It’s July, which means school begins in just a few weeks for Fulton County residents.
Parents are making sure their kids have supplies and fresh clothes, and are checking to see if school bus routes have changed.
For Fulton County Schools, there are changes in leadership at 12 of its institutions. Letters home from the principals at these dozen schools will be signed by a new name in the 2017-2018 academic year.
Here are the new leaders in the principal’s office:
Conley Hills Elementary School: Jami Pettway
Hapeville Elementary School: Thomas Garrett
Ocee Elementary School: Ryan Moore
Medlock Bridge Elementary School: Matthew Vance
New Prospect Elementary School: Amy Booms-Lemons
Creek View Elementary School: Monica In
S.L. Lewis Elementary School: Ethel Lett
Campbell Elementary School: Leah Mackey
Paul D. West Middle School: Darrell Stephens
Webb Bridge Middle School: Rebecca Perkins
Riverwood High School: Charles Gardner
Roswell High School: Robert Shaw
Campbell Elementary: Leah Mackey
While there are several changes in principals, Fulton County isn’t opening many new schools this year. It is, however, opening a replacement facility for C.H. Gullatt Elementary School in Union City.
The school, designed by Collins Cooper Carusi Architects, is organized with kindergarten through fifth grade classrooms in two academic wings, and also includes a media center, gym, cafeteria and an administration suite. The school opens in time for classes next month.
The county’s other large construction project at a school this year is a major addition to Riverwood International Charter School. Construction will be complete soon and students will be able to occupy it this August. The addition provides 30 additional classrooms and is phase one of a multi-phase school replacement project.
