Fair Oaks Dual Language Immersion
Cobb County students have the
opportunity to participate on the Dual Language Immersion
Program (DLI). Dual Language Immersion is a way to learn academic content while acquiring another language at the same time. The goals of the program are for the students to develop literacy skills in both English and the target language while attaining a high level of academic achievement that is at or above their grade level in all content areas and to develop a world cultural sensitivity.
Fair Oaks chose Spanish as the immersion language for the
upcoming school year.
It's a great day at
Fair Oaks when you can raise money for Science Olympiad while
taping your principal to the wall!

Superior Plumbing and the Marietta Daily Journal (MDJ) have teamed up to give a local teacher, from
Kindergarten to 12th grade, an iPad each week of the 2015-2016 school year. The first winner will be announced the week of
October 1, 2015 and then consecutively each week through the end of May, 2016.
Parents and students can go to http://mdj.secondstreetapp.com/2015_apple_teacher/
to nominate a teacher. Entries can also be submitted by visiting the MDJ online @ www.mdjonline.com and
clicking on the “Apple for Teachers” icon on the right rail. The Marietta Daily Journal staff will select a winner from the
nominations each week and present the iPad to the winner. A photo of the weekly winner with their students will
appear in the Marietta Daily Journal print and online editions.
The MDJ advises any CCSD staff who would like to participate, that they write a brief statement, 100
words or less, explaining why they think the person deserves to be one of The Marietta Daily Journal and Superior Plumbing’s
“Apple for your Teacher” weekly winners.
Questions can be directed to the MDJ in care of this email address:
