NAPPS MEETING – NORTH ATLANTA HIGH SCHOOL STELLAR SENIORS

You are invited to come hear and see exactly what it looks like to be a North Atlanta senior as the North Atlanta cluster celebrates their successes and honors the ‘Stellar Seniors’ graduating from North Atlanta High School (NAHS). These students, each with their own personal journey through the cluster, will impress you with all they have been able to accomplish in their time at NAHS.

Meet in the NAHS Courtyard at 12pm on Wednesday, April 25th to hear from these students about their future ambitions. It is a powerful reminder of why we as parent leaders invest so much time and energy into our schools. High school may seem like a long way off, but you won’t regret making the time to attend this event. If you have any questions, please contact Jackson’s NAPPS representative, Meredith Middleton at meredithmiddleton@gmail.com

ONLINE PAYMENTS FOR FIELD TRIPS

This year, the PTA has again elected to enroll Jackson into the Atlanta Public Schools Online School Payments (OSP) portal. The OSP is provided to facilitate payment for school fees for a variety of products and services—including Field Trips and other pass through expenses. The system is currently offered to a select number of schools, including Jackson and Morris Brandon. We believe this system will be a convenience and benefit to parents, teachers and administrators. Instructions can be found HERE.
