School bus routes for the 2014-2015 school year are now available on the CCSD web site at www.cobbk12.org. We also maintain a direct link at the top of our school webpage.
Runs and maps will be posted at your local school for review prior to the first day of school.
Kindergarten and First Grade students along with their parents are invited to ride the bus on Friday morning, August 1, 2014, as a practice run prior to the first day of school on Monday, August 4. Buses will run at regular scheduled morning pick up times and parents/students should be at the bus stop at least 5 minutes early. Due to limited space, we ask that you limit the number of additional family members riding. Only school-age children are allowed to ride as our regular buses are not equipped with car seats. The bus will follow the planned route to school, then return back to the bus stop.
During the months of August and September if temperatures reach 90 degrees or higher students may bring water in containers with a screw on lid to drink on the bus.
If you have any questions, please contact the Transportation Department at 678/594-8000, or email your transportation area supervisor whose email can be found on the Transportation website.
Kindergarten class lists will be posted at our Picnic and Popsicles event Thursday, July 24th, from 6:00 - 8:00. Kindergarten families, please join us on the playground. Bring your picnic, and our wonderful PTA and Foundation will provide the popsicles.
For Meet and Greet on July 31st, we will be posting all class lists in three separate locations. We hope this will ease the traditional traffic jam that occurs in the front lobby. Please check the following locations during your Meet and Greet times:
Windows by the Front Lobby
In the 4th grade hallway, near Mr. Dunn's and Miss Bentley's room.
Students, Grab your friends and a movie camera and get ready for our first tech challenge of the 2014-2015 school year! Submit a video (or a link to your video) of our Lifelong Guidelines Pledge to Mrs. Carstens and it may appear right here on our website. Have fun and happy filming!
Meet and Greet is just around the corner and we are looking forward to a successful beginning of the new school year. Here is the Student Critical Information Sheet. Please take a moment to print and fill out the form. Bringing the completed form to Meet and Greet will make the process smoother. Thanks so much.
The counselors at Sope Creek are truly grateful to our school Foundation for enabling us to travel to Orlando, Florida to accept the American School Counselor Association "RAMP" award on July 2, 2014. This honor goes to school counseling programs who have instituted and managed data-driven, student-focused model school counseling programs. This is the second time that Sope Creek has earned the award. We are very proud to be among the 72 schools nation-wide so honored this year. Counselors Sara Jane Lombardi, Jennifer Frederick, and Claire Murphy are pictured with the RAMP award.
The Sope Creek Media Center will be open every Tuesday afternoon during the summer! Starting June 3rd, the library will be open from 1:00 - 5:00 for students to come and check out books. Rising K-3rd graders will need to accompanied by a parent. Every time you visit, your name will be entered into a raffle to win a $50 gift certificate to the Book Fair in October. Hope to see you there!
