I hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. Our students came back from the much needed break ready to learn. We started the iReady mid-year diagnostic this week and we are seeing a lot of growth since the iReady assessment in September. iReady reports will be sent home once all students have completed the assessment.


This evening, our 4th and 5th grade chorus students will perform their winter concert for their families. They have been working so hard all semester preparing for this event. All students will be able to see their performance during the school day on Friday. Thanks to Ariel Robins and Findley Ballance for all of their time and dedication in preparing the chorus for this wonderful winter event!


Have a great weekend!

Georgia Milestones Coach Workbooks

We have extended the window to order coach books!

We are often asked, “What can we do at home to help prepare for Georgia Milestones?” If you are interested in supplemental materials, the Georgia Coach series is an excellent choice. This grade specific series provides students with the level of rigorous practice that is called for by the Georgia Standards of Excellence and will help prepare your child for the Georgia Milestones. Georgia Milestones will be given to 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students; however, only 5th graders will be taking the Science portion. Reading/LA and Math books are available for grades 3-5 and Science books are available for grade 5. If you would like to purchase books for your student, please use the Online School Payment System. There is a minimum order that has to be reached, so in the event that we do not make the minimum purchase numbers, we will provide refunds. All orders are due by Friday, December 10th.

You can purchase the books here.

Calling All Artists!

Would you like to create a holiday tree ornament to be displayed at the Georgia Department of Education? Well, here’s your chance! Richard Woods, Georgia’s School Superintendent, is looking for students to create a holiday tree ornament to help ready his office for the Winter season. This is not a contest, so all ornaments sent will be displayed. Ornaments could be made from paper, clay, Model Magic, polymer clay, popsicle sticks, fabric, wood, etc., just remember, they are supposed to hang, so nothing too heavy! Your decoration could be winter-themed or holiday- themed. Make sure to attach a tag to your decoration that includes your name, your school’s name (Findley Oaks), and your art teacher’s name (Ms. Cessna). Please be aware that unfortunately, these ornaments will not be returned. Ms. Cessna will be collecting the ornaments until Thursday, December 9, at which time, she will box them and send them all as a group to the Department of Education. If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Cessna at cessnap@fultonschools.org.
