community collaboration date - Cobb County School District

Parent LOV Notes
2014-2015 Issue #25
Our Motto: Excellence, Honor and Service
School Mission: To educate and build character in the total child
What’s Going on in the Building?
I first want to apologize that there has been an overlooked schedule conflict and we will not be able
to have this event until school closes. We would like your input though. Please click here to
provide the best date for this event. Please respond by Friday, April 24th. After this is decided, we
will immediately announce the new date. So sorry for the confusion and Thanks for your patience!
An overview of what the Community Collaboration is: It is an opportunity to give your input, as a
parent concerning various school topics that impact our students and our school.
It will begin in the Cafeteria. We hope to have attendance from teachers, parents and students.
During the event, we will collaborate on topics such as technology use in the school and social media,
anti-bullying protocols, HAWK TIME, CCRPI/school climate and attendance and possibly other
items that impact student achievement, school safety and/or operations. Your presence is requested.
This would be an ideal time to ask questions and get clear answers on some things that you may be
unsure about or do not understand. The administration, staff and student council will be present.
You and your family are welcome to come out for this community stakeholder feedback event. I
look forward to collaborating with you.
