Parent Teacher Conferences

"Education is a shared commitment between dedicated teachers, motivated students and enthusiastic parents with high expectations." ~ Bob Beauprez


Thank you so much for the time you have taken to communicate with parents the progress of their children. You dedicated many extra hours to accommodate a variety of different schedules. We appreciate all that you do each and every day. Enjoy your weekend.

Welcome to Irene Adesina!

Irene is joining us from Sweetwater Middle School. She will be our new cafeteria assistant manager.

Local Heros

Congratulations to Melanie Ford for, once again, helping Parsons ES to earn the Governor's Shape Honor Roll.


Jennifer Pegues was able to purchase chair pockets for her classroom by raising funds through the DonorsChoose.org website.


Thank you to all of our teachers and staff for donating delicious soups, salads and deserts to raise funds for the PES Relay for Life team.

E-SPLOST

On Tuesday, November 3, 2015 Gwinnett County voters will be asked to extend the special purpose local option sales tax for education (E-SPLOST). Over the years, the E-SPLOST has funded educational capital projects that have benefited all students in Gwinnett County. It is important for Gwinnett citizens to be aware of the E-SPLOST and the district's plan for meeting the classroom and technology needs of Gwinnett's growing student enrollment. If you would like more information about E-SPLOST please go to the following link:http://publish.gwinnett.k12.ga.us/gcps/home/public/home/content/general-info/esplost-information or www.gwinnettkidscount.com
