There will be no school for all staff and students on Monday, September 3 in observance of the Labor Day holiday.
Also, there will be no school for students on Tuesday, September 4 for our first Shakerag staff Professional Development Day.
On August 21 and August 22 we will hold our annual Curriculum Nights. These nights are intended to provide an opportunity for you to meet your child's teacher, establish effective communication, and learn more about each teacher's classroom routines, procedures and expectations for the year. We will begin promptly at 6:30 p.m. in your child's homeroom and end at 7:30 p.m. (consider arriving by 6:15 p.m. to ensure adequate time to park/walk to your child's classroom). Also, all parents are invited to attend our first PTO meeting of the year on 8/22 at 7:40 p.m. in our cafeteria. This is a night for parents and teachers only; if you must bring your child, he/she will need to sit with you in the classroom for the duration of the evening.
· 8/21 for all Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade parents
· 8/22 for all 3rd, 4th and 5th grade parents (PTO meeting at 7:40 p.m. in our cafeteria)

Shakerag Volunteer Registration
To keep in compliance with State Law and best practices, for the 2018-2019 school year, we will require that all persons interested in volunteering in the Fulton County School District to re-register/register (even if a person has completed an application in the past) by completing the new online volunteer registration/application process. The registration process can be found on the FCS District Website under Community/Partners & Volunteers or Click Here. Applicants should be prepared to spend about 10-15 minutes for the training and application process. In accordance with State Law, all volunteers must be current with the Child Abuse Reporting Protocol Training before being allowed to volunteer in our schools. It is very important that volunteers enter their full legal name as it appears on their government issued ID (please do not use nicknames or "goes by" names on the application). All applicants must wait 24 hours after applying for application processing and approval.
As part of our move towards Personalized Learning, we will be teaching all our students how to use the Internet safely, ethically, and responsibly. Visit Common Sense Media for tools that you can use at home to further support these goals.
