The health and safety of our students and school staffs is our highest priority. National and international health authorities are currently working to manage an ongoing outbreak of the Ebola virus disease in several countries in West Africa. The Cobb County School District has released an update to the Enrollment Protocol as well a letter to parents informing them of the changes. Please see the links below.
Our 5th graders are busy preparing for our upcoming science fair on Novemeber 20th. We are excited to see so many amazing student applications of the scientific method! In preparation for the big day, we are looking for judges to help determine the winners of our science fair that will later have the opporunity to compete with students from all over Cobb County. It would be wonderful if our judges could have some sort of background or current career in Science and STEM related fields. If this is you, and you are free from approximately 8:30-noon on November 20th, we would love to have you!

2. Your child's name/teacher (No 5th grade parents please!)
3. Your phone number
4. Brief description of your background, etc. that would make you a great science fair judge!
Coming home to you soon is a school sponsored fundraiser called Square 1 Art. This fundraiser takes your child’s artwork and makes it into great products for you to purchase. These products are wonderful keepsakes and gifts for family and friends. Your child has been busy making beautiful artwork that can be made into many fun products such as magnets, t-shirts, mouse pads, ornaments and much more!
The Character lesson for Day 4 was AMPLIFY OTHERS. Students learned that they have the power to make others stronger with their words. Max out everyone’s power meter with positive words!
Today the students were challenged to get pledges from all 50 states, we have 43 and only need 7 more! Rumor has it that our Principals will dunk themselves with ice water if we are able to do it before the weekend!
