Our first Book Fair of the year will be held November 16th – 20th, which is the week before Thanksgiving Break, and it’s going to be a MONSTER of a fair!

We are in need of volunteers for a variety of tasks to get the book fair set-up, and then help running the fair.  If you are interested in helping, please contact Mrs. Messinger in the Media Center (lisa.messinger@cobbk12.org).

No experience necessary, just a willingness to have fun!  Whether you’re able to give a lot of time, or just a little---we’d love to have you on our team!  Looking forward to seeing you at the Book Fair!

Nicholson Students Meet Author, Diane Z. Shore
Once again, Cobb EMC is providing an author visit for Nicholson students as part of their annual Cobb EMC Literacy Week.  On Monday, October 26th, Georgia children's author Diane Z. Shore will be at Nicholson doing presentations for all grade levels.  Diane writes puzzles and games, picture books, chapter books, early readers, historical fiction, non-fiction, and poetry.  She has appeared on Good Day Atlanta and was dubbed "the up-and-coming children's author in Georgia".  We feel very fortunate to have her come to our school.  If your child would like an autographed copy of one of her books, order forms will be sent home during conference week or download a copy below.
