REACH Scholars Honored at Luncheon
On January 9, District leaders and REACH Scholars gathered for a luncheon to celebrate these students. REACH Scholars - Realizing Educational Achievement Can Happen Scholarship Program - are identified during their eighth grade year for a merit- and need-based scholarship for their college career. These students must meet discipline and grade requirements throughout high school to complete the program.
As part of the luncheon, leaders and students discussed issues, and several students shared their educational journeys. One of those students was Northeast High School junior Kennedy Randall.
"The REACH Scholarship program developed my mind and guided me to a higher level of maturity," she said. "Now I will pass my knowledge and help inspire the world of tomorrow because of the knowledge that I was given in the REACH Scholarship program today."
These scholarships are funded, in part, by local donations and through the REACH for Your Jeans initiative in the District. The District appreciates District employees and community partners like Central Georgia Technical College, Sheridan Construction and MidSouth Community Federal Credit Union for their support of this program!

New Teachers Receive Orientation
"We think it is important that all teachers joining the District have an understanding of what our goals and values are, and we just want them to feel welcome," said Melanique Floyd, coordinator of talent management.
Veterans Students Participate in Paint Party
Students in second through fifth grades at Veterans Elementary School that met their Accelerated Reader goals for December were invited to participate in an Accelerated Reader Paint Party in the Media Center. The school's media specialist and media clerk led the party by modeling step by step directions on how to paint a snowman. The students used cardboard boxes and pieces of cardboard as a way to "recycle." The artwork will be displayed at the school for everyone to enjoy.
Central Students Work Together for Experiences
Central High School Marketing Program/DECA and the PEC Department collaborated to create meaningful lessons and activities for students with disabilities. The PEC/Access classes collaborate once a week with the Marketing Program and perform learning skills tasks for the workplace in the Central Station School Store. In December, the school and community were invited to the PEC & DECA Day Out event in which students in both the Marketing and PEC/Access programs could demonstrate workplace and collaborative skills. It was a blended showcase of talent and job readiness skills being taught to all students, on any level.
