Hello Lewis families!  I hope that 2015 is off to a great start for you and your student!  Thanks to each of you who have joined us for any of our recent events.  We had a great time at our Pizza Bingo night, our Watch DOGS Donuts for Dads event, and our recent restaurant nights.  I look forward to seeing you at our upcoming PTSA meeting followed by “Engineering Night” on February 12th starting at 6:45 p.m. in the Cafeteria.    

I ask that you consider getting involved in one or more aspects of our PTSA.  Our PTSA officers, Committee Chairs and event volunteers have done a wonderful job this year, but we can always use more help.  Feel free to contact me to find out how YOU can get involved. 

I continue to remind you of the importance of having your child at school every day and being on time every day!  We are coming up on “crunch time” as our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders look towards taking the new Georgia Milestones Test in just a few short months.  We are working diligently to provide sound, solid instruction in order for our students to be successful, but we always need your help and support. 

CCRPI (College and Career Readiness Performance Index) is a comprehensive school improvement, accountability, and communication platform for all educational stakeholders that will promote college and career readiness for all Georgia public school students.  Parent surveys are one factor in developing the rating for our school.  Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis.  Data results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online.  The URL address for the Georgia Parent Survey is posted below.  I ask that you please take a few minutes to complete this survey.  There are 24 questions and will help us in planning.  This link is also posted on our school webpage as well as teacher blogs.  The survey can be translated into Spanish as well.  The link is

 Thank you for your support and feel free to let me know if I can assist you or your child. 

Yours in Education,
