Great Weekend to be a BUC!
It was certainly a great weekend to be a BUC this past weekend as our football team won the FIRST EVER Football State Championship, not only Allatoona's first football state title, but the first in the history of Cobb County. Congratulations to Coach Varner and his entire staff on this awesome accomplishment.
After a late night at the Dome Friday night, a number of our students and staff hosted our annual SWAB on Saturday morning......it was awesome to see our students up early serving others after the late night Friday. Thanks to Ms. Dorrough and all of our staff members who participated in the event and in the planning of it to make Saturday morning and early afternoon a HUGE SUCCESS.
We will follow a regular bell schedule Mon-Wed, and will dismiss early for the day on Thursday and Friday for Final Exams. Please make sure you are reminding your students that Final Exams are Thursday and Friday as well as the early dismissal time.
Please make sure all grades have been entered and completed in a timely fashion this week. Look for specific instructions to come out concerning SLO grades, EOC scores, and Finalizing grades.
Please be consistent and DO NOT let students out of your classes later on in the week once they have completed their final exams……. If everyone will be consistent, we can eliminate many issues that arise do to large numbers of students out of classes and walking in the hallways. At NO TIME should any students be allowed to go to the GYM” or to “VISIT ANOTHER TEACHER”. Use that time to ask them to write you a short paper on what their dreams are? Or maybe what their “wish list” looks like for the holidays? I am quite certain that collectively, you, your PLC, and your department, can come up with something productive to fill those few moments that will come later on this week.
Our Holiday Faculty Luncheon will be Thursday after the students are dismissed in the cafeteria. Don't forget to wear your tackiest Christmas sweater on Thursday as well. I look forward to the fashion statements that will be made!
