School Governance Council Elections

Alpharetta High School will be electing new representatives to serve on the School Governance Council. We have one position open for teachers. Our School Governance Council has a leadership role in the governance of the school. The Council works with the principal on the long-term vision and strategy for the school. They are responsible for approving the school’s strategic plan and budget recommendations, as well as design innovative solutions to increase academic achievement and meet the unique needs of our school community. This past year, our Council worked diligently to develop a strategic plan, RFFs and a seed fund request. Elections for the teacher position on the School Governance Council will be held March 23rd-March 29th.

For additional information on our School Governance Councils and elections, view our School Governance Council webpage: http://school.fultonschools.org/hs/alpharetta/Pages/School-Governance-Council.aspx

Candidates interested in running for an elected position on the Council must complete a candidate declaration form and submit to the district office by March 1st.

Alpharetta Testing Website

Flandecia has created a testing website that you can check regularly to get any info on what is happening in the world of testing. On the calendar page are the windows for all EOCs. Specific SLO dates will be updated once those are set.

The AHS Faculty High School Photo

Who is this staff member?

Last week’s photo was of Mike Nance, Social Studies teacher and department chair. Who knew he was a redhead?

Flavia Villarinho was the first staff member to guess correctly AGAIN (three weeks in a row) and earn a jeans sticker! Thank you all for playing each week!

Please keep sending in photos for us to identify.

Morning Duty

Frank will send out an email each week to those who have duty. If something comes up and you find you cannot cover your scheduled more supervision, please make coverage arrangements with a colleague. It is important our school is well supervised to ensure safety.

Need Power?

Teachers may visit the Media Center and see Ms. Kelly or Mrs. Hunter to borrow/receive two black power chords to use in their classrooms. The power cords will need to be returned at the end of the year.
