Where Learning Comes First
Dear Head Community,
Happy New Year! Welcome to 2023! It was so fun to see all the smiling faces on Thursday morning as we welcomed students back to school after the break. We are off to another great semester of teaching and learning!
Your children may have shared this with you already as they were able to see it this week... there has been some construction completed over the break in our front lobby. A second set of doors have been installed making a new security vestibule. For right now, we have not changed any security procedures. The doors are very well done and look nice in our foyer. We will adjust furniture and art to fit the space shortly! I do not yet have a timeline for the next phase, but I anticipate it being fully completed within the next few months. Once the entire system is installed and functional, we will update parents.

It is time to get Georgia Milestones EOG test dates on your calendar! Having these dates on the calendar can assist you in planning trips and appointments around these important dates for your student. We will provide more detailed information as it is made available.

Connecting With the Community
Brookwood High School is holding a community meeting next week. The details are listed above.
Registration for the 2023-24 school year is now underway for some GCPS schools and programs!
Each year, a few special GCPS schools, programs, and a local charter school conduct activities during the winter to register students for the upcoming school year.
That process has begun for one school, with additional events planned through February for the other schools and programs. Learn more and find important links here: https://bit.ly/gcps_SR23-24
