Suwanee Express

Week of October 19th

Suwanee Families,

It's Early Release Week! Thank you for signing up to meet with your child's teacher via zoom or in-person. We do require teachers meet with all of their parents, so please make sure to sign up. Also, another important date is approaching. October 28th parents will begin making their decisions for their child's instructional setting for 2nd semester. I hope to see you all at the Suwanee Spooktacular on Friday night!

Thank you for all your support! Have a wonderful week!

Your VERY Proud Principal,

Ms. Mary B. Taylor

Instructional Setting Decision For 2nd Semester

Beginning October 28, Gwinnett parents and guardians will make a decision about how their children will learn during second semester. Like this semester, families may select either in-person instruction at their child’s school or digital learning at home. As students and families are more familiar with these two options and what they entail, the decisions families make will be for the entire semester.

The Spring Instructional Preference Questionnaire will be available in your Parent Portal account October 28 through 11:59 p.m. on November 15.

If you do not have a parent portal account, please go to the school district website for information or contact your local school to request one.

We will remind you on October 28 that the window for making your family’s decision regarding second semester is open.

Common Q&A:

  • Do I have to complete this if my child will not change instructional settings? No
  • What happens if I don't complete this? For example, in the summer, it defaulted to in-person if the parent didn't complete. It will default to their current instructional setting
  • Will parents get a hand-out that shows them how to find this on the parent portal? When you sign onto the parent portal, a direction form will pop up to walk you through the process.

How do I access E-Books?

Have you signed up for your parent teacher conference?

What is Suwanee Spooktacular?

Your PTA is working so hard to bring this completely FREE event to our Suwanee families. We cannot wait to have a hauntingly good time with you on Friday from 5:30pm -7pm!

What is the Suwanee Spooktacular? This brand new event is a drive-through party where all our amazing teachers will be dressed up ready to give all the kids in your family a bag of candy. You will stay in your cars for the duration of this event. We encourage you to wear costumes and decorate your cars. Please remember that costumes should be worn at the Suwanee Spooktacular, not during the school day.

Please let us know that you're coming so that we know how much candy to have on hand. Head over here to tell us you're coming:

Want to give your students a chance to win a popsicle party and extended recess for their whole grade? Bring a donation for the North Gwinnett Co-Op. The grade with the most donations dropped off during Suwanee Spooktacular will win a popsicle party and extended recess!

Cape Day 2020!

The kids had so much fun cheering Coach GoGo on as he completed his push-ups! My gourmet meal of grasshoppers and worms was hilarious. You could hear the cheers through the building and zoom, "Suwanee! Suwanee!" It was awesome! Thank you to all of our parents, teachers, and students for making this happen.
