Social Studies Standards
The State Board of Education is currently in the process of reviewing Social Studies Standards. The proposed draft is available for parent review for 30 days. Based on survey data, the State Board of Education will review the standards for approval at the June 9, 2016, meeting. The tentative timeline for implementation will be during the 2017-2018 school year.
Click the link below to review the standards, see a crosswalk of the revised GSE compared to the current GPS, and access the link to a brief feedback survey. The survey will be posted for 30 days for public review and comment.
Please remember to pick up your child's medicine from the school clinic.
Any medicine left in the clinic after May 26 will be thrown out.
As of May 13, 2016, students will not have the opportunity to "charge" their meals. Please ensure that your student has sufficient funds on his/her lunch account or brings in cash or check to cover the cost of his/her meal. If your student does not have money on his/her lunch account and does not bring in payment for a meal, he/she will receive a courtesy meal consisting of a cheese sandwich and milk. Payments for meals can be made by sending cash or check to the cafeteria manager, or online at www.mypaymentsplus.com. Please feel free to call Joey Rowe, Birmingham Falls Cafeteria Manager, at (470)254-2805 if you have any questions or concerns.

Working From Home with the Redbird Mathematics
We are excited to inform you that your child currently has a student account for Redbird Mathematics. This account was obtained through their academic institution. Redbird Mathematics is a K-7 web based mathematics curricula developed at Stanford University. Besides the school environment students may also elect to use Redbird Math in alternative locations. In fact, Redbird Math can be accessed from basically anywhere with an internet connection and a modern device. We hope your child enjoys using Redbird Math.
The Redbird Mathematics website where your child will login is listed below.
Username: Your child's 10 digit FC ID/lunch number
Password: Birthdate in 8-digit format (Ex. 01252008)
Each student is on their own learning "pathway" so it is very important to allow your child to work on Redbird independently. If assistance is provided, his/her pathway would change and the content could cause frustration.
Thank you for agreeing to maximize your child's learning experience without assisting them.
