Special Messages for Staff

Staff Portrait - Our staff portrait will be taken before the Staff Meeting on Wednesday, 10/19. Please wear this year's new blue Cobb collared shirt and black pants or skirt.


PTA Mini Grants - The application period for the 2016-17 school year begins October 1st and extends through October 28th. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to acquire resources, materials and equipment that will benefit the students of Cobb Middle School. As discussed in our staff meeting, the PTA is unable to fund requests for professional learning and continuing education.


This year, PTA will transition to an electronic format. Please review the documents located on the Share drive in the Teachers/Mini Grants folder before submitting your application. All completed applications must be emailed to Alicia Autry Aliciaautry6@gmail.com by the close of the school day on Friday, October 28th.
