2020-2021 Quarter 2

Hello Parents and Students,

We are now full swing into Quarter 2 for the first semester. Quarter 2 began November 12, 2020 and will end on February 4, 2021.

I am reaching out to students and families who may not have passed the Quarter 1 Report Card. Report Cards for Quarter 1 were issued, via PowerSchool, on November 18, 2020. GAA is offering a Grade Repair Opportunity for students that may have failed one or more classes for Quarter 1. If you believe your child needs Grade Repair, please contact me to set up this opportunity. Contact information is below.

There are a lot of exciting things planned for Quarter 2. We need your parental support with student attendance; students should be logging in everyday to their classes. If students will be absent, please notify the office at 901-416-3212.

Parents if you have any questions or concerns about your child's attendance, grades, etc. please reach out to us for assistance.

We look forward to working with you to help our students succeed.


Mrs. Curtrice L. Smith
