Welcome
Welcome to Armuchee Elementary School from our entire staff!  This is a safe and caring environment where learning and excellence in education is a vital part of our school tradition. Our school motto  is to "Shape Lives to Shape the Future" as we team with the home to provide a foundation that will allow your child to grow academically and socially into responsible citizens of this community and country. 

The tradition of AES is one of rich tradition that allows students to grow and begin the development that will contribute to their future successes in life.  Examples of these opportunities at AES can be found in our state legislative halls, where students from the halls of Armuchee Elementary introduced Senate Bill 41!  The Governor of Georgia signed that bill into law on April 26, 2004 making the Green Tree Frog the offical state amphibian for Georgia.  The Wildlife Federation of Georgia nominated the students of Armuchee Elementary as the "Youth Conservationist of the Year" for their contribution to protecting the environment and their use of nature to utilize outdoor classrooms with gardens for butterflies and a nature trail behind the school that adjoins the Berry Wildlife National Forest.  An ampitheatre on the trail serves as a classroom with the capacity to teach about 60 students in a nontraditional amphitheater classroom that is nestled into the wooded hillside behind the school. Our partnership with Arrowhead and the Boy Scouts to make learning outside more accessible with outdoor pavilions, beautiful bridges across the creeks in the wooded area help make our school a place to expand the imagination and grow the minds of our students.  

Each new year and new decade brings new challenges and adventures to our staff and school as we look to the future and adapt to changes in our society and environment that shape our learning and future.  We do not live by the laurels of the past, but are  just as excited about our tomorrows and excited about each new chapter and challenge at AES.  It is much like an exciting novel or story and we cannot wait to turn the page and see what tomorrow holds!  They say, "The Future of our Nation is in the Hands of our Children, and at Armuchee Elementary School it is our goal, to Give Those Hands Something to Hold Onto" We hope you will join us and say, "What can I do to make a difference in the life of a child?", as together We Shape the Lives of Our Children!

Humbly Yours,


Rodney J. Stewart,  Principal 
Armuchee Elementary School
"Shaping Lives to Shape the Future"

 

 

 


Annual Notification – Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA)

The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) of 1986 requires parents, students, teachers, and employee organizations be notified of the Asbestos Management Plan at each facility. This notification provides information detailing Floyd County School District’s strict compliance with AHERA.

AHERA requires all schools, pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade, to be inspected for Asbestos Containing Building Materials (ACBM) and for an Asbestos Management Plan (AMP), which outlines the control and management of ACBM in each facility, to be developed.

The AMP includes an operations and maintenance program, which will control exposure to any asbestos-containing materials through a systematic schedule of monitoring, employee training, recordkeeping, and periodic re-inspections. Maintenance and custodial personnel receive asbestos awareness training to qualify them to conduct their routine activities around asbestos. 

A copy of the AMP for each school is available for review in the principal’s office of that school. Questions pertaining to asbestos are to be directed to David Van Hook, Director of Facilities, at 706-234-1031 ext. 7270.
