Spring Course Extension & Credit Recovery

In the spring we will again operate a 5th period after regular school hours.  5th period was started to assist students to catch up and graduate on time. It will run from January 23 – May 5.

There is one small change to 5th period. There is a $100 fee. We have seen the need for students to have more of a vested interest in the class. If a student is successful and passes the 5th period class they take, we will refund the $100.

On January 5, 2017, Georgia Governor Nathan Deal announced the Greatest Gains and Highest Performing School Awards. Twenty-five Cobb schools are among the 218 schools across Georgia to receive at least one of the awards. Schools earn the Greatest Gains Award with a 3-year average CCRPI Progress score that ranks in the top 7% or higher in Georgia. CCRPI Progress scores represent how much growth students demonstrate on the state assessments from one year to the next.

Overall, the state of Georgia says Kennesaw Mountain High School is earning an A grade!  The state recently released its CCRPI collaborative school review results for the year 2016. KMHS had a 1.6 point increase over our 2015 score which raises our school’s report card grade to a 91.7 for the 2016 academic year.

CCRPI stands for the College and Career Readiness Performance Index – this measures a school based on many factors including test scores, attendance and community satisfaction.

Sleighbells on the Square 5K/1K/Tot Trot

The 16th Annual Sleighbells on the Square 5K/1K/Tot Trot will be held this year on Saturday, December 10. This festive event for the whole family takes place on the Marietta Square where the 5K will start and finish. The race attracted more than 1000 participants last year, raising more than $30,000 for the Cobb Children’s Emergency Fund. The Fund provides emergency grants to Cobb County School Social Workers to help support student households facing financial emergencies or crises. The Fund provides support for Cobb families in need in areas that are often not addressed by traditional charities; assisting with utility bills, clothing, medicine, and housing in order to help local families get back on track.

Race day activities include appearances by Disney Characters and Santa, face-painting for the kids and jingle bells for runners’ shoes. Festive holiday attire is encouraged. Strollers and dogs are allowed. The 5K starts at 8:30am, the 1K at 9:30am, Tot Trot at 9:45am and the awards ceremony is at 9:50am. Free Parking is available in the parking decks around the Marietta Square.

The 5K is a chip-timed Peachtree Qualifying race. Registration is available online at Active.com. The cost for registration is $20 for Youth, $25 for Adults through November 27. $30 for registration November 28- December 8. Tot Trot registration is just $10 through Dec 8. Race day registration is $35 for the 5K and 1K and $15 for the Tot Trot. There is also registration for Phantom Runners for $30 to support in spirit and get a t-shirt but not run.
All participants who register before Nov 28 are guaranteed a long-sleeve technical t-shirt.

More information can be found on the Sleighbells on the Square page at Active.com or www.cobbcountybar.org .
