Request for Flexibility Comment Period 11/11 - 12/11
Our School Governance Council (SGC) recently voted to move forward with two Requests for Flexibility (RFF) for the 2014-15 school year. Our SGC is making two flexibility requests; one for flexibility with Fulton County's TAG Resource Model (coupled with TAG Endorsement training for all classroom teachers) and one for flexibility with student dismissal time to provide 6 Early Release Days for teacher training.
While I am a non-voting member of our SGC, I am very excited to bring these RFF's forward for our school as I believe they will help us achieve our Strategic Plan goals and improve our overall instructional effectiveness.
Per Fulton County Charter Guidelines, these RFF's are posted for a 30-day comment period before our SGC makes a final vote to bring these requests forward for system approval. Visit our Governance Council page using the drop-down menu on the About tab on our main header or by clicking here. You can also access and/or drop off your Comment Form at our front desk.
All comments must be made between 11/11/13 and 12/11/13 and will be made available for public viewing as part of our SGC records. Comments can also be provided in person during our next SGC meeting on 12/6/13 at 7:30 AM (see SGC page for sign-up details).
Shakerag Giving Tree
Our PTA is collecting new toys for local children in need - our annual "Giving Tree" collection. Please help join our efforts to make the holidays a little brighter for families in need. Visit our PTA page for more information.
Additionally, we are collecting gently used clothing, books, toys, shoes (and anything else you'd like to donate that can be sold); a drop box is located in our atrium to support several of our students' efforts (Kids Support Kids) as they raise money to help others in need. Please drop off any items you can donate before 12/05/13.
Lost and Found
Are your children missing something? It might be in our Lost and Found! If the clothing is labeled, we will get it back to the owner. If not, our Lost and Found is in our atrium next week. Make sure your child checks the Lost and Found for any missing clothing, and label those clothes! All items in Lost and Found not claimed by Friday, December 13th will be donated to charity.
