Big Thank You Campaign

The LMMS Community kicked off it's Big Thank You 2014 campaign partnering with Q100 Atlanta's Big Thank You. Each year, thousands of servicemen and servicewomen spend Thanksgiving overseas defending our freedom. The Big Thank You is our opportunity to show gratitude to their dedication and sacrifice, and what better way to kick it off than celebrate with one of our own soldiers from the LMMS Community? Stay tuned for Big Thank You instructions and information coming out in September.  Last year we submitted over 900 letters from the LMMS Community ... lets make this year top 1,000!

Electronic Devices

All personal electronic devices (cell phones, tablets, iPod’s, PSP’s, etc) must be turned off upon arrival at school and remain off until the school day ends. Students may not display or use any electronic device during the school day unless designated for a learning task by a teacher in their class on a specific day. Any device seen or heard during the school day will be confiscated and turned in to the main office. Repeated violations constitute insubordination resulting in progressive disciplinary consequences. The confiscated item will only be released to the parent or guardian. Parents may pick up electronic devices after 4:15 p.m. on the day the item is collected and any day thereafter
during regular office hours (8:15 – 4:45).

Student Attendance

Please read the attached student attendance policy!

Lost Mountain has partnered with the Daily Grind to introduce a fantastic new way to show teachers how much we appreciate them. Please encourage a teacher today. Buy them a lunch credit and they will know how much you really appreciate them. They will get a tasty lunch delivered to their school and the program will add $1 to a gift card of their choice. Very Important: Leave a note on their board and make their day (they will get this note emailed to them)!

Visit Teacher's Lunch Box to treat a teacher and learn more about this exciting new community partnership.

Cobb Proposes Becoming IE2 District by June2015

State law requires all Georgia school districts to choose a framework for leading and operating schools. The Cobb County School District currently saves almost $44 million annually through state waivers no longer available after July 1, 2015, unless a contract is developed to become either a charter system or an Investing in Educational Excellence (IE2) system. The Cobb County Board of Education will take up the IE2 proposal at its Sept. 2014 meeting.
