Thank you Parents and Community for honoring our teachers this week with your notes of thanks and gestures of kindness.  We appreciate your generosity and partnership with us in educating our students.

Information on Summer School Registration is available.  Please review the promotion criteria and check the status for your child.  If you have not had a face to face conference with your child’s homeroom teacher, please schedule one by emailing the teacher.

In order to earn promotion to the next grade level, the student must meet all of the following criteria: (1) Pass math, English/language arts and one additional core subject for the year or demonstrate minimum proficiency on the appropriate state-adopted assessment in math, English/language arts and one additional core subject. (2) Earn a combined overall passing average for all scheduled courses for the year; and (3) Demonstrate an appropriate level of reading comprehension as measured by Lexile score.

Please remind students we still have our third Reading Inventory, Math Inventory, Student Learning Objective Assessment, Unit Assessments, quizzes, projects, classwork, and homework.   In other words, state testing has been completed but school is still in session through May 23.

Dear Floyd Family,

State Testing continues through April 20.  Please ensure all students are present on time each day!  Please review page 29 of the AGENDA book to see last year’s Milestones scores and commit to improvement this year.  Please read here about the Georgia Milestones.  Students in 6th and 7th grades will take the assessment online.  8th grade students will take the assessment in paper/pencil format.  Study and Resource Guides can be found here.  Each and every student needs to focus on IMPROVING his or her performance in grades, attendance, reading, writing, and math achievement, Milestones testing, behavior, and every area for total health and well-being.  Let’s do this!!

Thank you to the MANY volunteers who came on Saturday to beautify our campus inside and outside!  Please see https://twitter.com/TeresaHargrett and know that we appreciate all of the Students, Staff, Parents, and Partners who came to support us.  Pace Cetters joined Ms. Gay and Ms. Jefferson and the Gardening Club to refresh the Organic Gardens.  Ms. Mann and Mr. Brown led Student Council in painting some of our student restrooms.  Ms. Young and Ms. Lester along with Jr Beta ClubManformationPrincipal Advisory Council, and many current and former parents and students totaling over 50 refreshed our front campus.  You are ALL awesome!

Congratulations to Mrs. Jennifer SmithVolunteer of the Year!  She along with other school volunteers across the district were honored by the Cobb Schools Foundation in a special luncheon on Thursday, April 12. Mrs. Smith has served as our Floyd PTSA President for two years.

Last week was National Assistant Principal Week and Floyd has the BEST APs Around!  Please join us in letting them know.  Twyla.Hinton@cobbk12.org; Susan.Turner@cobbk12.org; Eva.Miano@cobbk12.org; Crysta.Caruthers@cobbk12.org

Floyd students and staff continue to fulfill our mission to “Perform with Excellence!”  This week Ms. Casey Baker and Mr. Nicholas Smith directed our 7th grade Band to receive an overall “EXCELLENT” rating and 8th grade Band to receive an overall “Good” rating with notable improvement from last year!  We are proud of you all!

Celebration of Nations & Social Studies Night was truly a success!! Thank you to all who collaborated and made this a wonderful stakeholder event with student leaders of Builders Club, teachers, parents, Manformation, Kiwanis, and community!!  The various learning stations were engaging for all family members, the food was tasty, and the entertaining fashion show and musical performances all completed the event with excellence!

Please remember to check your child’s report card online at ParentVue; it was released on March 21.  You can click here to access the 3rd Quarter Panther Press Newsletter.
