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.
It's time to start collecting BOX TOPS!! Box Tops can be found on many boxed grocery items such as General Mills cereals, Ziploc storage bags, Totino's pizza, Green Giant Vegetables, Kleenex Tissues, Yoplait Go-Gurt, Annie's Cookies and crackers AND MANY MANY MORE!!
Just cut them off participating products and turn them into your child's teacher by FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14th. Class that turns in the most BOX TOPS will win a class party!!

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!
