Parent Education Opportunity

We are excited to offer two new educational opportunities to you and the members of the Floyd Middles School community!  In conjunction with Cobb County Adult Education, we are looking to begin either a GED preparation class OR an ESL (English as a Second Language) class.  In order to determine which class we offer, we first need to know how many of you are BOTH interested and able to take these classes.  If you can answer yes to both questions, please reply to this email as soon as possible so that we can begin planning a class start date!

  • Are you interested in an 8-10 week program to improve your skills in Reading, Language, Math and/or English?
  • Can you study on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6pm-8pm?

Again, if you can answer yes to both questions above, please reply to this email and answer one last question:

  • Which class do you prefer, GED or ESL?

Finally, if you’re not sure about any of the above questions, or you just want more information, please feel free to join us Thursday, September 14th in the Floyd Media Center from 6pm-7pm.  We are having an information session to answer all of your questions in person.

Power is Restored – Regular Day on 8/24

August 23, 2017 at 10:54 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Dear Floyd Family,

Power has been fully restored at Floyd Middle School and we look forward to seeing 100% of all students return tomorrow, Thursday, Aug. 24.  Thank you for your patience with our relocation process today.  Please know that the Cobb County School District responded expeditiously to the power outage and mobilized several areas of support.  Floyd teachers and staff took excellent care of all students. South Cobb High School were outstanding hosts whose efficiency made today’s situation orderly and smooth.  Floyd students were cooperative and represented their families, themselves, and our school with excellence.  Our Bus Drivers were also efficient in managing a quick return to Floyd for pickup and the alternate return home from SCHS.  Everyone, including yourselves, worked as part of TEAM FLOYD today.  We are grateful for your support.

On Thursday, Aug. 24, Curriculum Night will continue as planned at 6:00 PM.  PTSA will have a general meeting to discuss the budget at 5:45 in the cafeteria.  

The Magnet Informational Meeting will be rescheduled although some parents were able to attend today.  It will be rescheduled because all eighth grade students will attend and parents of students in sixth, seventh, and eighth grade are invited to hear the information.

If anyone would like to talk with me about today’s power outage or relocation, please call me anytime.

Respectfully Submitted and Proud to be on Your Team,

Teresa Hargrett, Ed. D.

Dear Floyd Family,

Due to recent communication regarding verification of the certified vendors supplying our eclipse viewing glasses, Floyd will be viewing the eclipse inside the building via live video streaming.  We will keep all children inside.  Although we used two certified sources (Rainbow Symphony and American Paper Optics) to supply the eclipse viewing glasses for our students, we will remain inside.  If you plan to check out your child early, please do so by 12:45.  Thank you!

  1. Classes will access https://www.nasa.gov/eclipselive-info or CobbEdTV for a live streaming video of the Total Solar Eclipse.

Please remember that students will be released later on Aug. 21 because of this rare phenomenon (5:00).

Floyd Middle Parents who are interested in serving on the School Council should email Dr. Teresa Hargrett at Teresa.Hargrett@cobbk12.org by Friday, Aug. 25.  Please provide your student’s name and grade level.  Two parent positions on the council are open for election.

A list of nominees will be shared by Aug. 28.

The Election will take place at Floyd on Sept. 19, 8:30-4:30. Parents of Floyd students will need to come to the main office to cast a vote.

Old Gym Floor

Dear Floyd Family,

 In Floyd’s 52nd year of making a positive difference in this community, we say goodbye to the old gym floor.  Great times of PE/Health, student vs. staff basketball games, music concerts, pep rallies, motivational assemblies, and more will forever sustain our memories.  Let’s look forward to a new floor in a new year!!

Happy Birthday to Mr. Earl Puckett on Aug. 12!

Please discuss with your child the information on the permission form to participate in the Solar Eclipse Viewing at school on Monday, Aug. 21.  Safety precautions are in place but it is important that participating students follow all directions of staff.  Students received a hard copy to bring home on Friday, Aug. 11 and they must be returned by Aug. 17.    Please remember that students will be released later on Aug. 21 because of this rare phenomenon (5:00).

Floyd Middle Parents who are interested in serving on the School Council should email Dr. Teresa Hargrett at Teresa.Hargrett@cobbk12.org by Friday, Aug. 25.  Please provide your student’s name and grade level.  Two parent positions on the council are open for election.

Meet & Greet on 7/27/2017

July 26, 2017 at 8:28 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Dear Floyd Family,

We look forward to seeing all parents and students attend “Meet and Greet” on Thursday, July 27, 3:00-5:00.  Once you arrive on campus, you will be able to access your child’s schedule in ParentVue.  If you already have your access code, you will proceed to login and onward with class visitation.  The same ParentVue access code from elementary school  is used in middle school.  However, if you currently do not have your ParentVue access, you will first obtain it inside the grade level computer lab.  You will need to present identification to obtain the code and you will need a primary email address in order to activate your account.

If your child attended Floyd last year and has gently used standard attire items to share with others in need, please bring them to the Parent Resource Room.  Thanks for your generosity!

Happy New Year!
