Dear Bunche Parent,
This school year has been one of challenge, uncertainty and excitement. Through it all, our students as a school demonstrated growth in every area measured by the CRCT except Language arts which remained the same with 89% of students meeting or exceeding the Standards. We remain committed to Building a Better Bunche!
As I write this letter we are in the final stages of packing the school to move to our temporary location, Archer High School. During the 2013-14 school year, Bunche Middle School will begin a year and a half renovation that will result in a state of the art Bunche Middle School building!
Important Information for parents and students:
Ø The Bunche Middle School temporary location is the former Archer High located 2250 Perry Blvd, Atlanta, Georgia, 30318. The temporary location is 12 miles from our current location.
Ø APS transportation department will provide the revised school bus pick up times for students as we are closer to the start of school.
Ø Parents/guardians are required to register students EACH school year and update contact information. Bunche registration dates are July 29 –August 7. Parents are encouraged to register students BEFORE the first day of school. Registration times are 8:30 – noon and 1:00- 3:00; Late hours for registration noon – 6:00PM July 30th and August 1st
Ø The first day of school is Wednesday, August 7. The school uniform remains, 6th grade white shirts, 7th blue shirts and 8th gold shirts, and khaki bottoms.
Ø Encourage your child to be involved in productive summer activities, reading, journaling, physical activities, volunteering and maybe part time work!
Ø Enclosed is the Report Card and CRCT scores. Use the summer to review achievement and progress to determine and target growth areas for 2013-14 school year. If your child owes for books or other fines, a hold is placed on school records.
Ø The school phone number will remain 404-802-6700 and staff will be available July 23, 2013.
Have a safe and enjoyable summer!
