My Students

Our school is a Pre-Kindergarten through fifth-grade​ elementary school located in Georgia.

Our mission as a school system is, "With a caring culture of trust and collaboration, every student will graduate ready for college and career."

Our school is an IB World School (International Baccalaureate) authorized to offer the Primary Years Program since August 2011.

Our school is a special place where you will always feel like a family. The majority of the students who attend our school are children of former students. It's always great to see familiar faces in the "beehive!"

Our students are goal setters for their community and continue to strive for excellence, growth, transformation, and leadership!

My Project

The correct lighting for my students will help them with their picture and video taping with formative and summative assessments. It will give them creative ways to display their work visually. Last year we receive cameras to get us started on our way, but we needed more equipment to enhance it. We have learned more about lighting, but lack the equipment to show our skills.

Many of our students are exploring careers in film, journalism and entertainment.

Social Media has many of them creating videos that help their classmates with schoolwork and other creative expressions. We hope our endeavors to express ourselves in multiple ways will be supported!
