General News

Hello everyone,

I did not send Monday folders home today because we have not been in school. My webpage is updated in the Weekly Overview section for upcoming graded assignments and the HW section is filled out for the week as well. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Mark your Calendar


We are excited to offer our first ever STEM Camp Cobb on Feb. 19th, 20th, & 21st at Daniell MS.  Students in grades 3-8 who attend will be able to select from 42 different sessions being offered during the camp.  Sessions range from Starwars Mission to Mars to 3D printing basics to Drone Flight School.  Lunch and camp t-shirt provided.

Visit for camp details.  Let me know if you have any questions.

Parents Only News

This event is for parents only.


There is a possibility of your child being pulled for a focus group with Jeff Dess (Cobb County employee) to see what the issues or concerns our students at East Side have regarding the internet. 36 students will be randomly chosen to participate, 4 from each classroom. Parents may opt their student out if they are randomly selected.  Let me know if you have any concerns.




Do not forget that STEM night is tomorrow, Tuesday, January 23rd from 6:00-7:30. If students have a STEM T-Shirt, this is the time to wear it! Just a note, there will not be pizza sold this year. However, we are going to have a great time! I look forward to seeing many of you here!

Science and Math Test Update

To my kiddos who may be worried about tests; remember, I am here to help you! The tests will be pushed to next week. I’m not sure of the day yet, we will talk about it together in class.

To my parents and guardians reading this, if you could spread the word if your child asks, that would be very helpful.

Class Concert and Monday Folders

I did send Monday Folders home today, also…

Our students are “Movin’ in the Right Direction” in 2018! This is a reminder that we will have our fifth grade music performance on Thursday, January 25 (for Brooks, Behrens, Vena and Richardson) and then on Friday, January 26 (for Phillips, Gavin, Marroquin, Morelli, and Meeker). Please have your child wear his/her class t-shirt on both days. Thanks for all of your help and hope to see you on Thursday or Friday next week! Don’t forget to bring that orange sheet about our performance to East Side so you can by-pass the check-in system.

Chattanooga Inquiries

Hello Parents!

I just wanted to send a quick note out regarding chaperones for Chattanooga as I am receiving several emails.  Chattanooga permission forms went home yesterday. For chaperones, we can only bring two chaperones from each class. Please fill out that section of the permission form if you would like to be one. Do not send in that money now. If we have more than two volunteers we will have to draw names. I will draw names toward the end of February.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Chattanooga Field Trip Forms

I apologize for the multiple posts!

Just letting you know that information regarding the Chattanooga Field Trip was sent home in the student’s Monday folders today. We wanted to get the information out as soon as possible, however we do not have enough envelopes for donations at this time. We will send those out ASAP. Thank you for the support!

Classroom Supplies

Hello Families, just a reminder that we will begin using our binders next week, starting Tuesday the 16th. I will have several extra supplies for any students without the materials. For those sending in materials, you will need:

  1. 3 binders (only two binders if your child is in AC math).
  2. Five dividers for each binder for a total of 15 dividers (10 for AC math).
  3. A packet of paper

Thank you families! The students are ready to use them! They are excited about having easier access to their materials in their desks.
