Parents of K-2 students will want to come to the workshop being given by Jennifer Hoyer of Academic Solutions on September 8, from 6:30-7:30 in the media center. The worshop is entitled How to Help Your Child with Math (for K-2). Be sure to put this workshop on your calendar 1
If you are a 3rd, 4th, or 5th grader and are interested in trying out for the Shallowford Falls Science Olympiad 2015 team, please see Mrs. Goodman for a tryout study guide. Parents, you may also email her at Deborah.Goodman@cobbk12.org. She will deliver the study guide to each interested child. Tryouts will be September 26th, from 2:30-3:30pm.
Remember: Science Olympiad is an academic competition. Practice and serious commitment are requirements.
For the safety of all students, walkers will now be picked up from the gym. Parents, please wait outside the gym with your car rider/walker number. A staff member will match your number with your child and will then release your child to you. Thank you for helping us keep all students safe!
We invite any 3rd, 4th, or 5th grader that DOES NOT have P.E. that day to come down to the gym for some morning fitness! We will start at 7:20 and end around 7:45. Please keep in mind that this is not recess, come ready to work!
This is an opportunity for students to get the "wiggles" out before they start their instructional day. Again, only come on the days you don't have P.E.
We are very excited and hope to see all the foxes there!!!
Whether you are new to our school or a seasoned veteran, we'd like to ask you to take some time to view our updated student handbook. This document contains many important rules and procedures for Shallowford Falls Elementary school.

Did you know there is an easy way for our school to earn money, and
it doesn’t require you to do anything more than you’re doing now, if you
currently use natural gas in your home or business?
Our school can earn as much as $60 from Georgia Natural Gas for each
household or business in our school and community, and you don’t even
need to be an existing customer. As a matter of fact, our school can
earn more if you’re with another provider, and make the switch. Do you
know who your current gas provider is?
Like other buyer-rewards programs, when you become a Georgia Natural
Gas customer, you can save up to a $0.15 per therm discount in addition
to the $5 that GNG donates every month you pay your bill. That adds up
to $60 for each new customer, the first year.
If you’re already with Georgia Natural Gas, that’s good, too. Just go online to TrueBlueSchools.com and designate our school to start receiving donations – $5 every month will be donated as long as you’re an active customer.
So, would you like to help our school earn TrueBlue dollars for our Science Teacher and Lab?
It’s easy to get started. You can go to TrueBlueSchools.com
and sign up to start earning. Either way, please remember to use the
Promo code: TRUEBLUE, so our school gets the full credit and earnings
for everyone who signs up.
