Cobb Summer Reading

Cobb Summer Reading

https://www.cobbsummerreading.com/

Relax, play, and have fun this summer. Keep reading, too! By reading 20+ minutes a day, students avoid the “summer academic slide” and maintain or advance academic gains. To support summer reading and learning, The Cobb County School District’s Library Media Education Department, in conjunction with the Cobb County Public Library​, Smyrna Public Library, and Marietta City Schools​, challenges all students to read 1,500 minutes this summer.

Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher Appreciation
Teacher Appreciation Week is March 7-11th!

Let’s show our teachers are Still how much we appreciate them!! PTSA is hosting a luncheon on Thursday, March 10th, in their honor.

If you would like to do something additional, I’m sure they would appreciate it. This year, instead of requesting specific items to send in every day, feel free to use your imagination to treat them and show them how special they are with a little goodie sometime during the week! If you need some ideas, here are some suggestions:

Teachers have expressed that they love personal cards/letters/drawings from their students
$5 gift card to a restaurant, store, etc (See each teacher’s profile on the Still PTSA website)
Bring in lunch for the teacher one day (except for Thursday, since the PTSA is providing lunch that day)
Teacher Supplies (pens, pads, post its, paper clips, binder clips, etc)
Favorite snack/drink
Flowers

These are only suggestions, feel free to come up with your own idea as well.

We love our teachers at Still Elementary!!
