Dear Floyd Family,

I hope you are all enjoying Winter Break and the extra quality time with our children.  We look forward to all students returning to school on Monday, Feb. 26 with a focus on learning and a mission to “Perform with Excellence!”  Third quarter is moving rather quickly and we will be upon state testing in April very soon!!

As we have encouraged all students all year, 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.  Please examine page 29 of your child’s AGENDA book to see his/her recorded progress.  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.

Floyd encourages you to familiarize yourselves with the Duke TIP Talent Search Program for our 6th and 7th grade students. Participants in the Duke TIP Talent Search identify academic strengths, develops abilities and interests, and celebrate academic achievements. Additionally, some students will be eligible to take the ACT or SAT practice test while in the program. Duke TIP also provides a number of beneficial programs and seminars for the selected students. If you have any additional questions, please email our Gifted Coordinator at Laura.Thomson@cobbk12.org.

School safety continues to be a major concern for all of us.   We certainly feel compassion for all victims and communities that have suffered loss and unimaginable violence.  In an effort to prepare staff and students for multiple situations, we practice a variety of drills throughout the year.  Some safety drills are announced and some are unannounced.   We will have an increase in unannounced drills prompted by the district providing immediate feedback to schools on preparedness strategies.

On a lighter note, I will leave you with an opportunity to explore an exciting activity for your students.  Teen Forum is sponsored by the Marietta-Roswell Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc.  It will take place on March 17 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Lindley Middle School, 50 Veterans Memorial Highway SE in Mableton.  Parent sessions will be provided as well as those for middle and high school students.

Please view a short video highlight from the Financial Literacy Tour on October 25 as part of Operation Hope.  Also, check out coverage from Career Day on December 15.

Respectfully Submitted,

Dr. Teresa W. Hargrett

Principal

Dear Floyd Family,

Having extra time is always a gift and we hope our students have used this gift to continue their reading, practice writing and math, and study science and social studies in preparation for their next assessments.  Parents, please remember to view your child’s Agenda Book and check to ensure that page 29 is updated.  This page is the “Panther Progress Check” where quarterly grades, reading inventory, math inventory, Lexiles, attendance, and Milestones scores are maintained.  Please discuss the plan for improvement with your child as well as the PROMOTION CRITERIA   in section C.

Please stop by the Austell Road Chick Fil A (3951 Austell Rd, Austell, GA 30106) to see the holiday decorations by Ms. Lisa Collins and the Art Club!  Ms. Collins was interviewed by Fish 104.7 on Dec. 2 and they praised her 27 year work at Floyd and 8 years of decorating the Austell Chick Fil A!   If you were a part of her decorating team, thank you as well!

PTSA Update
