8/21: School-Day Extended 45 Minutes on August 21 due to Solar Eclipse
Due to the solar eclipse on August 21, 2017, the Cobb County School District will delay dismissal of elementary, middle and high school students by 45 minutes.
The peak time to experience the solar eclipse falls during our regularly scheduled elementary school dismissal time. Since student safety is always our first priority so we will delay dismissal to ensure that neither students nor employees are on the roadways during the time of the eclipse. Subsequently, high schools and middle schools will delay dismissal as well.
Schools will be provided with further guidance and instructional resources as appropriate. Parents are welcome to pick-up their child at the typical dismissal time if needed.
For more information regarding the solar eclipse visit the National Weather Service at http://www.weather.gov/sgf/SolarEclipse.
Please visit the Cobb County School District Website: www.cobbk12.orgfor further information and helpful links.

We use the Daily 5 format during our reading block. Many of the students used this in first and second grade and they are very comfortable with this format. We started a small part of this last week and hope to be in full operation within the next couple of weeks.
We are working on place value and rounding this week. We will then review all of the addition and subtraction strategies, but they love when we show them the algorithm for these types of problems!
For the first couple of weeks will jump right into Rocks and Minerals. We have lots of great hands on activities that will build the foundation for their earth science studies.
We are so excited about the new social studies curriculum. We will begin with Native Americans and how they adapted throughout the regions in our country. This unit will be full of great connections, literature and activities.
Please make sure you signed up with the Remind app. This is a great way for to remind you of quick things like field trips, picture day and other school activities.
We also use Class Dojo for our behavior management system as well as keeping you informed about what is going on in our classroom with photos and videos.
I will be updating the blog every couple of weeks. I will email this out as well as keep it on the blog for future reference.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us! We are part of the puzzle that helps these kiddos be successful!
See you Tuesday!
