Dear Allatoona Family,

Welcome to Allatoona High School! I am excited about the start of our upcoming school year, with new and returning students.  Our school motto is “Anchored in Excellence”.  We are committed to our tradition of excellence in academics, athletics and the arts.  Students, we are eagerly anticipating your arrival on campus.  As an Allatoona student, and future alumnus we know you will wear the Red and Black proudly.

An upcoming school event you don’t want to miss is the Buccaneer Bash on July 30th.  The Freshmen students and parents should meet at 9am in the gymnasium. That day you will be able to pick up your schedule, tour the school, meet teachers, join clubs, order yearbooks, receive parking decals, purchase spirit wear and purchase the new Buc Pass. We welcome our upperclassmen to campus to pick up their schedule (12th– 1:00, 11th – 2:00, 10th – 3:00), make purchases for the upcoming year and walk their classes.

 I look forward to working with our Allatoona families to continue to build relationships in the community.  I encourage you to be involved and be an active part of the Buccaneer Tradition. Parents, your presence is an essential component of our success, and I will work to build a relationship with you.  Once again, I plan to hold monthly “Coffee Talks with the Principal” the first Friday of each month at 9:00 a.m.  Please join me for this informal time to talk about Allatoona High School.  We hope our Buccaneer families will make it a priority this year to attend as many school-sponsored events as possible.  Our first PTSA meeting and Open House will be Tuesday, August 20th, at 6:30 PM. 

 Included are some helpful links:

·         School nurse/medical procedures:

·         Counseling:

·         Athletics:

·         Fine Arts:

·         Clubs & Organizations:

·         PTSA:

 Once again, welcome to Allatoona High School, home of the Buccaneers! Let’s work together to make this our best year ever!  See you at the Buc Bash on July 30st and remember the first day of school starts at 8:20 on August 1st.
