  • Connection Suggestions for Rising 7th and 8th graders

    All Coleman Middle School students will be allowed to suggest the connection classes they would like to take for the 2021- 2022 school year. All students are required to take at least one arts class during the school year.  Every effort will be made to place students in ONE of their top choices.

    **Please note – a sufficient number of interested students are required for someclasses to be offered. Therefore, some classes may not be offered if enough students do not express an interest. All classes are first come first serve.

    We hope to honor all suggestions. If we cannot students will be assigned to connection classes, and these classes will not be changed.

     

    Connection suggestions open Friday, February 19 at 5:00pm and close Friday, February 26 at 5:00pm.

     

    Please use the following link to make your suggestions.

  • On Monday, January 25, Gwinnett County Public Schools will resume in-person instruction for students whose families selected that option.

    Families should note that Tuesday, January 26, is a scheduled Digital Learning Day (DLD) for all students. This is the first of four at-home asynchronous learning days this semester that will provide additional planning time for teachers. (Note that students will access lessons in eCLASS but will not have virtual class time with their teachers on these scheduled DLDs.) On Tuesday, meals will be available for curbside pick-up at schools, and, the district will deliver meals along all bus routes countywide. Families should expect buses to run their routes from approximately 10:45 a.m. to noon, beginning at the first stops on the route. 

    Again, in-person instruction will start again on Monday, January 25, and will be followed by a scheduled digital learning day on Tuesday, January 26. Following this districtwide digital learning day, students will return to their selected instructional preference (in-person or digital) for the remainder of the week.

  • Beginning October 28, Gwinnett parents and guardians will make a decision about how their children will learn during second semester. Like this semester, families may select either in-person instruction at their child’s school or digital learning at home. As students and families are more familiar with these two options and what they entail, the decisions families make will be for the entire semester.

    The Spring Instructional Preference Questionnaire will be available in your Parent Portal account October 28 through 11:59 p.m. on November 15.

    If you do not have a parent portal account, please go to the school district website for information or contact your local school to request one.

    We will remind you on October 28 that the window for making your family’s decision regarding second semester is open.

  • Gwinnett County BOE issues proclamation to boost awareness of the importance of early learning.

    The Gwinnett County Board of Education has proclaimed Friday, September 25, 2020, as Building Babies’ Brains Day in Gwinnett County Public Schools. The proclamation, approved at its September business meeting, was made in support of the Gwinnett Building Babies’ Brains Initiative, which was created and launched by the Gwinnett County Community Early Learning Working Group. This group is launching an awareness campaign, which kicks off September 25, as part of a broader countywide strategy to improve Kindergarten Readiness.

    According to the most recent data, there are currently more than 60,000 children aged five or younger in Gwinnett County. Last year 52% of Gwinnett County Public Schools’ kindergartners arrived to school unprepared. Early learning plays a key role in school readiness as children’s brains are 90-percent developed by age 5, and the number of words spoken to a child before age 5 significantly increases their opportunity for success in school. In addition, early brain development is a key factor in lowering dropout rates, and moving a student from dropout to graduate yields higher tax revenues and lower government expenditures over their lifetime. It also has been proven that children exposed to positive early reading, singing, and talking by caregivers are less likely to have academic and behavioral problems in school.

    The Board of Education’s proclamation is just one way the school district is working to raise community awareness about the importance of early brain development in children under 5 and how vital this is to our community’s success.

    For more information about the campaign visit https://buildingbabiesbrains.com/. This website, which launches on September 25, offers valuable information that will help parents and caregivers engage with their children in a way that promotes learning from birth.
