News from the Media Center

It's hard to believe that we have just a few days left of library book check out! Our last day of check out is Friday, May 6 and books will be due on Wednesday, May 11. You can see what your child has checked out from the Media Center in the parent portal. Fines for lost books can be paid via cash, check, or MyPaymentsPlus. Click here for a guide. Outstanding books will stay on their account next year and even at the middle school, so let's get them taken care of in the next few weeks!


Stay tuned for more information about summer reading and our annual collaboration with the Gwinnett County Public Library!

Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten Registration is upon us! If you have a child who is turning 5 by September 1st, you are invited to attend our Kindergarten Registration on May 5th from 3:30-5:30. You may register online and upload any necessary documentation by clicking here, or you may register in person. We will have a computer lab available for your convenience.


On May 5th, you will have the opportunity to take a quick tour of our school, check out our PMES spirit wear, and speak with our PTA about volunteer opportunities. Your child may also take part in the Kindergarten Readiness Entry Profile (KREP). This provides us with information about what your child already knows as he/she prepares to enter kindergarten.


We look forward to seeing you on May 5th!
