Georgia Milestones, the new state assessment, was first administered in Ware County last spring. With last year’s test results in hand, Ware Middle teachers and staff went to work preparing resources and implementing plans to ensure that students are prepared for testing this spring.
“Ware Middle wants to make sure that parents are kept informed and have access to the best resources possible,” said Dr. Darlene Tanner, principal. “Our Milestone Mania event provided just that. Teams of teachers in all content areas presented information to parents and gave them ideas of what they can do at home to help their children.”
Also, Tanner said, computers were set up for parents to take a survey to provide important feedback to help Ware Middle provide the best education possible to all students.
To top the night off, parents were served a chili and baked potato dinner, and door prizes were given away to many that attended.
Ware Middle continues to encourage parents to visit the school website weekly to stay informed of what is happening at school and to have access to the latest resources.
“Teachers and staff at Ware Middle are very proud of our students and know that parent engagement is the key to that success,” Tanner said.
