Weekly Update 11/10/19
Highlights from the week:
We had a busy day at Lead Academy this week starting with 6th Grade Celebration of Learning on Tuesday night. Students presented their work on natural disasters and how to prepare for the unexpected. Students did a great job explaining all they've been learning.
On Friday, 3rd graders hosted a writing celebration to present their Pourquoi Tales (a narrative that explains the question of "Why?"). Parents enjoyed coffee, pastries while reading students' writing and asking questions about the process.
Also on Friday, we kicked the day off with Friday circle with our Falcons Cheer Squad performing. It was also Fun Friday with this week's theme being The Amazing Race. Students competed across campus and Conestee Park to solve clues and race to the finish line.

School Fees and Balances
As a charter school, we operate off a very tight budget and every dollar counts. We maximize every dollar to have direct impact on students. With that said, it is very important that all school fees and lunch balances are taken care of in a timely fashion. Notices are sent home frequently as a reminder. Currently, any student with a negative balance of more than $50 will have all money turned into the front office (field trips, events, and other fees) applied directly to that debt first per board policy. Our board is also working on an updated debt policy which will be published in October. Anytime you need assistance or a payment plan, please reach out to us and we will work something out. If you have questions, please let us know.
Updates from the Health Room
The Nurses Office will NO longer be stocking Tylenol, Ibuprofen or Tums. If your student needs to receive these medications, you will have to have to fill out a form to have the medication available for them. Forms are available in the Nurse's office. Once the form is filled out, parents must bring the medication in the original box, and the form to the nurses office. Students are NOT allowed to bring them in.
Nut Free School!
Just a reminder, we are a nut free campus. To read more about our policy, click here.
