Summer Reading Challenge
All Fulton County students are challenged to read every day this summer, for at least 15 to 30 minutes. Parents and students are encouraged to visit the Find a Book, Georgia website and make a Summer Reading Pledge. You can also use the website to find book recommendations throughout the summer, all tailored to a student’s interests and Lexile score. (If your child’s Lexile score is not known, the site can estimate reading level based on answers to a few simple questions.) Suggested summer reading goals for students based on grade levels are:
• K-2 - students: 10 books
• 3-5 - students: 8 chapter books
Personalized Learning Devices
At our recent School Governance Council meeting, our SGC approved our recommendation for the Dell Latitude 11 laptop. Our Personalized Learning team, comprised of teachers several grade levels and support staff, compared each of the four available devices (click here for Device Q&A) to see which best supported our instructional model. Click here to see Dunwoody Springs' Instructional Model.
As part of our current SPLOST and Fulton County's Personalized Learning initiative, we will be receiving 10 of these devices for every 30 students enrolled. We expect to receive these devices in the fall! This is very exciting for Dunwoody Springs and we are looking forward to utilizing these new tools to challenge and engage our students.
All volunteers are required to complete the entire Mandated Reporter's online training every year at least 72 hours prior to coming in to volunteer in the classroom or with students at our school. Parents/community members that do not complete this mandatory training will not be allowed to volunteer in classrooms!
