Members of the Y Club at Eastbrook Middle School have been working hard this year to make a difference in their school and community. Club members began the year with a commitment to pay their membership dues, which allows the club to be affiliated with and participate in the State YMCA Y Clubs of Georgia.

Nineteen student members traveled last month from Eastbrook to Cartersville Middle School for the District Rally where they joined other middle and high school clubs to learn what it means to be a servant leader. Training was designed to be fun using songs, skits, and challenging activities.

So far, Eastbrook’s club projects have included picking up trash on school grounds, providing school custodians with treat bags and notes of appreciation, making wrist ties for every student in honor of 9/11 Remembrance Day, and providing childcare for the Sharing is Caring Christmas program. Club members are planning to attend a Youth in Government conference in February and will continue working on monthly service projects to improve their community.

New Stadium Does Not Pass The Smell Test - And Response

All statistics point to an illogical decision coupled with questionable tax breaks/support. Lookouts average attendance in 2018 (all that I could quickly find) was 3,206 per game and ranked 74th among ... (click for more)

School Achievement Tied To Funding?

My career was in the public schools of several states. I never drew the connection to funding for schools and achievement until later. This is what I have found. The states of the deep south are run by Republicans. In all of them, educational achievement is poor. Is there a connection between funding for schools and achievement? The answer to that should be a resounding "yes." ... (click for more)
