A Cherokee County School District school has won a State award for family engagement!
Teasley Middle School was named a winner in the Family School Partnership Competition sponsored by the Georgia Department of Education as part of Family Engagement Month.
For the contest, schools statewide were charged with creating a virtual gaming opportunity that encourages families to engage in their children’s learning at home together in a fun way. Winners were named for Georgia’s three regions: North, which includes Teasley MS; Middle and South. Teasley Middle School, which is led by Principal Kathie Monti, entered its “TMS Level Up 2021” curriculum engagement program. The online program was designed by Zaida Crosby, the school’s new Parent Engagement Facilitator.
“Meaningful family engagement in learning is critically important to our students’ success, and we’re so proud of Teasley Middle School and Zaida for their work that earned this recognition,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said. “Every year, all of our schools offer multiple opportunities for family engagement in learning, from the Curriculum Night programs offered districtwide to additional programs unique to each school, such as family nights for reading, math, STEM, PE and the arts. Our online resources like Canvas have made it easier than ever before for families to stay up to date with classroom learning and help their children succeed.”
Principal Monti and Ms. Crosby will be recognized by the Cherokee County School Board and Dr. Hightower at this month’s School Board meeting.
