Can't Hide Our Wildcat Pride

Wildcat families,


This month we started celebrating our students who are putting in the most work for Lexia and Dreambox. Students can work on these programs throughout the week at school or at home to try and earn a Top 5 badge for their computer. Lexia and Dreambox are programs that personalize learning for your child bringing them instruction at their learning level. If you would like a Chromebook for your child to work at home we still have some available. We want to thank Mrs. Goldin and Mr. Boyd who prepared 250 Chromebooks to go home and passed out over 150 of them to K-5 students this week.


Warm weather seems to finally be making a comeback and for our younger students that means please make sure to change out the extra clothes they carry in their backpacks. For our older students, that means we are getting ready to take the Georgia Milestones End of Grade Assessments. Students in 3rd through 5th grade will take multiple assessments in the areas of reading, mathematics, and science (science is only assessed in 5th grade). If you have any questions about how to prepare your child for the Milestones assessment, please contact your child's teacher.

Wildcat Awards

Congratulations to our students who were recognized in February. We celebrated students with 90% positive Dojo behavior, students who displayed our character word of the month, and those who earned the Principal's Award! Way to go Wildcats! We also kept track of the total number of words our students read in the month of February and rewarded the top class in each grade level with ice cream. Students can contribute to their class word count by reading and passing AR quizzes.
