 Colquitt County Schools held a signing ceremony for the 2017 REACH Scholars on October 4, 2017.  Each REACH Scholar will receive $10,000 to put towards their college education, providing they meet the program requirements.

The Realizing Educational Achievement Can Happen (REACH) Scholarship Program was launched by Governor Deal in 2012 and is a needs-based mentorship and scholarship program designed to encourage students, starting in middle school, to persist in their educational pursuits.  Students are provided with the academic, social, and financial support needed to graduate from high school, access college, achieve post-secondary success, and be prepared for the 21st century workforce.

Hands-On Science

As part of an Introduction to Biology unit, students In Mrs. Causey’s and Mrs. Summerlin’s classes learned the steps of the Scientific Method and how to incorporate those steps to solve problems. 

In this activity, Sam (the gummy worm) cannot swim and his boat has capsized trapping his life preserver underneath.  Students must remove the life preserver and place it on Sam using only the paper clips.  Students first identified the problem and formed a hypothesis.  They had to collaboratively brainstorm ideas for saving Sam and then put those steps into action.  After performing their experiments, students completed a lab report with their conclusion and reflections.

Attendance Protocol - UPDATE


Each school year is always an exciting time for students, staff, and families. In order to educate our students, they must be present and on time each day. To ensure success, we ask parents to ensure their children come to school on time each day unless they are sick. If your student is absent due to illness, be sure to submit a note to the school when the student returns. This protocol will be followed at each school for students who are enrolled and/or of compulsory school age.
