Way to GO East Side!!!

Our party was truly a celebration of the team’s effort to do its best! Each student, regardless of individual scores, earned points that contributed to our 2nd place win! I’m so proud of every member! Thank you to the parent coaches…our success is due to your dedication.

Thank you so very much for the generous gift. I appreciate your encouraging cards and words. I love my job and leading the Science Olympiad team is icing on the cake!

Here is a link to a shared Dropbox folder. Several parents asked for the slideshow pictures. Just remember to download the pictures and not remove them. Your actions effect the items in the folder.  Click the link below.


Good Luck to Our Team!

I am attaching the final State Schedule 2018 State ESO Schedule – Final-26efkz5. As you can see, the arrival time is between 7:30 and 8:45. The parade of teams and opening ceremonies starts at 8:20 so please arrive to our tent by 8:00 so that I can submit our roster. Remember, parking is $10 cash and the lot is crazy busy…so early arrivers get in a lot easier. Thank you to Medha’s dad for taking our tent. We will set up the tent together as we did last year.

Remember to bring chairs and sunscreen and food for the day. I look forward to seeing everyone!

Saturday Reminders and Info

Parents, We are only a few days away from the state S.O. at KSU! I wanted to give some helpful tips and reminders to you before Saturday…especially for the newest team members.

1. Parking costs $10 (Cash only) for KSU parking. Arrive early so that you don’t wait in the long line to enter the parking deck.

2. 2018 State ESO Schedule – Final-26efkz5

3. We have a tent that helps us have shade or shelter from any rain. Thank you in advance for your help to set it up and take it down.

4. Food – I’m planning to bring my own lunch items since food choices are very limited on campus. If you want to bring a snack to share, please feel free to do that.

5. Chairs, sunscreen, blankets to sit on, card games, etc. help to make it a fun day for everyone.

6. Mrs. Jones’ phone number is 770-312-2070 in case of emergency.

7. Let’s have a great day cheering on the teams!



We have a lot to celebrate this year! Our team is the number one team in Cobb County and will do well on May 12th at KSU. We will have a celebration of the year on May 14th. Parents are welcome to join in the celebration. The celebration will be in my classroom (#324) from 2:30 – 3:00. We will have a treat and share our memories of this year’s adventure. Hope to see you there!


Two More Weeks!

We are so excited to go to KSU on May 12th! I am sending you the link to the Georgia Science Olympiad for Elementary so that you can see the schedule for the day. I have copied all of the required forms and will send them home with your student today or tomorrow. Please return the forms to me as soon as possible so that I can keep them with me on the day of the competition. There are some options for ordering food at KSU – information is on this website GA Science Olympiad .

I am still looking for a family (a dad would be great) who can take the tent for the day – bring to KSU, we all help set up and take down – then take it back to return to E. Side. 


Please email Mrs. Jones if you have any questions. [email protected]

Help needed

I would love to have a family volunteer to take the tent to KSU this year and then return it to East Side later in the week. It is large and is hard for me to do by myself. I will have more information to share about the state level at KSU soon! Thank you!

WOW! What a GREAT day!

Congratulations to the team for the great teamwork today at Walton. There were 32 schools competing in the 18 events. Thank you for all the hard work of the parent and teacher coaches.
