AHS Forms Due 2/10

Allatoona Elective Registration forms are due February 10th.

To clarify a point of confusion, North Cobb forms only need to be returned if students are making changes.  Allatoona forms are due regardless, and they must have a parent signature.

Important Notes Regarding North Cobb Elective Forms

Student copies of elective forms were distributed today.

Students have until February 10th to make changes.  The easiest way to make changes is to return the student copies with the updated information, or email them to

Only forms with changes need to be returned.

Students already taking foreign language in middle school automatically get placed in level 2 unless parents request otherwise.  They do not need to complete the foreign language elective page.  Foreign language forms only need to be completed if the students are starting a language from the beginning, or if they wish to discontinue a current language and replace it with a new one.

Spanish 1 is very difficult to get as a freshman.  Because most every middle school offers Spanish 1, the majority of class offerings for freshman year are Spanish 2.  The Spanish 1 classes that are available are filled by older students since they are allowed to pick first.  If students are adamant about only taking Spanish, they should wait until sophomore year to begin.  Other languages are much easier to get.

Core class recommendations are underway.  The core recommendations and the elective selections will be combined and sent home for final parent approval in April.  Parents will have another opportunity to make changes at that time.

The North Cobb campus tour still has not been scheduled.  It is tentatively set for early March.  The firm date will be promoted once it is finalized.
