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.

Six Flags Reading Program has begun!

Each student must read 6 hours to earn a Six Flags ticket

to be used this summer. Six hours is only 360 minutes!

Record any reading from January 16 – February 19.

What do parents have to do? All you have to do is

complete the reading log of your child’s reading minutes.

Your child’s teacher sent home the log in the Friday folder.

I can’t find my child’s reading log? If you misplace your log, feel free to ask

the teacher for another log. All reading MUST be completed on a Six Flags reading log.

When is the deadline? All reading logs must be returned to your

child’s teacher by February 22.

Transportation Changes

We strongly encourage you to send your child home the same way every day. However, we do understand that emergencies do arise. Should you need to change your child's transportation, a hand written note from home is required with a parent signature.

Phone calls and emails are not accepted.
