GA Information for All

Message from Dr. Wrenn

Next year, our Northern campus will be located at the former Mary Potter Middle School and Tar River Campus. We do plan to extend the school day slightly and will move to a new online content provider. Our staff is working to improve the alignment and times to allow for direct instruction.


We are growing! Please continue to spread the word...we are working towards adding two teachers for next year and three would be even better! This will reduce the grade levels taught by each teacher.


Be on the lookout for an end of year survey to gain your feedback from this year and suggestions for next year to be sent out in late May.


Thank you for sharing your children with us. We are honored to work with you.


Warm Regards,

~Vanessa Wrenn

Message from Middle Grade Teachers

Good morning learning coaches!


Spring break is almost here! Don't forget that spring break will be from April 15-April 22. Students will not have school or a checklist during this time.


Report cards will be going out this week. Letters were sent home about parent-teacher conferences. These were by teacher request only. If we requested a parent-teacher conference with you, PLEASE make sure you schedule a time to come talk with us. It is extremely important that we talk with you about your student's progress.


We will not have any middle grades tutoring this week due to conferences. All students must be picked up no later than 1 pm every day this week.


Please make sure your student is completing the checklist each week. We have had more and more students drop off in completing their checklist. As we quickly approach the end of the school year, it is important that students keep working hard on their assignments.


Thank you for all you do and please let us know if you have any questions!
