Family Engagement Survey
The Family Engagement Survey is now available for parents and families to complete.  A flyer will be also sent home in the Wednesday folder.  The survey helps the Family Engagement Program to determine what the needs are as we plan and prepare for the 2019-2020 school year.  Parents and families can access the survey here. Please reflect thoughtfully and share your ideas, questions and concerns. Let your voice be heard. 

Fun idea: Ask your child to list 3 things that he or she would do to improve Alex II. Include these ideas in your reflections for the survey.

Great job, Einsteins! 

Our FREE money from Coca Cola Rewards is $107 for this quarter.  Keep saving those codes and send them to school where we wait for the weeks they double the value! 

November PTA Meeting

Magnet Night for Prospective Families


On Tuesday November 27, Alex II will host a “Magnet Night” for prospective Alex II families. Our current parents can sign up to welcome and support future Alex II parents - stay tuned for a Signup Genius coming soon!

Think about how you can share your story of the wonderful ways Alexander II has impacted your child's education. How could you encourage a parent who is considering Alex II for their child? 

This is not a typical open house for current families, as teachers will be focused on interacting with prospective students and families. NOTE: Applications for magnet schools are available on the Bibb County website beginning on November 14.  

Some highlights we may share with prospective families are . . .

Alexander II Math & Science Magnet School has the distinction of being the first elementary magnet school in the state of Georgia.

Besides having opportunities to exceed in math and science, students at Alexander II enjoy developing their skills in multimedia (broadcasting), music, physical fitness, and multiple co-curricular activities including Lego robotics, and competitions in math, music, and media.

Alexander II received a 5-Star climate rating (2018) and was named a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence through the United States Department of Education twice in a decade (2006 and 2015).

Historically, Alexander II has been a three-time Georgia School of Excellence recipient, and has received the Silver Award of Excellence in Education through the Department of Education in 2005, 2006, and 2008.

Alexander II is in the process of becoming STEM certified.
