I know that you all diligently prepared for the rehearsal after school today, so I am making it optional. You are also welcome to perform for Mrs. Mummert and Mrs. Stepp so that you can have some practice on stage and we will give you notes.
We will only go until 5:00, so if you do plan to stay, please have a ride arranged to pick you up on time. Let Mrs. Stepp or Mrs. Mummert know if there are any problems.
Thanks for being flexible and sharing your talent.

Parking Lot Safety
Safety of our students is a high priority. There have been some concerns about dismissal, traffic flow and students in the upper parking lot.
Safety of our students is a high priority at Mabry Middle School. There have been some concerns about dismissal, traffic flow and students in the upper parking lot.
To insure student safety, please follow the procedures outlined below:
• Parents may park in the upper parking lot until 4:00. After this time, the upper parking lot will become a one-way, direction out only egress to ensure greater safety of students walking in the parking lot in route to their parents’ car. No other cars will be allowed in at that time.
• After 4:00, parents must proceed to the pick-up line that goes down the turn-around to pick up their students in front of the building. This increases the number of cars that can queue in the drive of the school, alleviating traffic on Jims Road.
*Please do not double park in any parking area.
• Please proceed to the stop sign to pick up your student and do not load before the cross walk in front of the school. This will eliminate cars passing in the pick-up line.
• Students may only load in front of the school in the designated pick-up line.
We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.

Be There Campaign:
Cobb County has teamed up with thirteen other metropolitan school districts to promote the Be There campaign sponsored by WSB-TV.
The purpose of this campaign is to promote parent involvement in school. Studies have shown that when you connect with your child everyday, your child benefits for life. When he or she knows you care and are concerned about education, the following occurs:
- Achievement in school improves; students earn higher grades and test scores and enroll in higher-level programs
- Children want to go to school
- Courses are passes, credits earned and students are promoted to the next grade
- Self-confidence improves
To learn more about the Be There campaign, please visit their site:
