Hello Ken,

As we find ourselves in May, it is the ideal time to reflect back on the school year, both the challenges encountered and the milestones achieved. Whether our students are transitioning to a new school or just the next grade, they still need our whole ecosystem of support to help them on their way. I know you don't hear this enough (I am looking at you moms...) but thanks for all the work, seen and unseen, to get your kids through this year.

The goal of this newsletter is to keep you plugged into what is happening across District 3 and to be sure you are aware of key dates. And there is a lot going on...

  • Board Meeting: May 6, 2024 at 2:30 pm. Hear an update on family engagement, the current and proposed budget, the school calendar, as well as other key topics. See the complete agenda here.
  • It's testing season. If you would like a little more detail about the role and requirements of the various assessments our students take, check out this parent guide along with this testing calendar.
  • Excited to attend HS graduation this year? All graduations will be at the McCamish Pavilion at Georgia Tech. To view the entire commencement schedule, please visit the graduation website.
