Hola,

Today in Spanish…

we read about schools in Latin America and discussed differences and similarities (the students shared opinions and made suggestions about what they would like) then students completed a couple of activities related to the reading.

HOMEWORK (for band students who missed today’s class)

Any student who missed today’s class please go to the textbook website and complete the chapter 2 (I call it Unit 2) reading and activities that I assigned. Email or see Sra. Rodgers if you have questions. This is due on Thursday.

 

Each year, the state of Georgia has each school administer a survey to parents, students, and staff members that generates the School Climate rating that is tied to our school’s CCRPI score. Each school must have a 75% participation rate on the Georgia Student Health Survey 2.0 and the Georgia School Personnel Survey. Failure to meet the 75% participation rate on these two surveys will result in a 0.00 score; thereby, significantly reducing a school’s School Climate Star Rating. East Cobb is very proud of its 4-star rating and hopes to continue to improve upon this excellence in the future. To do so, we need your help in getting as many parents as possible to take the survey.

The Georgia Parent Survey

All parents are encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data is used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. The Georgia Parent Survey is also available in Spanish. Parents may select the Spanish version within the survey. Results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online. The Georgia Parent Survey link is posted below.

Parents may take the survey on a personal computer, smartphone, or tablet. For those without internet access, please contact Mike Chumley, our Parent Facilitator, to utilize a computer in the parent resource center, or you may visit your local library. The link to the survey may also be found at our website, www.cobbk12.org/eastcobb.

The Georgia Student Health Survey 2.0

Students at East Cobb Middle School will be taking the Georgia Student Health Survey 2.0 in their English/Language Arts classes as they visit the Media Center between now and the Thanksgiving holiday. Federal law requires that the student survey be made available for review by all interested parties; therefore, copies of the student survey may be reproduced and made available to parents or other parties upon request. Student survey results, copies of the student survey questions, and parent opt-out forms are available on the Georgia Department of Education webpage at http://www.gadoe.org/Curriculum-Instruction-and-Assessment/Curriculum-and-Instruction/GSHS-II/Pages/Georgia-Student-Health-Survey-II.aspx.  Please return any opt-out forms to April Gwyn, Assistant Principal, via the front office.

Thank you!
