RULES AND REGULATIONS

Parents, we need your help with these items:


  • Following Early Check-Out Procedures - Students must have a note in the morning if they are checking out. Calling into the classroom causes interruptions and a heavy burden on the front office staff.


  • Dress Code - Appropriate length shorts. Dress Code will be enforced through the last day of school. Please check to make sure that your child is not wearing short, shorts or clothing that exposes mid-drift.


  • Change of Transportation - If your child wishes to go home with another student, both parents send in a note in the morning.
Happy Weekend Titans,


What a fantastic week! Testing is officially over. Thank you to our testing coordinator, Assistant Principal Ayo Richardson for a smooth and seamless testing period. The Band and Orchestra returned home from their respective journeys. Congratulations to Mr. Wilson and Ms. Burkhardt on bringing back three trophies from the Orlando band competition. Our Orchestra enjoyed their adventure to Gatlinburg where they played with a Bluegrass band and hiked the Smoky Mountains. 8th graders enjoyed Career Day and their celebratory dance, "A Night in Paris." Thank you to our Career Day guests for bringing the business world to our students by sharing their chosen profession. Thank you to the countless PTSA and parent volunteers for transforming the school into the magical city l'amour.


Next week, we begin device collection on Wednesday, May 15th through Friday, May 17th. We will need parent volunteers to collect our 1,000+ laptops. Please sign up here to help with the collection.


Enjoy your Mother's Day weekend,


Kindra L. Smith, Ed.S

WINTER COTILLION IS COMING...IN JANUARY 2020!

Save the date!! The Bridges/North Atlanta Cotillion is coming January 2020!\


We are excited to start our classes on Sunday, January 5 at The Country Club of Roswell! Come have fun with us while learning dance and etiquette! Registration will open November 1.


This is not your grandmother’s cotillion! The Seventh Graders will learn basic ballroom dancing and popular dance (Shag, Swing, Free Style, Line, and Slow), as well as many important social and professional skills the students will need to know now and throughout their lives. The Seventh Grade class will culminate in a Parents Showcase displaying the Program as parents observe all their child has learned. Students will also enjoy a 50's Party filled with games, contests, dancing, and pizza!


For Eighth Graders, the classes will review the basics taught in year one, and the students will learn many new dances including Latin, Swing, and Hustle. An extensive Table Manners segment will further develop your child’s social graces. Dating, interviews and making conversation will also be covered. The Eighth Grade Program will culminate in a Dinner Dance that brings all of the students’ new skills into practice. New students are always welcome in 8th grade.


You can expect your child to gain confidence in our classes, and learn how to greet, shake hands and converse with adults—an all-important skill as the dating years approach. They will also discuss social media etiquette! But most of all, your teen will have fun!


For more information, please contact:
