Calendar

Below please find a draft calendar for the 2020- 2021 school year.  You may notice that we are open 190 days for the August 2020 – May 2021 school year.  Cobb County schools have 178 days scheduled during this same time.

To accommodate the needs of our working parents, we’ve added 12 more days to the schedule in the form of ‘Discovery Days’ (highlighted in Orange on the calendar).  We’ll use these extra Discovery Days to celebrate and recognize historical and cultural events, or just have fun activities.  Discovery Days do not count for children in Elementary School towards the 178-day attendance requirement.

Discovery Days may get moved around between now and when we start, but here are a few examples of what you can expect:

  • October 9th: Hispanic Heritage Performance
  • October 30th: Halloween/ Día de los Muertos
  • November 11th: Veterans Day
  • November 24th: Thanksgiving Meal
  • December 22nd: Holiday Performance and Meal
  • February 2nd: Le Chandeleur Celebration (Crêpes included, Miam Miam!)
  • February 12th: Chinese New Year Performance
  • February 26th: Black History Month Celebration
