Camden Leads State in Top Title I Reward Schools
The recently released Georgia Department of Education 2016-2017 list of Title I Reward Schools named seven Camden County Schools as either Title I Highest Performing Schools or High Progress Title I Schools. The Camden County School District earned more awards for Title I Highest Performing Schools than any other district in the state of Georgia. Of the eighty-two schools in the state to earn the title of Highest Performing School, five of the schools were from Camden County.
Crooked River Elementary School earned the title of Highest Performing School for the fifth year in a row and Matilda Harris Elementary School earned the title for the third consecutive year. Woodbine Elementary, David L. Rainer Elementary and Sugarmill Elementary were also designated by the Georgia Department of Education as Highest Performing Schools. St. Marys Middle School and Mary Lee Clark Elementary earned the honor of being named Title I High Progress Schools.
In response to the accomplishments of these schools, Dr. Will Hardin, Superintendent of Schools remarked, “This achievement is the epitome of continuous improvement. We are extremely proud of our school leadership and of the work of our teachers to attain this distinction.”
A Highest Performing School is among the five percent of the state’s Title I schools with the highest absolute performance over three years for the “all students” group on the statewide assessments.
A High Progress School is among the ten percent of the state’s Title I schools making the most progress in improving the performance of the “all students” group over three years on the statewide assessments. A school may not be classified as either of these designations if it has been identified as a Priority, Focus, or Alert School.
Schools with a percentage of students eligible for free or reduced lunch at or above 40% are eligible for Title I schoolwide services and this honor. All twelve of Camden County Schools are successful, schoolwide Title I schools.
"Because of You" is a new feature on our Camden County Schools Facebook page and website. We will share ways that parents and community members are dedicating their time and talents to support our students and schools.
The 5th Grade Leadership Academy at SES had the honor of welcoming Mr. Tobey, a Vietnam War veteran and Purple Heart recipient. Mr. Tobey gave life to our curriculum and studies on the Vietnam War. The kids were fascinated and asked thought provoking questions. The proudest moment was when students raised their hands as if to ask a question and instead they said, 'Thank you for your service.' As Mrs. Hutchinson, fifth grade teacher, said "Today was more than just a nice review before our social studies EOG next week. It was about the students realizing the sacrifices that are made for the freedoms we cherish."
SES students were rewarded for their determination to achieve their reading goals with an invitation to the Color Run for Reading
