Parents - We Need Your Feedback!!

Each year the state of Georgia Dept. of Ed. rates our schools based on a collection of indicators. The rating is called the College, Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI) Score. Currently, our rating is tied for first in the district.

A major element of the school’s rating comes from our community feedback. Please take about 5-7 minutes to respond to 24 multiple choice questions on the Georgia Parent Survey. (We provided this survey to you at conference week via QR code.)

You may complete the survey using your personal computer, smartphones or tablet.

Individual data results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online.

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 attached student policies!

An Apple (iPad) for your Teacher

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: Anappleforteachers@mdjonline.com.

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)!

Visit Teacher's Lunch Box to treat a teacher and learn more about this exciting new community partnership.
