The YWA is a series of camps where students from all school levels can practice the craft of writing in a supportive environment. Camp leaders are National Writing Project fellows and certified Georgia teachers, well versed in the teaching of writing and its many genres.

Lewis Celebrates Red Ribbon Week
October 12-16th, 2015
Red Ribbon Week is a national event that promotes drug awareness and prevention each year. At Lewis, it is a special time for our students, staff, parents, and community to commit themselves to leading a healthy and drug-free life, and to present a unified and visible representation of that commitment. The following themes and activities have been planned for each day of the week. We hope you will join us in celebrating and modeling healthy choices!
MONDAY – Join the TEAM against drugs! – Wear your favorite team shirt or jersey.
TUESDAY – Give Drugs the Boot! – Wear your favorite pair of boots to school to help us stomp out drugs.
WEDNESDAY — Hats off to a drug-free life! – Wear your favorite hat to school today.
THURSDAY – Let’s sock it to drugs! – Wear your silliest socks to school today.
FRIDAY – Drug-Free Friday! – Wear RED today and pledge to live the healthy way!
Each day, the class with the highest participation in each grade level will have their picture featured on the morning news! We hope to see YOU in some of those photos!
Monday, August 10, the students brought home their binders.
Tonight, Tuesday, August 11, 2015- The students will again have spelling and math homework but we will be adding their reading logs. This will be the only reading homework your child will probably have all year. We suggest starting with at least 15 minutes of reading. A homework section will be added to Team CCS's website, please, refer to it for genre codes and more information about the reading log. Please note there is not a Friday slot on the log but instead a Weekend slot. Reading over the weekends is not required but we do encourage it. Those students who fill out the weekend slot will be rewarded with class cash.
