PTA - Teacher Appreciation!
PTA would like to offer some fun themed gift baskets to raffle off as well this year. It's been a difficult year and we think they deserve a little "extra" appreciation. We have set up an extensive sign up (link below) that should provide items you can choose to donate to these themed baskets OR there is also the option to donate funds in each sign up slot to go toward the purchase of items to fill these baskets, if that is an easier option for anyone.
If you do choose to donate items, they will need to be new and unused and be dropped off by 10:00 am on Monday, May 3rd. There is a drop off box in the front office labeled "PTA TEACHER APP DONATIONS" where you can safely leave your items for the baskets.
We will assemble them Monday for raffling off during the week by the administration.

If you have any questions, or need further information, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org

GCPS Superintendent Search Survey Link
The Gwinnett County Board of Education is moving forward in its search to identify the school district's next superintendent.

As a member of our school community, we hope you will participate in the online survey to share your thoughts on the qualities you would like to see in the next superintendent. The survey is open through 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, May 16, and is available in English, Spanish, Korean, Chinese, and Vietnamese. Click here to take the Gwinnett Community Superintendent Search Survey.
