- Thursday, November 20, 6:30 pm at Bolton  Academy.  Prospective Parent Open House for Bolton Academy.  Please invite friends and neighbors to hear from current Bolton Academy teachers, parents, and recent Bolton Academy graduates about their experiences at Bolton Academy. Understanding and supporting Bolton makes our schools and communities that much stronger!

- Friday, November 21, 8:00 am – 10:30 am.  Parent Observation Day  ***The Georgia Department of Education wants to reach out to parents and allow the parents to observe classroom learning in the back of the room for a day per year.  Parents of children who attend Title I schools shall have access to school staff, opportunities to participate in the child's class, and to observe classroom activities. (20 U.S.C. § 6318). This involved parent observation and training from 8:00am - 9:00 am. Starting at 9:00am, these volunteers sit quietly and observe in assigned classrooms (please, parents/adults only). The observation period ends at 10:00 am, with volunteers being dismissed shortly after; please contact Ms. Burch more for more information.
