APS Photographer Scott King spent time on the field this weekend with North Atlanta High School’s lacrosse team. Click below for a full photo gallery. Grady High School and North Atlanta High School both have competitive girls and boys lacrosse teams that have moved from being club sports to area sports in recent years.
Athletic fields at Lakewood Stadium, Therrell High School and Mays High School have all been prepped and striped for lacrosse, in anticipation of the sport being offered to all high school students in the near future.
On Friday, April 20, Georgia First Lady Sandra Deal, the wife of Governor Nathan Deal, paid visits to four APS elementary schools and read to Pre-K students in their classrooms as part of her effort to emphasize the importance of literacy, reading and early learning.
Pre-K students at Connally Elementary School, Beecher Hills Elementary School, Kimberly Elementary School and Continental Colony Elementary School listed as the First Lady spoke to the children about the importance of making reading an important part of their everyday lives and becoming life-long readers.
It was a great day for reading! View the full photo gallery HERE.
