Governor’s Honors Program 2014-2015
The nomination process for the Governor’s Honors Program is currently underway. The Governor’s Honors Program (GHP) is a residential summer instructional program designed to provide high-achieving and artistically talented high school students challenging and enriching educational opportunities not usually available during the regular school year. Rising juniors and seniors in Georgia’s public and private high schools, as well as students enrolled in home school, may be nominated by their teachers. This year’s program, located at a Georgia university, will be in session from June 21 through July 18. If the idea of spending four weeks this summer on a college campus, studying in-depth an academic field of interest with outstanding high school and college instructors appeals to you, speak to one of your academic teachers as soon as possible or swing by Room 327 to see Ms. Dye for more information. The Governor’s Office of Student Achievement provides additional information at the GHP website:
There will be an informational meeting for students interested in the academic and technology areas of GHP on Thursday, September 25, at 3:40 in Room 327.

Accident Avoidance Workshops
Driver trainin’ the way it ought’a be!
Question: If there was a captivating program you could attend with your student, that would reduce the likelihood of them being involved in an accident by more than 75%, would you attend? And if so, how much would that be worth to you? How does less than ½ of your insurance deductible sound?
Whether building confidence in new drivers, or knocking the hot-rods down a few pegs, the Accident Avoidance Workshops’ goal is to save lives by positively impacting new drivers’ development, in both their decision making abilities and the physical skills necessary to maximize on their own vehicle’s capabilities without losing control of their vehicle, or themselves.
The Workshops are coming back to Kennesaw Mt. High School this December 26th and spaces will go quick! Click here for more information and for a complete schedule, or call 770-262-7009. If you are ready to register you may click here.
