Hello, Titan Community!
First of all, I would like to thank you for taking the time to learn more about Elkins Pointe Middle School by reading this letter and viewing our website. We have so many great things happening at Elkins Pointe Middle School, and our website is a critical link between home and school. Be sure to continue exploring our website throughout the year for updates and celebrations.
Elkins Pointe Middle School has been open for twelve years now, with our doors opening in 2001. Personally, I was a teacher here at the time. It was a joyful, exciting opening. We were representative of an increasingly global community and excited about the opportunities that diversity would afford our students and the community. Eleven years later, I am pleased to say the same.
For the 2013-2014 school year, we are projected to have just over 1,100 students. We are a Title I School, which means that more than 40% of our students are receiving free or reduced lunches. This allows our school to receive additional financial support that benefits all students in ways such as technology, after school programs, and classroom resources. During the 2011-2012 school year, The Single Statewide Accountability System (SSAS) honored us with the Platinum Award for Greatest Gains. We also are proud of our Title I Distinguished School status, earned through continuous improvement over the course of several years.
With a teaching staff of over 80 teachers, we strive to provide an individualized education to students. We offer Accelerated Mathematics Courses and Gifted Courses in addition to serving students in ESOL, Special Education, and grade level coursework. Our Music Program is award winning, taking home honors in every competition that they enter. Our World Language program performs well in the community, including nationally ranked results for our French Program. I could go on and on about our achievements, but you will learn more about those with time.
If you’d like to learn more about me and the work we are doing at Elkins Pointe Middle School, you can also listen to an excerpt from my recent interview with The Association of Middle Level Education at http://school.fultonschools.org/ms/elkinspointe/Pages/springmaninterview.aspx.
Every day we are empowering students for tomorrow’s global society. If you are part of this community, or plan to be, we know that you will be proud to be a Titan, just as we are.
