Literacy Night & Hispanic Month Celebration
Bear Creek closed out the celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month with Literacy Night. Students read the book Before We were Free by Julia Alvarez and participated in discussion groups with our grade-level administrators. Activities, good food, and music were enjoyed by all!
Meeting set for November 19 to review South Fulton attendance boundaries
A community meeting is set for November 19
to review enrollment trends in the South Fulton area and possibly make
adjustments to existing attendance boundaries. The meeting will be held
at Banneker High School,
located at 6015 Feldwood Road in College Park, from 7-9 p.m.
Schools impacted by the review only include those that were part of the
redistricting/school consolidation approved in 2013. The schools are
Conley Hills, Hapeville, Hamilton E. Holmes, Harriet Tubman, Mount
Olive, Oak Knoll and Parklane elementary schools;
Bear Creek, Camp Creek, McNair, Renaissance, Sandtown, Paul D. West and
Woodland middle schools; and Banneker, Creekside, Langston Hughes and
Westlake high schools.
Any proposed changes resulting from the meeting
will be presented to the Fulton County Board of Education in January
with a vote expected in February. Changes, if approved, would go into
effect next August.
