If you know someone who wants to make a difference in the life of a child, point them our way! Carla Phillips is our Volunteer Coordinator and her office phone is 404-842-5821. Tell your friend(s) to give her a call to find out about this opportunity. Training is provided here at Shallowford (as you know), but they still have to attend one of Carla's trainings on the dates above.

DON'T FORGET: on monday, february 20th there is no afterschool due to Presidents Day holiday.

When there's time, we have lots of new books added to the library cart! Enjoy!

Also, when there's time free from homework, take a look at some new learning and vocabulary games we have.

Encourage all of your students to do their best on their math assessments. We have a donation of two bikes per site to be given to the two students with the biggest improvement in math!

Ask if you don't understand

How to incorporate the study skill: If you don't understand something that a teacher says or what an assignment is asking you to do, ask the teacher. It is possible others in the class don't understand either.

we love you!

Enjoy your [long] weekend!
