VanCon 2016 Registration - DO IT NOW!

It is ESSENTIAL that if you would like to attend VanCon 2016 (May 31 @ the Georgia Tech Hotel & Conference Center), you register TODAY! We will be opening up and giving out the remaining tickets soon!

Remember these things:

  1. It's insanely amazing learning from your peers and national speakers!
  2. It's ALL free - food, parking, learning. Did you hear me? I said FREE!
  3. Vanguard members get PAID to attend!

It is going to be a truly incredible day. We'll have some awards, giveaways, and more surprises for you, so you don't want to miss it!


Spread the Word - Coding Camp for Girls!

Have students looking for something to do this summer? There's a coding camp for girls taking place! Take a look and then spread the word!

Be sure to complete your March reflection/touch base if you haven't already.


Transfers and Exits

  • If you're transferring within or leaving Fulton County, please let me know as soon as it's official.
  • If you are transferring, the items you've purchased with Vanguard funds will GO WITH YOU!
  • If you are leaving Fulton County, the items you've purchased will stay at your school with the remaining Vanguard members.

Not Getting Emails?

Be sure to regularly check your CLUTTER folder on Outlook. I'm not sure there's a rhyme or reason to what gets sent there, but things are ending up in there that shouldn't be. Take a second to see what might be in there!
