    Our staff came out in full-attire for this Black History Spirit Week.

    From wearing their African Inspired Garb, to our Wednesday Blackout, and finishing off with an homage to their HBCUs, these staff members showed unity, purpose, and the responsibility to share culture, awareness, and history with our students.

    At the bottom of the page you'll see a gallery of all the doors decorated throughout the school, as well as a video version of the presentation given to our students. 

     

    GEORGIA HEALTH SURVEY

    Each year, the state of Georgia requires students to complete a Student Wellness Survey.

    The survey is offered at no cost and provides Georgia public school districts (and private schools that wish to participate) with a measurement system to satisfy all requirements under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.   

    The GSHS for middle and high school students covers various topics such as school climate and safety, graduation, school dropouts, alcohol and drug use, bullying and harassment, suicide, nutrition, and sedentary behaviors.

    All student survey data is anonymous and self-reported. 

    Survey results are available at the school, district and state levels.

    • Parents have the opportunity for their students to Opt-Out of the Student Wellness Survey (This form should be filled out only if you do NOT want them to participate).
    • In-person students will be given a copy of the Opt-Out Letter to be filled out and returned.
    • Attached you will find the Opt-Out Letter if your student misplaces the physical copy, or is a virtual student.
    • Please send the letter to your student's LAUNCH teacher

    OPT OUT LETTER

    CARTA DE EXCLUSIÓN VOLUNTARIA

    Parents also have the opportunity to look over the survey beforehand. A copy of the survey is available in the front office for any interested party.

    The survey will be completed on Monday, March 1st.
