eCLASS has arrived at Mt. Park!
We now have WiFi throughout our campus and students are allowed to bring their own electronic devices in order to access on-line information and tools to support their learning. Parent permission forms were distributed during our recent Open House and are also available through your child's teacher.
Please stay tuned for more information as we transition to an increased use of technology at Mt. Park.
Until then, the link below provides an overview of the eCLASS initiative.
National Elementary Honor Society
Congratulations to our fifth grade students recently inducted into the National Elementary Honor Society. Also, a big THANK YOU to Mr. David Young and Ms. Kristin McCord for all of their efforts in getting this new chapter up and running.
Below is an article recently published by the Gwinnett Daily Post as well as the link to the original article:
The National Elementary Honor Society recently approved Mountain Park Elementary as a new chapter for this school year as it joined schools around the country to promote academic achievement and leadership involvement.
The Lilburn school established the chapter and applied at the end of last school year, and will now select new members. The school is designated as a “Founding Chapter of NEHS,” as the program is in cooperation with the National Association of Secondary School Principals in cooperation with the National Association of Elementary School Principals.
“We are honored here at Mountain Park to be associated with an organization such as the NEHS, and our kids are excited to get the program up and running for the new school year,” Principal Allan Gee said in a press release.
“The decision to bring NEHS to their campus is an indication of a commitment to acknowledging the hard work of high achieving and well-rounded students,” said Gerry Tirozzi, executive director of NASSP. “It also signals support for the core values of the Honor Society — values that we believe enhance the life of every member and the entire school community.”
Chapter co-advisers for the program will be Kristin McCord, a gifted teacher, and David Young, a counselor. New members will participate in an induction ceremony at the school at 6 p.m. on Aug. 14.
Setting a Great Example During Lunch
When you visit your child for lunch, we ask that you do not bring fast food items for you or your child. Instead, buy a school lunch and eat with your child or provide a healthy lunch that sets a great example for other students. Thanks.
