OK, while the Midtown Patch goes through an editorial transition today, let’s see if we can clean up the local notebook just a bit.
First, members of the Springdale Park Elementary community are scheduled to meet Thursday evening to discuss the Atlanta Public Schools redistricting.
The meeting — which is scheduled as a SPARK Community & general Parent Teacher Organization meeting — is set to begin at 7:30 p.m. in the cafeteria at 1246 Ponce de Leon Ave.
Students from Virginia-Highland, Poncey-Highland, Midtown and Druid Hills attend Springdale Park, which is a feeder school for and Grady High.
All members of the Springdale Park community are welcome.
Don’t look now, but Midtown’s is going global. Owner Kamal Grant explains to 11Alive News here how a second Sublime Doughnuts location will soon be opening 9,000 miles away in Bangkok!
Sublime Doughnuts opened four years ago at 535 10th Street. And take note you college students, you can receive a 15-percent discount on orders of a dozen or more by presenting a college ID. No word on whether that offer is good for the soon-to-be-opened Thailand location.
The Atlanta Business Chronicle reports that the international law firm Paul Hastings Janofsky & Walker will soon be relocating its offices from the Bank of America Plaza to Midtown’s Proscenium building, located at 1170 Peachtree Street.
The news outlet indicates the firm, which reportedly employs 104 attorneys and staff, will leave its current home of 17 years as early as summer and move into the 55-story tower at the corner of Peachtree and North Avenue.
And in sports, it was a bit of a mixed bag for the Georgia Institute of Technology on Wednesday. The men’s basketball team suffered its sixth consecutive defeat in a 68-54 loss at 21st-ranked Florida State. The Jackets dropped to 8-14 overall and 1-7 in ACC action with the loss.
However, the Tech football program hauled in a talented recruiting class on National Signing Day as 17 high school seniors inked with the Jackets. Still not all was well with coach Paul Johnson’s program as offensive line coach Todd Spencer was forced to resign after a school investigation concluded he had sent text messages to prospective student-athletes, which is an NCAA violation.
