Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) students who will attend one of the seven new schools or the one replacement building scheduled to open in August, won”t have to wait until the first day of school to see their new school. The eight new buildings, which were completed this summer, will open their doors for members of their new learning communities to visit their new school. While some of the new buildings already have held events and academic programs for their students this summer, other new facilities also have scheduled special open houses in July for students, their parents or guardians, and community members, to visit and see the new buildings.
During the schools” community open houses, students and visitors will have the opportunity to tour their new schools and see their new classrooms. Students also may participate in activities that will help them learn their way around their new home. Some of the schools also may provide parents with the opportunity to pick up important information about their child”s new school. All GCPS schools will provide students with the opportunity to meet their new teachers at a later date as part of back-to-school-activities.
