Celebration of Nations

Dear Floyd Family,

Thank you for your notes and other gestures of appreciation to teachers this past week.  Educating students amidst the challenges in 2017 requires much energy and passion beyond the required certifications.  Knowing you work alongside us, together, and positively help to accomplish so much for our students.  We thank you for all you do!

I am amazed at the work of our Builders Club Leaders who successfully coordinated the first Celebration of Nations event at Floyd!  This event was absolutely STUDENT-LED!  Kudos to Kierstyn Smith, Karrington Riley,  Zoi Ladipo, Paris Lallis, Ashley Oleka, Crystal Oleka, Madelyn Keib, Tamari Stockdale, and Abigail Harris.  Builders Club is sponsored by GSC Kiwanis Advisor Ray Tiyamiyu and Floyd Parent Kimberly Smith.

Floyd’s Relay for Life Captain, Ms. Sara Folk, and I appreciate the participation in many activities throughout the year.  Floyd collectively raised $2,000 to donate to the American Cancer Society! Thank you for contributing toward a cure and advancements in treatments.

Please vote/like Zoi Ladipo’s KidTalk Video at www.kidtalkcobb.com through May 15!  She is the first ever Floyd Finalist in this annual competition!

Stay tuned for results from the Floyd Track Team and their performance at the State Meet in Augusta this weekend.  Our students made it to the podium and we are proud of them.

To all parents who served on the Eighth Grade Dance committee and created a very positive and memorable experience for the students, THANK YOU!  Your hard work will always be remembered and appreciated.

In case you did not see this earlier, Floyd made the list of schools that Beat the Odds based on last year’s state testing.  Our teachers and students work very hard inside and outside the classroom!  

Thank you for choosing Floyd!
