Maggie’s Moment

If you folded a piece of paper 42 times, it would be thick enough to reach the moon.

Core Values



Lizzie Walker, President of the Drama Club, provided a special valentine treat for each Drama Club member.   

The Home Learner Service Group- joined by a few campus learners- are currently working on a fabric “Thank You!” banner in appreciation for the staff at St. Mary’s Hospital.  Participants include Neela Sudhagar (freshman), Taylor Ray-Bush (Sophomore), Wyatt Sears (Junior), Harper Purcell (Junior), James Purcell (Senior), Mae Kline (Junior), Anan Shen (Senior), Ms. T (Group Sponsor and “Senior” in another sense), Lizzy Walker (Senior) and Mary Goggin (Senior).
The fabric banner will be assembled and delivered to St. Mary’s Hospital upon completion of each brightly colored piece. The attached picture is Lizzie Walker with her brightly colored piece of the fabric “Thank you” banner.

An exciting morning in the Humanities Department today… Some of the senior AP Government students will be participating in a virtual conversation with Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett and Dean of the UGA Law School Peter B. Rutledge.  They will learn more about the role, procedure, and logic of the U.S. Supreme Court, and hear first-hand insights into this important institution in our federal government.  A very special opportunity

February is Black History Month. The month honors African American people’s rich range of experiences, struggles and achievements throughout history and into the modern day. Each day in February, we will be sharing a couple of quotes from civil rights icons.

“If you’re not making someone else’s life better, than you are wasting your time. Your life will become better by making other people’s lives better.”

 – Will Smith

“He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.”

 —Muhammad Ali

Don’t forget you must sign in and out even if you have parent permission to leave! You will serve detention if you forget. We need to know if you are on campus. Thank you!!!

If you need the links to the at-home or return request forms, please email Ms. Rorey: Remember that you should expect to wait 24 hours before you are approved by the school. Therefore, do not submit the request late in the evening or early in the morning and assume that you will immediately have permission to attend online or return to school. Thank you!


Please help us stay healthy so we can continue to be together!


Thank you so much for being diligent about wearing your masks! A few of you are still having trouble and for clarification, here is the process for you:
1. A faculty member will give you a warning.
2. After the warning, that faculty member will infract you and you will serve detention. This will be communicated to your parents as well.
3. After you serve detention, if another infraction occurs, you, your advisor, and your parents will meet with Mrs. Zalac and there will be escalated consequences.

Clubs meet Wednesdays 9:15-9:45! Look out for an email from your club leaders!
