    I remember sitting down with my grandfather as a child with a tape recorder asking him all kinds of questions. Now there is an app for that called, StoryCorps. Share this with your children and engage in this timeless activity during the holidays! Enjoy! Love, Ms. Young

  • Meet Your Principal, Ms. Young

    Posted by Penelope Young on 9/24/2018

    Ms. Young Hello!  I am Ms. Young the proud Principal of Arcado Elementary School.  As part of the new   school website format, I will now have a "blog".  I have never had a blog before so I find myself very excited.  I will use this format to share my thoughts regarding the school year, upcoming events of importance, requests from parents, etc.

    For now, I have been told that you might want to know a little about me personally.  

    I am in year 27 of my career as a teacher and school leader.  I am a product of the Gwinnett County Public School system.  I graduated from Brookwood High School a long time ago. :)  I love this school system!!!  I have never worked harder but it is all worth it for the children of Gwinnett County and Arcado Elementary School.  

    I have a large extended family that is very important to me.  My niece and nephew are my world!  They both attend Dacula High School and are very involved in their community.  Both are members of the Dacula High School Student Leadership Team.  Many of the students know my sweet dog, Paris Claire.  I enjoy taking her on walks around my neighborhood and she loves to attend my nephew's baseball games. 

    My interests include reading, decorating, spending quality time with my family, and time at the beach to rest and reflect.

    Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I know that this is going to be the best school year we have ever had!  I have been the proud principal of Arcado Elementary School since July 2010.  What I love most about the Arcado community is the strong commitment to family and education.  Did you know that Niche.com ranks our school as the #1 Diverse Elementary School in the State of Georgia?  We are a school community that celebrates cultural diversity and cultural responsiveness.  We welcome the world to Arcado!
