Progress Reports went home Friday.  If you would like to schedule a conference, please make sure to contact your student’s counselor or teacher. 


Also PTA is sponsoring the “No Fuss Fundraiser” to alleviate students and parents selling items but still reaching the fundraising goal.  Forms were sent home.  They are available online.  The homeroom that has the most will be given a pizza party.


If you would like to join PTA or to contact a representative here is their information:  Renee Porter, President, Cris Fuller, Vice-President, Cleva Gaines, Secretary, Paula Underwood, Treasure, Kelvin Lucas, Watch D.O.G.S. & Cougar M.O.M.S. Coordinator zgtmmdogs@gmail.com

Lets also remember the information from the parent engagement night.  Students always have some sort of homework even if it hasn’t been assigned by teachers.  They can complete instructional hours at home by reading their text and logging it in their reading log and or completing lessons on Dreambox.  If you have questions regarding how to support, please contact your student’s counselor or teachers.


Title I packets were sent home with all Quarter I.  Please take the opportunity to read through the material outlining our continued partnership with families and the community.  Here is a presentation we would love for you to view:

Parents, a few reminders. The school day starts at 8:15 and doors are open to students at 7:45am. Students arriving earlier than 7:45am need to remain in the front of the building and are not supervised by adults. Students arriving after 8:15 are considered tardy and must be checked in by a parent. Carpool is located in the back parking lot not the circle lot in front of the building.  Agendas & schedules will be distributed to students in homebase.


The school day ends at 3:00pm and the staggered dismissal process begins. Walkers and students riding carpool will be dismissed first. Bus riding students will be dismissed once their bus arrives on campus. We are asking for your patience during the first week of school as we work closely with transportation to get kids to and from school safely.  In addition ALL check-outs must occur prior to 2:30 for the entire year.
