All payments made to the school should be in a white envelope labeled with the child's name, teacher's name and what the payment is for.  ASP payments go in brown envelopes.  Please know that you cannot combine payments for ASP, lunch, PTA or other items.  Each must be a separate payment in a separate envelope.  Money must be deposited into the Money Monster (formerly known as the safe!). Thank you for your attention to this matter. 



Please start the registration online.  When you complete the online registration, please call the office at 678-494-7600 and make an appointment with Mrs. Irma Gil to finish the process.  Appointments are only made from 8:00-11:00 a.m. Monday-Friday.  You MUST have an appointment to register your child at Blackwell. 
New students will begin classes the day after the registration process is complete.
Thank you!
