Parents and friends of Cousins Middle School, as we enter into the second semester let me remind you of how important it is to make sure that your child is at school every day of the week. As you know, the highlight for this semester will be the administration of the new Georgia Milestones, which will take place during the month of April. Our teachers have been preparing your child all year for this important assessment and will continue to place a strong emphasis on activities that will ensure that all students are ready. Please remember the role that you play in supporting your child as you encourage them to always do their best. More information will certainly follow relative to this new test and but please feel free to contact your child’s teacher for more specific suggestions and information as we enter the second semester.
Our kids have also been busy during the first semester earning various awards and recognitions outside of the regular academic day. Additionally, athletic events continue as we prepare to enter the basketball and wrestling seasons. Staff development activities have continued for staff as they recently participated in the district-wide meetings as individual schools with two additional days scheduled for the second semester.
Finally, please know that we sincerely appreciate your support each and every day. Your children deserve the very best from our school and also from you as parents. The effort that we make in working together for children will definitely yield rewards for you as parents and also for them in their future endeavors.
Again, thank you for your ongoing support.
