Annual AKS Review: October 16–31

The annual review of the Academic Knowledge and Skills (AKS) curriculum begins October 16. Through the review process, staff, parents, and community members can give feedback on new AKS (Academic Knowledge and Skills) standards developed to align with the state's Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS) as well as AKS for new courses. This online review is addressing AKS for a handful of high school mathematics and science courses, 10 fine arts courses, 60 PE and health courses, and nearly 100 career and technical education courses. Input on these new courses will be given via an online survey.

In addition, if there is an AKS you would like to see added, deleted, or revised, please complete the AKS Review Form. This form will be posted online Oct. 20. Please submit your AKS Review Form via email to by Oct. 31.

Curriculum directors will review suggestions and provide comments. On November 18, the GEMS Oversight Committee will review the suggestions and curriculum director comments before making recommendations to the Superintendent for adoption by the Gwinnett County Board of Education.

The surveys are live and can be accessed using the following:

Dress Code Policy:

As part of our vision for unity and school spirit at Summerour Middle School. We believe that students who are dressed for success do better in school. We encourage each student to BtB (Believe the Best). Our mandatory Dress Code Policy allows students to focus on the important part of school, academics. We want each student to be the best they can be.

Sustained Silent Reading: Every Monday!

Every Monday morning our students engage in a block of "Sustained Silent Reading" during their Blue Devil Block. Parents, we would like to enlist your help in getting your students to bring their books and read.

Our teachers are bringing their books and reading. Mrs. Jarrett is bringing her book and reading. Even some of our guests, like Mr. Willis, November's Principal for the Day bring books to read on Monday. Help us get your child reading, by making sure they have a book to read!
