At the end of the day on Friday, we had contributed $10,600 to the American Cancer Society! Our purple feet earned over $2000 thanks to many generous students and parents. Mrs. Koenning's class collected $493 and earned the choice of either a pizza party or ice cream sundae party on Monday. We're looking forward to that. Mrs. Carstens' class came in second, and they all received color-changing Relay for Life cups. Mrs. Fields' class ended up in third and also received the coveted cups. Thank you all for making this effort so much fun as we covered the walls with purple feet to stomp out cancer!
Our school has a new system for entering the building through the front doors. With this new system, visitors need to "Buzz-In" after 8:10am starting Wednesday, May 1st. We know everyone will have many questions about the new system, so our principal has written a letter to fill you in.
Download the letter from Ms. Angelle for more details.

Our school can earn as much as $60 from Georgia Natural Gas for each household or business in our school and community, and you don’t even need to be an existing customer. As a matter of fact, our school can earn more if you’re with another provider, and make the switch. Do you know who your current gas provider is?
Like other buyer-rewards programs, when you become a Georgia Natural Gas customer, you can save up to a $0.15 per therm discount in addition to the $5 that GNG donates every month you pay your bill. That adds up to $60 for each new customer, the first year.
If you’re already with Georgia Natural Gas, that’s good, too. Just go online to TrueBlueSchools.com and designate our school to start receiving donations – $5 every month will be donated as long as you’re an active customer.
So, would you like to help our school earn TrueBlue dollars for our Science Teacher and Lab?
It’s easy to get started. You can go to TrueBlueSchools.com and sign up to start earning. Either way, please remember to use the Promo code: TRUEBLUE, so our school gets the full credit and earnings for everyone who signs up.
Today, our Principal and Assistant Principal were replaced by two students. The winners of the Principal of the Day and AP of the Day Foundation contest got to take over today at Shallowford Falls. Matthew G. was the Principal and Maddie M. was the AP. The students visited classrooms observing great instruction, read to students, performed office duties, monitored behavior in the cafeteria and discussed ideas for next year. Congratulations to both Matthew and Maddie. They were great administrators!

We are starting a new program at The Falls!! We are inviting any 3rd, 4th, or 5th grader that DOES NOT have P.E. that day to come down to the gym for some morning fitness! We will start at 7:20 and end around 7:40. Please keep in mind that this is not recess, come ready to work!
This is an opportunity for students to get the "wiggles" out before they start their instructional day. Again, only come on the days you don't have P.E.
With the help of some of the 5th graders, we came up with a REALLY cool name for this morning program. We are calling it FOX AM 720, similar to the radio station. It stands for Focus On eXercise AM (in the morning) at 7:20! We are telling everyone to "get tuned in"!!!
We are very excited and hope to see all the foxes there!!!
The Cobb School District has revised their policy on absenteeism as of August 10, 2011. It addresses unexcused absences, and offers new timelines and tips regarding student absences. Please click on the link below and take a minute to read through the new policy. We are sure you will agree that your child's success depends on his/her regular attendance at school.
