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!

turned off upon arrival at school and remain off until the

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

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).

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)!

Cobb Proposes Becoming IE2 District
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.
