January 2015

Our first bell rings each morning at 7:40 AM – if you are planning on dropping your child off in the morning you can do so beginning at 7:10. Please know that our morning car pool is very busy between 7:30 and 7:40 – the best way to ensure your child is here on time is to arrange for an early drop off or for him/her to ride the bus.

During the winter, it is important to always come to school prepared for the weather. Please send your child in with a jacket (labeled!) in case we have to go outside for any reason.

As a reminder, our lunch schedules changed with the start of the new year - please click here for our currentlunch times.

Click here for a link to the recent parent letter explaining our new TAG structure. All TAG students now attend TAG class for 50 minutes each day instead of attending TAG class all day one day per week.

The 14th Annual Technology Competition

The 14th Annual Technology Competition will be held January 31, 2015 at Centennial High School. The competition is open to students in grades 3 through 12. The registration period for the competition is closed. We have 13 Shakerag students entered in the competition. They will be provided appointment times soon for the contest.

The School Liaison for the Technology Competition is Shakerag's Technology Specialist, Mr. Casey Hines (hinesc@fultonschools.org) and he is the point of contact for all information regarding the competition. Please visit the Technology Competition website to learn more about the rules and guidelines for the competition.


Beginning With the End in Mind (Habit #2)

We encourage all our students to start thinking about their future and encourage them to wear their college spirit attire every Monday. Please discuss and promote the importance of higher education with your children and encourage them to wear college spirit on these days. If your child has another dream that takes him/her on an alternate route instead of college (i.e. The Julliard School), we encourage him/her to wear and celebrate that as well!


2014-15 School Year Amended Calendar

As a Cohort 1 school, we have an adjusted calendar this year, as we have 5 Professional Learning days for all teachers as we are working to provide training for all our teaching staff on engaging TAG strategies.  We are very appreciative of our parent community to support this initiative, as we are working hard on these days to improve our instructional practices. We are studying different strategies that engage and challenge all learners, helping our teachers better meet the needs of all our students in every classroom. On the following days we will not have school for students (Shakerag Elementary only):

8/29/14,   9/29/14,   11/21/14,   2/13/15,   3/12/15

​Parents that need affordable care for their children during these days are encouraged to talk to the YMCA (shakeragSDO.pdf) who will host Shakerag children on these days for a nominal fee. 



Georgia Assessments

Our state is transitioning to using a Student Growth Model (SGM) to assess student achievement. This model uses standardized test data to compare student progress over time to other students of similar academic ability. Currently, the SGM is calculated for elementary schools using the CRCT; in the future the SGM will use the new statewide test (Georgia Milestones) to calculate each students' growth percentile.
