Georgia Milestones Scholar Resources
The Georgia Milestones Assessment System is designed to provide information about how well students are mastering the state-adopted content standards in the core content areas of English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies.  

Importantly, Georgia Milestones is designed to provide students with critical information about their own achievement and their readiness for their next level of learning – be it the next grade, the next course, or the next endeavor (college or career).  

Informing parents, educators, and the public about how well students are learning important content is an essential aspect of any educational assessment and accountability system.  

Parents, the public, and policy makers, including local school districts and boards of education, can use the results as a barometer of the quality of educational opportunity provided throughout the state of Georgia.

Please Help Us 

Friday, March 22, 2024 
Greetings Parents/Guardians, 

Beginning Wednesday, April 17, 2024, our scholars will take the Georgia Milestones End of Grade (EOG) Assessment in the following content areas: English Language Arts (6-8), Mathematics (6-8), Science (8) and Social Studies (8). 

 On behalf of the Cedar Grove Middle School scholars, I am asking you to please assist us by donating peppermint candy and or the small sized bottled water for our scholars during testing. We would like to provide each scholar with water and peppermint candy each day of testing. We have about 720 scholars and any amount of the items you can donate will be appreciated. 

In the past years, the peppermint candy & water drive has been successful, and we hope for the same this year.  

 If you decide to donate the requested items, you may drop your donation off at Cedar Grove Middle School beginning Monday, March 25, 2024, through Tuesday, April 9, 2024, from 8:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Some parents/guardians have even had the items delivered from Amazon and other places. Please ensure you provide us with your full name and email address so we can thank you properly. 

"The Washington Post" reported in 2007 that more schools are encouraging students to eat peppermint candy to boost test scores. But is it effective? Peppermint candy contains peppermint oil and sugar, two important ingredients that energize your brain. Research shows that peppermint stimulates the brain by improving memory and increasing alertness while helping it relax. Your body breaks down sugar to glucose -- the main fuel source for your brain. 

Thank you in advance for your support. 
Dr. Scott, Principal 

Greetings 8th Grade Parents/Guardians,
Your scholars received a copy of the End of Year (EOY) 8th Grade Activities Parent Letter on February 28th to give to you. 

Of course, we know you may not always receive information from your scholars; therefore, a copy of the letter is attached. 

Please read the entire document carefully and adhere to all deadlines. Finally, discuss the contents of the letter with your scholars. 
Thank you.

Mission & Vision

The vision of the DeKalb County School District is to inspire our community of learners to achieve educational excellence. Our mission is to ensure student success, leading to higher education, work, and life-long learning. We are making this vision and mission a reality – every day, in every classroom throughout the District.

Through community forums, focus groups, listening sessions, and more, we have engaged our stakeholders, refined our objectives, honed our procedures, and formulated a robust, highly-structured yet agile and adaptive strategic plan. We are pleased with the progress we have made thus far, and excited about the future – of our District, our community, and, most importantly, the 100,000+ students who daily bring to us their limitless potential.

The District has created performance measures, targets, and initiatives to ensure success in each goal area. A monitoring and data collection process has been developed, and rigorous progress check procedures have been implemented. At the local level, on-going training sessions are offered to all principals in order to support the work of aligning, refining, monitoring, and evaluating the continuous improvement efforts of each individual school.

As a community of learners, we are committed to excellence in everything we do – within the classroom and throughout the District. This continuous improvement process permeates each aspect of our Strategic Plan, and we are honored to partner with you to make it a reality for all.
