Color version of Allatoona letterhead for Candace Wilkes

Dear Allatoona Family, 

The first six weeks of the 2019-2020 school year are quickly ending, and they have been filled with excitement for the new year.  Our students have been busy in classes, and a great deal has been going on in our community.  Please look for your students’ progress reports on ParentVue after September 18, 2019, and contact their teachers with any questions or concerns. 

Our Fall athletics are in full swing with Cheerleading, Cross Country, Fast Pitch Softball, Football, Hotshotz Dance, and Volleyball competing.  Please continue to support our Bucs, and remember that we are now live streaming high school and middle school events on the NFHS Network.  You can find more information on this by visiting 

In our continuing effort to improve our campus, the track-resurfacing project has been a much-needed upgrade.  We appreciate your patience with the project, and we know that the Buccaneer Track team looks forward to using it this Spring! 

On September 21, 2019, our Buccaneer Band will host The Conquest Band Competition here at Allatoona, and students with Buc Passes may attend this event free by showing their Buc Pass.  Remember that Buc Passes include much more than sporting events.  They also include discounted Homecoming and Prom tickets, the full-length Spring theater production, and more.  Buc Passes are $75 for freshmen, sophomores, and juniors, and $100 for seniors.  You may purchase online at MyPaymentsPlus.   

Coming in October, look for information about Trunk or Treat sponsored by FCCLA and Haunted Trail (October 30 and 31, 2019) sponsored by the Fine Arts Department.  These are signature Allatoona events, and you do not want to miss them! 

As we move into the second six weeks of this school year, I am thankful for the Allatoona community.  This is truly a special place.
