MyPaymentsPlus (www.MyPaymentsPlus.com) is an online service that provides families with the convenience of managing student school accounts. This system speeds up the registration process for various programs, eliminates the need to send checks to school or worry about lost or forgotten money, and ensures that your child is enrolled in all of the activities you wish for them to be involved in.
At no cost, MyPaymentsPlus allows any family to:

-Create a free, secured account to manage all of your student's accounts
-View all school-related fees and optional activities 
-Make a payment towards any student fees, or enroll in activities using an e-check, credit card, or debit card at www.MyPaymentsPlus.com.

For the 2017-2018 school year, we strongly encourage all parents (even if you do not wish to make a payment at this time) to create an account at no cost.

Learning Commons
Summer Reading Challenge

Image result for biblionasium

New this year! We will be using Biblionasium for our summer reading challenge in the learning commons (library). This challenge is not associated with the ELA required summer reading, however, students may use the minutes they read their ELA books towards the reading challenge. There will be a top reader selected for each grade level when we return for the 2018-19 school year. Top readers will be selected & based on the total number of minutes a student has read and recorded in Biblionasium over the summer break.
  
To access Biblionasium:
Click on this link www.biblionasium.com and click login with Destiny. If Griffin Middle School is not pre-populated, you will need to search for it by name. Students will then need to use their school computer login for access. Typically, the student login user name is their lunch number and the password is the one used to login to a school computer. Click on challenges and begin loggin your minutes!
Questions? Email lori.quintana@cobbk12.org


Read & Record Your Minutes!
