Fourth grade is wrapping up our unit on weather and water! We have learned about the states of matter, the water cycle, clouds, weather instruments, and weather maps. We started off our unit making soda floats to explore the states of matter. Students loved seeing the floats take on all three states of matter. We explored the water cycle by becoming water droplets and traveling on a water journey. Students spent time in clouds, streams, ground water, oceans, mountain and even animals! As they traveled throughout the journey, they added beads to a bracelet to represent their journey. Next week we will begin our social studies unit, Our New Nation, where students will learn about the events that happened after the American Revolution.

Fifth grade is rocking and rolling this year! We recently wrapped up our electricity unit with a hands-on activity building complex circuits. Students also presented their argumentative writing essays with a Writer’s Showcase. In addition, our 5th grade Explorers are remembering to follow PBIS expectations and lend their fellow classmates a helping hand when they need it. We are so proud of them for continuously being mentors for their Kinder Buddies each month. Keep up the hard work, 5th graders!

Congratulations to our September Positive Behavior Referral Recipients

Think First & Stay Safe Program

We all share a common and critical goal for our children to be safe and protected from all things harmful. In support of this goal, elementary students in Fulton County Schools will soon receive annual lessons designed to increase their personal safety & protection.

The Think First & Stay Safe™ program is a research-based program that teaches specific personal safety education by way of interactive classroom lessons, classroom posters, role-plays and corresponding activities. Think First & Stay Safe™ enables students to take an active and necessary role in protecting themselves from harassment, abduction, bullying, exploitation, and various forms of abuse (physical, sexual, emotional). The Health Advisory Committee reviewed and approved this program and selected components will be implemented as part of the elementary curriculum.

Due to the importance and sensitivity of this topic, you are being informed that this material will be presented to your child's class during November and December of the 2022-23 school year. For more details, please click the link below. You can contact your child's School Counselor, Jennifer Weeks at 470-254-6390 or if you have any questions.

The school day ends at 2:20 p.m. Please avoid early checkouts as instruction goes on until 2:15 p.m.; however, if your child must be checked out early, do so before 2:00 p.m. After 2:00 p.m., students will be sent using normal dismissal procedures so as not to interfere with the school-wide dismissal process. We appreciate your cooperation and consideration.

A message from Fulton County Schools

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Per our Student Code of Conduct, students who do not adhere to this expectation are subject to disciplinary action for violation 7A: Failure to Follow Rules and all candy or food items will be confiscated. Please discuss this expectation and possible consequences with your student(s) as this will be taken very seriously.

Young artists get involved through their local PTA or PTSA. A student may submit an entry in any of six arts areas. Only original works of art are accepted. The six art areas are: Visual Arts Photography, Literature, Music Composition, Dance Choreography, and Film Production.

That's why the Reflections Program provides an excellent opportunity for students of all ages to:

  • Unleash their creative talents and be inspired
  • Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork
  • Experience the joy and fun of making art
  • Tap into critical thinking skills to create art inspired by the annual theme
  • Receive positive recognition for their original works of art

Call for entries! Entries due October 19th. Email for more information!
