Greetings Sweetwater Middle School Parents,

This is the final edition of our Sunday Sweetwater Middle School News. Please read below for important information.

  • All Paper Copies of Finals/Work packets must be dropped off at the school by 12:00 on Monday to be graded.
  • A Students Honors Edition Newsletter will be sent out later this week to recognize our students for Honor Roll. There will also be a special tribute to our 8th Grade Students to recognize them for all their hard work and academic success while attending Sweetwater Middle School.
  • Yearbooks are anticipated to come in by Mid June. Parents will be notified by phone or email of when they can pick up at the local school.
  • Rising 7th and 8th Grade Parents should check the school website for updates throughout the summer.

From the Parent Center - Dr. Harris

Hello SMS Parents,

It has been a great year meeting and working with you. To my 8th grade parents, you will definitely be missed. For my parent volunteers, you were phenomenal this year. Thank you for running the PBIS store, for doing Scoliosis with our nurses, for providing treats for our students, for helping with Great Days of Service, for helping out in the Media Center, and for being you! I am sorry we did not have our Parent Appreciation Breakfast this year, but I will plan something in the fall.

Below you will find information about our Summer Meals Program.

On Friday, May 15th , Gwinnett County Public Schools wrapped up the meal service it has provided for the last two months to Gwinnett children 18 years and younger. This service has provided more than 2.2 million meals at 67 school locations and included delivery by school buses within identified clusters.

Gwinnett County will began its Summer Meals program on Monday, May 18. Gwinnett County’s program, now in its second year, will expand to add locations and free grab-and-go breakfasts and lunches for children 18 years old and younger. Parents can pick up nutritious meals for their children at 18 park locations around the county to take home or the children can pick up their own meals. The meals, which consist of things like sandwiches and wraps, meet USDA guidelines. Meals are also available for adults with disabilities.
