Volunteers Needed!

North Georgia Fair Food Booth with Cobb County Sheriff’s Office


The Cobb County Sheriff’s Office has been our partner in education for many years.  Representatives from the Sheriff’s Office volunteer their time, resources and talents for our students many times a month.  The biggest fund raiser they have for their Partners in Education Fund is to sponsor a food booth at the North Georgia State Fair.  Last year over $4,000 came back to Bells Ferry Elementary.


The Sheriff’s Office is in need of volunteers to assist with the food booth.  They need Bells Ferry Community Members to help with taking and filling food orders.  The North GA State Fair runs from Thursday, September 20th through Sunday, September 30th.  Feel free to coordinate your volunteering time with the North Georgia Fair events.  Parents may split the hours of the shift but please know that children under the age of 16 years will not be allowed in the booth.  High school students needing volunteer hours are more than welcome to sign up!


Benefits of volunteering:

  • Free Fair Parking
  • Free Admission to the Fair

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

We have been learning about types of rocks and how they form.  We made igneous rocks out of chocolate chips to show melting and cooling.

We also used jelly beans to show how metamorphic rocks form through heat and pressure.

Please join us for Parent Open House on August 14th from 6:00-8:00.  During Open House you can:

  • Visit the classroom to learn about third grade curriculum and procedures.
  • Join PTA and learn about other clubs in the front lobby.

There will be 2 sessions if you have more than one child.  Come to the classroom (C134) at 6:00.  Overflow parking will be available at Publix.  Please remember that this is for parents/guardians only.  I hope to see you there!

I am so excited about this school year!  Third grade is so much fun!  We will have a great year as we make new friends, learn together, and work hard.  I will post pictures on this blog very often, so please use it to see what we have been working on in class.  I will also post the weekly newsletter and homework assignments for you to look at.  The newsletter will contain the week's topics in all subjects, important dates and announcements, and the Leader of the Week.  You  can also check my website to find links that can be used to supplement the curriculum we cover in class.  The website can be found at sites.google.com/site/mrssigsbeesclass.  You, your child, and myself are a team, so let's work together to ensure your child's success!
