NEWS & EVENTS
The Georgia Parent Survey is modeled after the student survey and contains 24 questions.
Parents, please complete the survey using your personal computer, smartphone, or tablet.
For those of you who do not have access to the Internet, please stop by the school to access and complete the survey.
I'm encouraging all parents to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating.
Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. The Georgia Parent Survey is also available in Spanish. You may select the Spanish version within the survey. The Georgia Parent Survey link is posted below.

Thank You Lewis PTSA!
Mr. Sproat & the Lewis Elementary Media Center would like to thank our wonderful PTSA & the Lewis community for their fundraising support!
Their tremendous effort raised $11,642.73! We are excited for this amazing kick-start to our learning commons transition!
Simply put, a learning commons is the future of the media center/school library. It utilizes design and programming concepts that transform the traditional library into a more innovative, adaptive, and creative space.
We are excited to begin this journey, and we thank our amazing PTSA and Lewis family for supporting us!

FoodFinderGA is a free smartphone app developed by a Georgia Public Schools graduate - it’s available on the Apple App Store or Google Play right now (search: foodfinder), or online at www.foodfinderga.org.
The app creates a 100% anonymous, direct connection between students & families who need food and their closest free food providers.
Both the FoodFinderGA app and the website showed a dramatic increase in use over the Thanksgiving break:
Thanksgiving week visits to FoodFinder = +496% vs. weekly average during this school year-to-date.
Average Daily use during Thanksgiving week = +500% v. the daily average this school year.
Peak usage was Monday 11/21, the 1st full week without school lunch this school year = +1,269% daily average

Other times, such as After School Program or after school activities would not be included. Per the Fire Marshall's Office, no one is allowed to park in a Fire Lane, whether there is a driver in the vehicle or not, at any time other than the following:
