Dear Students and Parents,
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year at Elbert County Middle School! Our commitment is to provide a safe and academically rigorous environment that will prepare every student, every day to be a productive citizen. We are proud of the accomplishments of our students, but our desire is that each year they set and attain new goals that move them toward reaching their fullest potential.
Two way communication is essential to the success of each student. This year we are excited to introduce Academic Parent-Teacher Teams. We will have three small group meetings during the year. You will get a chance to learn about your child’s academic progress and how you can help your child meet his or her learning goals. In addition to APT Teams, we hope you find our website useful, and we encourage everyone to connect to Infinite Campus and check it regularly. We also have a Facebook, Twitter and Remind to help us stay connected to our families.
This is my 27th year in education and my first year as a principal. I am married to Coach Stacy Drake and we have four daughters who grew up in the Elbert County School System. I have spent my entire career in Elbert County, and I love our people and our community. I have benefitted by working under several strong leaders in Elbert County and the lessons I have learned are invaluable as I serve our students.
In conclusion, I wish you all a wonderful school year. If you ever have questions or concerns, you are welcome to contact me. I can be reached at 706-213-4200 or firstname.lastname@example.org. I am honored to serve as your principal.
