Georgia Milestones 4th & 5th Grade Parent Guide

Within your student's report card, you will find a copy of his/her 2014-15 Georgia Milestones Individual Student Report. The Georgia Milestones Parent Guide is designed to help you understand the Individual Score Report. This guide is available on the Mulberry website. Please let us know if you have any questions regarding your child's score report.

Personal Safety

As a reminder, the Personal Safety lessons for K-5th grade students will begin this month. The Think First & Stay Safe™ program is a research-based program that teaches specific personal safety education by way of interactive classroom lessons, classroom posters, role playing and corresponding activities. Think First & Stay Safe enables students to take an active and necessary role in protecting themselves from abuse and exploitation.

If you have questions or would like to review the personal safety materials, please contact our school counselor, Darcy Long, as she is more than happy to discuss this curriculum with you.

If you prefer that your child not participate in the sexual abuse and safety prevention lessons, please write and sign a note indicating your preferences and send it to your child’s teacher. Unless written documentation is received, your child will participate in the sexual abuse prevention and safety lessons.

Career Fair

Mulberry Elementary School is excited to inform you that our annual Career Fair for 2nd-5th grade students is scheduled for Thursday, March 10th. This is an excellent opportunity for students to learn about various occupations through guest speakers from our community.

If you are available to speak to small groups of students about your occupation on March 10th, please fill out the form in your child’s red folder and return it to your child’s classroom teacher by February 5th. We would be honored to have you join us for this exciting learning experience!
