Intent Forms:

As Teasley prepares for the upcoming school year, we must have accurate information on file for your student and family. We need your help ensuring that the information on file is correct, and to determine how many Teasley students will be returning for the 2020-2021 school year. Please click the link below and complete the form for EACH of your students. If your student is looping with their current teacher to the next grade level, we still need you to complete this form. This form must be completed for each student individually. Also, for your child to be placed on a class roster for the 2020-2021 school year at Teasley Elementary, you must provide an updated lease, if your lease has expired or will expire before August 3, 2020. You must provide an updated lease and current utility bill prior to the first day of school. If any of these required documents are not received, your child WILL NOT be on a roster for the 2020-2021 school year. If you have moved outside of the Teasley Elementary attendance zone, and would like to remain, you must complete the Continuation of Enrollment form online at cobbk12.org. There will be a separate email with a separate form to complete for all 5th grade students. If you have a child who is also in 5th grade, please be on the lookout for that email as well. Please have these forms completed and submitted no later than May 11th. Please email any lease and utility information to joy.warren@cobbk12.org. Thank you for your continued support during these digital learning days!

Some Good Teasley News: During this unusual time of distance learning, we continue to hear about special moments, gestures and events happening in our community.   Teasley students, teachers, families and community helpers are standing out for the simple ways they help and show they care for others.

Coach Homansky and Senora Vega created the Teasley “Some Good News” show.  The first episode will be posted on our Facebook  page and we will post a new episode every Monday.  We will also post Good News videos throughout the week!

We would love for all of our Teasley families to be a part of this. To participate, please record a short video telling us about something good you saw.  Kindness, compassion, creativity, you name it! We would love to hear stories about community helpers you see too.  Maybe you want to make something for your mail carrier or to leave treats on your porch for the delivery person?  Plus healthcare workers of course! Or it might be something you that happed  3 weeks ago.

Families and staff can share their stories by emailing videos to teasleygoodnews@gmail.com.  If someone feels shy, you  can just take a picture and email it with the story!   Thank you for everything you do!
