Milestone Testing: 3rd-5th Graders
3rd-5th grade student will take the Georgia Milestones in May. Georgia Milestones measures how well students have learned the knowledge and skills outlined in the state-adopted content standards. See testing schedule below. Testing will begin promptly at 9:00 am each morning. Practice tests are available at GA Experience Online. The primary purpose is to let students experience, firsthand, the functionality of the online testing platform. The sample tests are not graded.

Purple Up Day
Camden Community Behavioral Health Resources
Meet Your School Counselor, Ms. McCaskill
My primary goal is to help all students become better learners by providing a comprehensive counseling program that meets their academic, career, and social/emotional needs. I meet with students individually, conduct small groups, and teach classroom counseling lessons. I provide solution-focused brief counseling to help students overcome issues that have an impact on their school performance, but my role is not to diagnose or provide long-term therapy. I am, however, happy to provide a list of community resources if you are interested in outside counseling services. I also work closely with parents, administrators, and teachers regarding attendance concerns, Section 504 plans, and the MTSS process. Please don't hesitate to reach out if there is anything I can help with!
