This year Fulton County Schools introduced a new app Quick Tip(available for iOS and Android phones) to report concerns anonymously. The tool provides an easy way to “see something, say something.”

Fulton Schools Calendar Change
Last Night the School Board passed, a revision to this year’s school calendar. Here is a link to the Board item.
RNE Book Team
The Reading Bowl Book Club is available for all 4th and 5th grade students who are interested in being on the Reading Bowl Team. Each book club member will be required to read at least 5 of the 10 Georgia Book Award Nominees and meet during Bear Time. We will begin meeting Mondays after school from 2:45 – 3:30 in the media center to discuss the books on the reading list in October. Our first after school meting will be on Tuesday, October 15. In December, the students will begin competing against each other to determine which 10 students will be on the Reading Bowl Team.
Any 4th or 5th grade students who are interested should return the bottom portion of this sheet to Mrs. Wood in the Media Center by Friday, August 24.

As part of your child’s P.E. program and their comprehensive health and physical education plan, their level of fitness will be tested using FITNESSGRAM, the state mandated fitness assessment program. FITNESSGRAM is a five part comprehensive fitness assessment designed to measure cardiovascular fitness, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility and body composition. Administration of this fitness assessment will be for all students in grades 4th and 5th.
As part of this process your child’s height and weight in grades 1-5 will be confidentially measured and recorded to determine your students Body Mass Index. In grades 4th and 5th parents will receive a copy of their child’s FITNESSGRAM score report indicating their students Body Composition, Aerobic Capacity, Abdominal Strength, Upper Body Strength and Flexibility at the end of the school year. Data collection from FITNESSGRAM assessments will be used to create informed policies, programs, and curriculum and instruction decisions for K-12 physical education at the school, district and state levels. Individual student information will not be used as a part of this process.
As the parent of a minor child, Georgia law gives you the option of NOT having your child’s height and weight measured at school. If you DO NOT want your child’s height and weight to be measured please contact Caroline Maynor no later than August 31 at firstname.lastname@example.org and title the subject as “opt out”. Please make sure you include your child’s first and last name along with teacher’s name.
