Opening night at Movies by Moonlight fun

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -- The weather was fine for a good crowd at opening night of Movies By Moonlight (MBM), sponsored by Leadership Sandy Springs, with the screening of Big Hero 6.

The Midway of Sandy Springs United Methodist Church Activities Center was filled with kids on bouncy castles and playing games, tumbling activities with Jump Start Gym, patting puppies with Fur Kids Animal Rescue and Shelters, spinning a wheel for tickets or novelty items with Medieval Times, fun giveaways with Brilliant Sky Toys and Games, cookie design with Springmont School, a huge fire truck from the Sandy Springs Fire Station, and of course concessions including purple cotton candy.

Holy Innocents' cuts ribbon on new Math, Science & Commons Building

Holy Innocents' cuts ribbon on new Math, Science & Commons Building

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -- Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School’s state-of-the-art Math, Science and Commons Building was formally opened on Aug. 21.

Friday’s ribbon-cutting ceremony was more than the dedication of a new high-tech STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) building, however, said Board of Trustees Chair Bruce Ford. “I see much more than brick, stone and mortar. The development of this new building is a beginning that serves to ask, ‘What’s next, what now, and what else?’”

The Rev. Michael Sullivan, rector of Holy Innocents’ Episcopal Church, said the new building was also the newest symbol of Holy Innocents’ “deep and abiding responsibility to care for children.”

Border development plan has two metro cities on the fence


SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -- A $55 million development in Sandy Springs was put on hold for 30 days, Thursday night, after residents in another town complained about the traffic gridlock it could bring to their way.

The apartments and office buildings are proposed right on the border of Sandy Springs and Brookhaven at Old Johnson Ferry Road.

Sandy Springs voted to take thirty days to look a little closer, not only at how this plan will affect their city, but how it will affect people in Brookhaven.

The proposed 305 unit mixed-use development is designed to be built in the already crowded Pill Hill area near Northside Hospital.

That idea brought two words to Brookhaven resident Constance Jones.

"Insanity traffic," she said.

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -- Artist Maureen Engle brings her artistry to the Ventulett Gallery inside Holy Innocents’ Episcopal Church with an opening reception on Thursday, Aug. 20, at 6 p.m. The show, which Engle calls an experiment with “color and energy in nature,” runs through Sept. 24.

The public is invited to attend.

Holy Innocents' begins school year With STEM building, new tradition

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -- Seniors and kindergartners at Holy Innocents' Episcopal School began their journey through the 2015-2016 school year together Tuesday morning, Aug. 18, with an inaugural Senior/Kindergarten Tie Ceremony in the courtyard of the new Math, Science & Commons Building.

Head of School Paul Barton spoke briefly at the beginning of the ceremony, reminding students that classes across campus are enriched by each other. He thanked kindergartners, for example, for inspiring HIES with “their sense of wonder and curiosity,” and seniors for “the generous way you share your talents with all of us,” and for their leadership in the year to come.

“Today is a right of passage, the beginning of a journey,” he said.
