Summer Reading

The Cobb County School District is partnering again with Cobb and Smyrna Public Libraries for our Summer Reading Challenge! We challenge all students to read and log at least 1,500 minutes using Biblionasium. All K-8 students already have Biblionasium accounts and can log in with their student number and school computer password.

Reading throughout the summer for at least 20 minutes a day helps students maintain learning gains made in school and starts the upcoming new school year off right. These resources can help:

Children's Hour at the Table


Hi Still family,

Below is a message from the President and COO of HoneyBaked, Maggie Decan. The CHAT information should have been sent home in your child’s daily folder. This is a great honor for our school. Please support as you can.

“Hello to all the parents and staff at Still Elementary. On behalf of HoneyBaked, I wanted to thank you for being part of our BETA test for our CHAT program that we plan to roll out nationally next fall. Still was one of only 3 schools chosen. Our Dallas Highway location’s General Manager April Gresham LOVES working with your school. CHAT (Children’s Hour At the Table) was developed to promote families committing to eat together AT LEAST one time weekly. We hope that you will review the materials, sign the contract and get your absolutely free pound of ham or turkey slices at your nearest store (I promise NO PURCHASE NEEDED) We really want to contribute to starting off a commitment to CHAT in every family. I’d love to hear any feedback you have. Please post here. If you have some suggestions or constructive feedback that you’d prefer to share with me, you can email me at mdecan@hbham.com. We need you to help us make the program easy for schools to adopt next fall.”
