Parent Surveys for School Accreditation

Raider Parents,

During the 2017-2018 school year, Muscogee County Schools are renewing our accreditation.  Each school in the district will be reviewing our practices and policies in an effort to identify strengths and to find opportunities for improvement.  As part of the process, we need your feedback.  Please take a moment to respond to our survey.  We need as many responses as we can get, so your participation is vitally important to us.  Our leadership team at Shaw High School will review your responses and use them to help us improve.  Thank you.

FBLA Wins BIG at Nationals!

I want to take a moment to shine a light on our students from Nationals this year in Anaheim, California and to thank all those who made it possible for these individuals. Win or lose, it is something these students will take with them for the rest of their lives, thanks to you. They worked hard and we played hard!! I remember attending Nationals almost 20 years ago like it was yesterday and although I did not win it was a life changing experience. So thank you to all those that helped these students with this great opportunity. You will forever be remembered! It is very difficult to get one event on stage in the Top 10; however, we were able to get two on stage, with one an all-freshman team competing against all seniors!

FULL STORY: Last week I took 11 students to the FBLA National Conference in California!!!

These students spent countless hours after school and during the summer working to perfect their craft. I am very impressed with these students’ hard work. It takes special students to give up the majority of their summer to come back to school and the library from 9 am to 5 pm during summer break and after graduating. Their dedication and hard work paid off and was well worth the commitment from the parents and students.

Please help me in congratulating the following students for representing our school and county extremely well at the National level! Well, a little further than National level because they also had to compete with other countries like China. Great job group! ☺

2nd – Partnership with Business – Tiana George, Josephine Embola, and Bryonna Burga
7th – American Enterprise Project – ALL FRESHMAN TEAM – Treyvon Lockett, Keasauna Patterson, and Haley Johnson

I’ve witnessed these following students and they did an extremely good job as well. If I thought they were not well prepared I would say that, but I can say they did everything they could have done but came up a little short:

Jarett Jacobs – Spreadsheet Applications
Connor Stone – Database Design
Alicia Gomillia – Electronic Career Portfolio
Alicia Gomillia, Vakarriah Burke, Kailee Rawls – Community Service Project

Shaw High School also received:

  • $1000 grant for March of Dimes to carry out community service projects for MOD.
  • Chapter Challenge Award
  • And others

Again a special thanks to the teachers and admin for your continued support of our students. You are truly Shawsome!!!!

Support Our Shaw FBLA Teddy Bear Drive

Cleaning this summer?  STOP! LOOK! LISTEN!

FBLA is sponsoring a school-wide community service project to collect teddy bears and stuffed animals to donate to police officers in Columbus.  Typically police officers give children bears or stuffed animals when making domestic calls or traffic stops.  It helps to calm them down.

Please donate any gently used or new items to Shaw High School.  They can be dropped off at the office location at Eagle Ridge or they can be brought during the first week of August to the school.

The goal of the project is collect at least 1300 stuffed animals – that equates to one animal per student at Shaw. Be a servant leader, earn community service hours, and help our community.  Donate your items today!

Our FBLA State Competitors attended the State Leadership Conference in Athens from March 12-14. The following members clinched their slot at the National Leadership Conference in Anaheim, California in June!

1st Place – American Enterprise Project – Haley Johnson, Treyvon Lockett, and Keasuana Patterson
