Happy New Year!


Happy New Year and welcome back to the DLI classrooms!!

Here are a couple of reminders:

  • Friday, January 5th: Report Card Day! Report cards will be going home in their communication folders. Please sign and return the white envelope. Report Cards are yours to keep. Make sure that you read the comments on the back.
  • 100th Day Project letter coming home on Monday (Jan. 8th)  and will be due on Friday, January 19th.
  • Monthly Homework Challenge is due on Wednesday, January 31st:  In order to participate in Lunch Bunch, students need to turn in English-Math/Language Arts packet due AND Spanish-Social Studies.
  • Tuesday, January 23rd: 100th Day of School! Students will be only be speaking in español until the last day of school to their teachers and peers in the Spanish class only!  Please encourage your child to continue to shine bright and show off their Spanish speaking skills. =)
  • Just a friendly reminder school starts at 7:50am. We are working really hard on being ready for school when the bell rings. As we know this can be a timely process for a kindergartner so we want your child to have the opportunity to have sufficient time walking to the classroom and unpacking prior to the bell ringing. Thank you for your assistance as we are preparing for 1st Grade.

    Our plans for the new year are to continue our hands on learning and motivate our students to shine bright every day!

    Please check out the sign-up sheet below. Many thanks for your continued support!


    Thanks so much for all that you do. We look forward to a wonderful 2018!

Make sure you check out our blogs as they have been updated with Specials Calendar, newsletters, and Parent Resources.

Nickajack will be collecting food items for The Center for Family Resources, which provides over 1,500 Thanksgiving baskets to Cobb families each year.  Thanksgiving week can be even more financially stressful when students are home from school for more than just the holiday meal.  Through participation in the annual Thanks for Giving food drive, our generous community captures the true spirit of Thanksgiving.  With harvesting hands and a helping heart, please consider donating one of the following items to our food drive:

Canned Gravy

Canned Cranberry Sauce

Canned Potatoes

Canned Green/Yellow Vegetables

Canned Pumpkin Pie Mix

Canned Milk

Canned Meat, Tuna, or Ham

Canned Fruit

Canned Soup

Beginning November 6th, please send any food items that you would like to donate to school with your child.  There will be collection barrels located outside the main office.  Thank you for your generosity!  If you have any questions, please contact Nicole Weber at 678-842-5814, ext. 230.
