Parents & Teachers Together = Student Success

Academic Parent-Teacher Teams (APTT) have started in the Barrow County School System for the 2017-2018 school year. Families are invited into their child's classroom to examine a foundational skill related to academics. Each family sets a goal for improvement and makes a commitment to practice with their child each week. Families and teachers connecting and finding meaningful ways to engage with their children academically contribute to the success of their students. Watch for information about your child's APTT meeting. Click here for pictures of Kennedy Elementary's 4th and 5th grade meetings.

Ahoy There Matey!

County Line Elementary Scope students were pirates with a problem. They had nowhere to bury their treasure! In this problem based learning adventure, students created their own island, mapped the landforms, created a map key, compass rose, and wrote directions on how to find the treasure. Where is the treasure buried? Look at the maps
