Principal's Parent Update
November 13, 2017
Friday Release Day
A reminder that this Friday, 11/17 is a full release day for students. This is a student holiday and a teacher workday.
Progress Reports were sent home with students on Thursday, 11/9. If your student did not receive their's please check HAC or your child's guidance counselor. With 5 weeks of school until the end of the semester, there is still time to bring those grades up before the winter holidays.
School Dress Code
A reminder for all parents and students that with the weather turning cooler, and students dressing to stay warm, the Fulton County and North Springs Dress Code policies are still in effect. Students are not allowed to wear hats, bandannas, or other non-religious headwear in the building. This also included hoodies. Students will be asked to remove them when entering the building.
Bus Transportation Manager
Message from Amanda Thomas, Transportation Supervisor for the North Springs cluster.
I want to extend an apology to you all for the late buses and let you know, we are working diligently towards a suitable solution. Until then, please continue to be patient with us. If you have not been receiving notifications, but need to, please send the following information to ThomasAJ@fultoschools.org:
Name, Bus Number, and method of contact (email or phone number to receive text messages).
Lastly, if you know someone with a great driving record in need of employment, please refer them to fultonschools.org/careers and tell them to apply for the School Bus Driver Position.
Science Fair Judges
North Springs Charter High School is proud to announce our Annual Science Fair which will take place on Thursday, December 7, 2017. We are requesting support from parents and community professionals to volunteer their time to help judge the science fair projects. We are in need of 50 judges from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. So that judges will not have to stay the entire day, the judging times will be split into (2) sessions (Sessions A and B). This will allow us to have at least 25 judges per session, whom of which will select specific categories to judge as prompted on sign up link below. Parents and community professionals will not be able to judge specific categories, in which their own student has a project (if applicable).
If you are interested in volunteering, please use the link below to complete the form and submit by Friday, November 10th.
Thank you for donating your time to better educate our scientists of the future.

The Spartan football team made it to the playoffs for the 2nd year in a row, playing Arabian Mountain this past Friday. The team fought hard and looked good in the 2nd half, but came up short 35-21. It was a great season under 1st year Coach Parker, and we look forward to spring ball and next season's campaign. Go Spartans!
