Congratulations to our newly elected SGC Members

Marnie Allen - Parent

I truly care about the future direction of EPMS, and I want to support our school community and leaders by being on the SGC. This position will allow me to put my leadership skills, energy, and dedication to work. I have four daughters ages 20, 18, 16, and 12. My older daughters graduated from Elkins so I have been a part of this school community for a long time. I have a vested interest in the success of the students here as I know what it takes to be successful in high school and college. I have been a stay-at-home mom for 20 years, and I have held many leadership positions. I served on the PTO at Sweet Apple as the chairperson for the fundraising campaign, and then later as the Vice President of Fundraising and Membership. I was a room parent, in charge of Fifth Grade Finale Week events, served on the Employee of the Year Committee, was on the Local School Advisory Committee, and chaired Grandparents' Day for 3 years. At Elkins, I served as Secretary on the PTSA, have chaired the 8th Grade Dance Committee, helped plan the 6th Grade Dance, served on the Teacher of the Year Committee, helped at International Night and with Honor Roll Breakfasts. I have been a huge supporter and proponent of Elkins Pointe and will continue to be. I believe that my experience at Elkins and Roswell and Milton High Schools make me well suited to provide input to the SGC and help develop strategic plans that continue to put the success and the needs of each of our students above all else.

Monique Erskine - Teacher

I have been an educator for 13 years. I have experience with all sub-groups of students including special education, ESOL and Gifted. I am certified in mathematics grades 4-12 with a Masters in Secondary Education and Ed.S in Instructional Technology. I pride myself on being able to steer my students in the direction of being better mathematicians. However, I am looking for avenues where I can make a greater impact on all students and not just the ones I teach. I believe SGC is a great opportunity for that. Having taught in three school districts, I have experienced what makes a school great. I think I would have a lot to add to aid in making Elkins even better. I believe in the vision of the school where students are happy, smart, connected but do believe that does not look the same for every student, as their needs are different. I would like to work with the team to ensure that sub-groups and individual students receive what they need every day that they walk into the doors of Elkins Pointe.

Elkins Pointe RFF Renewal Application for 2018-2019 

Request for Flexibility Waiver
To further develop students' critical thinking skills and academic achievement, the Council requested a waiver to increase the amount of time to provide remedial interventions, extensions, and enrichment for all students.  This concept of this RFF is called Flexible Seat Time for Personalized Learning.

Although the SGC does not plan on using it this RFF until the 2019-2020 school year, the council is renewing this for the period of 2020-2022.  Once approved, the RFF may be implemented as part of it the school schedule in the future. We are asking for feedback for the Elkins Pointe MS RFF Proposal.  Thank you.
