Join us for Open House on Wednesday, July 28. Your student, as well as one parent per student, are invited to Austin during the below time slots. You will be able to pick up your Austin Eagle Foundation Supporter Magnet, pick up any Spirit Wear ordered during the spring semester, and meet your teacher. 

Remember, registration must be completed online along with residence verification this year. If you have not completed it in advance, you will need to stop by the media center and complete it upon arrival. 

You should also fill out these forms in advance and give them to your student's homeroom teacher. This will reduce the amount of paperwork to be filled out in the classroom.

Family STEM Challenge Family STEM Challenge


As part of our STEM Program and family engagement at Austin Elementary School, we would like to invite families to participate in a fun, engaging, and non-mandatory STEM activity to complete once a month. The activity would aim to involve members of your family group and would use simple and common materials found around your house. You will not need to purchase any additional materials.  

This summer, please help Kelly Ridenhour, an ecology graduate researcher from UGA to collect data on fireflies in Atlanta. The Atlanta Firefly Project is a community initiative that assists researchers in studying firefly conservation in Atlanta. You can help from your home.  All it takes is a commitment to monitor outside your home two evenings in June and two evenings in July during the summer and submit information using their entry form documenting whether you see fireflies.
