A Peek at our Week - Jan. 7 - 11

Chaperone opportunities are closed at this time.  
Thanks to those of you who will be helping us on this FUN trip!
Those of you who already paid for you and your child are set for the trip.           Thank you!

Don't forget that at least half of the student payment ($165.00) is due by January 9th.  The space center requested that we send our final numbers attending to them by Jan. 9th, so it is imperative that we receive the half payment if your child is attending. 

If your child is not attending space camp, we will need to know by January 9th as well.  There will be a substitute at school those four days for students not attending space camp, and they will be expected to be in attendance.  Since daily participation grades will be given to those students attending space camp, grades will be taken on daily work for those students who are staying at school.

The George Walton Academy Counseling Department
invites you to hear special guest speaker
Ellen Carrington
as she discusses
Electronics: Helping Your Students Have Healthy Boundaries
Thursday, January 17th, 2019 at 6:30 p.m.
One of the hardest parts of being a parent is helping your student know when 
to put the electronic devices down. In this parenting program, 
Ellen Carrington will discuss teaching
your students healthy boundaries. 

R.S.V.P. to emcdonel@gwa.com

Ellen Carrington is a trained Parenting the Love and Logic Way course instructor and the parent of twin 16-year-old boys. She has taught this course for 15 years in schools, churches, and for foster parenting programs. Ellen has found the Love and Logic skills to have a positive impact on her parenting and in her work as an educator.  Ellen has 12 years of experience in leadership with middle and high school youth and has led a large variety of adult classes and retreats.  She has a Master’s Degree in Educational Ministry from Columbia Seminary in Decatur, Georgia. 


A lot of the students requested that we read
Fourth Grade Rats by Jerry Spinelli when we return from Christmas break instead of Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing.
Apparently, they read Third Grade Angels 
last year by the same author and wanted to continue with the series.
The teachers will be reading this as a "read-aloud" only during the month of January.  We will not have weekly quizzes, but the students will have an AR test at the end, 
and they will do a small book report.
If you would like to purchase this for your student, you can find it for under $5.00 on Amazon,  Scholastic, or Barnes and Noble.  You can probably download it from iTunes as well if they read books on their device.
