"One Campus Open to a World of Opportunities"

Dear Crim Family Members,

Hello. I am Dawn M. Parker, your new Principal at the NEW Crim Open Campus, 21st Century Learning Center.  This school has been re-designed to offer our students a customized, academically driven program that is geared towards helping each student graduate ready for Career and/or College. We are proud of the gains that we have made over the past several years, and we look forward to building an even stronger learning environment for our families in the upcoming year.

Our Vision, Mission and Motto are as follows:


To provide students with a circle of support that leads to the development of resilient and empowered students.


To inspire and challenge students to learn, grow and accomplish academic, social and post-secondary goals


"Building Hopes and Dreams"

As we enter into the 2014-2015 school year it will be important for us to work together to ensure that each student is afforded opportunities which live up to these standards. Also, as partners, open and honest communication will be key; therefore, I am including very important dates that will help all of us to have a great start for this New Year. Please consider taking time out of your busy schedules to attend the following:

1)      “Drop In and Meet the New Principal” gathering on July 22, 2014 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the Media Center. If you are interested in learning more about me, the vision and direction of the school and/or have any questions, please feel free to stop by and chat.

2)      On July 26th from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Free Back - to - School Immunizations are offered for APS families at Southside Medical Center, 1046 Ridge Ave. SW Atlanta 30315.

3)      Back to School “Open House” will be held on August 1, 2014 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. This will be a great opportunity to tour the school, learn about what programs and courses we offer, as well as to ask questions.

4)      August 4, 2014 is the first day of school. Please make sure that your child has all of the necessary paperwork and immunizations to start on day 1.  Please note that the classes offered to your child are 9 weeks in length, so EVERY day counts!

Thank you for allowing me to serve your student at the New Crim Open Campus, 21st Century Learning Center.  Through our partnership together, great things will happen for our students!


Dawn M. Parker
