Cougar Camp for Rising 6th Grade

9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Henderson Middle School is excited to host our annual Cougar Camp, an excellent opportunity for our rising 6th graders. The camp, held in person on Thursday, August 1, 2024, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., offers a chance for students to meet teachers and new classmates, engage in content activities, and explore the building. We believe this experience will be invaluable for their transition to middle school. All new participants must register by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, May 10, 2024. Late registration will not be accepted after that. Please complete the registration form below to secure your child's spot. 

Instead of providing proof of residency in person, parents/guardians need to upload documents to the Infinite Campus Parent Portal.  Parents/Guardians must have an Infinite Campus Parent Portal account to verify/update their student(s) information.  For parents/guardians needing help creating or accessing an existing portal account, CLICK HERE.  For more information about the annual verification process, please CLICK HERE or visit

Mission & Vision

The vision of the DeKalb County School District is to inspire our community of learners to achieve educational excellence. Our mission is to ensure student success, leading to higher education, work, and life-long learning. We are making this vision and mission a reality – every day, in every classroom throughout the District.

Through community forums, focus groups, listening sessions, and more, we have engaged our stakeholders, refined our objectives, honed our procedures, and formulated a robust, highly-structured yet agile and adaptive strategic plan. We are pleased with the progress we have made thus far, and excited about the future – of our District, our community, and, most importantly, the 100,000+ students who daily bring to us their limitless potential.

The District has created performance measures, targets, and initiatives to ensure success in each goal area. A monitoring and data collection process has been developed, and rigorous progress check procedures have been implemented. At the local level, on-going training sessions are offered to all principals in order to support the work of aligning, refining, monitoring, and evaluating the continuous improvement efforts of each individual school.

As a community of learners, we are committed to excellence in everything we do – within the classroom and throughout the District. This continuous improvement process permeates each aspect of our Strategic Plan, and we are honored to partner with you to make it a reality for all.
