Welcome to McClure Middle School

Atlanta Braves Back to School Bash
The Braves are excited to announce their Back to School Bash at Turner Field on Sunday, July 31 when the Braves take on the Philadelphia Phillies. Arrive early for the interactive chalk art in Fan Plaza, and then head over to the pregame party in the Right Field Patio from 11:30- 1:30 for music, games, and a chance to win prizes.  Check the Back to School Bash website for details and pricing.

Ready for next year?
The start of school is just around the corner, are you ready?  Here are some helpful things for you to know:

New to the community and need to register?   Please call the front office for an appointment.  Please click on the "Enrolling Your Student" link to the left for a complete list of requirements for registration.

Meet and Greet is scheduled for July 28th.  Rising 6th graders and new 7th and 8th graders will start with a program at 12:00 in the McClure theater.  You can then take a self tour of the building and find your homeroom until 1:30.  Returning 7th and 8th graders, you are welcome to drop in and find your homeroom from 1:30 until 3:00.  Parking will be at a premium so please car pool as much as possible!

Why isn't there a supply list on our website?  There are so many different programs at McClure that it is difficult to make a practical list for you to shop from.  Teachers will share supply needs on the first day of class.  In the meantime, it never hurts to stock up on notebook paper, blue & black pens, a flash drive, and pencils- lots and lots of pencils!  Students might also find it useful to have a working email address that they can use during the school year.

Summer Hours
Beginning June 6th, we will be on a summer schedule.  We will be open from 8:00 to 5:00, Monday through Thursday.  The office will be closed daily from 11:30 until 12:30 for lunch. All district facilities are closed on Fridays during the summer.  The school will be closed from Monday, June 27th until Thursday, June 30th.

Final Report Cards for the 2015-2016 School Year
Report cards were mailed early in June. If you did not send in a self-addressed, stamped envelope you can still pick up your report card during regular office hours.

Scholastic 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 October and March. After each SRI and SMI administration, a letter will be sent home to you with your child’s results. These assessments are strictly diagnostic and will not count for a grade in any class.

A Public Saftey 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.

The Words You Should Know!
Research shows that students who have a rich vocabulary achieve at higher levels than those who do not. On questions that do not specifically test vocabulary, students are often expected to understand the meanings of the words they encounter within passages, questions and answers on sections that involve reading. But because vocabulary knowledge is useful for all reading comprehension, an increased vocabulary is not only beneficial on standardized tests, but in all content areas. (Read More)
