‘Shout Out’ to our great students, teachers and schools

There are a lot of GREAT things happening in our district. Each month I will give “shout outs” to students, staff and volunteers who are helping us with our mission to have every APS student graduate ready for college and career.

Let’s give a shout out to:

The 107 students at North Atlanta High School who earned Microsoft Office Specialist Certifications. Thirty-six students earned two or more certifications and Aliaksandra Khrypkova earned three certifications ­ Word, Excel and PowerPoint.  These are fantastic skills that will help ensure you are college and career ready. Congratulations!

The Maynard Jackson Lady Jaguar Track team for receiving $4,000 worth of free track and field shoes through a partnership with Big Peach running company.  What a great gift for these dynamic scholar-athletes.

South Atlanta High School for being one of 11 sites chosen nationwide to host an hour of code workshop. Media specialist Shanna Miles spearheaded the partnership with Best Buy as a part of Teen Tech Week. What a great way to introduce students to careers in STEM!

Grady High School principal Tim Guiney for being recognized as a 2015 AP Honor School by the Georgia Department of Education.
