WE HAVE A WINNER: The Bartow County School System Teacher of the Year is Michael Kobito, Woodland High School teacher and band director! Congratulations to our runners-up, Natalie McPherson and Katie Hamilton! What wonderful representations of the BCSS!
Point of Pride Student: Colby Hoover, son of Daniel and Bonnie Hoover, was selected as the Point of Pride student for Pine Log Elementary because he displays a high level of integrity. Colby is courteous and tender-hearted. He truly cares about his family, is respectful to his teachers, and is also a good friend to his classmates. Colby has a strong work ethic and is willing to make sacrifices to accomplish his goals. This was evidenced by how hard he has had to work – twice – to catch up after being out for health reasons. Not only did he catch up by working at home and coming in early to work during office hours, but he has also excelled in all his subjects so far this year. We appreciate Colby's optimism and perseverance in our school.
Gracelynn Angel, daughter of Amanda Peppel, Justin Angel, and Cody Thomas, was selected as the Point of Pride student for Pine Log Elementary because she displays a high level of integrity. Gracelynn is a hard worker. Not only does she work hard to reach her academic goals, but she takes time to help her teachers and fellow students when needed. She always keeps a positive attitude which is uplifting to those around her. Gracelynn is very friendly and kind. She is easy to get along with, and she also notices when students are left out and sits by them. No wonder she has a lot of friends! We appreciate Gracelynn's positivity in our school.
Point of Pride Student: Travis Greene, son of Trent and Faith McMurtrey, was selected as the Point of Pride student for Pine Log Elementary because he displays a high level of integrity. Travis is a hard worker who is not afraid to be wrong and therefore takes academic risks which help him to learn more than he would otherwise. He is easy-going and has lots of friends. Travis thinks about others and has even bought ice cream for the whole class on multiple occasions. He is also very humble and someone you can count on whether you are his teacher or his friend. We appreciate Travis's pluck and generosity in our school.
Pine Log Elementary School earned the title of District STEM Certified.

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!!!!!!!! Many of you asked when we would sell more of the "Slice the Price Domino Pizza Cards", It starts today!!!! For $10 you get unlimited usage of "Buy one Large Pizza, get one Free" until June 30, 2022 (I used my last one all the time and it paid for itself the first time, but you can use it every day if you want until June 30th). ALL PROFITS GO TO UPGRADE THE PLAYGROUND!!!!!!!! We will also give a pizza party to the class that sells the most. Our goal is to sell 500 cards as a school, this will give us the funds for the playground upgrade. This is a very popular fundraiser because it involves pizza!!!!! Thanks, in advance, for your support. We try to find something that is reasonably priced and can be useful. Out of town family members can also buy online. This link tells you where all the card is valid at (every county around here but Gordon County for some reason and in many other states it also can be used). https://slicethepricecard.com/map Here is a video also explaining how it works. https://slicethepricecard.com/day1
