Festival of Trees
Starting December 1st, we are asking each first period to collect money for a Christmas tree to display in our main lobby. The Christmas tree does not have to be expensive. It can be as inexpensive as $10. You can either purchase the tree (ex. Dollar General), or you can send the money to the office for us to purchase one for you. Please decorate the tree as well. Please also remember that it does not have to be expensive or large, but it can be large if you would like to have one that size.
Please bring your tree to the lobby as you complete it.

Proposed ELA and Math Standards
Note: There were some recommendations made by survey respondents that committee members felt would be more appropriate for inclusion in the Teacher Guidance documents developed by the Georgia Department of Education for each grade/course and subject. Other recommendations to be emphasized in Guidance and Professional Learning include: phonics instruction, cursive writing, literature and informational text, traditional computing methods, and the memorization of addition, subtraction, and multiplication facts.
The survey will be posted for 60 days of public review and comment from November 12, 2014, through January 10, 2015. The draft revised standards and public feedback will be presented to the Georgia State Board of Education on January 15, 2015, for approval.
