Here are some headlines from the Floyd County Schools as students return to class today after their Winter Break:
Ten of the Floyd County Schools ‘beat the odds’ in 2019, having performed better than had been statistically expected on the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI), the statewide accountability system. Schools that received the designation are Armuchee Elementary, Armuchee Middle, Garden Lakes Elementary, Glenwood Primary, Johnson Elementary, Model Elementary, Model Middle, Pepperell Elementary, Pepperell Middle, as well as Pepperell Primary.
Pepperell High School has received a $6,500 Students Against Destructive Decisions grant from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety. This grant will enhance the PHS SADD chapter’s efforts to provide student input into a solution to alleviate the problem of teen driver fatalities in Georgia.
In other news from Pepperell High, the school’s Teens in the Driver Seat (or TDS) chapter attended the TDS Summit ’19 held in December at San Marcos, TX. PHS was named a TDS All-School School, the driver’s ed organization’s highest honor.
And in news from the Rome City Schools –
Rollin’ with RCS begins today! This is the day that the school system begins transporting students to and from school on new buses.
