Principal's Message

To the Community of Eastbrook Middle School, The 2018-2019 Eastbrook school year looks to be a challenging and exciting year. The leadership team and faculty at Eastbrook created a new vision, mission and beliefs for our school in May 2018. These statements will serve to guide us this year. I am most appreciative that the faculty created these items in student friendly language and with the best interest of children in mind. This year we will continue to modify our Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program in an effort to establish a climate in which appropriate behavior is the norm. It is still our desire to provide evidence-based behavioral interventions to help students achieve success in social, emotional and academic areas. In the year 2017-2018, the school experienced a marked decrease in out-of-school suspensions and were recognized by the State School Superintendent for improvements in PBIS. Eastbrook was the only middle or high school in Whitfield County to garner this distinction. Our state report card, CCRPI, has steadily improved as our faculty continues to have higher expectations in their classrooms as they increase the levels of rigor. Whitfield county received a 3.5 million dollar grant to enhance the literacy of our students in K-12. Eastbrook will receive monies over the next two years to push literacy in all content areas. Reading and writing are fundamental skills and are crucial to the advancement of our students’ progress and building a great community.

Last year was a stellar year in athletics with wins over Dalton in football, basketball and wrestling. Our teams were league winners in girls cross county, wrestling and girls soccer and runner-ups in boys basketball. This year, girls volleyball will be in its second year and we plan on adding archery this year. In our first year of robotics, our team placed 6th in the state of Georgia. Our play, Doo-Wop Wed Widing Hood, was very successful and enjoyed by staff, students and the community. Our extra-curricular events and teams continue to be successful and points of pride for the school. As a principal, father and grandfather, I would highly recommend you encourage your child to become involved in band, art, cheerleading, drama, academic team, robotics or athletics. I would also encourage you to set a scheduled time every day for homework or silent reading. Multiple studies have correlated reading ability and success. Just as students need to practice a musical instrument or a sport to be successful, they must practice reading. Please take the time to either read to your student or have them read to you 15-20 minutes daily. As American families continue to stay incredibly busy, setting a family time to read together will allow you and your child to interact in an academic manner whether the reading is the Bible, a magazine, newspaper, or a novel. Your student will reap the long term benefits associated with being a great reader. There are many ways to get involved at Eastbrook and we encourage student and parent participation. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call me at school, 706-278-6135. Dr. Gregory Bailey
