Upcoming 8th Grade Events

Attention 8th grade parents, below is a quick list of 8th grade events and activities that are planned for the remainder of the school year.

8th grade events


Oratorical Contest Winner

This past March, Jeremiah Jackson-Gillian competed against other Cobb County middle and high school students in the Annual Optimism Club Oratorical Contest. He wrote and practiced his speech with dedication and commitment. This was his second year to compete. His goal was to place among the top students. As he took the stage he had laser focus and did his speech with great passion. Jeremiah did a fantastic job and placed second! He will be going to state level to compete.


Writing: Going from Good to Great

We are thrilled to share an exciting opportunity with you! As part of an integrated school-wide effort to focus on writing, we are offering a 5-week intensive writing workshop that Pine Mountain Middle School has developed to help our students who scored proficient on last year's Milestones so that they extend their skills even further. This workshop will occur March 5- April 12. The goal of this special class is to move these students to the next achievement level on this year's Milestones.

We are also providing specialized instruction through our REACH class that focuses on students who have high reading inventory scores and lower writing scores on the Milestones. In addition, all students are receiving focused writing support in all content areas through implementing the RACES writing strategy. We want our students to be as successful as possible with their writing skills. It is our hope that these specfic interventions at the school level will assist our students in meeting this objective. For questions about the RACES writing strategy please contact your students ELA teacher. For more information about the writing workshop, please contact Mrs. Marranda Edwards.

Intramurals at PMMS

Did you know that our PE department offers intramurals everyday to students before school from 8:15-8:50 (except FLY Fridays)? Students should be dropped off outside the gym doors no later than 8:15am. Check out coach Folsom's blog to find out what activity is taking place this week.


Feedback Wanted

We need your help! Each year the Georgia Department of Education sends out a survey to the parents of the schools in Georgia to get feedback. A lot of people don't know that the results of the survey are actually used to help determine part of our school's CCRPI score. Last year our score was 69.4. We are working hard this year to try and improve our score, and we need your help by taking the survey for this year. The Georgia Parent Survey contains 24 questions. Parents may complete the survey using their personal computer, smartphone, or tablet. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. The Georgia Parent Survey is also available in Spanish. Parents may select the Spanish version within the survey. Click here to take the Georgia Parent Survey.  Thanks for your help in continuing to make Pine Mountain Middle School a great place for our kids to learn!

Cobb Schools to Roll Out New Parent Portal in January

During the October 18 Board of Education meeting, Cobb County School District leaders discussed the January launch of a new parent portal—CTLS Parent—that will show parents what their child knows and provide resources to help their child master other content areas. Initially, CTLS Parent will roll out to a select group of schools to serve as a proof-of-concept. The District will collect feedback from parents and teachers before CTLS Parent is expanded to all schools. Click here to read more.
