Spartan Nation,

The Spartan Scoop is a labor of love project each month for our team. Our goal for The Spartan Scoop is to provide a streamlined way of communicating many different topics in the work we do with our students and families. To ensure we are providing exactly what our students, parents and community needs, we would love for you to provide some quick feedback on this link.

Is your student behind in one of their academic classes? If so, attend Power Surge Saturdays to get caught up!

Is the traditional college route not for you/your student?

Check out all of these organizations that offer apprenticeships here in Georgia. These industries are eager to find hard-working & dependable workers that are willing to learn something new. They will do on-the-job training, offer jobs with potential for growth and sometimes cover the costs of formal licensure or credentialing.

Freshman!! Class of 2025

Hey Freshman---Did you know that Grades are FINAL in December???

This is a friendly reminder to pull up your grades as the ending grade in December will report to your transcript for all colleges, future employers, enlistment recruiters and family to see! Remember, these grades will NOT be averaged from the prior two 6 week progress reports from Nov and Sept.

How can you improve your Grades?

1. Come to school and BE ON TIME!

2. Engage in learning during class (pay attention!)

3. Complete work. If your teacher accepts late work, turn it in late for points off...that is better than a zero!


5. Does your teacher do test corrections or opportunities to re-take the exam...If so, these are wonderful gifts that your teacher is throwing at you to improve! JUST DO IT!

6. Have a one-on-one conversation with your teacher. If you are too shy to approach him/her/they, send them an email.

7. Study!!!! ESPECIALLY if you have an EOC! EOC's are worth 20% of your grade.

Ok, real talk...what happens if you fail the course?

-If you get between a 60-69 you can participate in Course Extension in January to earn a 70 (passing credit). This prevents you from having to retake the whole course again. Your teacher will sign you up for it. You must attend & do the work!

-If you are lucky, you may be able to re-take the course 2nd semester but this is not always a guarantee as our classes are VERY full.

-After school grad point on Tues and Thursday either F2F or virtually. $40 per 1.0 credit. See your counselor for more info.

-Retake class next year; risk not being promoted.


-Earn a total of 5 credits.

-Out of that 5 credits, one must be an English Literature credit, one a Math credit and one a Science credit.
