    Spring Portraits on April 21

    We are excited to be photographing Spring Portraits on Wednesday, April 21, during school hours.  This year, students will be standing so everyone does NOT share the same sitting apparatus.

    For Spring Portraits, it is a PREORDER system.  You can order ahead using this link:

    https://magicmoment.morephotos.net/Collections/504230

    There are several packages to choose from. As it is a preorder system, we do NOT have proofs of these images.  Also, due to Covid restrictions, we will NOT be taking class pictures this year and we will mail all pictures straight to your home.

    We are working on a fun alternative to class pictures for this year and should be able to share that with you in the next few weeks.

    Several people have asked recently about ordering pictures taken in the FALL or the January makeup day.  You can still order those by using this link:

    Thank you!  Should you have any questions please feel free to email magicmomentges@yahoo.com.

    The Gwinnett County Board of Education is moving forward in its search to identify the school district's next superintendent. An essential part of the search process is obtaining feedback from stakeholders, including families, students, staff, and others in the community. We invite you to participate in an 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.
