 2016-2017 School Year

We hope you are all having a great summer!  We can't wait to see everyone at our annual Sneak Peek on August 4th (8:00 AM – 11:00 AM). The first day of school is August 8th (7:40 AM – 2:20 PM).  Please click here to review the 2016-2017 school calendar for Shakerag Elementary. Our school calendar is slightly different from the original Fulton County school calendar. Our students will also be out on September 2nd, November 7th, February 21st and March 31st so our teachers can engage in additional professional development opportunities.

The Fulton County Summer Reading List is Now Available

Research has found that when children leave the structured environment of the classroom for summer break, many stop reading – and their reading abilities start to slip. Strong readers plateau. Struggling readers fall even farther behind.

So we are challenging all Fulton County students 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
  • 6-12 students: 5 fiction books and 5 non-fiction books

Please visit www.fultonmeti.org for more information.

Personalized Learning

Shakerag is part of Fulton County's first group of schools working towards the goal of Personalized Learning for our students. We are excited to begin the work of transforming education to help challenge and engage students for the 21st century.

Our SGC recently approved our request to receive Microsoft Surface 3 Tablets as our Personalized Learning device. We received class sets of these in February of this year. Per Fulton County guidelines, Shakerag received one set of 10 devices for every 30 students enrolled and one device for every teacher - in all Shakerag has a total of 267 student devices and 50 teacher/staff devices!

Below is a quick look at our past, present and future learning.
