Vendors/Exhibitors Wanted For Homecoming Game

GSD's Homecoming is fast approaching, and we are offering an opportunity for vendors and exhibitors to participate! This day — Sept. 20 — is not just a football game. It's a time for community to come together. Many GSD families as well as alumni attend the game plus related events over the weekend. This would be an excellent opportunity to share information about your organization with the Deaf community.

This year, spaces for vendors are being offered FREE of charge. The game begins at 2 p.m., but set up for vendors at Van Cott Stadium in Cave Spring is 1 p.m. More details are explained in the attached letter! If you would like to participate, please complete this form and submit it to Katherine Kennedy at kakennedy@doe.k12.ga.us or 706-777-2241 (fax) by Wednesday, Sept. 17, 2014.


The Weekly Wrap Is Back! 
Every week, GSD produces a newsletter that goes home with students! In each edition, you will find upcoming events, resources and important school-related information. Check it out online as well! 
Find a list of community events that will take place Sept. 19-21, 2014, here.
Correction to paper newsletter: Middle school girls should wear BLUE on Wednesday. The electronic copy of the newsletter is correct. 

If you have questions about the content of the newsletter, contact Katherine Kennedy at 912-486-0923 or kakennedy@doe.k12.ga.us.

Regional Parent Meetings For Our Families!

Regional Parent Meetings (RPMs) are gatherings for parents of students from AASD, GAB and GSD, held around the state that are easily accessible to the majority of our parents.

RPMs will take place in two different sessions — fall and spring — with at least 10 meetings in each session.

They are times to teach, inform, support, listen to, connect with, and provide resources for our State School parents.

Our Parent Engagement Team – Kathy Kennedy, Parent Involvement Coordinator for GSD; Patti Lombardi, Parent Mentor for the State Schools; and Sonya Milam, Parent Involvement Coordinator for GAB – will host the RPMs.  At least two members of this team will facilitate each meeting.
