With one week left to go before our Spring Break, please go to the following google forms for how you can help prepare your student for the Georgia Milestones Testing. Answer this questionnaire as well as you can and then submit this so that I can assist you in any way with resources or suggestions to help your child be as successful as possible when undergoing testing. Thank you in advance for your dedication to helping your student become the best that he can be!
We are very excited about our upcoming Strides to Soar Fun Run! Check out some of the cool prizes we’ll be offering this year. Start saving COINS now! Our coin kick-off will take place during our opening pep rally on September 23, and we’ll have a little friendly competition to see which class brings home the First Fun Run title!
P.S…. You know it will be Mrs. Hill’s class! 🙂
Picture Day is coming to EJES! We will be taking Fall pictures on September 21, 2016. These memories will be used for the EJES Yearbook, and will be a wonderful opportunity for your child to show their dazzling smile! Information will be coming home in their blue Take Home Folders shortly, so check their bookbags. Packages will run from $11 to $46, so there is a package for everyone’s needs.
Practice those great smiles!
Parents! Join my Remind for Mrs. Hill’s class. What a great way to keep the lines of communication open for important dates and events! Follow the directions below on the flyer, and I hope to find you on my list!
EJES is excited to welcome Barn Hill Preserve’s animal education program on Thursday, August 25th for all students. Click here at this link for more information: Barn Hill Preserve
The following link has the form that must be signed for your child to attend the program: Permission form
Your child can have a picture with a kangaroo, a blue tongued skink, or a bearded dragon for a fee of $10 per picture. What a memory!
We are looking forward to a great time!
Math has changed so much since I have been in school, yet, I find it to be more interesting and fun than what I remembered! Do not be afraid of the “new” math, as it increases your student’s math understanding of number sense and this will eventually help them with more difficult concepts in the future.
I have many links that will assist your student in understanding 3rd grade Math. This will also help parents with the concepts and ideas that students practice during class, so to better help them with homework and preparation for testing.
Eureka Math: Module 1 Lessons and Videos: Module 1 Eureka Math
Math Games for Practice: Math Games
Your student also has a DreamBox account for Math that can be accessed at school and at home by visiting the Media Center link below: (type in 0 + lunch# for both username and password)
Media Center Student Bookmarks
I will continually post more links that will help your student and feel free to refer back to this page for the resources.
Utilize the following sites to help prepare for Georgia Milestones. These are great practice as they will ask questions from the Georgia Standards and try to simulate what the questions will look like when they test. Your students have been practicing during school when they have had access to a computer, so they are familiar with log-ins and passwords. They should also have a copy of all log-ins and passwords in their agenda. Encourage them to explore all subjects: ELA, Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies so they can test their knowledge. This will also let them know what areas they might need to “brush-up” on. Most of these sites can be found on our EJES website in the Student Bookmarked page. Use the following URL: EJES Student Bookmarked Page

The time is here for your student to show what they have worked on all year! This is the Georgia Milestones! Your student has worked hard and have covered all Georgia Standards that will be represented in this test.
This will be the first time that your student has undergone a test like this and we want to alleviate any anxiety.. both for the child and the parents!
All students will be testing after our restful Spring Break on the following days:
Wednesday, April 20: ELA Sections 1 and 2
Thursday, April 21: ELA Section 3
Monday, April 25: Math
Wednesday, April 27: Science
Friday, April 29: Social Studies
We are asking all parents to please avoid scheduling appointments or travel during these days as we would LOVE 100 % attendance for your student’s testing schedule. Please pay close attention to the Test Taking Tips above and help your child enter testing schedules ready to perform!
This Friday is Elementary Night at the EJCHS football game and all students will enter the stadium for free to get an opportunity to run out with the players prior to the game! See below the instructions for your student to be a part of #BLUE PRIDE!
All elementary students are to enter the far left gate by 6:45 (see Coach White at the gate)
Students should be organized by school. Look for Ms. Halley on the track.
At 7:00 EJCHS will introduce each school as the students march down the track or edge of field.
Students will move to the track and stand on the edge of the track facing the field until the national anthem has played and until the players have made their way to the sideline for the start of the game.
Wear your spirit wear and get ready to show our BLUE PRIDE!
For all of my parents: I am going to implement the Remind 101 app for information and reminders in this class. For those that want information sent by text to their phone or by email, please follow the directions below:
