evidence for East Cobb’s great reputation for its schools. While the test scores offer a quick take that helps parents and teachers measure a school’s success, it is important to note that beyond the rankings, each school needs to be assessed for other qualities, such as: strong school leadership, parental and community support, creating an environment where students can learn and grow, access to up-to-date textbooks and technology. I have three children attending schools in East Cobb: Lee will be a sophomore at Walton High School; Nikos will be an eighthgrader at Dickerson Middle School; and, Eleni will be joining her brother at Dickerson—so I have a very personal interest in the information presented in our Back to School Guide! I understand the test scores and school’s stated goals are starting points to evaluate a good school for my child/children to attend. But more importantly, I am able to collect on-the-ground intelligence by attending PTA meetings, volunteering in the classroom, and/or bumping into moms at lunchroom visits.

Cobb Fifth Graders Top State on Writing Test Results from the 2012 Georgia Fifth Grade Writing Assessment show Cobb County students continue to outperform their peers across the state in writing skills. Cobb students’ average scale score of 217 is four points higher than the state score of 213; both the local and state averages dropped by a single point from 2011. Eighty-four percent of Cobb students met or exceeded expectations on the assessment, a one percent improvement over 2011. Across the district, 37 Cobb elementary schools had mean scale scores higher than the state average. Schools with the greatest increase in students meeting or exceeding standards include Russell (+17 percent), Keheley (+16 percent), Compton (+16 percent), King Springs (+13 percent) and Acworth (+11 percent). Overall, the five schools with the highest scale scores were King Springs (246), Tritt (246), Sope Creek (244), East Side (239), and Timber Ridge (238). Schools with the highest percentage of students meeting or exceeding expectations include Tritt (99 percent), Kennesaw Charter (99 percent), Sope Creek (98 percent), Due West (97 percent), and King Springs (97 percent).

dents may need to focus their efforts to improve writing skills before taking the Eighth Grade Writing Assessment. Each student paper is scored by professionals who have been trained to evaluate writing. Evaluators score student compositions on the four domains of effective writing (Ideas, Organization, Style, and Conventions), all of which should be present in a composition regardless of the topic. The scale score range for the Grade 5 Writing Assessment is 100 to 350, and scores are reported in the following performance levels: Does Not Meet (100-199), Meets (200-249), and Exceeds (250-350). Summary data for the Fifth Grade Writing Assessment by school may be found on the Cobb School District’s website, www.cobbk12.org.

5th GRADE WRITING ASSESSMENT

As a part of the statewide testing program, the Fifth Grade Writing Assessment was administered in March and requires students to write a composition on an assigned topic. The assessment provides fifth graders with a measurement of their writing performance. The assessment includes different aspects of writing, or domains, which include Ideas, Organization, Style, and Conventions. Domains are rated on a scale of 1 to 5. Performance of Cobb fifth graders as a whole was similar across all domains, ranging from 2.9 in Conventions to 3.1 in Style.

SAT Stats: East Cobb High Schools The Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) and the American College Testing (ACT) are offered by The College Board several times during the year. These tests are not required by the state or school system, and are not administered by Cobb schools; however, most colleges and universities use SAT and/or ACT scores in determining student admission. The SAT is used to predict a student’s potential for success in the first year of college and is required for admission to most colleges and universities. Most college-bound students take one or both of these tests during either their junior or senior year. The following chart displays SAT scores from the Class of 2011 (the last available scores released from Cobb County School District) attending East Cobb high schools.

Increases Vehicle Efficiency A tune-up enables a car to run much more efficiently. A standard tune-up, which normally includes replacement of spark plugs, adjustment and cleaning of the fuel injection system and service or adjustment of various ignition and fuel system components, brings the main operating systems of a car back to factory specifications. With all of these systems operating at an optimal level, a vehicle performs at its maximum efficiency and functionality.

SUNDAY AUG. 26 th 12 - 2 pm 30 4

A tune-up not only provides preventative maintenance, it also identifies worn out parts. Regular tune-ups will ensure that your car will operate at its optimal condition. Most cars require tune-ups approximately every 30,000 miles; some new cars don’t require tune-ups until 100,000 miles. Not performing these basic tasks could result in lower gas mileage or damage to vital engine components.

Join us at Mt. Zion United Methodist Church to kick off our new Fall lineup:

Reduces Vehicle Exhaust Emissions A tune-up reduces the amount of emissions from a car during operation. When a car’s engine components are maladjusted or not functioning properly, fuel is not burned correctly or adequately, increasing emissions and particulate matter from the car’s tailpipe. A standard tune-up will ensure that the main components responsible for proper fuel combustion like ignition timing, filters and spark plugs are replaced or adjusted to work properly.

Increases Vehicle Gas Mileage A tune-up makes a car more fuel efficient. An improperly tuned car cannot burn fuel properly, creating a detriment not only for the outside air but to the car’s fuel economy. A tuneup ensures that the main components supporting maximal fuel economy for a car – ignition timing, spark plugs, filters and oxygen sensors – are replaced or adjusted. We are here to help. Stop in any of our locations. We will be happy to go over your specific vehicle and the manufacturer suggested services.

St. Ann’s Sends 30 Student Missionaries to Tampa

DJ Neezy Entertains East Cobb If you want to host an event that everyone will talk about the next day, it needs more than music, it needs DJ Neezy Entertainment. Ben Needle is a high school social studies teacher by day and DJ Neezy on nights, weekends and summer days when he provides music and fun for all types of events. Born in Seattle, Ben grew up in East Cobb and lives here today with his wife and three (soon-to-be four) children. “I’ve always loved music,” says Ben. “When I attended bar mitzvah celebrations as a preteen, I was always the first one on the dance floor and the last one to leave.” Despite a love of singing and four years of choir in high school, Ben recognized that he didn’t have the vocal talent to be a singer. His love of music stayed dormant for years, until he began writing raps and R&B jams for his classes. Ben enjoys sharing his love of music and fun with others, so he started his DJ business two years ago. He considers himself an “entertainment provider” and will perform at any type of event, whether it’s a lastminute pool party or a wedding that takes months of planning. “When I work with an engaged couple, I meet with them multiple times to ensure that their reception is going to be the experience they want,” says Ben. Ben works closely with all his hosts to ensure they get the best experience possible. His services are not cookie-cutter, and he customizes his DJ performance for each party. In addition to weddings, he provides music for birthday parties, karaoke parties, bar/bat mitzvahs, sweet sixteen parties, anniversaries, school dances, corporate events and fundraisers.

In June, St. Ann’s sent a team of thirty middle school students from neighboring East Cobb schools to the Catholic HEART Work Camp in Tampa. Giving up a week of their summer, the missionaries worked at 3 different locations in an effort to revitalize the community and beautify homes for the elderly, disabled and neglected. “The experience was life changing,” said Timmy Riordan, a student at The Walker School who participated in the mission trip. “I realized that they are just like you and me and with a little help, we can make a difference in their life.” At the Pinellas Hope Homeless Shelter located in Clearwater, a temporary emergency shelter for 250 homeless men and women whose goal is to position the residents toward self-sufficiency, the student missionaries painted, landscaped and cleaned the living areas. In addition, they rebuilt stables for a horse rescue facility and renovated a private residence. Overall, CHWC will host 47 camps around the country with over 13,000 teens in attendance throughout the year. St. Ann’s EDGE program, middle school youth ministry, spearheaded by Jackie Kmet, Jim Herrel and Fr. John Gabriel, will send another group to the camp in Charleston, along with sending a group of teens to Project Fiat in El Salvador. “We are very proud of our youth and their faithful service to others,” said Fr. Tom Reilly, pastor of St. Ann’s Catholic Church.

Ben enjoys performing at events with adults and children and is always in the middle of the fun. He will judge hula hoop contests, hold the limbo stick and even lead a conga line. For more information about DJ Neezy Entertainment, visit his DJ Neezy Entertainment by Ben Needle facebook page or www.djneezy.com. You can also contact him at info@djneezy.com or 678-520-0194.

Nibble and Noshfest To Be Held Labor Day Weekend

For the third year, Nibble and Noshfest entices the community with food and entertainment over Labor Day weekend: Sunday, September 2: 11am to 7pm and Monday, September 3: 11am to 4pm. The festival takes place in the parking of lot of Temple Kol Emeth, 1415 Old Canton Road in Marietta/East Cobb. Nibble and Noshfest (Noshfest, for short) is a two-day festival that provides visitors with a taste of Jewish and other ethnic and traditional foods sold in “sample-size” portions, priced from $1 to $4 – in other words, the premier version of “Taste of . . .” event over Labor Day Weekend! In addition to the food, there will be a range of entertainment from music to live interactive demonstrations. Scores of artists and craftspeople will be selling their wares in this lively setting. Many Cobb and Atlanta community

organizations will be present to provide insight to life in our fabulous city. Tours of the culture-rich Temple Kol Emeth’s sanctuary will be available to all patrons by historians of the congregation and clergy. Children will be wowed by huge jump castles and other great activities. The festival will be once again taking part in the HAVE A NOSH, SHARE A NOSH program. Visitors are encouraged to bring 2 non-perishable food items that will be donated to MUST MINISTRIES to fight hunger. And for a great evening, plan on a “nosh and a show.” Enjoy dinner at Noshfest on Sunday and then attend Comedy Night at Noshfest at 7pm. It’s a wonderful event to complement the traditional BBQ’s of Labor Day weekend. For more information about Nibble and Noshfest, visit www.noshfest.com.

by Corinne Erickson Wedding season is upon us, and it’s not only the brides who are in preparation mode. The Mothers of the Brides (M.O.B.’s) and Mothers of the Grooms (M.O.G.’s) are also getting ready to be in the spotlight. After all, their roles extend far beyond providing around the clock emotional support to their soon-to-be-wedded children, or writing check after check to vendors. This is the M.O.B.’s and M.O.G.’s time to see close family and friends, and often meet an entire new family to whom they are now related, till death do you part! This places the M.O.B.’s and G’s under a certain amount of pressure, and rightfully so. They come into the dermatologist’s office a few months or weeks before the wedding and all want the same thing: to look bright and refreshed, and sometimes a few years younger, for the upcoming nuptials. Of all of the requests that come up in weddings, helping the Moms prepare themselves is one of the most rewarding. I have had the extreme pleasure of helping my mother prepare for two weddings. The first was that of my youngest sister, and the second is my own. In preparing her for these two events, I developed a top five treatment list for the MOB/MOG that addresses her particular concerns, and prepares her for the big day. 1. Botox and Dysport We can’t talk the bride out of her ice sculpture shaped like her childhood pony, or the groom out of his bachelor party running with the bulls in Spain, but we can erase the lines that these ideas have put on your forehead. Botox and Dysport work wonders on those pesky lines between the eyebrows, like the ones that deepened when the caterer told you the price per head for a seated dinner. Instead of trying to strangle the caterer with your eyebrows, take a deep breath, and consider relaxing the grimacing muscles before the wedding. This is also effective for the forehead lines, like the ones that sprang up when your daughter requested rap music for her processional. We can’t control the creativity, but we can help with the collateral damage. Read the rest of the blog at our website … Dermatology Affiliates is located in E. Cobb. Call us at 404-816-7900 to schedule an appointment.

It’s no secret that oral health is crucial to total health, but all too often visits to the dentist are avoided due to fear of pain or discomfort. East Cobb dentist Dr. Ruth Clemans and her team at Elite Dentistry are putting those fears to rest, one East Cobber at a time. Dr. Clemans has practiced dentistry in the East Cobb area for 17 years and treated thousands of local residents. She has an intimate understanding of the anxiety many people experience before and during dental procedures and is proud to offer IV sedation to adults. In IV sedation, the patient is put into a “twilight” state and the necessary work is performed painlessly. Elite Dentistry is one of the few general dentists in the area to offer IV sedation. Elite Dentistry is a full service practice offering all realms of oral procedures including general dentistry, placing and restoring implants, oral surgery procedures, extractions and all cosmetic procedures. All work is performed in the privacy of the comfortably appointed, high tech office. Dr. Clemans is a Certified Sedation Dentist and a fellow of the Dental Organization of Conscious Sedation. She is a member of a number of professional organizations including the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and the Georgia Dental Association. A strong believer in supporting the community, Dr. Clemans is often found on the sidelines of local football games and giving back to local fine arts programs. The animal loving staff also works with Our Pals Place dog rescue organization. Elite Dentistry treats patients ages three to adult in a family-friendly environment. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 770-587-5655 or visit www. attractivesmiles.com. Elite Dentistry is located at 3052 Shallowford Road Suite 100 in East Cobb.

What famous East Cobber belongs to this smile?

before

after

In March of this year, my “midlife crisis” was in full swing with the youngest of my four children preparing to graduate from high school and beginning to grapple with the fact that I will turning the big “50” this September! However, my life and outlook changed the day I sat down and talked with Dr. Dina Giesler. Our daughters have ridden horses together for years, but it wasn’t until I brought up my “crisis” to Dr. Giesler did fate step in and many of my problems became on their way to being solved. Assisting me with my personal “fit for fifty” challenge, she suggested several healthy supplements and invited me to her office to see what she could do with the cracked, stained and not-so-smile worthy 27 year old bonding that was on 16 of my teeth. Two incredibly easy and painless visits later to Atlanta Smiles, I look and feel like a new woman!!! The inviting staff treated me as if I were a part of their family from day one as they were excited for me and my new look. My smile finally reflects the way I feel...young, healthy, alive and HAPPY! Thank you Dr. Giesler and all my friends at Atlanta Smiles – I couldn’t be happier!!!

ss Pilates For Life Owner, Cynthia Soch

As a certified Pilates specialist with over 10 years of experience as a licensed Pilates instructor, Cynthia Schoch strives to improve the overall health of each one of her clients, no matter their age or skill level. Cynthia has run Pilates For Life out of her East Cobb home studio for the past six and a half years, and specializes in helping people to unite mind and body to work together toward the goal of overall fitness through the discipline of Pilates.

“It’s a holistic balance,” Cynthia says. “You need to be mentally engaged. The goal is to create efficacy in the movement of muscle control. By creating strength and flexibility starting everything from a strong center, you create long muscle tone and enhance great posture and skeletal alignment.” Pilates was developed in the 1920s and quickly became popular in the dance community. The discipline is designed to strengthen the core and improve coordination and balance, using a variety of exercises on a mat and on apparatuses. A professional ballet dancer for 24 years, including as principal of the Minnesota Dance Theatre and soloist at The Berliner Opera Ballet in Germany, Cynthia practiced Pilates throughout her career. But you don’t have to be a high-level athlete to benefit from the programs that Pilates For Life offers. Cynthia’s current clientele spans from ages 14 to 85, and includes Pilates patrons as well as those just trying to diminish chronic pain. “It can also be approached therapeutically,” Cynthia says. “Someone with lower-back pain, shoulder pain, or a knee injury, for example, can benefit from Pilates. As you work through the system, it exposes weakness and imbalance and then will help you recreate the balance to your optimum wellbeing.” Cynthia focuses on one-on-one attention instead of working out a number of people at once, which allows her to tailor programs to individuals. Whether it’s a single one-hour session or a full program, her goal is to enhance wellbeing. “I started my studio because I wanted to help people feel good,” Cynthia says. “A lot of people who come to me don’t have as many physical ailments because I try to share my knowledge base to empower and improve their own knowledge and self-awareness. I love what I do!” For more information on Pilates For Life, contact Cynthia at 678-372-5629 or ccschoch7@gmail.com. P A I D   A D V E R T I S E M E N T

Cobb Senior Centers Offer Computer Classes for Seniors

Enrichment of Life Movement Fall Class Registration

Today’s seniors, for the most part, missed taking part in the explosion of home computer use which began in the early 1980s. But determined not to be left out, they are coming forward in large numbers to get on board with this new technology. Seniors are estimated to be the fastest growing Internet user group in the country, and with that comes the need for introductory and advanced level computer training. Beyond the Internet, seniors are learning to use computers for information and image processing, as well as games, home finances, and many other areas of interest for which computers can be applied. In an effort to help train and educate our seniors, Cobb County Senior Centers have established computers and computer training at all five Senior Centers across the county: •

Poole Center (South Cobb)

East Cobb

North Cobb

West Cobb

Called “Computers4Seniors”, Cobb senior residents are offered a variety of courses which were designed specifically for seniors. Class size is limited to six, and each senior has use of a computer during hands-on exercises in class. Classes are taught by volunteers who have extensive experience in using computers. Each course is accompanied by an illustrated training guide which reinforces what is taught in each training session. Often these guides walk students, step by step, through the actions introduced and performed in class. In addition to the instructor, whenever possible, an assisting coach will be present in the classroom to help answer questions, and assist students during hands-on exercises. The Computers4Seniors program is offered in the Fall, Winter and Spring terms. Class registration for the fall term begins in late August. For more information, visit computers4seniors.org.

ELM (Enrichment of Life Movement) is a large independent non-profit, non-denominational learning organization for those 50 or older. They have met for 28 consecutive years in the First United Methodist Church building in Marietta on a quarterly basis. They meet on Tuesday of each week for eight weeks and offer an interesting variety of 45/66 courses, with up to three classes for a fee of $40. Fall registration opened July 12th and continues through August 18, 2012, without a late fee. Classes begin September 11th and are open to residents of Cobb and surrounding counties alike. Application booklets are available at Cobb Senior Centers, Cobb County Libraries, and at some churches and senior living complexes. Online availability is at: www. elmcobb.org, registration questions or help, email elmcobb@gmail.com.
