Get acquainted with Melissa Hamel, one of our new teachers this year!
 
Ms Hamel teaches small group Special Education for Kindergarten through 3rd grade. She graduated from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor's in Special Education and later graduated from UGA with a Masters in Special Education. This is her first year teaching and she loves being at “The Hill.” She  lives in Roswell but loves to go to Hilton Head whenever there is a day off from school! When she is not at school, she can be found playing with her sweet puppy, Tucker.

Ms Hamel was also named Staff Member of the Month for November!

Welcome to The Hill, Ms Hamel -  we're glad you're here!


Georgia Tech Inventure Prize Competition

Inventionstudio

Good luck to our 3 Cheatham Hill finalist teams in the Georgia Tech Inventure Prize competition this Wed., April 1st.  The 4th Annual Inventure Prize competition will be televised on GPB at 7:30 p.m. There are four Cobb County elementary school Target classes piloting this program for Georgia Tech this year.  The top 3 teams from each school were determined in February at local competitions.  

Twelve teams will compete against each other this Wednesday with one team being named the winner for the elementary division.  Our very own Maya Cramer will be one of the students to present the award to the 1st place college-level winner. We are very proud of our Cheatham Hill teams and their innovative thinking!

             Coldcrew

Team Cold Crew:  Jacob Foster, Hayden Miller and Fernando Kirkconnell

Problem:  Ice cream melts too quickly when it is warm outside and no one likes that!

Device:  A “coozie” for ice cream that will help keep ice cream colder and firmer for longer than a normal cup or bowl using a double-walled cup with rubbing alcohol and water that can be frozen.  It also has a lid that will help trap the cool air.

ShrinkyBinky

Shrinky Binky:  Jessica Gordon

Problem:  Prolonged use of a pacifier may lead to orthodontia issues, speech problems and ear infections.  This device solves this problem.

Device:  A pacifier that has an innovative “shrinking” nipple that will help wean babies and toddlers off of their pacifiers. 

TeamScarpe

Team Scarpe:  Reagan Krueger, John Marino, May Cramer

Problem:  No one likes to have a shoe slip up on their heel.  Did you know that 60% of people have one foot larger than the other?  Shoe sizes do not consider this this fact.

Device:  A built-in tube in the shoe that leads to a small bladder in the back of the heel that can be inflated so that it can correctly fit the foot.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
If your student is in a BYOD classroom, please review CCSD's Internet Acceptable Use Policy, click here.


Please note:

Effective September 7, 2010, students will not be permitted to return to classrooms after 2:45 pm to retrieve forgotten items such as homework, lunch boxes, book bags, etc. Teachers may leave the campus at 2:45 pm, therefore sending students to rooms without someone present is a concern for our staff and for the security of our students. Please be advised that ASP workers and custodians will no longer be able to unlock classrooms for parents or students. Until students become acclimated to this procedure, we will provide daily reminders on the afternoon announcements.
