On Mondays from 11:30- 2:00 the library at BCPS will be open for business! Kids can come and check out books on their reading level, and we may have a few surprises! Please consider helping your child maintain their reading skills, or just get a few good books to share on rainy days!
Last year Mrs. Brooks' class and Mrs. Thomas' kids made short films for the Athens Ripple Effect video contest. We wanted to show off our videos! After a full year delay, the videos will be judged on March 20.

For Families Who Have Opted for Virtual Learning Fall Semester
As you prepare to begin August 19, please feel free to visit the following website for some guidance and tips to help families successfully implement virtual learning.
We are working with Edgenuity to have students enrolled and ready to begin virtual learning on August 19. An email will be sent out with teacher contact information, as well as login URL and directions. Please know this is new to our district. As we continue to work to provide this alternative mode of instruction, we recognize this will be a learning process for all of us. We may experience glitches along the way. Please be patient as we navigate this process and work to make it the best it can be for our students.
BCPS is accepting nominations for two parent representatives to the school governance council. The council meets monthly to discuss and work together to meet the goals of the school improvement plan and to discuss important decisions about our school. Please send any nominations to Nancy Cochran.
Welcome back 2020-2021 Leopard family! We are pleased to announce that BCPS will be offering in person Open House options for all new kindergarten students. In order to keep numbers in the building low, we respectfully request that only the parents and/or guardians of the kindergarten student, along with the new kindergartner, attend. Below you will find your designated times. You may choose option (A) or option (B).
For our upcoming 1st and 2nd grade students, you and your child will have the opportunity to participate in a virtual Open House through Google Meet or by appointment only on August 17th. Your child’s teacher will be communicating with you about how to connect to the virtual meeting or to schedule a face-to-face appointment if needed. These options will allow students to meet their teacher and see who their classmates will be.
We understand the first day of school is always an exciting time, but can also be a time when students are nervous about returning to school. As part of our safety protocols, we respectfully request only kindergarten parents walk them to class on the first day of school. We would like to assure you, we will be assisting ALL students with finding their way to their new classroom. We are excited about the upcoming school year and we are looking forward to having students back in our classrooms!
Banks County School System is pleased to announce the launch of our online registration portal for new students. The new system will help streamline the registration process for new students and reduce the amount of paperwork needed.
