BLUE RIDGE, GA – On Saturday, August 3, Mayor Donna Whitener hosted a back to school pool party for the community at the Blue Ridge City Pool. Whitener invited families to an evening of fun, and the response was tremendous as an estimated 150 families attended.
Having been a single mother of three, Whitener says she understands the struggles that parents face when caring for a child. She wanted to provide families with essential back to school supplies and offer parents a stress free evening.
Families enjoyed swimming, and were treated to pizza and ice cream. Guests were also welcome to take home complimentary bags filled with school supplies. These care packages included age appropriate necessities for children starting kindergarten through young adults entering their final year of high school.
The pool and adjoining park were full of smiles as families welcomed the beginning of a new school year.
Fannin County High School Open House Information:
Schools in Fannin County will open on Friday, August 4. Prior to this start date, Fannin County High School (FCHS) will hold two Open House Sessions. The Upperclassmen Open House for 10th – 12th graders will follow the usual format on Thursday, August 3, from 1 to 5 p.m. There will be a special Open House for incoming 9th Graders on Wednesday evening, August 2, from 5 to 7 p.m. All 9th graders and parents are invited and encouraged to participate in this unique and customized opportunity.
For the Ninth Grade Open House on Wednesday, August 2, students and parents are asked to report to the FCHS PAC at 4:45to receive their fall class schedules from their homeroom teachers. Students and parents will then participate in a “mock day” by attending each class for approximately 20 minutes. Teachers will provide students with a syllabus and expectations for their class.
This 9th Grade Open House will provide our freshmen and their parents the opportunity to learn their way around the school and meet teachers on a more personal basis. If a 9th grader is unable to attend on Tuesday evening, they, of course, can attend the Upperclassmen Open House on Thursday, August 3, from 1 to 5 p.m. However, students will not participate in a “mock day” schedule on Thursday.
For additional information, please contact the school.
