Hello DHMS Families!
I hope you’ve had a wonderful summer and are geared up for another great school year!
For those of you who don’t know me, in addition to representing you on the school board, I am also a mother – with an 8th grade son at Druid Hills Middle and an 11th grade exchange student at Druid Hills High. I have worked in the government and nonprofit sectors for more than 20 years, including as a science and English teacher with the US Peace Corps. It is my honor and privilege to serve you on the DeKalb County School Board.
I am excited to announce that our new superintendent, Dr. Horton, will be joining me for two townhalls this semester. The first is Tuesday, October 3rd at 6:30pm at Druid Hills Middle, and the second is Wednesday, October 11th at 6:30pm at Cross Keys High. Interpretation services will be available at both locations. I hope to see you there!
My goal is always to be accessible and available. If you have a question, comment, or would like to meet, I can be reached at [email protected] or 404-946-8344. You may also wish to subscribe to my bi-weekly newsletter (whitneyfordekalb.com/mailinglist) or follow me on Facebook (facebook.com/whitneyfordekalb). Finally, if you would like to watch, attend, or speak at an upcoming school board meeting, that information is available here: dekalbschoolsga.org/board-of-education.
Wishing you a wonderful school year!
