Donelson School News – July 2017
Congratulations to McGavock Elementary School’s Lee Farrar, who was named Elementary Librarian of the Year.
It was great to join members of the McGavock Cluster Coalition and Donelson-Hermitage Chamber in congratulating McGavock High School students on their last day. The First Day and Last Day celebrations are a great way for the community to show their support for our students.
If you need to enroll your child in school, you’re still able to do so. For the first year ever, MNPS is opening two MNPS Enrollment Centers on Saturdays in July from 8am – noon. You can enroll, withdraw or transfer your child. English Learner assessments will also be available at both locations. See details on dates and locations below. To determine what documents to bring, check out the list here. If you can’t make it to one of these two locations on a Saturday visit one of 11 enrollment centers during regular hours (7 a.m. – 3:30 p.m., weekdays).
I thoroughly enjoyed a tour and lunch with the staff of Arts Institute of Tennessee – Nashville. The lunch was made by students who are working to learn how to manage a commercial kitchen and restaurant. The educational offerings at the school are vast and truly support our hospitality, entertainment and related other industries. They do an excellent job at job placement as well.
