Georgia Milestones Testing

3rd - 5th grade teachers,
Please sign up for a Milestones practice test time on the link emailed to you on March 29th. Also, Lauren will place a copy of a Milestones letter in your mailbox. Thank you in advance for sending these home on Monday, April 11th.

Power strip

As we prepare for Milestones, we are in need of power strips. If you have any at home that you would be willing to let us borrow, we would greatly appreciate it. Please label the power strip with your name on it, and we will return it at the end of testing. You are welcome to drop them in Karen's office or mailbox. Thank you so much for your help with this!


Below you will find a link to an Economics Webinar coming up on April 13th. Thank you for sharing this information, Ginny Cofer!

Please join us on April 13th at 4 p.m. ET for our free teacher webinar all about Teaching Economics Using Children's Literature (grades K-5).

Children are never too young to start learning basic economic concepts such as scarcity, saving, and spending. Discover how popular children's books such as

Alexander, Who Used to Be Rich Last Sunday, One Hen, Colonial Voices Hear Them Speak, and more can give your classroom an instant economic boost! Plus, you'll be introducing new vocabulary and concepts while developing reading comprehension, listening and speaking skills.
