  • PCCA Ribbon Cutting Sept. 18, 2019

    Posted by Jay Dillon on 9/18/2019

    A ribbon-cutting ceremony today for the Paulding College and Career Academy officially launched the new school, which technically opened its doors to students on Aug. 1, 2019. Elected officials, members of the Board of Education and the PCCA board, school district officials, vendors who played a key role in the school's construction, donors who provided key instructional materials for students, and, of course, the students themselves, were all present for the ceremony. The new PCCA is serving more than 100 high school students who are enrolled in one of four pathways: Cybersecurity, Energy, Healthcare, and Mechatronics/Manufacturing.

    Here are some photos from today's event:

    More than 650 middle and high school students attended the 2019 PCSD STEM Expo today held at the Paulding County airport. More than a dozen big-name vendors such as Delta Tech Ops, Top Flight Aerostructures, Cobb EMC, Clorox, and public safety agencies from Paulding and Douglas counties displayed their wares and fascinated the students with the dynamic tools of their respective STEM trades.

    It was an eye-opening experience for the students, and hopefully the STEM Expo will help inspire more than a few of them to careers in STEM-related fields.

    The students in these photos are all 6th graders from P.B. Ritch Middle School.

    Beta Club

    The Hiram Elementary School 5th grade Beta Club members are definitely feeling the spirit of giving this holiday season. They decided they wanted to help a local organization, Helping Hands, with items they may be needing to help those in need. Each grade level were given items for them to collect throughout a week. The Beta Club students collected these each day. Once they had all of the items collected, they, along with many helpful parents, went with their leader, Amber Puckett, to deliver the donations. They delivered 120 pounds of food and 77 pounds of nonfood items!

    Thank you to all of the Beta students, parents, teachers, and those that brought in items to donate. What an amazing show of generosity!

    Family Reading Night

    Hiram Elementary School hosted a Family Reading Night with the theme “Holidays Around the World”.  Hornet families that attended had the opportunity to do many fun, creative reading activities. Firefighters and Sheriff's Sgt. Ashley Henson, were community readers. They read with the kids, to the kids, and even listened as some students chose to read to them.

    Students from the East Paulding High Drama Club performed a Reader’s Theatre with the students. They led them in reading and acting out a play called “What! No Santa?”.  Families were able to have their pictures made with Santa Claus. In the computer lab, families played Literary Kahoots. Delicious food was available for families to purchase. Paulding Public Libraries attended so that families that could sign up for a library card.  Students read to one of the service dogs from Caring PAWS.  There were displays with information celebrating holidays from countries around the world.  KSU supplied activities for the students that were both educational and fun. HES would like to thank all of the community volunteers, food providers, and organizations that helped make Family Reading Night such a success.  Thank you to all the staff and HES families that attended!
