Happy Summer Titans!


Congratulations to our Titans on their promotions to the next grade. Thank you to Mr. Wilson for being the master of our awards ceremonies. I am so very proud of our Titans for all they have accomplished this year!


Thank you to our PTSA and Mrs. Ruthie Ellis for arranging the Ippolito's luncheon for our 8th graders. Today was a special day honoring the three years of success in middle school. Our tradition of clapping out the 8th grade class on their final walk always brings tears of joy.


Also today, we said farewell to our retiring teachers Mrs. Lynn Kurowski, Ms. Martha Lightcap, and Ms. Diane Belinfanti. Each of these teachers had a much-celebrated career and made a difference to many students who passed through their classrooms. As Ms. Ward, Mrs. Brady, and Ms. Rankin spoke words honoring each of our retirees we rejoiced in their years of service.


Elkins Pointe will be temporarily relocating to Crabapple Middle School for the summer. If you need to contact us, please refer to the summer hours, address, and phone number below. In the meanwhile, please enjoy your summer. My wish is for every Titan to do all the things that fill your sails, make you smile, and send you on travels far or near!


Have a wonderful summer!


Kindra L. Smith, Ed.S

Principal

Dear Parents,


We are pleased to announce that Fulton County Schools has selected Infinite Campus as our Student Information System. This system will replace eSchool and will be available to all schools and families starting in July 2019. Infinite Campus is a trusted name in student information, serving over 1 million students in Georgia alone. We join several neighboring districts, such as Forsyth, DeKalb, and Atlanta, in utilizing one of the best in class products available today.


Infinite Campus is user-friendly, intuitive and robust. It is being designed with Fulton staff, parents and students in mind to provide real-time online access to student information. The product features and enhancements include a new portal for parents and students (and mobile app), an enhanced gradebook for teachers, user-friendly Online Registration, and tools to assist in maintaining student data.


Campus Parent and Student will replace Home Access Center (HAC) and the Student Access Center (SAC). All parents will create new accounts to access this portal and the mobile app using a quick process that ensures security, ease of use, and data integrity. All students will have access through their Fulton County student accounts.


The attached flyer provides additional information on what to expect from Infinite Campus as well as where and when you will be able to access the system.
