Acworth Stacks

a newsletter from the Acworth Learning Commons (ALC)

Great Technology News for the week! Our school has purchased 182 student laptops that will be going into our homeroom classes beginning Tuesday! There will also be 2 carts of laptops that teachers will be able to check out and use in the classroom for full class research and activities. This is wonderful news for our school--getting current technology into the hands of our students increases engagement and 21st Century Learning!

Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl Team to Compete Saturday at McEachern HS!

Our HRRB Team will compete against 30 other Cobb elementary schools this Saturday. Our team has done a GREAT job getting ready and will make a great showing on Saturday. Our coaches include Second grade teacher Erica Matthews, Math Specialist Melanie Miller, and Fifth grade teachers Regina Harris and Mary Southall. Our team is in its third year and is looking forward to competing again this year.

Students on the team read up to 16 books and answer questions about the books in a Round format. We will have 6 rounds of 10 questions each--using buzzers to try and be first to answer! It is fun and challenging!
