Census Verification for New Student Information System Coming Soon

Parents,

Please be on the lookout for the “Census Verification” email from Fulton County. You will need to verify your household information for our new student information system, Infinite Campus. Starting next school year, Fulton County Schools will use Infinite Campus to communicate your child’s grade, attendance, etc. instead of Home Access Center. The link to FCS Infinite Campus will be posted on May 8th on the school website for your review. You will receive more detailed information via emails and flyers. There will also be parent support line available during 7/10-8/31/2019.

Rising 6th Grade Student/Parent Boot Camp - Wednesday, July 31st

On Wednesday, July 31, 2019, rising 6th grade students are invited to a half-day boot camp filled with pertinent information on "Getting to Know TRMS." The session is free of charge, and both students and parents are welcome. Students will have opportunities to learn ins and outs of Taylor Road, from learning to open lockers to using technology. Parents will also have informational sessions of their own to learn about middle school expectations and strategies to navigate through social/emotional changes and needs of young adolescence led by a licensed counselor from the Summit Counseling Center.


You only need to attend ONE session, either in the morning or afternoon. There will be no snacks or meals served. Students may bring a water bottle and simple snacks. If you have more than one student wishing to attend the session, please fill out the form for each student using the link provided below. See you there!

These study guides are provided by the state department of education to provide practice questions, vocabulary, formulas, and other pertinent information for your students as they prepare for the assessments in April and May. Please check out the study guides which can be found on the TRMS MILESTONES INFORMATION page.
