WE OWE YOU AN APOLOGY

Posted by Danice H. Wilson on October 1, 2013 at 4:15 AM Comments comments (0)

Please accept our sincere apology for the disconnect in communication.  Saving Generations had two calling lines (one with department extensions and general access and the other a crisis line).  There was apparently a cross in the lines as the fowarding capabilities crossed one another out so there were a lot of missed calls.  The problem is fixed and business is back to normal. Please use the 678-785-PATH (7284) number for all Saving Generations tele-communications.  Thanks and again or appologies. ;)

Ongoing Toiletry Drive for College Undergrads & Military

Very Important Announcement: Especially for Parents, Students, Friends & Family of the Recently Graduated Class of 2012

 

Many of our Class of 2012 graduates are settling in with their various endeavors. However, there is still a burden that our students are facing. As some of you may know our government states that once a child is 18 years of age we (the parents) are no longer legally responsible for them. Well, what happens when that child, now young adult, is off to college, military, etc? They still need basic things and are not equipped to handle it all alone. Scholarships & financial aid only stretch so far. I am blessed that my girls are not far away but some of us can't hop in the car and drive 20 minutes away to give our kids supplies. This is where I need your help. If you are in the metro Atlanta area, I would like to start collecting items (toiletries inclusive of: toilet paper, feminine pads, tooth paste, deodorant, first aid items, nonperishable snacks, cell phone refill cards, etc) for these students who are really trying to stay on the right path. The parents simply cannot do it alone. If you are out of the Metro Atlanta area and would like to help, you can do so by making a donation so that we can either purchase items or use funds for shipping items to the various students. Please inbox me for more info.(or if you or your child would like to be a recipient) or click the make a donation button to the right. Please spread the word!!!!!

*Any undergraduate student living on campus or in the military may qualify. Contact me for more details.

Need Based Cobb County High School Book Scholarship

Posted by Danice H. Wilson on July 11, 2011 at 4:17 PM Comments comments (0)

SCHOLARSHIP: FOR THOSE STUDENTS WHO ATTEND OSBORNE HIGH SCHOOL (Cobb County High Schools)- MARIETTA DISTRICT SCHOOL STUDENTS-will need to contact me to let me know if you are having a similar activity at your school and if you need to participate in this scholarship as well.

Parents received a message from school a few days ago. "I wouldn't be Mama D if I didn't tell you". I'm very passionate about obtaining knowledge through literature, learning words randomly through the dictionary and playing word games. All of you have a responsibility this summer and I want to help make it successful. You guys have "suggestive" summer reading to do. I am sure that some of your teachers will require you to do some form of test or essay regarding the books of choice. I am ordering books now (assuming that the choices will be limited at the library). I will purchase 1 copy of the least expensive book of your choice (it will be purchased online and used) provided that you contact me and explain why you are unable to to get the book. *This is a sponsored event from me since you are a member of Saving Generations. If their is anyone interested in this sponsorship, they must register to be members of Saving Generations and follow the same instructions. THERE IS A VERY LIMITED SUPPLY OF BOOK SCHOLARSHIPS so this is a first come first serve.

Dear Osborne Parents and Students,

The English Department hopes you are enjoying a fun-filled summer. Of course, among all the summer activities, we encourage you to READ.

According to the Cobb County’s standard for Reading across the Curriculum, students are required to read a minimum of 25 grade-level appropriate books (approximately 1 million words per year). Therefore, summer reading is recommended to achieve this goal. We strongly suggest and encourage all students to read at least one book from the Summer Reading List based upon your grade level prior to returning to school on August 15. Students will complete activities that demonstrate their knowledge of the chosen novel (s) upon their return to school. Be prepared to discuss your analysis of your chosen novel(s) with your English teacher. The Osborne family strives to improve literacy, stimulates imagination, improves thinking skills, enhances vocabulary development and promotes lifelong readers.

The novel(s) of your choice may be found at the local library or you may purchase one for your own pleasure. Enjoy, Relax and Read!
