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.

Don't Let Bullying Go Unnoticed
On Thursday, January 16th, Ms. Metcalfe introduced a new Bullying Incident Report form to the student body.  We will conduct three more lessons on bullying prevention during the rest of this school year.  Please contact Dr. Daniel with questions or for more information about bullying prevention. You can also click on the link to the left to learn about more school district resources.  Please help us make McClure a bully free zone.  If you are aware of a bullying situation, please download the form and return it to an adult at school.

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.

BYOD Has Arrived at McClure!
If you weren't able to attend last week's BYOD/Common Core meeting you can download the PowerPoint presentation and learn more at the new BYOD Resource page.

Performing Arts
The purpose of the Performing Arts program is to provide opportunities for our students to experience uniquely rewarding performing arts that might otherwise be unavailable to them. We try to spark curiosity, broaden awareness of the arts, stimulate minds and emotions. The program is entirely dependent on your donations. For more information, please visit the Performing Arts program's website.

Need to ride a different bus home?
If your student will be riding home with another student there are some important guidelines that must be followed. All bus changes must be approved through the attendance office before a student will be allowed on a different bus. More Details.

Teacher of the Year
Mr. Ryan Limpert
6th Grade Science Teacher

Congratulations to Mr. Ryan Limpert our 2016 TOTY. Professor Limpertstein can be found rapping about earth science or helping an avid group of future meteorologists learn the difference between cumulous or cirrus clouds on a daily basis in the 6th grade. One thing is for sure, he is always working hard to make sure that his students are prepared for the challenges that lie ahead!

Congratulations Ryan on being a model for all of our teachers!
