During week two of Cobb Schools’ partnership with MUST Ministries, the District and non-profit have built a long-term solution to provide students with a 5-day supply of breakfasts and lunches at 8 school locations on Mondays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The first day of the meal distributions will be Monday, March 23. 

The school locations selected for the meal distributions include schools with more than 50% Free and Reduced Lunch populations. 

Cobb Schools Food Service staff will make the food as it is provided by the District and MUST volunteers will distribute to students curbside. The meals can only be served to Cobb County students under 18 years of age, and students must be physically present.  

The weekly breakfast and lunch distributions can be sustained through the rest of the 2019-2020 school year or until Cobb Schools re-opens. However, MUST needs volunteers to help by giving food donations and to sign up here to help with food distributions at schools. Please join us as we help our community in need. 

 Breakfast and Lunch School Distribution Locations from 11 am – 1 pm:

·       Acworth Elementary 

·       Bryant Elementary 

·       Campbell HS 

·       Compton Elementary 

·       East Cobb Middle 

·       Garrett Middle  

·       Osborne High  

·       Riverside Intermediate 

The new school locations will replace sites where food boxes were provided this week.

Pirate Family,

The Georgia Department of Education released the 2019 College and Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI) scores today. Congratulations to our Pickett's Mill Pirates for our 91.4 CCRPI score. Our score increased by +1.3 points from the previous year! 

Our CCRPI score of 91.4 places Pickett's Mill 13th out of the 68 elementary schools in the Cobb County School District. CCRPI scores are comprised of several components including content mastery, progress, closing gaps, readiness and school climate. We are especially proud of our content mastery score of 88.5 and our perfect score of 100.0 on progress, which measures the growth demonstrated by our students from year to year on the Milestones in ELA and Math, as compared to their peers in their grade level from across the state.

Congratulations to our feeder schools; Durham Middle School, who raised their CCRPI score +3.4 to a total of 87.9, and Allatoona High School, who raised their CCRPI score +2.1 to an overall score of 91.8. We are proud of our Wildcat and Buccaneer feeder schools!

This is a special community and we are honored to have the chance to educate your children, while providing them with a great experience here at Pickett's Mill!

Thank you to our Partners in Education!
