Dear Parents,

It is hard to believe that we have 7 days of school left.  Please refer to the final exam schedule to know when each exam takes place.  The last 4 days of school are early release days, and students will arrive home early.  A reminder that North Springs policy is that exams are not given early, before the assigned date for exams.  Final Exam Schedule Spring 2018.pdf 

AP Exam Schedules continues through this week.

Follow this link to all the exam schedules.   http://school.fultonschools.org/hs/northsprings/Pages/2014-15-Testing-Calendar.aspx

Each Scholar recipient will receive a seal for his or her diploma.
