Here's a short video capturing our Kindergarten and First Grade In Person Return

Welcome Back

Preparing for Students to Return

As we prepare for our 2nd and 3rd graders whose parents chose in person instruction to return on Wednesday, September 2nd, we wanted to share the COVID-19 Morning Checklists and the GCPS TV Return to School Health & Safety Video.

Click the link below to view the GCPS TV video which focuses on everything we are doing to keep students safe, as well as healthy practices we should all employ. We are excited to have a few of our Parsons' students featured in the video.

Gwinnett County is a long-standing district partner with the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. Each year, Gwinnett County students are part of an exhibit to showcase the talents of our students. Last year, due to the pandemic, the art exhibit was put on hold. The High Museum has put together a virtual art exhibit so that these students can still be recognized and celebrated for their hard work. Congratulations to our own Natsuki Takeshima for being showcased in this exhibit. Click the link to view all the amazing Elementary School Artists!

Media Center Information

We are excited to announce that Parsons Elementary School is the Gwinnett County Public Library Elementary School Prize Winner. Parsons was selected for reading the most of all participating elementary schools in the GCPL Summer Reading Program! Way to go! We are so proud of our great readers! In recognition, the GCPS Book Mobile will visit Parsons and give away books to our students. More details will be coming once they are finalized.

Are you ready for some books? If you didn't come for Media Center Curbside Checkout this week, you can come next week. You now access the Media Catalog through the icon on the eCLASS landing page. All you have to do is place your books on hold by midnight this Sunday and you can pick up your books during our curbside pickup times in the Car Rider Lane. See the flyer for more details including the days and times for your pickup. Hope to see you next week to get new books!
