Parents/Guardians, Students, and Staff,
Parents, we need your assistance with encouraging your student to arrive to class on time. Students being tardy to class and skipping classes are the biggest discipline concern at Campbell HS. We know that when students are not in class that it is a safety concern, and they are not learning. The Principal's Student Advisory Council met this week for our second meeting of the year, and we decided for the second consecutive month to provide a reward to those students who arrive to each class on time. Last month, the time period was for two weeks. This time the time period will be for four weeks from October 17- November 11. The reward will be given on Thursday, November 17 during lunch time. Announcements were made to students last week, and we will continue with reminders. We ask that parents have conversations with your student about the importance of arriving to class on time especially when there are 8 minutes between each class period.    
Campbell's Theater Arts students had three exceptional performances last week for their first play of the year- Antigone. We will let you know when they have their next performance so that you won't miss.  
Thank you,
Dr. Watkins, Principal

Please let Jana.Loftin@cobbk12.org know if you have any questions.
  • Naviance is a delivery system and college/career search engine, but it also how we communicate with students, parents, and guardians, throughout the year.  Specifically:  Your college application process begins with Naviance. Every college you apply to needs to be added to your Naviance account as well; Naviance is also where juniors & seniors use to sign up for college visits, because it’s connected to the system that connects us with college admissions staff (through a system called “RepVisits”).
  • Junior Advisement.  Beginning on Tuesday, October 18th, the counselors will begin individual junior advisement meetings with students and parents.  Passes will be sent to classes each block.  It is very important for the teachers to send the students at the times indicated on the passes, so that we can remain on schedule.  Here are the fall junior advisement dates:  October 18th, October 20-28; November 7th, November 9-11.  Parents will be signing in throughout the day to come to their scheduled appointments.
