From our PTA
The fundraising committee would like to thank you for your support!
We appreciate you wearing the keychain lanyards around school as that is a large part of promoting the fundraiser with the students. We are happy to exchange keychains with you if there is a particular one you want--just let us know!
We also encourage you to reach out to parents -- let them know how much you want to earn the $50 Book Fair credit, and how they can help make that happen.
We are currently behind for meeting our goal to cover the costs of the PTA programs at school, so we would really appreciate any efforts you can make to help the fundraiser be successful!
We are still planning out the details of the pie-throwing event, but we know it will be on Friday, September 18th at 2:00pm behind the school. Any student who donates $200 or more earns a pie to throw at a volunteer teacher/staff member. We would love to know of any additional competitions going on between teachers so we can plan one hilarious pie-throwing event!
Please email us with any questions you might have:

E-SPLOST ~ November 3
On Tuesday, November 3, 2015 Gwinnett County voters will be asked to extend the special purpose local option sales tax for education (E-SPLOST). Over the years, the E-SPLOST has funded educational capital projects that have benefited all students in Gwinnett County. It is important for Gwinnett citizens to be aware of the E-SPLOST and the district's plan for meeting the classroom and technology needs of Gwinnett's growing student enrollment. If you would like more information about E-SPLOST please go to the following link: http://publish.gwinnett.k12.ga.us/gcps/home/public/home/content/general-info/esplost-information
