Nick Moon & Jayme Harris "Creates the path and leads the way".........

We thank the both of you for your phenomenal leadership with getting the American Heart Association project started and completed successfully. The amount collected truly demonstrates the compassion and heartfelt connection that many of students and families have for those who are in need. I know the kids were inspired by collecting the ducks too, but their efforts are a major accomplishment.

Thanks for all that you do to support TEAM JENKINS vision, mission and goals. Most importantly, that you for making PE & Health fun and engaging for students.

Central Gwinnett Cluster and Mill Creek Hawks.....UNITY at its best!

Teaching and Learning is our main focus, but building strong relationships and communities is the essence of who we are as host of local schools.

Last evening, Central Gwinnett High School hosted John Johnson Knight as a fund raiser for one of the Central Gwinnett Cluster student who is fighting cancer. The cluster was overwhelmed with the support from our community. It is always crystal clear that our cluster (not just the high school) is united in its support for things that matter the most. Maryanne Grimes, Central Gwinnett Cluster shares " when the baseball players from Mill Creek arrived, the tears began to flow. I was so proud of my home community for remembering us and connecting two schools that on many levels are so very different."

TEAM Jenkins, we are a "Black Knight" family. Everything may not be the way that we think it should be, but there is no doubt that we shall stand for what is right, good and best for our students, families and our school. Through positive & healthy relationships, we build each up and everyday the outcomes shall be priceless.
