We need all parents to complete this survey for the state of Georgia. The survey ends March 11, 2022. We value and respect your opinions about our school and our system. Thank you in advance for your help with this matter.

Georgia Student Wellness Survey for Grades 3rd-8th.

Attention Parents- All students in grades 3-8 will be administered the Georgia Student Wellness Survey for our school. This survey helps to shape our Climate rating that the state has given us in the past. We have been blessed to be ranked at the highest Five Star Rating in the past. If you do not want your child to take the survey, please complete the opt out form for the survey. If you would like more information about the survey or the Opt Out form , it is found at:

It is my hope that you work with your child at home each night on reading and math skills for all grade levels. We need our students to feel confident in these areas so that they can deepen their understanding in all areas. All students in grades 3-8 should know multiplication facts. All students should be able to read on their grade level. It takes all of us working together to help make your child successful in the classroom, home, and life. Thank you for your help with this matter. Set some family goals with your children that pertain to academics but also life. For example: Read one book per month as a family, spend time playing board games, exercise as a family, etc.

Ask your child what their goals are that they have gone over with their teachers.
