Nicholson Teacher Receives Cobb Schools Foundation Impact Grant!
Cynthia Pragovich was awarded the Teacher Impact Grant from The Cobb Schools Foundation.  Mrs. Pragovich wrote the grant to fund a Portable Writing Lab to provide the technology needed to meet the varied needs and learning differences of our special education population.  These portable word processors will enable students and teachers the opportunity to focus on direct writing goals without the obstacle of tedious handwriting errors and prepare students for the writing portion of the new Georgia Milestones Test.

Nicholson is a 'Steps to Respect' School
We believe bullying is unfair and one-sided.  It happens when someone keeps hurting, frightening, threatening, or leaving someone out, on purpose.  Cobb County Schools has designed a pamphlet  to help parents and students navigate the unclear roadways of behaviors that can be seen as hurtful teasing or bullying behavior.  Click here to access pamphlet.
