Message From the Principal

Happy Winter Break!


Thank you to our teachers, staff, parents, PTSA, families, clubs, and community partners for an absolutely wonderful semester. Our kids are blessed to have you in their lives. Truly....thank you for all you do!


My wish is for all Titans to celebrate the holiday break by staying connected to things that grow their mindsets. Read a favorite book! Work on a puzzle. Learn a new recipe, or tackle a new hobby. Encourage your children to take a break from cell phones/video games. Do something fun like play a card or board game or go to a movie as a family! Consider bringing your family to the Aurora Theater for the special showing ofThe Polar Express” on Sunday, December 23rd at 2:00 pm.


Thank you to the PTSA for surprising and delighting the teachers and staff with a holiday breakfast. Our staff enjoyed taking pictures in the photo booth while enjoying coffee and goodies! Once exams were over, we had some more fun with a staff vs. student basketball game. Thank you to everyone for being good sports and for another smart, happy, and connected year!


Seasons Greetings and a Happy New Year!

The Bridges/North Atlanta Cotillion is coming January 2019!

We are excited to start our classes on Sunday, January 6 at The Country Club of Roswell! Come have fun with us while learning dance and etiquette! Registration is open!!!!


This is not your grandmother’s cotillion! The Seventh Graders will learn basic ballroom dancing and popular dance (Shag, Swing, Free Style, Line and Slow), as well as many important social and professional skills the students will need to know now and throughout their lives. The Seventh Grade class will culminate in a Parents Showcase displaying the Program as parents observe all their child has learned. Students will also enjoy a 50's Party filled with games, contests, dancing and pizza!


For Eighth Graders, the classes will review the basics taught in year one, and the students will learn many new dances including Latin, Swing and Hustle. An extensive Table Manners segment will further develop your child’s social graces. Dating, interviews and making conversation will also be covered. The Eighth Grade Program will culminate in a Dinner Dance that brings all of the students’ new skills into practice. New students are always welcome in 8th grade.


You can expect your child to gain confidence in our classes, and learn how to greet, shake hands and converse with adults—an all-important skill as the dating years approach. They will also discuss social media etiquette! But most of all, your teen will have fun! Tuition is $275 and includes all classes and parties.
