Fulton County Schools Launches Enrollment Online!!!

 

Fulton County Schools is making it easier for parents of new students to complete their child's registration for enrollment into a Fulton County School. Parents can access the easy-to-complete, online form here. This option allows parents to control the data supplied for their student's enrollment and provide for more timely processing of the enrollment request. Parents can upload copies of the required supporting documents in .pdf, jpeg, and .tif formats. A list of required documents can be found here.

 

While this registration process will make it easier, parents will still need to bring their original to the school prior to the start of school. School personnel, must verify the authenticity of the documentation prior to enrollment being completed.

 

We hope you find this new tool helpful and welcome your feedback as we continue our efforts to provide efficiency and flexibility. Please click here to tell us what you think.

Dear Westlake Family,

We have EOC standardized testing beginning next week- April 27- May 8th.  The testing calendar below includes Advanced Placement (AP) exams and final exams to keep you in the loop. Just a few reminders about testing:

Please make sure your child arrives on time for testing.  We would prefer that all students arrive between 8:00-8:10am because testing begins promptly at 8:20am.  Additionally, students will have to find their testing locations first thing in the morning, which will be communicated by their teachers, but also posted throughout the building.

Parent Tips to Help Prepare Your Student for Standardized Testing

The night before:

  • Help your child get to bed on time. Research shows that being well-rested helps students do better.
  • Keep your routine as normal as possible. Upsetting natural routines may make children feel insecure.
  • Mention the test to show you're interested, but don't dwell on it.
  • Plan ahead to avoid conflicts on the morning of the test.

 

The morning of the test:

  • Get up early to avoid rushing. Be sure to have your child at school on time.
  • Have your child eat a good breakfast but not a heavy one. Research shows that students do better if they have breakfast before they take tests.
  • Be positive about the test. Acknowledge that tests can be hard and that they're designed so that no one will know all of the answers (The creators of the EOC actually have items on there that they will be field testing that students would not necessarily know). Explain that doing your best is what counts. The important thing is to make your child comfortable and confident about the test.

 

After the test:

  • Talk to your child about his or her feelings about the test, making sure you acknowledge the effort such a task requires.
  • Discuss what was easy and what was hard; discuss what your child learned from the test.
  • Discuss what changes your child would make if he or she were to retake the test.
  • Explain that performance on a test is not a condition for you to love your child. You love your child just for the person he or she is J.

Free SAT Prep

Just imagine how much our overall student population could improve if we took advantage of the free resources on the Applerouth site- http://www.applerouth.com/westlake. The online resources have a $99 retail value, but is absolutely free for our 10th-12th grade students. 9th grade student pay a nominal $25 Fee for a yearly subscription. Why spent thousands of dollars for college, when there are resources like this that can put our students in a situation where colleges are paying our students to attend their institutions? It's already happening at Westlake. Please visit the Applerouth site for this free information, all you need is your child's Student ID. If you have any questions is the process, please do not hesitate to contact Applerouth at info@applerouth.com or 404-728-0661.
