Back to School Monday!

Grady High School will be the site this week of an APS Community Listening Session to offer ideas on how to enhance school culture, climate, safety and student transportation.

Class is back in session Monday as students and educators for Atlanta Public Schools (APS) return to the classroom today following the Christmas holiday break.

Midtown and area parents and teachers, we want to know how your children and students are doing! Send School Good News to Midtown Patch at midtown@patch.com.

Beginning this week, APS invites all stakeholders to participate in one of four Community Listening Sessions to offer ideas on how to enhance school culture, climate, safety and student transportation.

Grady High School will host one such session on Wednesday, Jan. 9, from 6 - 8 p.m. Make plans to attend to express your concerns and to share your thoughts and suggestions to make local schools safer and more secure. 

Other area sessions include:

  • Tuesday, January 8, 2013, 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. at Therrell High School, 3099 Panther Trail, SW, Atlanta, Georgia 30311; (404) 802‐5300
  • Tuesday, January 15, 2013, 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. at Carver High School, 55 McDonough Blvd., SE, Atlanta, Georgia 30315; (404) 802‐4410
  • Wednesday, January 16, 2013, 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. at Bolton Academy, 2268 Adams Dr., NW, Atlanta, GA 30318; (404) 802-8350


It’s that time of year to form the Grady Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) Nominating Committee for next year. It’s a short term commitment, but is a key role, as this committee proposes the PTSA slate of officers for next year. All current PTSA members are asked to consider volunteering for this important committee.

Nominating forms can be found here or in the main office at the school. Forms are due Monday, Jan. 7 and should be turned in at the office or emailed to Gigi Schwartz at jesgigi@comcast.net.

The Grady PTSA will be electing the Nominating Committee at its Jan. 8 PTSA General Meeting at 6 p.m. in the GHS theater, so please plan to attend this important meeting.
