Class Notes: State school superintendent to visit Enota Sept. 20

POSTED: August 20, 2013 11:26 p.m.

Georgia State School Superintendent John Barge has made plans to visit Gainesville’s Enota Multiple Intelligences Academy.

Barge will present the Family-Friendly Partnership School Award to the elementary school Sept. 20.

Prior to the award ceremony that afternoon, Barge will have lunch with selected parents, school leaders and community members, as well as tour the school.

“We are honored to have Dr. Barge visit us,” said Gainesville Superintendent Merrianne Dyer. “And even more honored that Enota Elementary was selected as a Family-Friendly School.”

Enota received the Family-Friendly Partnership School Award in part by encouraging customer service, a positive school climate and displaying student work in all parts of the school. At Enota, parents are invited to the school at any time, and individual parent tours are scheduled throughout the year, according to the state’s document on the award winners.

The school was one of four Title I school winners for 2013.

Planning meeting set for Mundy Mill

Gainesville City Schools will begin the formal process of opening the new Mundy Mill elementary school site with a community meeting.

The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. on Sept. 12 at Gainesville Exploration Academy, 1145 McEver Road.

The purpose of the meeting is to prepare prospective parents and community members to form a local governance council for the school. The governance council will decide the school’s magnet theme and organizational structure.

The school is included in the Gainesville City Schools charter system contract agreement, and will open as a charter school. It will be in the Mundy Mill development, on city property near Oakwood.

“It’s close to three or four other neighborhoods that were also annexed into the city,” said Gainesville Superintendent Merrianne Dyer.

Mundy Mill is expected to relieve overcrowding at the nearby Gainesville Exploration Academy. Dyer said the property manager of a housing development in the Mundy Mill area said “they can’t build the homes fast enough.”

For more information on the meeting, parents and community members may contact the school system’s main office at 770-536-5275.
