Eighth Grade Dance

As most of you know, the Eighth Grade Dance is a big annual event at McClure.  This year’s theme is “New York!” and we need your help to make sure a night in the Big  goes smoothly.  While the teachers and administrators are present for supervision of the students, parents of 6th and 7th grade students manage the food, supervise check-in, and assist as needed throughout the evening.

 

We need help to make the night a big success.  It’s a great way to show the school faculty, staff and administration your support & it’s a great way to see what it will be like for your kiddo when s/he is in 8th grade!

 

Please click on the link below for more information and to sign up. (NOTE:  8th grade parents are not eligible to chaperone.)

“Gimme 5 for Education”

Dear Parents,

This year our school is participating the “Gimme 5 for Education” campaign to raise funds for the Cobb Schools Foundation and our school!  All students who donate will be entered into a drawing to win 2 Braves tickets!

The Cobb Schools Foundation is the only non-profit organization that supports all of our 112 schools, staff and students in Cobb County School District.  All funds collected will directly benefit our schools through Foundation supported scholarships, grants and programs for our schools, students and staff.

Help us to reach our goal of 100% participation by making a $5 tax-deductible contribution and return it to school today!  Give a “High 5” to education!

Help support our schools & students!  Donations can be sent to the school or donate online by visiting
