School Awards

Georgia SHAPE

Congratulations to Still Elementary for earning the Platinum Award Level for the Governor's SHAPE Honor Roll AGAIN: 2014, 2015, & 2016!

We are one of 82  schools in the STATE of GEORGIA that has received this prestigious award.

The Platinum Award Level means that as a school community we have chosen to put the health of our students and staff as a priority.  

  • 186 schools were awarded in the state of Georgia celebrating their commitment to wellness.
  • 4 years ago Cobb County signed a pledge for all schools to participate in 30 minutes of physical activity, including recess outside of the physical education program.  This program is called Power Up for 30
  • This is why we have morning walking club, moment of movement in the morning, and brain breaks throughout the day.  You all can see the benefits of increase physical activity every day!  It helps lots of our wiggly worms get some wiggles out, increases blood flow, attention span, eases transitions, and promotes a healthy lifestyle.

Let's keep up the good work!

Let's Move Active School

The nation’s top physical activity and education distinction for K-12.

525 schools in 37 states were awarded for 2015. Only 5 schools from Cobb County will receive this award.

As educators, we have a passion for our student’s overall well-being.  We know that active kids do better in school.

What does this award mean? It means we are part of the solution. By proving students with 60 minutes of physical activity (including PE) a day, we are making a difference in the lives of our students and our community.
