elementary school: A visit from the Atlanta Dream and tickets to the 2018 Home opener.
    • Middle school: A visit from the Atlanta Dream and tickets to the 2018 Home opener.
    • High school: A $250 scholarship from the Atlanta Dream Youth Foundation and tickets to the 2018 Home opener.

ASIA-PACIFIC CHILDREN'S CONVENTION - FOR ELEMENTARY STUDENTS

As Georgia’s liaison office for the 30th Annual Asian-Pacific Children’s Convention (APCC), The Japan-America Society of Georgia (JASG) is again able to share a once in a lifetime opportunity with 4 ten/eleven-year-old students (two boys and two girls) and 1 chaperone from the state of Georgia through this fully funded exchange program to Fukuoka, Japan (Atlanta’s Sister City).


Students must have birthdate between Sept. 1, 2006, and Aug. 31, 2007


This year’s APCC program will be held from July 12-24, 2018. The JASG will again act as the official liaison office between the APCC, the City of Fukuoka, and Atlanta's APCC delegation, and will manage all participant selections and pre-departure preparations for this cultural exchange program. Please follow the links below to apply and to find more information about the 2018 APCC.




How can students participate as a Junior Ambassador?

The JASG requests that any student who meets the participation criteria and eligibility requirements submit an essay, no more than two pages (either handwritten or typed), on why they would make a good Junior Ambassador and representative of Georgia. The student should also submit a single drawing on an 8 ½” x 11” piece of white paper that represents the theme of the convention. In addition, the student should provide a CONFIDENTIAL letter of recommendation (meaning that the letter was written and placed in a sealed envelope before being given to the student for submission) from the student’s teacher or another adult who is not the student’s parent and/or guardian. Lastly, the student should complete and submit an application form, which is available on the APCC page of the JASG’s website atwww.JASGeorgia.org/APCC.


The deadline for submission is February 5, 2018. Any applications received after the deadline will not be considered.


ABOUT APCC

The APCC has been held annually since 1989 with the objectives of:

1) generating appreciation for the culture of other nations and regions;

2) promoting mutual understanding and friendship;

3) nurturing international awareness in the region through young people.


The theme of the conference is “We are the BRIDGE: We connect dreams around the world.”


For more information on this year’s conference or if you know of any elementary students who would be interested in applying in future years, please contact the JASG at 404-842-1400 or Admin@JASGeorgia.org. For more information about the APCC itself, please visit www.apcc.gr.jp.

CLINIC CORNER

Prevent the Flu

This time of the year is often referred to as flu season. CDC and public health officials recommend everyone to get a flu vaccine every year. It is not too late to get a vaccination which is the best way to prevent the flu. The flu vaccine cannot cause flu because the vaccine contains an inactivated virus or virus particles.


Tip to Stave Off the Flu:

  1. The first thing is simple….WASH YOUR HANDS FREQUENTLY! Wash hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer/rub. Did you know the single most important thing you can do to prevent the spread of infectious illnesses is washing your hands? While most of us already know this, it is sometimes hard to remember this simple little important task during a busy day.
  2. Teach children not to share personal items like drinks, food, eating utensils or other personal items such as towels, combs, brushes, clothes, and cosmetics.
  3. Wash athletic practice clothing each day, and shower after any contact sport.
  4. Stay home if you are sick and not going to a medical care facility, especially during the first days of illness when symptoms are more severe and the infection is most contagious. Return to work or school only after symptoms have improved and after you have had no fever for at least 24 hours.
  5. Try to avoid close contact with people who are sick and take flu antiviral medications if your doctor prescribes them.
  6. Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu. Viruses lurk in places you wouldn’t think. Everyone is vulnerable to picking up viruses.
  7. Eat healthy food (fruits and veggies) and drink plenty of fluids.
  8. Make sure your vaccinations are up-to-date. Again, get vaccinated against the flu – flu vaccination is the best protection against the flu, and wash your hands frequently!

Attention Elkins Pointe Parents: SPINE ALERT!

The annual Scoliosis Screening Event for EPMS students is coming up very soon, on Feb. 2nd. Please sign up to be part of the screening team here.


This is a really important event because the ages of 11-14 are the prime time for identification of Scoliosis of the spine. Early detection and treatment are the keys to reversing Scoliosis so it is not a life-long problem. Fulton County nurses run the event, but every year we need parent volunteers to be the "first eyes." Parent Screeners act as primary checkers to make the process move smoothly and quickly for the students. With this important event only 3 weeks away, the PTSA is in desperate need of Scoliosis Screeners for a 3 1/2 hour window on Feb. 2nd from 11:45 am to 3:00 pm. Please see the SignupGenius below if you can sign up as a volunteer. Bonus: We will feed you lunch, snacks, and coffee during the day!


If you were certified last year through the Training Course, you DO NOT NEED to take it again. However, if you have not taken the training course within the last 18 months, you will NEED to attend -- it is a painless 1 1/2 hours on Jan 24th, and then you will be certified for 2 years. Please consider volunteering your time for this very worthwhile service event that EPMS provides to its students. Please, direct questions to Jennifer Rodman: jcrodman@yahoo.com
