Dear Parents,

Testing at North Springs HS  started today April 24th.  The NSCHS testing calendar link is included with this email, which includes all Georgia Milestone End Of Course tests, as well as AP Exams.  Because testing will be heavily dependent on the student's electronic devices, we want to make sure students are bringing their devices every day to school this week leading up to testing.  Students' devices should be charged, and students should bring their chargers in case their device's battery runs low. http://school.fultonschools.org/hs/northsprings/Pages/2014-15-Testing-Calendar.aspx

Progress reports were distributed to students during homeroom on Thursday.  Please check with your student to review grades and make that final push with 4 weeks of school left.

As we approach the end of the school year, there will be several deadlines that parents and students will need to make themselves aware of, especially our seniors who intend to participate in the graduation ceremony on May 25th.  These will be communicated in multiple formats, but parents and students should take note of these so that they do not come as a surprise right before graduation.

April 27-28-  Senior Obligation Information in the commons. This is the opportunity to determine which financial and textbook obligations need to be closed out before graduation.

May 12th-       The absolute last day for seniors to complete any online courses that need to be used to determine graduation eligibility. 

May 19th-       The last day for seniors to clear financial obligations to be eligible to participate in graduation.

May 21st-       Baccalaureate at Dunwoody United Methodist Church

May 24th-       Graduation practice and ticket distribution.

May 25th-       Graduation at Georgia State University (1pm)

Senior Spirit Week is this week.  This is the kick-off to countdown to graduation.  Please see the enclosed calendar for all the special activities and timelines for our seniors.  33 days and counting until graduation!  Senior Dates 

The North Springs Senior Events Committee is sponsoring Senior Orange Envelopes for all graduating seniors. This is a special opportunity to honor our 2017 graduates with personalized notes or cards to commemorate this big event in their lives. We invite you, other family members, friends, etc. to write notes of congratulations to your son or daughter. We will collect these cards and notes for each student and distribute them after graduation practice. Every senior will be presented with an Orange Envelope containing the collected messages as well as community letters and giveaways. The notes and cards will be kept confidential until graduation practice.

As we close out the school year, we will begin collecting textbooks and the students' tablets next month once testing is over.  Device collection with take place May 18th and 19th. Please see the enclosed document for more collection details. Flyer - Student Tablet Collection 2017.pdf 

Please note: our Super Spartans parent meeting scheduled for Tuesday 4/25 has been cancelled.

We are proud of our Spring sports programs that are making their way through district, regional and state championships.  This past week, all our teams starting district play advanced to the next round, with baseball starting this week.  Thursday all of our sports teams were successful, with our boys and girls' tennis teams defeating Clark Central, boys golf defeating Northview, and both boys and girls lacrosse vanquishing Riverwood! Watch out for our track teams, especially our Lady Spartans who are on their way to a 3-peet as state champions.  This past week they rocked in the region with these students making North Springs stand out.
