COLLEGE BOUND: Nearly 30 Cass High School Magnet students attended college visits this week at Georgia State University and Oglethorpe University! Students participated in admissions information sessions and campus tours at both schools. Georgia State is a large public university, while Oglethorpe is a small private university. By visiting these schools, students were able to compare and contrast to see which size campus is a fit for them. Students also had lunch at the iconic Mary Mac’s Tea Room, where they learned some Atlanta history!

MOST PRESTIGIOUS SYSTEM AWARD: Superintendent Page and system leaders present Emerson Elementary School and its third-grade collaboration team, which consists of Linda Garcia, Amber Graham, April Lanham, and Janna Scheff with the most prestigious award given by the District, the A-Team Award! Linda Garcia, Amber Graham, April Lanham, and Janna Scheff exemplify the three big ideas of our Professional Learning Communities culture as they continually demonstrate a focus on learning, collaboration, and results. Through observations and conversations with each team member, it is evident this team uses the PLC process to work together with collective responsibility for student learning. They ensure a guaranteed and viable curriculum for all third-grade students, use common formative assessments to monitor student learning, use common assessment data to improve teaching and learning practices, and support the RTI process by providing systematic interventions and extensions for all students. It is also evident that Principal Tracy Mulkey and the Emerson Elementary School Guiding Coalition have played a significant role in the development of this A-Team. Its Guiding Coalition was mentioned many times as a source of strength for the PLC process and as the means for the professional development which resulted in the efficacy of this collaborative team. Congratulations on this extraordinary achievement! Linda Garcia, Amber Graham, April Lanham, and Janna Scheff will now present at the December school board meeting, New Teacher Institute, and serve as role models for future A-Teams throughout our school system. This is our ninth collaboration team to earn an A-Team Award!

CENTRAL OFFICE CELEBRATIONS: When you work in a school system and community like this, you have a lot to celebrate! And, if you know Superintendent Page, then you know he likes to celebrate the RIGHT WORK. In the Bartow County School System, the right work supports learning, collaboration, and results. That's what we value. Today, we celebrate and honor Beth Groom, our assessment and accountability specialist. Beth works behind the scenes to support our entire school community. She is always quick to respond to any request with a calm and confident "can do" attitude. Beth pulls together mass amounts of information in a way that you can understand and use to improve instruction. Congratulations, Beth! You make us all better!

LEAVING A LEGACY: After nine years of leading the Adairsville High School football program, Coach Eric Bishop is retiring. "It's hard to measure the impact that any one teacher has on a school, but there's no doubt Adairsville High School has been made better by the work Eric has done for the last 16 years. His influence reaches beyond football and athletics and can be seen throughout our campus. He's been a mentor, a friend, and someone many of us has sought advice from. In short, Eric represents all that it means to be a Tiger." - AHS Principal Bruce Mulkey
