Final Exam Information Letter

Congrats to both Swim & Dive squads for excellent performances at the 8th Annual Twin Challenge. For the second year in a row, the Lady Spartans defeated the Lady Lions of Peachtree Ridge in the annual bragging rights meet!

Special congratulations for our student of the month, Felix Roman. Felix’s success is extra special because, before he enrolled in late August, he was working with the construction crew on our new gym. When students returned to school in July, he realized he really wanted to be back in school. He is a great success story in our ELL program. If you have a student you would like to recognize as most improved student for December, please send me the name and reasons for nomination.

Thank you to the teachers that provided EOC reviews and Power Surge last week. We appreciate you giving your time to improve student performance. Tests continue this week in Math and Science. Please limit use of streaming videos during testing hours because it slows the network. Also be cautious of the volume in classrooms near labs as it can be disruptive to testing.

 

Let’s work on cleaning up our campus communication. Please note that designated “ANNOUNCEMENT” spaces have been established in each of our hall ways. Going forward paper announcements are only allowed in these designated spaces/bulletin boards and above our water fountains. Announcements placed in other areas will be removed. Spread the word to our students: Keep Campbell Beautiful! Scattered papers on every wall, door, column, and window do not create a visually appealing representation of Campbell.

According to the GA DOE, CHS was 1 of 8 Cobb high schools showing an increase in high school graduation rate. We climbed to 79.2 from 78.4 last year. Small incremental gains reflect our continued efforts to ensure all students achieve success.
