Eastside Elementary School invites you to attend the Annual Title I Parent Meeting on Thursday, September 28, 2017, from 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
School-Parent Compact for Achievement and Family Engagement/Involvement Policy
The School-Parent Compact for Achievement is an agreement that was developed by parents, teachers, and students to explain how parents and teachers will work in partnership to make sure all students get the individual support they need to reach and exceed grade-level standards. The Family Engagement/Involvement Policy is a plan that describes how Eastside Elementary will provide opportunities to improve parent engagement to support student learning.
During the next few weeks, parents of students who attend Title l schools will have the opportunity to learn more about their child's education at their school's annual Title l meeting. The purpose of the Title l annual parent meeting is to provide information to parents of participating children about the Title l program and their right to be involved in their child's education.
Whitfield County Schools is working to strengthen partnerships between schools and families. The purpose of this survey is to get your opinion on how well our schools have met your family and children’s needs and how you feel about your involvement in your child’s school. The survey will be available until Friday, September 28, 2018.
The Whitfield Education Foundation presented 35 teachers with Innovative Teaching Grants, totaling $62,000. Recipients of this grant will be able to implement various programs in their classrooms, schools and throughout the community.
The $22,000 grant allows Whitfield County Schools to implement the Lauren's Kids Safer, Smarter Kids curriculum in all elementary classrooms. This new curriculum focuses on teaching children the tools to protect themselves from abuse of any kind.
Your child's first years in school can set the tone for the rest of their academic career, so it is important to make sure they are prepared socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically to enter kindergarten. In Georgia, the GKIDS Readiness Check has been developed as an approach to thoughtfully measure the entry-level readiness skills of kindergarteners.
