Eastbrook Middle School Vision
Our students will achieve excellence and be prepared for a successful future.
Eastbrook Middle School Mission
In order to foster in our students the ability and desire to make a positive difference in the world, our mission is to develop citizens who are prepared, respectful, open to learning, who own their choices and know they matter.
I am Eastbrook, We are Eastbrook!
We are really excited that our Eastbrook Robotics team #33222, One Giant Leap, was awarded the 2nd Place Champion’s Trophy at the Tennessee Valley Northwest Georgia State level which qualified our team for the Razorback International Invitational at the University of Arkansas on May 15-19. This was such an amazing moment. No team of students at this age in our region has ever gone on to an international event before.
We are seeking funding to cover lodging, event fees, and event materials for our trip to and from the Razorback Invitational as well as during our stay on the University of Arkansas campus in Fayetteville, AK. We have secured funding for travel and registration but require additional monies to cover these housing, event fee, and PIT materials costs. (See the attached form for more information.)
The school level Modern Woodman Speech Contest was held today at Eastbrook Middle. All 12 students who participated did an incredible job and made the judges’ decision very difficult. The winners for 2019 are Jazmine Ayabar in 3rd Place, Emily Quintero in 2nd Place, and Hunter Blackwell in 1st Place.

We had 4 EMS and 4 VPM teams working together this year from Space Camp to FLL EdCamps, Practice Tournaments and more. Of the 8 teams represented by RAIDER NATION we will be sending 6 to the STATE tournament this year. This is such a great thing for our schools and kids. Our tournament only sends 8 teams on to the next level. So we are really proud to have so many teams representing RAIDER NATION. Probably one of the coolest moments this Saturday was the spontaneous RAIDER NATION cheering that happened as teams from both VPM and EMS ran rounds on the tables and students wanted to support both teams. It was heartwarming.

In Georgia, the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement (GOSA) prepares Georgia’s State, Local, and School Annual Report Cards. The Annual Report Cards contain test results as well as other information relevant to school performance toward the goals of student achievement and school completion. The Report Card is in compliance with both state and federal laws with respect to reporting requirements. GOSA partners with the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) to produce the K-12 Public Schools Reports since much of the data comes from GaDOE.
The Georgia Alternate Assessment 2.0 (GAA 2.0) is designed to ensure that students with significant cognitive disabilities are provided access to the state academic content standards and given the opportunity to demonstrate achievement of the knowledge, concepts, and skills inherent in the standards. The Georgia Standards of Excellence and Extended Content Standards for students with significant cognitive disabilities drive the curriculum, instructional strategies, and assessment.
Whitfield County educators and community partners are helping provide teachers across the state with tools to better teach literacy. The Governor's Office of Student Achievement selected WCS to participate in a case study for the Growing Readers Program, a grant which provides high-quality professional learning to teachers on effective reading instruction. Georgia Public Broadcasting filmed lessons in two classrooms at Cedar Ridge Elementary to show how the grant is being implemented. Check out the video to see how Whitfield County Schools is making an impact!

As we continue to prepare for the 2019 Georgia Milestones, the GaDOE has developed Technology-Enhanced (TE) Item Examples for our students in grades 3-12. To get our students ready for this type of assessment, the GaDOE has created a video, PowerPoint with script for teachers to review the TE items, and Score Descriptions for teachers to use with students.
