Georgia Parent Survey

East Side families, It is time for you to complete the Georgia Parent Survey. The data gathered from these surveys will be used as part of the calculation of East Side’s 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 link is posted below.  We ask for one parent from each family to complete the survey by Friday, December 15, 2017.

Georgia Parent Survey:


Monday Folders, Student Holidays, and Target Notice

Hello Families,

As tomorrow is a student holiday, the students will get their Monday folders on Wednesday. I apologize, I was unable to finish writing comments in them. With that, I have all assignments I have graded updated in ParentView.

Lastly, just a note that this is our last Thursday for Target for this nine weeks.

I hope you all are having a fantastic Fall! The students seem to truly enjoy their weekends and activities outside of school, I love hearing about them.

Monday Folders

Please keep an eye our for our Ellis Island lunch form. With the exception of allergies, I encourage students to eat the school lunch as it is apart of our simulation. Please return these forms as soon as possible.

Science Test

We will have a science test on November 1st during our science time. I have uploaded two PowerPoints to the “PowerPoints/Websites” tab to give students something extra to study in addition to their science notebook. I will send home a study guide tomorrow. Hope that helps! We are having a blast with the labs this week!

East Side Survey/ IXL Information

Hello Families,

Students have guidance tomorrow. For this class, we have asked for a permission form to be returned to school indicating if your child may participate in a school-wide bully prevention program online survey. If you do not still have this form, you can email me indicating if they can take the survey and that will replace the physical form itself.

Additionally, IXL is back. Remember, East Side has its own IXL page, you can get to it using the IXL graphic in our quick links menu of our school webpage.  The username is the student number and the password is 3850 for all students. If you are using the app, you must use the student number followed by @eses, then the password.

Week 10/23 – 10/27

Good evening everyone!

Parents, if students have the available resources at home, I may ask them to complete some research at home on a chosen writing topic for this quarters Nonfiction Writing Unit.  The best way to be prepared for class is to print articles if that is possible. The next two weeks I will be focusing on how to note-take from research well. Therefor, I want the students to be practicing note taking in class so I can monitor their progress. This step is crucial in their opportunities for success on their own nonfiction writing. If you do not have the ability to print, I will make sure that your child gets that opportunity in class. This is not a problem at all.

*Important: Students know how to use the Cobb Digital Library to complete their research. I advice the students to use ONLY this resource unless they have supervision and permission from an adult. Students are researching a variety of topics, some including important historical battles. If they are going to use Google to find additional information, please be mindful of the potential content your child could see.

Finally, I have updated the HW tab and Weekly Overview tab with “Dates to Keep In Mind.” Thank you everyone for your support last week. I have a truly wonderful group of students and families.
