“Every child deserves a champion-an adult who will never give up on them. Who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.” ~Rita Pierson

Thank you to Dr. Chanelle Sweet-Dixon, Principal of Susie B. Atkinson Elementary School for allowing me to participate in your special day.

Georgia Pre-K Week, now in its 13th year, is a weeklong annual event celebrating Georgia’s Pre-K Program, which has educated more than 2 million youth since it began over 30 years ago! GSCS has 22 pre-k classes totaling 456 pre-k students. Throughout the week, GSCS Central Office Administrators, Board of Education Members & Partners In Education will be reading this year’s featured book, Cheer: A Book to Celebrate Community by Uncle Ian Aurora, in all of our pre-k classes. Pre-K Week raises awareness for the importance of quality early childhood education. Georgia’s Pre-K Program launched in 1992 as a small pilot program serving 750 four-year-old children in the state. Now, 31 years later, the lottery-funded program has laid a solid foundation for academic excellence and future success in the lives of more than 2 million children in Georgia.
