PACT - Parent and Child Time PACT

Starting on Thursday, September 27th, we will begin our PACT time (Parent and Child Time). Parents who support and extend their children's learning contribute to their children's successes both in school and in life. The Parent and Child Together Time component provides the opportunity for parents and children to interact together as a family unit. For the most part, the children's interests and preferences drive activities, with parents following the lead. Staff members help parents learn how to support their children's learning through interaction with each other in meaningful activities, including play.


When parent and child interact together during PACT, parents are enhancing and enriching their relationship with their child.

September is Attendance Awareness Month

With the arrival of the month of September, the Elbert County School District is kicking off Attendance Awareness Month to draw attention to this critical ingredient in student achievement.


Attendance is essential to school success, but too often students and parents do not realize how quickly absences — excused or unexcused — can add up to academic trouble. Chronic absence — missing 10 percent of the school year, or just 2-3 days every month—can translate into third-graders unable to master reading, sixth-graders failing courses, and ninth-graders dropping out of high school.
