Holiday Staff Potluck Celebration - 4pm Thursday!

I look forward to celebrating with you Thursday. Durand Mill's Clubhouse is a less than a mile away from Druid Hills. Here is the list of requested items to bring.

EOC Updates

Tuesday and Wednesday are makeup days for End of Course Testing. Please make sure to provide identified students with passes and ensure students are not sitting in your classroom when they should be testing. Testing lists will go out this afternoon.

Special Thank Yous go to Mr. Alexander, Ms. Darden, Ms. Trivedi, Ms. Grant, Ms. Nicholson, Ms. Bouer, and to all teachers who have served as proctors or relievers.

2016 CCRPI

The 2016 CCRPI has been published...and Druid Hills High earned a 80.6. This is a 3.6 point increase from our 2015 CCRPI. Druid Hills exceeded both the district (73.7) and state (75.7) averages.

Thank you for all your hard work in supporting our students and our school!

Heating Update

Last Friday, it was discovered that a motor associated with the boiler that is more than likely supplying warm loop water to individual units is bad.

Our technician and he is on the way to purchase a new motor this morning. The hope is that he will have the install completed by noon. At that point, we can assess each of your individual concerns if this does not remedy your lack of heat.

We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused many of you and our students. Please know that our technician is actively working on restoring heat throughout the building.

Turn It In is Back!

The PTSA has purchased a school-wide license for TurnItIn. For those new to TurnItIn, the online program check for potential plagarism, easily provide feedback (both written and voice), grade papers using a rubric, and can be utilized for peer review.

We would like as many classes to utilize TurnItIn as possible. We will likely hold a brief tutorial at our January Faculty Meeting.

Coat Drive - from Ms. Ford

I know that it is a trend now to walk around with the blankets on, but a lot of kids really cannot afford a coat, and the weather outside is getting frightful! There will be a box in the Counseling Office for any gently used or new winter items (coats, hats, sweaters, scarves, gloves). Thank you in advance for your generosity!

From Ms. Austin
