During week two of Cobb Schools’ partnership with MUST Ministries, the District and non-profit have built a long-term solution to provide students with a 5-day supply of breakfasts and lunches at 8 school locations on Mondays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The first day of the meal distributions will be Monday, March 23. 

The school locations selected for the meal distributions include schools with more than 50% Free and Reduced Lunch populations.


Cobb Schools Food Service staff will make the food as it is provided by the District and MUST volunteers will distribute to students curbside. The meals can only be served to Cobb County students under 18 years of age, and students must be physically present.  

The weekly breakfast and lunch distributions can be sustained through the rest of the 2019-2020 school year or until Cobb Schools re-opens. However, MUST needs volunteers to help by giving food donations and to sign up here to help with food distributions at schools. Please join us as we help our community in need. 

Breakfast and Lunch School Distribution Locations from 11 am – 1 pm:

  • Acworth Elementary 

  • Bryant Elementary 

  • Campbell HS 

  • Compton Elementary 

  • East Cobb Middle 

  • Garrett Middle  

  • Osborne High  

  • Riverside Intermediate 


The new school locations will replace sites where food boxes were provided this week.

Dear Parents:

Each year our district participates in the Georgia School Climate Survey process.  Below you will find a link which we encourage you to use to take a brief survey related to our school's climate.  We use the survey information to continually improve our school-wide processes and initiatives, so your feedback is not just welcome, it is needed.  If you do not have Internet access, please visit the Parent Resource Room to complete the Georgia Parent Survey at school.  We would greatly appreciate you taking the time to participate.

Thank you in advance for supporting our school in this manner.

Principal, Harmony Leland Elementary

Congratulations to our Teacher of the Year, Ms. Charlotte Conyers, and our Classified Employee of the Year, Ms. Patrice Byrd!


Hello Everyone!  For our digital music class we will go to


Please start by clicking on the Rhythm Activity.  This activity allows you to change the beat that the instruments play on as well as which instrument plays.  Have fun changing to the different ensembles, they all have their own unique instrumentation that gives each group a distinctive sound. 


Extension:  Write down your favorite combinations and share with your friends online! 


Now please go over to Song Maker, this works similarly to Rhythm Activity, but you now have the ability to use pitched instruments such as the xylophone.  We’re going to be using this app more in the coming weeks so that YOU get to be the composer. 

Miss you all and can’t wait to hear what you do!
