Arabia Mountain H.S. Families,

Our 2020 yearbook is in production and we know your children are going to love it.  Like many businesses, our yearbook printer has been forced to operate its production facility with a limited crew due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Unfortunately, we are not able to provide you a scheduled delivery date.  Once we have confirmed the delivery of the books to our school, we will provide an update.  Thanks for your patience as we work through this unprecedented event.   

Student retrieval of personal belongings: All student lockers have been cleared. Students’ items retrieved from lockers have been placed in individual bags and labeled with students’ names and locker numbers for easy and safe pick-up during the week of June 15, 2020. Library books, textbooks, and Chromebooks found in lockers during the cleanout have been collected and checked in. Please look forward to the detailed plan for student pick-up that will be sent to parents next Sunday.

Report Cards: Final report cards will be mailed during the week of June 8, 2020.

Summer Assignments: Summer Assignments have been posted on the school’s website. Students are expected to complete summer assignments for the core/AP classes (ELA, Math, Science, Social Studies, or AP Courses) that they have enrolled in for the 20-21 School Year. Summer Assignments will be due on August 31, 2020.

Thank you for your continued patience. If you have any additional questions/concerns please do not hesitate to contact us at 678.875.3602, visit our school’s website, or email us.

         Arabia Mountain, Cedar Grove Receive GHSA Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award

Two DeKalb County high school athletic programs won their GHSA Region Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Awards selected by their region for their display of sportsmanship throughout the 2019-20 school year.

Arabia Mountain (Region 5-5A) and Cedar Grove (Region 5-3A) were each selected on their merit in exhibiting exemplary sportsmanship this past school year.

The two schools set an example for all DeKalb County athletic programs and are to be congratulated for the combined efforts of the school administrations, coaches, athletes and fans.

Georgia’s Electric Membership Cooperatives (EMCs) proudly sponsor the Georgia High School Association Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award and recently announced the 56 GHSA-member high schools that will receive this year’s award. The award honors schools that demonstrated impeccable sportsmanship during the 2019-2020 school year.

Congratulations to all of the region winners of the GHSA Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award for 2019-2020,” says Dr. Robin Hines, GHSA executive director. “It is an honor for these member schools to be selected by their regions for this award. The characteristics of good sportsmanship are critical to the development of our young people as they transition into productive adults. The GHSA applauds our schools on this accomplishment and appreciates Georgia’s EMCs for their support of this outstanding recognition program.”

Since 2006, the GHSA and Georgia’s EMCs have sponsored the Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award which reinforces the GHSA philosophy: “Students, athletes, coaches, spectators and all others associated with high school activities programs should adhere to the fundamental values of respect, fairness, honesty and responsibility.” Schools winning this award are thus honored for displaying exemplary sportsmanship during competition throughout the school year.

Student athletes, fellow students, school staff, parents and event spectators are recognized for the sportsmanship they display. The award is not only a school honor, but a community honor as well. The GHSA region secretaries select winners based upon sportsmanship demonstrated throughout the school year.

Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Awards are presented annually to the GHSA-member high schools in the 56 regions from the seven classifications by EMC representatives during fall athletic events and school assemblies.
