Brandon BEEs, you did it!!! We have surpassed our $200,000 goal, raising almost $234,000!!!
We are overwhelmed and so grateful for your incredible support for our school. An impressive 60% of all BEE families have donated! An amazing 79% of teachers and staff have donated.
WE THANK YOU, BEEs, for an amazing campaign this fall. If you have not had a chance to donate, there is still time – we happily accept donations through June 30, 2022. And we would love to award those Kona Ice parties!
TOURS – Spread the word to any future SMS Cougars: we would like to invite prospective parents of current 5th graders to visit our Powers Ferry Road campus (4360 Powers Ferry Road) and tour the 6th grade campus. Sutton will hold one tour per month, between September and April. Attendance is limited to 25 people total: adults only and one person per family/household due to COVID restrictions. Two Spanish language tours will also be offered: One in October and one in March. Please see the Sign Up Genius link for more details and times to sign up. We look forward to having you!
DLI STUDENTS – If you are a 4th or 5th grade DLI parent and want to learn more about Sutton’s programming, be sure to attend our in-person informational meeting, hosted by Sutton Principal Gail Johnson, on Thursday October 21 at 5:30pm in our Main Campus gymnasium. Looking for a virtual option? Sutton will host a parent information session for current and potential DLI parents on October 19 at 6:00pm. Click HERE for more information (Spanish HERE).
The parent referral window for gifted testing closes on October 29. If your child was not assessed for first look gifted eligibility last school year, you may refer your child for consideration of gifted eligibility assessments this school year. Students referred by a parent must also meet the additional criterion of a score at the 80th percentile or higher on the district-administered MAP Growth test in either Reading or Math. Please access the parent referral form HERE and submit one form for each child.
Please consider being a part of the APS and Morris Brandon comprehensive testing strategy by participating in weekly surveillance testing. Last year we tested close to 400 students and staff a week, allowing us to get ahead of any outbreaks at school. This year the permission form has been made available online here. Please complete a new permission form if you would like your child to be tested during the 2021-2022 school year.
5th Grade Parents: You have less than one month left to create and purchase your child’s yearbook recognition ad. You can get started here! The deadline to purchase is Monday, November 8, 2021.
