Renovations at Shakerag

We are excited to be getting new floors in some areas of the building and updates to our roof this summer. In order to complete this work, the Shakerag school building will be vacated effective at the close of business on Friday, May 27th. In effect the school building will be CLOSED until work is completed. Therefore no visitors or deliveries will be accepted at the Shakerag location.

During the renovation work, Shakerag summer staff will be located at River Trail Middle School located at 10795 Rogers Circle, Johns Creek, GA 30097. If you need to contact us or have any questions, please call us at 470-254-3880 or River Trail's number at 470-254-3860.

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.

Fulton County School Bus Safety Road-E-OHeather Bus Driver 3.jpg

The School Bus Safety Road-e-o held at North Transportation on Saturday, April 23, brought drivers from north county schools and south county schools, representing the most skilled drivers in all of Fulton County Schools.  All of these drivers went through a preliminary competition two weeks prior, which narrowed the field down to six from north and six from south.  The competition included events that demonstrated the drivers' technical skills, and also included events that demonstrated the drivers' knowledge and abilities in loading/unloading students, and the prescribed method for safely crossing railroad tracks.  In addition to the regular education drivers, there was also a separate competition for special needs drivers, which included many events specific to special needs.

In the regular education category, Heather Daklouche, who drives for Shakerag Elementary, River Trail Middle and Northview High, placed third overall in the county, with a score of 474 out of a possible score of 500.  Heather showed a tremendous amount of practice and preparation, as well as the ability to perform well under pressure.  She did exceptionally well and made all of us in the Northview zone extremely proud!

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.
