 From Dr. C...       Welcome to Tiger Town! 

I love my shirt principal Simon!

I’ve been impressed by the leadership of Dione Simon since meeting her when she was principal of C. S. King Middle School, so I knew she would have creative ideas for Towns Elementary. She really loves this school.

She and her leadership team spent a great deal of time this summer re-branding the school as “Tiger Town” and embedding activities within the name that uplifts students and allows their voices to be heard. Every child was wearing a name tag today that encouraged others to have a conversation with them.

The students did a great job signing the Tiger Town Chant.

I spent a little time in Ms. Oden’s 4th grade classroom where students were getting to know one another, then, my attention was drawn down the hall where students were singing the Tiger Chant in Dr. Datcher’s room, which reinforces the school’s values.


Next we stopped in Ms. Brownlee’s pre-k class where our youngest learners had the opportunity to introduce themselves through song and dance with their “Good Morning” song.

Great way to keep younger kids busy while parents register big kids for school.

Principal Simon has created opportunities to read all over the building, and encourages literacy education in all subject areas. There is so much good happening here – from the moment you call the school and are greeted with “Welcome to Tiger Town” to the great big hug principal Simon will surely give you when you leave – Tiger Town is definitely the place to be.

Thanks for the great tour Towns and have an awesome school year.

  • Parents’ Right To Know

    Dear APS Parents and Guardians:

    All schools are required by federal law under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965(ESEA), to let you know about your child’s teachers’ qualifications.  We want you to know that it is your right to request the following information about your child’s teachers’ training and credentials:

    • Whether the teacher met the state requirements from the Georgia Professional Standards Commission for certification for the grade level and subject area which they teach;
    • Whether the teacher is teaching under an emergency or other temporary status through which Georgia qualification or certification criteria have been waived;
    • What undergraduate or graduate degree(s) the teacher holds; including graduate certificates and additional degrees, and major(s) or area(s) of concentration; and whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals, and if so, their qualifications.

    Please know that the staff at your child’s school is committed to helping your child reach his or her highest academic potential throughout their school career.  That commitment includes making sure that all of our teachers and paraprofessionals are highly skilled and are providing quality instruction to your child.

    If you wish to request information concerning your child’s teachers’ qualifications, please contact your child’s principal, by phone or email, using the information provided on your school’s website.

  • The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords parents and students who are 18 years of age or older ("eligible students") certain rights with respect to the student's education records.  These rights include the right to provide written consent before the school discloses personally identifiable information (PII) from the student's education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without con­sent.

    One exception which permits disclosure without consent is disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests.  A school official is a person employed by the school as an ad­ministrator, supervisor, instructor, or support staff member (including health or medical staff and law enforcement unit personnel) or a person serving on the school board.  A school official also may include a volunteer or contractor outside of the school who performs an institutional service of function for which the school would otherwise use its own employees and who is under the direct control of the school with respect to the use and maintenance of PII from education records, such as an attorney, audi­tor, medical consultant, or therapist; a parent or student volunteering to serve on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee; or a parent, student, or other volunteer assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks.  A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an educa­tion record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibility.

    Also, upon request, the school discloses education records without consent to officials of another school district in which a student seeks or intends to enroll, or is already enrolled if the disclosure is for purposes of the student’s enrollment or transfer. 

    For more information about Student Records and disclosures, including directory information, please refer to the Student Handbook, and Board Policy JR and Administrative Regulation JR-1(R).
