This Week's Events at Partee
We would like to identify our students who are survivors of any kind of cancer and invite them to participate in Gwinnett's Relay for Life by being one of our "Young Champions." By being a Young Champion, you are invited to begin the Relay Event on May 13th with the honor of being the first survivors in the first lap, attend the Survivor Celebration, and lead the Kids 'R' Kids Lap and Activities. If you are a child survivor, please share the Young Champion Letter and Survivor Registration Form with your parents.
Adult survivors are invited to become part of Gwinnett's Relay. Please fill out the registration form.
If you have any questions, please contact:
Kirsten Baker, Assistant Principal, Leadership Development.
The last day for students and staff to charge breakfast and lunch on their accounts is Monday, May 2. No meal charges will be allowed beyond this date.
Please Take the Georgia Parent Survey
A growing body of research indicates that schools with positive school climate ratings have better test scores and higher graduation rates. School climate refers to the quality and character of school life. The first step to improving school climate is to measure and analyze it with a school climate survey instrument. Please help us to improve by completing Partee’s Parent Survey from the Georgia Department of Education.
Online Registration and Walk-Up Registration Available.
Parent Perception Surveys
We have had a great start to the school year, and parents are encouraged to check into the Parent and Student Portal to see what your students are working on in their classes and how they are progressing. A little attention from you goes a long way in keeping your student on the pathway to success. If your student is struggling, reach out to his/her teacher to discuss areas in which your student could improve or use more support.
Parents can share their feedback by participating in three surveys from the county and the state. The first survey is the school district’s annual Perception Survey. This survey assists with our Results-Based Evaluation System (RBES). The survey can be accessed by following the link below or through the parent portal. Results of the survey help school leaders, teachers, and the district learn what is being done well at each school and what areas need improvement. Your name will not be used and your answers will remain confidential.
The second survey is the Georgia Schools' Parent Survey. This is also called the Department of Education Health Survey, and it is also listed at the top of the page.
The third survey is the Gwinnett County Public School Title 1 Parent Involvement Survey. The survey can be accessed through March 21. Title I schools have the opportunity to tailor programs based on the needs of their students and parents. This survey is your opportunity to share what parents need when it comes to educating their children. Your input is extremely important. The survey will be used by Gwinnett Title I Office and by your school’s Title I Planning Team in developing the Parent Involvement Policy, School-Parent Compact, and Family Engagement Calendar of Events.

Shaketa Gillard - Teacher of the Year
As a passionate and dedicated educator for 16 years, I hold fast to the ripple effect of my position as a Math Instructional Coach. While eagerly watching both my parents dedicate their lives to the profession, my love for teaching began at an early age. I was fortunate enough to begin my teaching career in Miami-Dade County. My philosophy and beliefs about education have grown and evolved over the years. This change can be attributed to the countless inspiring professionals that I have encountered through my educational journey. My endeavor with Gwinnett County began in 2008. I pride myself in creating lessons that are fun, meaningful, and rigorous. My goal when teaching both students and teachers is to instill in them a love for math! I am purposeful. I am driven. And I take joy in being an effective educator. It fills my heart to encounter previous students and to hear their progress in math and their newfound love for the subject! I am overjoyed to know that I have accomplished my professional goal, and that is to create life-long learners who are more than ready to compete on a global scale. I am beyond proud to represent Partee Elementary School as the 2015-2016 Teacher of the Year.

Accelerated Reader at Partee
The Accelerated Reader Program is a computerized program that tests reading comprehension. Students select books on their reading level, read independently, and take an independent comprehension test on the computer. Each book is worth a certain number of points based on its length and reading level. Students get a percentage of these points based on how many of the test questions they get right. The program tracks their progress over the course of the school year.
