Hear ye, hear ye!  Come one, come all to the first ever Johns Creek Shakespeare Festival!  The event, held on March 22, at 7 PM in The Hanger/On the Bricks at Perimeter Church, will feature student performances from famous scenes of Shakespeare’s plays.  Each of the Johns Creek high schools (Chattahoochee, Johns Creek, and Northview) will be featured and the evening will open with an appearance by the Bard himself. A dessert reception at 8:30 hosted by the production’s sponsors: Beyond the Applause, Actorboy Production, and The Etiquette School, will conclude the evening. The event will be open to the public and tickets can be purchased at the door for just $3.  Developed by the English and Drama departments of the area high schools, along with the support of the Johns Creek Chamber of Commerce, the event will benefit Habitat Aid Initiative.  This local charity supports sustainable projects in western Kenya, and our event will help fund a library and computer lab for the Ekambuli Secondary School in Musalaba (Kwishero), Western Province, Kenya. 

Relay for Life Johns Creek on April 16th, 2010, at Johns Creek High School!
Support Northview High School’s teams! 
Northview High School is committed to raising money for cancer research!  
How does Northview plan to raise money?
   · For starters, teachers have donated hundreds of dollars to wear jeans this week. 
   · Students will purchase the allowance to wear a hat on one day.
   · Case sales of Coca Cola drinks for all to purchase (see below)
All for the cause of cancer research!
For more information please go to and donate today.
How can you remember a loved one through an inspiring Luminaria celebration? 
A luminary is a small candle placed in a white bag. The bags are labeled with the name of a person who is fighting cancer, in honor of a caregiver, or in memory of someone who has lost their battle.  Many are labeled simply with the word HOPE—it is entirely up to the person who purchases the luminary.
Later in the evening the candles are lit and there is a procession around the track in honor of those people. The $10 spent on the luminary goes to the total raised for the event and can be directed towards a team total.  For instance, if a student from Autrey Mill MS  wanted to purchase a luminary, he/she could purchase it on-line or by submitting a check or cash and designate those funds go towards a specific team.  (Last year, the teams from Abbotts Hill and Taylor Road did almost all their fundraising via luminaria sales.) This is a great way for students to become involved and support their school teams—particularly for students who may not be able to participate directly.

Have you had cancer and have overcome it? Join the walk for the first lap of the relay!

Your Opinion is Important to Us!

The Fulton County School System invites you to spend a few minutes giving your input during its annual Parent Perception Survey. The survey runs from March 1 through April 2, and the answers you provide will be used for school improvement planning.
A perception survey measures how you feel about different aspects of your child’s overall education in Fulton County, rather than gathering information about individual teachers or your school’s performance.  Please be assured that your identity and that of your child cannot and will not be shared with any school official.
The survey will be available online at If you prefer to fill out a paper survey, copies will be available in the front office.  Surveys in Spanish, Portuguese, Korean, and Chinese are also available at the school. Your answers will be combined with those of other parents and shared with teachers and the principal for school improvement planning.  Your identity and that of your child will remain confidential. 
If you have questions about the survey, please call the Assessment and Accountability Division at 404-763-4598. Thank you for your feedback.
