On behalf of all of us at Shakerag, thank you for sharing your amazing children with us this year. We have enjoyed teaching and learning with them and are proud of their efforts and enthusiasm for school. This time of year is always a little sad for us as we say farewell to our 5th graders as they go off to River Trail and those that may not be returning in the fall. We wish you all nothing but continued success!
We also want to thank our countless volunteers and business partners that helped make this a special year for our children - we appreciate you!
We hope you all have an AMAZING summer and we look forward to seeing everyone in August!
Our summer office hours will be Monday – Friday from 7:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. We will be registering students on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. If you have a student who will be new to Shakerag, or meet a new neighbor this summer, please encourage them to come register as soon as possible! IF YOU WILL NOT BE RETURNING NEXT YEAR, please make sure Sydney Johnson, our data clerk, is aware. You can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Online Enrollment is quick and easy!
We anticipate receiving individual student results for the GA Milestones assessment in late July. We will get them ready to send home with students in August upon our return. Once we have them ready for distribution, we will post a notification on our website. Those of you that would like to pick them up prior to the start of the school year may do so during our normal summer hours (7:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.). The parents of students in grades 3 and 5 who may not have met state promotion criteria have already been notified.
A Look at the Future
We can’t wait to see all of our students at our annual Sneak Peek on August 8 (8:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.). The first day of school is August 12 (school hours are: 7:40 a.m. – 2:20 p.m.).
Infinite Campus is coming to Fulton County Schools in July 2019.
