Inman 6th grade students celebrate proposed changes to 6th grade social studies curriculum. What a great example of student advocacy! They made posters, told parents and spoke to Donna Lowry of 11 Alive news to fight against a proposal that would eliminate the study of slavery and the Holocaust in the proposed new 6th grade Social Studies Standards and it appears their voices were heard!

On Saturday, March 26, the Inman Drones Team for the first time participated in the Drones for Good competition at Grady High School. We are very proud of our drones team because they were able to overcome numerous challenges building and flying the drone. They showed the true spirit of the competition by working together as a team through the issues and never giving up. They came 7th in flying by completing four different challenges. Additionally, they were invited to present their drone-related innovation to the American Heart Association.

Inman Theatre Arts students participated in the Ryan Cameron Foundation Youth Anti-Violence Arts Contest. One of our teams (8th grade: Amelia Kushner, Remy Pair and Sadie Mothershed) WON the FIRST PLACE $500 prize for their anti-bullying PSA. The Atlanta Hawks Foundation was so impressed with the piece that they donated another $1,000.00 to the award. This started as a simple class project infused into the theatre arts curriculum as an extension of our SEL initiative. See the winning video can be viewed here.
I am beyond pleased with the results. The winners were not able to be present to receive the award so Hanna Willis (8th grade), Jeb Davis (6th grade), and Malori Switzer (6th grade) gave up their time today to participate in the youth forum and represent Inman and accept the award on behalf of Amelia, Remy, and Sadie….teamwork makes the dreamwork so kudos to them as well!
