The Big Thank You!
Every single soldier deployed outside the United States deserves to receive a letter of gratitude on Thanksgiving Day. We want to give our troops a “Big Thank You” with a little taste of home this Thanksgiving.  Over the past several years, The Bert Show community helped to express a BIG THANK YOU with over a million hand written letters of thanks to every serviceman and woman deployed outside the United States.  Click on the image above for more details.  We will collect letters in the Wing Atrium through next Wednesday, October 26th. Thank you in advance for your support.

Red Ribbon Week is October 23rd-29th
Red Ribbon Week is an alcohol, tobacco, and other drug and violence prevention awareness campaign observed annually in October in the United States.  It was started in the 1980’s to honor the sacrifice of undercover DEA Agent Enrique Camerena who died while investigating a multimillion dollar drug ring.

Each day next week will have a different theme, we encourage all of you to take part!

·      Monday: Take a stand against drugs, there will be a sign in the cafeteria for you to sign

·      Tuesday: Sock-it to drugs (crazy sock day)

·      Wednesday: Wear red day

·      Thursday: I'm drug free ( spirit wear, high school or college jersey)

·      Friday: Put a cap on drugs (hat day)

Conference Week
Conference week is October 17-21.  Dismissal will be daily around 2:15. All students need to go home on the bus at 2:15 or be picked up as a car-rider at that time.  We will provide a study hall for students who have a conference after 2:15 on the day of their conference only.

Tutoring During Conference Week
Morning tutoring sessions will continue as scheduled during conference week.  Due to early release times, we will not offer afternoon tutoring sessions during conference week.

Reading & Math Inventories

This year the Cobb County School District will utilize the Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI) College & Career edition and the Scholastic Math Inventory (SMI) College & Career edition. The Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI) College & Career edition is a classroom-based assessment designed to evaluate students’ reading ability, monitor student reading progress, set goals for reading growth, and match students to books at their reading level. The Scholastic Math Inventory (SMI) College & Career edition is a classroom-based assessment that measures mathematics achievement and growth from Kindergarten through Algebra II. The SMI is designed to evaluate students’ mathematics performance, monitor their progress, and set goals for instruction. McClure Middle School will be administering the SRI and SMI during the months of August, December and April. These assessments are strictly diagnostic and will not count for a grade in any class.

A Public Safety Reminder about Fire Lanes at McClure 
Per the Fire Marshall's Office, no one is allowed to park in a Fire Lane, whether there is a driver in the vehicle or not, at any time other than the following:

  • 30 minutes prior to the end of the school day and 30 minutes after the end of the school day (this does not include the After School Program nor any other activity at the school)
  • passengers actively loading or unloading during the day (this would cover students unloading in the morning at the beginning of the school day)

We need to reemphasize that the only time a vehicle would be  allowed in a Fire Lane would be to actively drop-off and/or pick-up a student when there is no waiting.  Other times, such as after school activities would not be included.  If you are in violation of the ordinance, you run the risk of being ticketed. Should you have questions or concerns, please contact the Department of Public Safety (678) 594-8620.
