Connection Suggestions for Rising 7th and 8th graders
All Coleman Middle School students will be allowed to suggest the connection classes they would like to take for the 2021- 2022 school year. All students are required to take at least one arts class during the school year.
Every effort will be made to place students in ONE of their top choices.
**Please note – a sufficient number of interested students are required for some
classes to be offered. Therefore, some classes may not be offered if enough students do not express an interest. All classes are first come first serve.
We hope to honor all suggestions. If we cannot students will be assigned to connection classes, and these classes will not be changed.
Connection suggestions open Friday, February 19 at 5:00pm and close Friday, February 26 at 5:00pm.

Satisfeed believes that physical fulfillment is crucial for children to reach their highest potential – our mission is to nourish Gwinnett’s children for a brighter future, with food rescue and donations that we deliver directly to hungry families.

GCPS Parent Perception Survey
The administration window for the Parent Survey HAS BEGUN!
Please note the following:
The Parent Survey will be administered February 8 through February 26. Due to the pandemic, GCPS is administering a contactless version of the survey this year. There will be no paper or school computer option. Instead, SchoolMessenger will deliver an email invitation to families to complete a survey for each school at which they have one or more enrolled students. The survey will be available in English, Spanish, Korean, Vietnamese, and Chinese and will be accessed using the link and unique code provided in the SchoolMessenger email.
Please be on the lookout - we appreciate your feedback and continued support!
