learn in Spanish class. The
club will meet twice per month, on 2nd and 4th
Mondays from 2;30-3;30 in Sra. Tansey’s class (Rm. 404). We
will learn more about Spanish speaking countries, play games, do
crafts, make “Spanish word of the day” videos for the rest of
the school, play out dialogs, act out stories in Spanish and
more. The students will have to be picked up outside KEMP at 330
or go to ASP for the normal fee. If they are interested in
participating please complete the form below.
If there is enough interest, I will announce the first
meeting at school and by email or text. If you have questions,

CCSD Bus Routes
for the 2014-2015 school year are now available on the CCSD
website. Runs and maps will be posted at your local school
for review prior to the first day of school.
Kindergarten and First Grade students along with their parents
are invited to ride the bus August 1, 2014, as a practice run
prior to the first day of school on Monday, August 4. Buses will
run at regular scheduled morning pick up times and
parents/students should be at the bus stop at least 5 minutes
early. Due to limited space, we ask that you limit the
number of additional family members riding. Only
school-age children are allowed to ride as our regular buses are
not equipped with car seats. The bus will follow the planned
route to school, then return back to the bus stop.
During the months of August and September if temperatures reach
90 degrees or higher students may bring water in containers with
a screw on lid to drink on the bus.
If you have any questions, please contact the Transportation
Department at 678/594-8000, or email your transportation area
supervisor whose email can be found on the Transportation
