Oh Say Can You See...
Great Job Team Suwanee!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for making our first STEM day a wonderful success! The energy, the excitement and the engagement of all of our Suwanee students was a delight to witness. I thank you for your dedication in getting the students excited about STEM and reaching out to your parents to make sure we all had the materials we needed for the day. Most importantly, I thank you for being open to try something different with your students and your willingness to allow the students to explore, create and test their own designs. It was a great day and I am truly grateful for your work in making it run as smooth as possible.
A special thank you to Soo and Meaghan for all of your help in planning and organizing! I couldn't have done it without you!
National STEM Day at Suwanee!

Teaching and Learning Conference
On June 16-17, K-12 teachers of all content areas will participate in the second annual GCPS Teaching and Learning Conference (TLC). Last year, we hosted more than 900 teachers at the J. Alvin Wilbanks Instructional Support Center for the conference. This year, we expect more than 1,000 teachers to attend! The conference will be held from 8 AM - 4 PM on both days. Teachers will be able to choose the sessions that best meet their needs. Conference strands include:
Instructional Transformation/Differentiated Instruction
Academic Knowledge and Skills
Registration for TLC will be open via the Portal under Tools\2016 Teaching and Learning Conference. Sessions for the conference will be selected on site.
Teaching and Learning Pre-Conference Sessions
Pre-conference sessions (June 13-15, 2016) will cover specialized instruction and will be available at various locations throughout the district for some curriculum areas. Sessions can be found in PD&E by selecting

Despite the wonderful helpers that we have, please refrain from allowing or asking students to assist you in packing. As you know from years past, we need to maintain an environment conducive to new learning each day until the students dismiss for summer on May 25.
If you have any questions, please see Ms. Brown-Townsend, Ms. Martinez, or Ms. Keag.
