Georgia Parent Survey
All schools in
Georgia participate in School Climate Surveys each school
year. This suite of surveys includes student surveys,
staff surveys, and parent surveys which are combined
together to calculate Pope High School's Climate Star Rating
on the state of Georgia’s College and Career Ready
Performance Index (CCRPI).
Parent Survey is modeled after the student survey and
contains 24 questions. Parents may complete the survey using
their personal computer, smartphones or tablet. Survey
responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to
the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. The
URL address for the Georgia Parent Survey is posted below.

Interact, and NHS clubs along with the Media Center are
hosting the annual Thanks-for-Giving Food Drive for the Cobb
Center for Family Resources. This is the 30th
anniversary of the Thanks-for-Giving program, which gives
families here in Cobb all the makings of a traditional
Thanksgiving meal to take home and prepare with their
families. We are also collecting extra food items that will
last the families throughout the holiday week.
Every fall, thousands of families struggle to keep food on
the table. Thanksgiving week can be even more financially
stressful when students are home from school for more than
just the holiday meal.
Lastly, this is a competition for
local schools. Last year, Pope won our division with a
collection of over 2000 food items and over $200 in gift
cards! I have set up a competition between my classes (for
homemade cookies). Please have students bring donations to
Let’s make this year’s donation
bigger than last year’s! And WIN! Go Hounds!

Peer Tutoring Club
This is a peer tutoring club open to any Pope student.
Tutors have been selected based on academic performance,
character, and communication abilities.
Students who request tutoring(tutees) will sign up using
form. The tutoring committee will match these students with
tutors and the tutor will contact the tutee with a date/time
for the tutoring session (to take place at Pope).
Currently, all tutoring sessions are one-on-one and
will take place in the Media Center before or after school,
during AO, or during X-Block. Tutors and tutees will sign a
tutoring completion sheet at the end of each session. There
are also opportunities to do tutoring once a week at
Hightower Trail Middle School. Please see Mrs. Zonin in the
Media Center if you have any questions.
