Georgia Milestones

In our preparation for the Georgia Milestones assessment, 6th and 7th grade students will take the Secure Practice Test on March 7, 2019.  Please make sure that your student charges their surface every night, so they come to school with a fully charged device.  Any student with device issues should report the issue to their Wolfpack teacher and take their device to the Tech Den in the Media Center.  Please contact our testing coordinator, Lori Lahmann-Scullion or your grade level administrator if you have any questions.  Additional information is listed below.

Georgia Milestones for 8th Grade

The GA Milestones will be administered to 8th grade students each morning from April 15 through April 23.  Please make sure students are well rested, eat a healthy breakfast, and arrive to school on time each day.  Students will need to bring their fully charged tablet and their surface charger to school each day for testing. We are asking all parents to ensure that students power up their tablet at home each morning of testing and re-start it through the windows icon on the bottom left of the screen.  All updates come through the re-start process, so this action will make testing go smoother.  Students may familiarize themselves with the online testing format at http://gaexperienceonline.com/  This website was designed for students, parents, and teachers to experience the functionality of the online testing platform. In addition, test taking tips are available at the following website:https://www.testtakingtips.com/

The GA Milestones administration for 6th and 7th grades will occur May 6-10.  If you have any questions, please direct them to lahmannl@fultonschools.org or your grade level Assistant Principal.

2019 Georgia Science and Engineering Fair

Recently the Georgia Science and Engineering Fair took place on March 29-30, 2018 and River Trail's four competitors, Aesha Shah, Revin Jun, Zeenia Charania, and Heng Yang, received many of the competition's top honors. Aesha earned third honors in her category, and won the "NOAA-Taking the Pulse of the World Award." Heng received fourth honors in his category.  Zeenia received best in category, first honors, the UGA Women in Science Award, and a nomination for Broadcom Masters. Along with the best in category award, Revin earned first honors and a second nomination for Broadcom Masters.

All the River Trail participants did a wonderful job and should be congratulated.

Attention parents of 8 graders! Please mark your calendars for River Trail Middle School's 8 grade celebration dance. It will be held on May 17 from 7:00 pm-9:30 pm in the RTMS cafeteria. 


8th Grade Parent Tours of Northview High School
The Northview PTO is hosting school tours on Wednesday, Apr 17 at 9:30 am for all 8 grade parents who want to get a peek inside Northview HS.  This is particularly beneficial for parents of students who are a little nervous about rising up to high school.  When the parents understand the lay of the building, it's easy for them to qualm the nerves of their students who might be a little unsure of themselves.  The purpose of this event is to tour the building. Teachers and counselors will not be on hand to discuss course options. Come visit Northview, there's lots to see! 


Contact Information

Parents, as we approach the season where weather is unpredictable and may be cause for "early release" of students, please be sure all your contact information is up-to-date.  Please check the data in HAC, on the Registration page.  If you have any changes, contact the front office.
