Principal's Message


Good afternoon, Spartan Families, 

As we embark on the beginning of spring, we want to ask all of our parents to please encourage your student to remain committed and strong this semester. The end of the quarter is approaching along with another grading cycle. Please continue to check ParentVue to ensure that your student's grades and attendance are as expected. 

A letter about required immunizations is below to the parents of all rising 11th grade students. 

Parents, please note that when coming to the office to check out your student or communicate with the front office staff, there is a new doorbell system.  A picture ID must be shown and there are signs to assist you. 

All parents and guardians are invited to Cobb County's Public Safety Forum on March 16, 2024, from 9 am until 2 pm. 

Message from the Attendance Office 

Excused vs. Unexcused Absences: Students are required to obtain a pass from their teacher and report to the school nurse if they are feeling ill during the instructional day.  The school nurse will contact the parent if it is determined the student should go home for the day. These absences are considered excused and coded AEC.  If a student calls/texts a parent for pick up and does not report to the clinic first, the absence from class(es) is unexcused. Students will not have the option to visit the clinic for the nurse to assess after the parent has arrived and have the absence excused.


On special occasions, such as Valentine’s Day, all early checkouts will require a doctor’s excuse to have the absence coded excused. We encourage all students to remain in school for the full day unless they are not feeling well. We want to limit early checkouts and maximize instructional time.

 Parents are reminded that students should not be dropped off before 7:30 AM unless it has been requested by a teacher or coach and they will remain with that adult. Students are also expected to leave the building no later than 4 PM unless they are under the supervision of a teacher or coach. 

Best regards,
Dr. Watkins

Please help congratulate Zaria Williams. She made the Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA) staff. This is a tremendous accomplishment because the competition is so tough.  She will be traveling all summer teaching at Varsity Brand cheerleading camps. We hope she will be our instructor when we go to cheer camp at West, GA this summer. We are all extremely proud of her. Campbell Cheer continues to do BIG things!!!! 

The Boy's Lacrosse team, Coach Colter, and the parent volunteers spent Sunday working with Smyrna Elementary Foundation to clean up their gardens.


Hamza Jaafar earned 1st place in the category of 3D Modeling at the Georgia Student Technology Competition on March 2. His entry was inspired by a personal project last summer to make a suit of chain mail, which quickly proved extremely tedious. Using SOLIDWORKS, he created the model of a tool that could simplify that process. He also won a $250 scholarship for the top senior in each category. The GASTC has been showcasing skill and innovation in technology among Georgia students since 2001.

The team would like to give a big shout out to Sam Hodge with Protein Partner (https://proteinpartner.com) for investing his time to help train the poultry team. The students not only learned many aspects of the poultry industry, but also had a blast working as a team. Great job team!

Aubrey Wright competed in the FFA Creed Speaking competition on March 5th at Calhoun High. She got to put her public speaking skills in action and related her personal life to the almost 100 year old FFA Creed. She earned 4th place out of ten contestants. Way to go Aubrey!
