GO HOOCH

We’re proud to announce our newest education partner, AutoBell Car Wash located at 3651 Peachtree Parkway, Suite E-171, Suwanee, GA 30024.

In a show of appreciation, each staff member received their own 2017 AutoBell Car Wash Savings Book chock-full of specials for our many car needs.

We appreciate their dedication and commitment to the educational development and professional achievement of both students and staff here at Taylor Road.

Parents of rising 9th graders

If you’ve never been involved or are looking for a way to serve at Hooch next school year, PTSA is a super way! With your student entering into high school, now is a great time to serve by “shadowing” a current position. By “shadowing” this is a great opportunity to “get your feet wet “& aid in the transition for the following school year. We at Hooch have a few members rolling off their chairperson positions at the end of the 2017-18 school year and would love for you to serve.


A few areas to serve in are Communications, Membership, Legislative, Honor Roll recognition & Staff Appreciation. There are many more opportunities to get involved, see the attached form. We cannot offer the programs/ activities to our students without your help. I would encourage you to get involved and have a voice in yours student’s future whatever that capacity might be.
