Congratulations 5th Grade!
I'm so proud of our 5th grade students! Thank you parents for sharing them with us this year - they are amazing!
Boosterthon Book-Fit Reading Challenge!
We did it! Our students read an average of 31 laps and read over 300,000 minutes the last 10 days of school. That's a lot of reading! As a special reward our favorite PE teacher was "stuck" to the wall by all our students. Wow, that's a lot of tape!
It's not too late to send in your pledges, helping us raise funds to transform our Media Center with fun furniture, flexible spaces and more mobile devices. Send in your check (made payable to Shakerag Foundation) or log on to www.funrun.com by Friday, May 29.
Thanks for a great year!
On behalf of all of us at Shakerag, thank you for making our 2014-2015 school year amazing! We've thoroughly enjoyed spending the year with your children - they are fantastic!
We hope everyone has a wonderful summer and we look forward to seeing all our little sharks in August. Our Sneak Peek will be on Thursday, August 6th and our first day of school is August 10th.
Read This Summer!
We are pleased to announce the Fulton County School's Summer Reading List. Please find the list at this link: http://www.fultonmeti.org/ The goal of the summer reading list is to provide students with a wide variety of books to enjoy during the summer months. Students may wish to read works from other level lists as appropriate. It is our hopes that the summer reading list will encourage students to make reading an essential part of summer vacation.
Students can access books from the summer reading list via MACKINVIA and OVERDRIVE (middle and high school students only) using their FCS network ID and passcode. The electronic books can be enjoyed on their computer, mobile device, smartphone or eReader device anywhere and anytime. They can also download titles directly to their computer or device.
