Our “Stone Age” Book Fair is coming up the week after Winter Break, and we have some exciting new ways to help you buy your students the books they love!

You can now easily set up an eWallet for your student, which can help you you set a budget for your child and eliminate the need to send cash, checks, or credit cards to school with them.

You can also shop online February 17- March 2

We also still need volunteers, and this is a great and fun way to get involved with your child’s school. Just click on this link to the SignUp Genius if you’d like to help out: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70a0d4cafaa22a20-2019

Scoliosis Re-test

Cobb County School District has required Lost Mountain Middle School to re-test students in 6th and 8th grades for scoliosis. If you do not want your child to be screened, please return the decline letter. The screening will take place on February 27th.


Georgia Parent Survey - Please Respond

Please take a few minutes of your time to complete the Georgia Parent Survey; it consists of 24 questions and should only take a few minutes to complete on your personal computer, smartphone, or tablet.

We need all parents to participate because the data will be used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating, which is used as a diagnostic tool within the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI).

There is also a Georgia Student Health Survey 2.0 that your child will have the opportunity to take prior to the February break through his or her science class. Only if you choose not to have your child participate in the Student Health Survey, complete the attached opt-out form and have your child return it immediately to his or her science teacher. Thank you for your time and participation.

Harrison High school is offering a Speed, Agility, Reaction, & Quickness (SARQ) program to our current 6th, 7th & 8th grade feeder school students.

The program will be offered over a 5 week time period. During which time there will be two training sessions per week, every Tuesday & Thursday with a total of 10 training sessions beginning at 6:45am and ending at 7:30am due to facility requests.

Our primary focus will be improving stance, start, upper and lower body technique. In addition, there will be instruction focused on improving 40, 20, pro agility, and L drill change of direction movements.

SARQ Dates & information below:
Week 1: Tuesday February 26th & Thursday February 28th
Week 2: Tuesday March 5th & Thursday March 7th
Week 3: Tuesday March 12th & Thursday March 14th

The fee for the sessions would be $100.00 ($10.00 per session with a minimum of 10 sessions needed to register). The check would be made out to the Harrison High School Football Booster Club, Inc.

Attendance, Tardies, Arrival and Dismissal!

Did you know that research shows there is a direct correlation between school attendance and academic performance? Absence from school is often the greatest single cause of poor performance. Attendance is one indicator for the state scoring model for all schools called the CCRPI (College and Career Readiness Performance Index). For every student who has six (6) or more absences, our score decreases. This includes students who are absent more than ½ a school day. Now, what can you do? Of course, we want your sick child to stay at home in order to get better, but when possible, please try to make appointments to where your child is at school at least ½ of the school day. Let’s work as a team to make LMMS stay #1 in the district.

Please read the 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.
