LEGO Robotics

Congratulations to the LEGO Robotics team for their wonderful teamwork at the Super Regionals at Clayton State College this weekend. Thank you to all of the parent volunteers who worked with Ms. Hammer to make this happen for our students.

Thank you to everyone who attended the PTA meeting on Tuesday and watched the LEGO Robotics Team's presentation. Thank you to Ms. Hammer, Mr. McKinley, and the Robotics team for presenting.

Family Engagement Night

Would you like to attend a family engagement night in February, such as a Valentine's Dance? We need a committee of volunteers to plan an event! If you are interested in volunteering, please email or contact a PTA officer.


ITBS Scores

ITBS scores have arrived. They were sent home in the courier on 1/16. Click here to view the ITBS Interpretation Guide. If a Magnet School application form has been done on-line, the application will be automatically updated, so the most current scores will be pulled for the application without any additional efforts on the part of the school or parent.

A Message from the District

The DeKalb County School District has an opportunity to completely change how the district operates, how its schools are governed, and what accountability measures are appropriate. The district has convened a committee to review these options. Known as the Flexibility Advisory Committee (FAC) it is comprised of parents, community members, school staff, and district office personnel; but, the district would also like to hear from all parents, staff, and community members as well. For this reason, five community engagement meetings have been scheduled during January, with at least one meeting occurring in each Region. Anyone interested in learning more about these flexibility options and providing input into the decision-making process are encouraged to attend these sessions. All sessions begin at 6:30 pm.
