LETTER from PRINCIPAL PERKINS
Dear Birney Families:
Welcome back Mighty Bobcats to school! We’re excited to have you with us for another fantastic year. I wanted to post a welcome back letter to our website to include some news and notes related to things that have taken place over the summer as well as some important reminders and upcoming dates to mark on your calendars... please see below.
During the 2018-2019 school year, we experienced a facelift, both on the inside and outside of the facility courtesy of Cumberland Church. Our school looks fresh and clean and we’re enjoying the finished product.
In July, we conducted a weeklong Kindergarten camp for our students and it was extremely successful. In fact, some of our students had so much fun that they became quite sad that the camp had to come to an end.
Several members of our staff, along with our Master Gardeners group have been working hard in our garden and it looks awesome. They have also given our marquee a much needed cleansing. The garden club is also pursuing a grant which will hopefully allow them to expand our garden and put in some more raised beds... lets all keep our fingers crossed in hopes of receiving the grant money.
We also have a new PTA Executive Board, and the members have been planning feverishly for some memorable meetings and activity nights throughout the year. Our PTA welcomed our teachers back from their summer break with a catered Pasta Bella lunch…a great way to ease the teachers back to work with a tasty meal. ☺
As we start back into the school year, please be sure to consider joining our PTA by purchasing a membership as all of the proceeds from new memberships directly benefit all of our students! You can contact our PTA group by sending an email to our PTA Co-President, Jennifer, at BirneyPTA@yahoo.com or purchasing online through We Pay.
Parents, during the first week of school, your child will be receiving what we refer to as a “First Day Folder,” please be sure to go through the folder carefully, and sign/return the appropriate forms to your child’s homeroom teacher.
I hope all of our Birney families have had a safe, fun, and relaxing summer with lots of good times. We can’t wait to see our beautiful student faces again, smiling and eager to learn. If you have questions and are in need of important information, please do not hesitate to call us at 678-842-6824 or visit our school website. We will be registering new students as the year starts up from 8:00-10:00 AM each school day. See you all very soon, and GO BOBCATS!!!
*Just some dates to get your family calendar started, much more event information to come!
