Mrs. Dutton Named Cobb Teacher of the Week
Elementary was surprised on Friday, August 26, 2016 with a visit
from the Cobb County Phenomenal Friday team. Students were
greeted upon arrival by the Chick-fil-A Cow and some very sweet
dogs from the Mostly Mutts rescue organization. It was an
exciting way to start our morning!
One fifth grade student, Haley Gregory, was selected to name the
teacher who had inspired her the most during her years at
Hendricks. Haley named our Target teacher, Rachel Dutton, who
was then honored as the Cobb Teacher of the Week.
