Principal's Corner

Principal's Corner - August

Welcome back! While the past few months seem to have flown by, our faculty and staff are excited to have students coming back and to get started teaching and learning again.

I am very proud of all of our students, families, faculty, and staff for a great year last year. We achieved gains in reading and math on the Georgia Milestones. We are currently in good standing with the state. We also achieved a 4 Star Climate Score! We are an excellent school with excellent students and excellent teachers.

We are also a schoolwide Title I school. Title I is a federal program that helps our school get additional resources to help our students succeed. We will be using the Title I funds this year to help pay for an Academic Coach, a Parent Involvement Coordinator, an Interventionist, and some additional learning resources for our students. We qualify for Title I based on the percentage of our students who qualify for free and reduced lunch. We will have our annual Title I meeting this year on Thursday, Sept. 6, at 6 pm in the gym. During the meeting, we will discuss our Title I Parent Compacts, our Title I Schoolwide Plan, and other components of Title I.

We have some new faces as we start the school year. We would like to welcome Mrs. Dietz and Mrs. Briggs in Pre-K, Ms. Crownover in KK, Mrs. Victor in 1st grade, Mr. Hewitt in 4th grade, Mrs. Harrison in 5th grade, Mrs. Hood our Academic Coach, Mrs. Smith KK paraprofessional, and Mrs. Rifenberick paraprofessional. All of our teachers and parapros continue to be highly qualified and are excited to start the new school year. If you’d like to request teacher and paraprofessional qualifications, please email me at rmountjoy@catoosa.k12.ga.us or call me at 706-866-9211.

Once again this year, your child will receive a student handbook and a Title I Parent Compact. The student handbook and compact contain many of our school policies, procedures, and expectations. Please take a few minutes to review this information and contact your child’s teacher if you have questions.

I look forward to working with you to provide an exciting year of learning for our students.
