On behalf of the faculty and staff of Cousins Middle School,
let me welcome you to the 2014 – 2015 school year. I am pleased to report to
you that we had a super opening to what we hope will be a very productive year
for your child. Let me remind you that our efforts here to work with your child
are enhanced greatly by the support that you give us each and every day.
Whether your child is a beginning middle school student in 6th grade
or a veteran member of our school as a 7th or 8th grader,
let me encourage you to remain involved with your child as he or she works to
make this a successful year.
As I begin my tenth year at Cousins, I am excited to see the
great things that are happening in our district as well as at Cousins Middle
School. Our teachers are committed to making sure your year is positive and
that our students, your children, are provided with a quality education that
challenges them to reach their highest potential. We, like you, want nothing
but the BEST for our students!
Please allow me to introduce you to the members of our
administrative team. Ms. Cumming returns for her fourth year and continues to
work effectively as a leader in our school. This year, she will work with
curriculum and instruction, testing, and scheduling, among many other areas in
the operation of the school. She is excited to work in her new role here at
Cousins and we look forward to her continued contributions.
Mr. Gabriel Burnette joins our administrative team this
year, having previously worked at Sharp Learning Center, Newton County High
School, and most recently, Alcovy High School. Mr. Burnette’s primary
responsibilities will include discipline, facilities, and athletics. He brings
a wealth of knowledge to our school in the area of school administration and we
look forward to his positive, yet disciplined, approach to managing the school
environment. Please know this administrative team is here to support the
operations of the school and that we stand ready to work with you to make this
a great year at Cousins.
Finally, let me say how important it is that you work with
your child’s teacher and communicate with him or her on a regular basis. I am
confident in the ability of each member of this staff and appreciate their
commitment to being here daily and to being prepared to work with our students.
Please know that you are always welcome here at Cousins. We hope to see you
soon! Have a great year!
