In November, the air grows cold and the earth and all of its creatures prepare for winter. Animals seek food and shelter, and people gather together to celebrate their blessings with family and friends. Curl up with your loved ones and enjoy the sights, sounds, scents, and traditions of this very special time of year.” - Cynthia Rylant

Greetings Parents-


As we reflect on the many things for which we are thankful, I want to take this opportunity to share just a few of them with you: I am thankful for our students who come to school every day ready to learn – they give us all a daily reminder of what is important and why we are here. I am thankful for the parents that have kept the faith in us. They continue to share their most valuable possession with us and—in most cases— work hard and advocate to be a partner in their children’s education, safety, and well-being. I am also thankful for our volunteers who enthusiastically contribute so much to our school. Most importantly, I am thankful



Wishing you and your families a happy, healthy and relaxing Thanksgiving holiday!


Proud to be your principal,
Mrs. Stevens

Imagine Language and Literacy!

Imagine Learning is now Imagine Language and Literacy!


Imagine Language and Literacy is designed to help students accelerate their language and literacy development. The software provides differentiated instruction, scaffolded support, continual assessment and more for ELLs, struggling readers and students with disabilities.


Research has shown that students who use Imagine Language and Literacy for 20 hours make at least one year's growth in literacy.


Please contact our LSTC, Anthony Hossack at Anthony_Hossack@gwinnett.k12.ga.us, to find out how to use Imagine Language and Literacy at home.
