Superintendent, Dr. Craig Lockhart states, " I was nearly in tears as our students presented a powerful exhibition of learning. Our students were AMAZING! Thank you to teachers: Kylie Garrard, Consuela Woodson, Principal: Dr. Hollie Walters, and the K8 staff for pouring a high quality education into our students! "

Mrs. Kylie Garrard expressed her gratitude, and how proud she is of her students as well. Garrard states, " An amazing day with a great group of students. We had the opportunity to present as part of Georgia Deeper Learning Network at GAEL in Athens today. My students were phenomenal, and represented our CSI: Dooly Project well. I am beyond proud of them, and we squeezed in a tour of UGA's athletic facility and a visit to Chick-fil-A to end our day."
