Happy New Year! I hope that everyone had a restful and enjoyable break while spending time with family and friends. Each year our Christmas break provides us with the opportunity to pause, become refreshed, and think about the many wonderful people around us! I look forward to welcoming back our students and faculties with smiling faces and eagerness to start this new semester.
Our Polk School District family has had a great start to the 2017-2018 school year and will continue with our commitment to the success of our students. The coming months promise to be exciting as we begin the second semester. Some activities will include registering eighth graders and high school students for their 2018-2019 courses, registering new kindergarten and preschool students for the upcoming school year, preparing for the Georgia Milestones Assessment Program, and getting ready for promotion and graduation ceremonies!
All of this represents new beginnings and opportunities for our students to achieve and grow. I look forward to our continued success in the new year, and together, we are all making a difference in the education and lives of the students in Polk School District. Welcome back!
