This tour is a great way for students to hear a little about the middle school experience from current students and staff. There are usually performances by the music department and a time for questions.
Parents are invited to tour Campbell on one of the following dates:
When tragedy strikes, children depend on the adults in their lives to help them process what happened. Ongoing communication is one of the best ways to help children during challenging times. If you need help knowing what to say to your children, here are a couple of websites that might help.
If you believe that your child needs more assistance, please feel free to consult with your school counselors for support at school or a referral to outside resources.

FIFTH GRADE HUMAN GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
The fifth grade Human Growth and Development Program will be held on Friday, January 19, 2018. Permission letters will go home when we return from Winter break.
A parent preview session will be held on Thursday, January 11, 2018 at 7:15 AM for parents who would like to preview the program before their children attend the session. If you would like to preview the material and cannot attend on January 11, please contact Mrs. Corinna Oliver, counselor.
Teasley’s annual Spelling Bee will be held on Friday, January 12, 2018 at 8:15 in the cafeteria. Parents of participants are invited to attend. The winner of the Teasley Spelling Bee will advance to the Cobb County Spelling Bee that will be held on January 27, 2018.
During September, Teasley we’ll be participating in Attendance Awareness month. Research shows that being in school on time improves school performance and increases a students’ chances of graduating on time. Regular attendance in kindergarten-second grades also makes a child more likely to be a proficient reader by third grade. When a child misses more than 6 days of school, it lowers our school’s state (CCRPI) rating. Everyone benefits when students are in school on time! #schooleveryday #everystudenteveryday
This month each class can earn incentives when every student is on time to school every day. For each day of perfect attendance (no absences and no tardies) the class will earn an extra minute of recess. It could be up to 20 extra minutes at the end of the month! Classes with outstanding attendance will be recognized throughout the month and will have the chance to earn other prizes.
How can parents help? First, if your child is truly sick, they should stay home. However, if they have doctors’ appointments, please schedule them after school or check your child out after 11:00. Please make sure your child is here before 7:50. Send your child to school on the bus. Bus riders are never marked tardy. If you are a car rider, please use the carpool line and get in line early. The car line tends to be shortest around 7:25.
Thank you so much for making sure your child is at school on time every day! Attendance matters and is a big part of making your child successful.
Please join us next weekend for our annual Teasley musical! It’s going to be great!
Student Council had an after school field trip to the Children’s Hospital of Atlanta to wrap up the year. About 12 Student Council members were able to attend. The students played games to learn about the hospital’s “Live Strong for Life” campaign and then helped make treat bags for some of the patients.
This year Teasley has been working towards achieving recognition as a “No Place for Hate” school. This morning we recieved our banner and it’s official! Be sure to check out the banner when you visit the main campus.
