Last Thursday evening the School Board met for a scheduled work session. During that session they presented the following video to all in attendance.
Cobb County is currently under a tornado warning. Carpool is on hold until we receive an All Clear. All our students are currently in ‘duck and cover’ and are doing great. We will resume carpool once the warning has expired.
The Handbook is now online and available for viewing.
You can locate the handbook by clicking on the ‘ABOUT’ tab in the top navigation menu (above), then follow the drop-down menu to ‘KCSMA HANDBOOK’ and click there.
This Friday, August 8, 2014, we are offering a fun ‘Welcome Back to School’ surprise–our first NUT Pass of the 2014-15 school year!! If your child would like to purchase a N.U.T. Pass, they must bring in $1 and they can wear any outfit they would like.
For those new to KCSMA, N.U.T. pass stands for ‘No Uniform Today’ and it allows students to wear normal ‘street’ clothes as long as they adhere to the regulations of the dress code. No tank tops, spaghetti dresses, short shorts, etc.
Note: NUT Passes are not mandatory. If your student is not purchasing a pass, they must be in their official uniform or official Spirit Wear attire on Friday. (Spirit Wear Fridays consist of students wearing an approved Spirit Wear shirt and either jeans, jean shorts, or uniform pants, shorts, or skirt.)
We would like to recognize and send a huge THANK YOU to all of the KCSMA families and staff that volunteered their time yesterday to help clean up the grounds around the school. They did an amazing job cutting down weeds, planting flowers and shrubs, spreading pine straw and gravel, and picking up trash around the property. Here are a couple photos from the day.
KUDOS to each of you for all the hard work you put into the day. YOU ROCK!!
