  • Graduation Fees

    Posted by Rebecca Hewitt at 9/1/2015 8:00:00 AM
    It's that time of year to pay your graduation fees! 

    Graduation Fees are $110, which includes the cap and gown and senior dues. You can pay your fees online at the following Balfour website-


    The senior dues are used to pay for all necessary graduation materials for the graduation commencement ceremony.

    Please be accurate with height and weight when ordering your cap and gown to ensure the proper fitting! You must purchase a new cap and gown and pay senior dues in order to participate in the graduation ceremony.

    Cap and Gown

    Seniors and Parents can text the code "REMINDME  SOFO16” to the #25827 to receive text reminders the day before Balfour is scheduled to be at South Forsyth to take payment by check or cash.

  • Unleashed Memories- Senior Letters

    Posted by Rebecca Hewitt at 8/17/2015 9:00:00 AM

    What IS a Senior Letter?

    Senior Letters are positive letters written to seniors. They are delivered to seniors at the Senior Luncheon during the last week of school.

     What kinds of things can I write about in a senior letter?

    There are many acceptable topics for senior letters. These include, but are not limited to

    • congratulating the senior on graduating

    • wishing the senior well in his/her next phase of life (college, military, career)

    • reminiscing on fond memories (childhood, school, social gatherings, etc…)

    *This is not an appropriate time to bring up old grudges or get one last dig in at a person.

    When do seniors receive their letters?

    Seniors receive their letters AT the senior luncheon at the end of the year. Seniors who are not able to attend the luncheon can pick them up from Mrs. MacAllaster (Media Center) the next morning.

    They will also be available for pick up AFTER graduation practice. This is because we stuff the folders right up until the last minute; they will not be ready until the luncheon, so seniors CANNOT pick them up early.

    Who reads the senior letters?

    Senior letters are delivered to students during the luncheon. All letters are subject to be opened.

    Can people send items other than letters?

    This is NOT advisable. If people want to send money, please have them send it directly to your house. We make EVERY effort to deliver the right letters to the right people, and we are very successful at this, but I wouldn’t want something to accidentally happen to your money. Also, we are really only equipped to store and sort letters. If people want to send you large gifts or photo albums full of memories, please have them deliver those to your homes.

    When can I begin turning in senior letters?

    We will receive letters between August 21st and April 15th. After that, we will need time to sort and organize them.

    Please contact Mrs. Carrie MacAllaster with any questions.


    770-781-2264 ext.100450 

    How do I write a senior letter and get it to a student?

    Senior letters can be written on notebook paper, colored paper, stationary, cards, etc… Please place senior letters in envelopes. In the bottom left hand corner, please write the full name of the student to whom the letter is addressed. If a student is from another country, but has an American name, please tell us that as well. For example, write: Ye Sol “Jane” Lee. The more information you give us, the easier it is for us to make sure the letter gets to the right person. There will be senior letter drop boxes in the Media Center and in the East Hall Office.  What if somebody outside of school (parents, grandparents, family friends, etc…) wants to send me a letter?

    • People who live locally can mail their letters or choose to bring their letters to the school and drop them off at the front desk or Media Center.

    • People who live farther away can mail their letters, or, if saving postage is a real concern, they can e-mail the letters to your parents who can then print them off and drive them up to the school.
