Three RMSOTA Students Selected as State Winners for the Georgia All-State Art Symposium
Three students from Rainey-McCullers were selected as State Winners for the Georgia All-State Art Symposium. Shane Bailo (9th grade), Mckayla Hypes (10th grade), and Shiloh Perry (9th grade) will have their work exhibited at the All-State Art Symposium Exhibition at the Corn Center for Visual Arts at Columbus State University on March 10, 2018.
All State Winners in the exhibition will also be eligible for consideration for additional awards that will be presented at the symposium. Each high school art teacher is allowed to submit no more than 5 pieces, and our students competed against other students in grades 9-12 across Georgia Art Education District 8 to be selected. We are proud of their hard work, dedication, and contributions to our school. We are also proud of the work that Ms. Lovin does with our students to grow their artistic abilities. Ms. Lovin is truly a passionate educator.

Current 8th Grade Student Intent to Return Survey
URGENT: GEORGIA PARENT SURVEY
The Georgia Parent Survey is modeled after the Georgia Student Survey and contains 24 questions. Parents may complete the survey using their personal computer, smartphones or tablet. For parents that do not have access to the Internet, provisions can be made by scheduling dates and times to allow parents to complete the Georgia Parent Survey at school. All parents are encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. Individual data results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online. The URL address for the Georgia Parent Survey is posted below.
