Great job at our scrimmage on Wednesday. I was proud of our team. We were gracious hosts and fierce competitors! Now that you have all the final versions of the questions you have two jobs....
1. Memorize the questions
2. Read every book (or reread some of them to get more information)
As we found out in our scrimmage, there are many more questions out there that we haven't discovered so reading the books again will help fill in that information we don't have on our final questions. Remember, we only have FOUR more practices before our competition in January.
So far I know the dates of a few of the competitions if we move on past the Cobb competition.For you new team members, we only advance if we come in first or second in round one and two, and only advance if we win in round three. Here's what I know:
Cobb County Competition - North Cobb High School - January 17, 2015
Regional - University of West Georgia - Carrollton, GA - February 7, 2015
Divisional - Lovvinggood Middle School cobb County - February 21, 2015
State - Athens, GA - March 7, 2015
Thank you to Mrs. Nathan, Marcuzzi, and Krishnan for bringing snacks for the scrimmage. The Smail family has snack this Wednesday. Thanks for your support.
Thank you all for coming to our fall book fair and supporting our media program. All proceeds go to purchasing supplies and resources for use by Shallowford Falls students and staff. Our fair was very successful thanks to all of our generous parents.
No book fair could take place without the help from a great group of volunteers. Christy Richards and Lisa Podolski are our book fair volunteer coordinators, and we were so fortunate to have such a great group of parents volunteering their time to set up, stock shelves, help the students create wish lists, man the cash registers and take down the fair.
We would also like to thank Anne Baker for coming up with the ideas for the decorations and spending countless hours creating her vision. Thanks to Debbie Buckley's sister, Cynthia, for decorating our horses for Mrs. Angelle and Mrs. Spiva's "joust."
Thanks also to Mrs. Angelle and Mrs. Spiva for being up for anything to promote our book fair. We appreciate Kim Puckett and Lindsey Drew for being our pages and Trish Douglas for letting us invade her space and handling the sound. Our teachers were great to be so flexible with their schedules to fit the joust in with not much notice. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!
