Arrive as soon as you finish graduation practice at ECHS
Dressed in cap/gown

Also, if you know of someone graduating who attended Poplar Road, please spread the word. We realize that some students will still have school commitments and won't be able to attend since this is not an excused absence. But if you can make it, we would love to see you!! We are excited about this opportunity!!

Milestones Update

The Coweta County School System will not retest the Georgia MIlestones' Test this year. We will send home students reports as soon as they are received.
