We’re raising money for the Kodiaks this year and need your help! We’ve made it super easy (and fun) to support us! Just shop through our Shutterfly Storefront to create photo books, keepsakes, gifts, home décor and more—and Shutterfly will donate 8% to our organization. http://nhmkodiaks.shutterflystorefront.com/
Earning money for your school is easy! This year we’re making $700,000 available to participating schools to invest in classrooms, equipment and essential supplies. For every dollar spent at Food City* using your ValuCard, one point will be earned for your school. The more points earned, the larger share of the cash your school will receive. All you have to do is link your ValuCard to your school of choice and you’ll automatically earn points every time you shop!
This school year will live forever in the pages ot the 2019-2020 Kodiak yearbook! Help your student remember friends, classmates and the fun times they had by purchasing a yearbook for them today! Purchases can be made online at ybpay.lifetouch.com with school ID #14011020. Prices start at $25 and increase throughout the year, so get yours now! ($25 special is only good for the week of our Annual Title I Open House)
Everyone’s connected to a school in some way. Maybe you work there, or have family enrolled in one, or you have a great school in your community. No matter the connection, schools and the education they provide are important, and anything that can help stretch a school’s budget allows them to provide the best education possible. Simply make a purchase of qualifying school supplies, provide your school's ID at checkout (in store and online) and your designated school will receive 5% back in credits for FREE supplies! It's a small act that can make a huge difference.
Please click the link above to view the Middle School Testing Calendar. The purposes of the Georgia Student Assessment Program are to: measure student achievement of the state mandated curriculum, identify students failing to achieve mastery of content, provide teachers with diagnostic information, and assist school systems in identifying strengths and weaknesses in order to establish priorities in planning educational programs.
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.
