Students, Parents, Teachers & Friends of Education,

Celebrating 90 Years

Statham Elementary and the Barrow County Future Farmers of America (FFA) chapters hosted a reception to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the first FFA chapter in Georgia. The chapter was located at Statham High School. Descendants of the original chapter's family members were recognized and spoke of the positive impact it made for them. Look at how FFA has grown in Barrow County. Visit Winder-Barrow High Facebook. Visit Apalachee High FacebookSee pictures of celebration.

Join The Tiger Clubs 

The spring session of Auburn Elementary Tiger Clubs for grades Kindergarten through 5th Grade took place February 20. These clubs were led by the BOLD fabulous faculty and staff. Students choose their clubs based on personal interests. What do Tigers like? Legos, art, games, food, computers and so much more. Share the fun.

Thank you to our local club sponsors, Ingles, WalMart and Home Depot .
