Two-Time Winner of The Broad Prize

GCPS has been a finalist for the prestigious Broad Prize three times (2009, 2010, and 2014) and is now a two-time winner (2010 and 2014). Gwinnett is the only previous winner to be named a finalist in its first year of eligibility. The system's combined Broad Prize winnings total $1.75 million in college scholarships for Gwinnett students. We are proud to serve in Gwinnett!

Parent Perception Surveys

If you were not able to complete the online parent perception survey while at school during conferences this week, we encourage you to do so via the Parent Portal. Simply log on and follow the link on the home page. The survey is available in English and Spanish through December 12, 2014.

Thank you in advance for helping to celebrate the work of our school and for providing input so that we can continue to improve for our kids.

Backyard Toys

Have your children outgrown their Little Tykes or other climbing and riding toys? Are you looking for a place to donate? Our pre-school classes have their own playground on the upper field. If you have a miniature slide, sandbox, trikes, wagons, cars or other backyard toys, we would love to give them a new home.
