1st annual KiDtalk Student Voice Competition

We are excited that voting is underway in the 1st annual KiDtalk Student Voice Competition for the Cobb County School District.

KiDtalk enthusiasts can view the top 10 submissions (listed below) and “like” their favorite. That means all students, parents, staff and community members can share in the excitement and selection of our finalists. The finalists will be the featured guests at next year’s Cobb County School District Teacher Kick-off, presenting to all Cobb teachers live on July 19th at Teacher Kickoff. We are thrilled to have these students starting our school year off to an engaging and innovative start and centered entirely around student voice.

Join us in voting for your favorite! Go to this link www.kidtalkcobb.com so we can cast our vote for our favorite.
In addition to the finalists, all submissions will also be available for viewing at the
same site.

The Cobb County School District is again offering School Choice (HB 251 and SB10) transfers for the 2015-2016 school year.  Individual school capacity information and applications will be available beginning February 1, 2015 on the District website.  For more information, please see our 2015-16 School Choice webpage.

CCSD Updates Enrollment Protocol

The health and safety of our students and school staff is our highest priority. National and international health authorities are currently working to manage an ongoing outbreak of the Ebola virus disease in several countries in West Africa. The Cobb County School District has released an update to the Enrollment Protocol as well a letter to parents informing them of the changes. Please see the links below.


WIDA is proud to announce the release of a new webinar series designed specifically for families of English language learners (ELLs).

 

An Introduction to English Standards and Assessments for Parents is a three-part webinar series designed specifically for parents, or families, of ELLs in grades K-12.   The series is available in English and Spanish on the WIDA website (www.wida.us<http://www.wida.us>).  Each webinar in the series is organized around three frequently asked questions by parents, including:

 

  *   What does it mean to be an English language learner?

  *   How is my child expected to use language in school?

  *   What does the ACCESS for ELLs Parent/Guardian Score Report tell me?

Families are critical stakeholders within the comprehensive system of standards and assessments of WIDA, and as such, have the right to know and understand how their child is progressing in his or her English language development. Educators are encouraged to share these resources with families throughout the year and in a variety of ways.

 

For more information, or to access the webinars, visit: www.wida.us<http://www.wida.us

Reading Program at Acworth

Acworth Elementary School again welcomes CAREing Paws, the Georgia Chapter of the National Organization of  R.E.A.D.   R.E.A.D. stands for Reading Educational Assistance Dogs.  We now have our very own team consisting of a handler and a R.E.A.D dog.  Ms. D and Bear have been trained to support the reading program here at Acworth.  Bear loves to hear students read stories to him, so he has the pleasure of listening to our students read 2 days a week during the ASP/RSP hours.  Bear is an All-Star dog because he loves to read!
