April 2021 Hornet Connection
PCS Parent and Family Newsletter
Pelham City Schools Charter System will provide all children an equitable and excellenteducation that, upon graduation, prepares them for college, career and life.
We believe our children deserve the best education we can give them and that begins with the best partnership we can have with our families from before they come to school all the way to graduation!
The Georgia Department of Education has recently published an excellent guide entitled, A Family's Guide to Title 1 which helps explains the newly named education law, Every Student Succeeds Act (ESEA). This law focuses on students being fully prepared to graduate and go on to college or career and be successful in the choice they make. Take a minute to explore the Pelham City School website and fine more helpful resources for supporting your students success under the Parent and Family Engagement link!
A Parent's Guide to New Tests in Georgia is a great resource offered by GADOE.
I am also adding the PIRC Request Form again as I did in the last newsletter. Please allow me to help you by providing a free copy of the milestone study guides your student needs. These study guides may also be accessed at the GADOE website as well.
