Vanguard Transfers

If you are transferring between schools for the 2016-2017 school year, here are some things you need to know:

  • You will take all of your Vanguard items to your new school with you - iPad and anything purchased with Vanguard money.
  • At the beginning of the year we indicated you would lose your spot if there wasn't one available at your transfer school. However, as of right now, you will ALL remain on the Vanguard team. :) We will cross the membership bridge when we get to it.

Vanguard Exits

If you are leaving Fulton County or the Vanguard team, please be sure to do the following things:

  • Your iPad (case & charger) will need to be returned to Fulton. If you have not gotten an email with me about where to return it, please let me know.
  • Items you've purchased with Vanguard funds need to remain at your school with other Vanguard members. Please spread them across the remaining folks.

Help Wanted

This summer the Instructional Technology department will be working to add digital resources (web links) to Safari montage. If you have high-quality websites that you have a curated for the standards you teach and they are in a format that is easy to send, please email them to Mindy Ramon.

In Case You Were Wondering.... was a pretty fantastic weekend for my daughter at her gymnastics competition. Eight different states were represented and she placed 2nd All-Around in her age division. She made it to the podium in each of the events too. All-in-all, it was a wonderful time!
