We will incorporate binder set up and organization checks into our content classrooms and Hawk 30 lessons. All students must keep ONE binder for all their classes.

Please consider supporting Holcomb Bridge Middle by donating school supplies to be used at our 1st Annual Back to School Bash. You can drop off your donations to the school directly or the bin at the East Roswell Library. We are specifically looking for: highlighters, loose leaf paper, 8-tab dividers with pockets, pencil pouches, markers, pencils, and 3 inch-3 ring canvas zipped binders. No donation is too small!

Climate Star Rating

Holcomb Bridge Middle School has received top honors from the state for its school climate. Holcomb Bridge Received a 5 star climate rating, the highest possible rating. The honor went to only seven other Fulton County schools, and puts Holcomb Bridge in the top 15% of all state of Georgia schools. The following message about Climate Star Ratings comes from the Georgia Department of Education:

School climate refers to the quality and character of school life – the "culture" of a school. A sustainable, positive school climate fosters youth development and student learning, which are essential elements for academic success, career-skill improvement and overall quality of life. The School Climate Star Rating helps determine whether a school is on the right path to school improvement.

"Research has shown us that school climate has a strong impact on student achievement," State School Superintendent Richard Woods said. "The data used to develop the 2014 Star Ratings proves this once again. If your school has a positive climate, it's giving students the environment they need to learn. You'll likely see high achievement there – or a school that's on the right track toward high achievement."  

Each school in Georgia received a 1-5 star ratings, with five stars representing an excellent school climate, and one star representing a school climate most in need of improvement. School Climate Star Ratings are an informational tool for schools, administrators, and parents; they do not affect the school's College & Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) score.

Interpretations of the star ratings are below; this information can also be found in the School Climate Law.

'5-star' schools ranked excellent according to the school climate index;

'4-star' schools ranked above average according to the school climate index;

'3-star' schools ranked average according to the school climate index;

'2-star' schools ranked below satisfactory according to the school climate index, or

'1-star' schools ranked unsatisfactory according to the school climate index.

School Climate Star Ratings are required by law; they also serve as a companion to the Department of Early Care and Learning's Quality Rated program, which includes an assessment of the learning environment.

"Students cannot learn in environments that do not support them," Superintendent Woods said. "Georgia is committed to measuring the quality of its learning climates, and this aligned approach helps us assess that quality from preschool all the way through 12th grade."

When you are viewing grades in the Home Access Center, please pay attention to the drop down window that allows you to choose which "run" you would like to view. Please be sure to select "All Runs" if you want to see the average for the semester. If you choose "1" or "2," it will only calculate the grade for that grading period. Since grades for non-Connections courses are calculated by semester, not quarter, "All Runs" will give you the correct average.
