PTA Annual Fundraiser Ends Friday


We are nearing the end of our fundraiser, and we want to thank everyone who has showed their support. Each item sold goes towards providing things for our school that would not be possible without your participation. If you have not had a chance to register online or sell items in-person, there is still time! Your participation makes a difference!

Helping is as easy as 1, 2, 3. Sign Up, Set Up & Share… and it only takes a few minutes, if you have not done so already!  Sign Up! Click on the link to get started! 

  • Set Up! Personalize your own support site by choosing your everyday Hero Theme, creating an Avatar, and uploading a Personalized Video.  
  • Share! Most importantly, share through email, text and Facebook; and please share the brochures that came home in the packets with everyone you know. We make it easy to share with family and friends near and far. Take it to work, show it to friends and family, and Be The Change for our school! 

Remember, our school has an opportunity to host an Erin Bowman concert as a reward for the best participation! This family-friendly concert would be a positive experience for our school community. Also, students who upload their personalized video will also have the opportunity to be selected to appear in Erin’s official music video for “Be The Change”. With your participation, you will be a hero for our school! Stand Up, Stand Out, Reach Up, and Reach out; and by working together, we can Be The Change for our school!

3rd Grade SLO Testing

The Cobb County School District will implement Student Learning Objective Assessments (SLOs) during the 2017 – 2018 school year. These assessments consist of a pre-test in August and a post-test in May.

SLOs are subject-specific learning objectives that provide growth measures for student learning. Teams of Cobb County teachers throughout the district developed the SLO assessments that we will administer this year.  Students will take the SLO assessments for Physical Education, Art, and Music.  In addition, if your student receives gifted services in  grades 3rd or 4th they will take the SLO Advanced Learning Program assessment.

For the 2017 – 2018 school year, the SLO implementation requires teachers to use assessments to determine student growth over the course of the year. The results of these assessments ensure that students, teachers, and schools are moving toward a common vision of exemplary instruction and high levels of student academic growth.
