WOW! I can't believe it is December already. We have had a great first semester and we want to finish strong. With the busy holidays upon us, many of you are preparing for family events, shopping and taking advantage of many holiday festivities. While this is a very busy time for us all, please make sure that your student(s) have a regular routine for completing homework and/or projects and adhering to a regular bed time schedule. This will help each student be prepared, focused and well rested for the school day.
Our annual Holiday Luncheon is always a huge success. I can't wait to see each of you here for this fun event. Don't forget to send a family picture to the email address that Mrs. Mills sent through Class Dojo.
As we move into the holiday season, this is a great time to reflect on our blessings and think of ways to impact others. Volunteering at shelters, donating to local charities, or just reaching out to a neighbor or friend in need are simple ways to show our love and support for others.
Thank you for your continued support! Have a safe and blessed holiday season and New Year.

Georgia Department of Education 2019-20 Distinguished Schools
The Georgia Department of Education has released the 2019-2020 lists of Distinguished Schools and Reward Schools.
The Distinguished Schools designation recognizes the highest-performing Title I schools in Georgia, while the Reward Schools designation recognizes Title I schools making the greatest improvements.
“While we are focused on continuous improvement for all schools, it’s also essential that we recognize when schools are doing well,” State School Superintendent Richard Woods. “These schools are overcoming barriers, meeting challenges, and producing great gains for their students. I commend the school leaders, teachers, parents and communities in our 2019-20 Distinguished and Reward Schools who are opening up opportunities for their students.”
Distinguished Schools are among the highest-performing 5% of Title I Schoolwide schools and Title I Targeted Assistance schools. Partee ES was one of 5 elementary schools in the district to earn this designation. Way to go Partee ES!
Schools must be Title I to be eligible for the Distinguished School and Reward School designations, and must not be currently identified for CSI or TSI support. Click here for detailed criteria.
Season's Greetings from the Parent Center
Happy holidays to all of our Partee families! Volunteers are always needed throughout the building! Lots of resources can be found in the Parent Center to support learning at home. Please stop by the Parent Center so you can help your student(s). We look forward to seeing you! Feel free to call if I can help with anything 678-344-4410.
Unexcused Absences and Tardies
Arriving on time and remaining at school the entire day ensures that your child is receiving instruction for every content area. When they are late or checked out early, they miss out on critical learning activities that assist them with being successful.
While we know that there are times that we run late or have appointments, but please make every effort to make sure your child is at school, on time, all day. When they are absent, please send a note to the teacher so that your child will not have multiple unexcused absences. Our cafeteria closes at 8:40 AM so if your child arrives late, he/she will need to eat breakfast at home.
Thank you for your support and commitment to making sure your child is at school everyday.
From the Clinic: Reasons to Keep Your Child Home from School - Part 1
The summer temperatures are finally behind us, and the fall season quickly felt more like "winter season". We have adapted from CHOA and The American Academy of Pediatrics some guidelines for when you notice your child experiencing symptoms. This is part 1 of 4 in our series "Reasons to Keep Your Child Home from School," and we hope you find it helpful.
Children with a fever of 101 degrees or higher should stay at home until there is no fever for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications. If you treat a fever with medicine before school, the fever can return and your child could still be contagious.
If your child has thrown up at home, this means that their body is fighting an illness. Please keep your child home if they are throwing up and have a fever. To return to school, your child must be fever free and throw up free for 24 hours.
When there's doubt in your mind about sending your child to school, consult your child's doctor.
Thank you for your cooperation.
