Believe, Begin, Become
Envisioning excellence through exemplary education


The mission of Bullard Elementary, in partnership with family and community, is to provide a foundation which fosters integrity and lifelong learning while developing responsible, productive members of society.

 

 

 

 

 

The “Gimme 5” Campaign will be held February 23rd – 27th.   “Gimme 5” supports the Cobb Schools Foundation which provides teacher grants, student scholarships, support for the After School Program, Classified Employee of the Year, and much more.  If Bullard raises $750, then 50% of the proceeds will be spent on educational items and instructional use for our school.  At the end of the campaign, one student’s name will be drawn to receive two tickets to an AMC movie theatre.

Bullard placed 10th is the State in our Reading for the World Record last summer! 184 schools in Georgia competed (7,334 schools in all 50 states and 29 countries). This was the 8th year of the program and the top 20 schools appear in the Scholastic Book of World Records!

The total number of minutes read was 304,749,681 (yes- that would be million)

We had 41 students read over 31,000 minutes!  The top class was Debbie Corrado with 3,741, and 2nd place went to Stacie Allen with 3,277.  All participating students got a certificate and goodie bag. The top 2 teachers got a Starbucks gift card!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Congratulations to Nikki Brooks for receiving a Cobb School's Foundation Grant to purchase a class set of Reprogrammable Recon 6.0 Rover Robots.  There are many educational benefits from students being exposed to this creative and innovative approach to education.  We are teaching the future engineers and scientists in our schools and need to help supply experiences to keep them competitive with other students around the country.  Reprogrammable Robots will help expose all students to higher level thinking within technology. 

 

Our Mission:   It is the mission of the Bullard Elementary School District Educational Foundation to support and recognize innovative programs that offer hands-on experiences for students. We will work with the community to increase capital improvement, technology and instructional programs for public education.

The foundation's role is to fund elements of education that the County, State and PTSA are unable to provide.   We would love to have more help and support from our Bullard community  in the form of donations, corporate sponsorship, volunteers, committee members or board participation.  This year we will work towards earning money for listening stations for primary classrooms, iPads for each classroom teacher, and educational apps to download on  the iPads that were funded last year!  If you would like to volunteer with the Bullard Foundation, please email us at bullardfoundationpresident@gmail.com.  Please visit our website,  http://www.cobbk12.org/bullard/Bullard_Foundation.aspx
