Our fifth grade Georgia Writing Test scores have arrived! Our students did an incredible job in their performance on this
test. Ninety-eight percent of our students passed at Levels 2 and 3 with 33% at Level 3. In addition, all of our students
who participated in our Saturday Writing Academy passed! Student reports will be sent home soon.
Our 3rd-5th grade students are finishing the GA CRCT today. They all have done an amazing job! Our teachers have all
worked hard all year to provide quality instruction so that these tests allow kids to “show what they know”. We expect
that the results of these tests will reflect the quality education that you can expect at Camp Creek!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO..........
Did you know that Gwinnett County is home to the LARGEST Relay For Life event in the WORLD?
That's right, the world. We raise more money and have more participants than any other Relay
event anywhere. That is a record to live up to and keep going for. This year Relay For Life and the
American Cancer Society are Celebrating More Birthdays. With all the generous support that Relay receives, we have
more Cancer Survivors having more birthdays each year. But we need YOUR help! We need Birthday supplies; wrapping
paper, hats, plates, napkins, decorations, anything with Happy Birthday theme. Anything that you could donate would
be appreciated. Just drop it at the front office! Thanks for all your support at Relay. And come by site 379-390 at the
Relay Event on May 7th to see the Parkview Cluster Relay Team in action.
