Can't Hide Our Wildcat Pride
As we wrap up the first month of school I want to thank you for the trust you have shown us as we navigate the ongoing pandemic. We will continue to provide quick communication regarding our processes around the COVID-19 virus. Your support helps us to successfully continue face-to-face learning.
Contacting our staff members early when symptoms arise and keeping students home until they are cleared by a medical professional is the foundation of our success. The sacrifice our families have shown to wait for appointments and err on the side of caution has been remarkable. We understand the constraints it puts on a family when a student is sick and how difficult it has become to receive medical attention. I cannot express my gratitude for your commitment and sacrifice to our school being successful.
Just like last year, we are all in this together. Please do not hesitate to reach out to any staff member if you have questions or concerns.
Meet our newest Wildcats!
Aaron Easter Wins Scholarship
Our students are rockstars in and out of the classroom. We are so proud Aaron Easter and his accomplishments which landed him a spot in the Times Georgian Newspaper, a college scholarship, and the opportunity to meet one of the best in his sport! Way to go Aaron.

Way to go Wildcats!
Our Wildcats are off to a great start earning tokens and tickets in the cafeteria for good behavior choices. Individual students can earn tokens and cash them in for ice cream. Classes are working together to earn tickets. The class in each grade level earning the most tickets during the week, will get ice pops on Friday!
Let's Go Get It!
Live Your Dream!
Positive Office Referrals
We are so proud of our Wildcats who continue to earn Positive Office Referrals!
Congratulations to our students who were recognized in August. 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 August 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.
Character Word of the Month
During the month of September, we will be introducing and promoting the character trait of humility.
A huge thanks to Southwire for their generous donation of backpacks and school supplies. We are so thankful to have support from our community partners. #carrythebanner #WeAreVR
