"George School PSO Rocks!"

Thank you PSO for Tricky Tray!

This past Wednesday, 2/28/18, I got to attend my first George School Tricky Tray at Seasons. This incredible event far exceeded my expectations! It was a fabulous evening, with so many amazing gifts and prizes. I want to thank the PSO for all their hard work preparing for this event, and for all the generous donations that made this evening so special. Please know that the school truly appreciates your continual support. It was a wonderful event and a great time was had by all!

Thank you PSO for supporting all our Read Across America activities!

Thank you to the the PSO for supplying our giant bowl of goldfish and Gift Certificate for 'Guess the Goldfish' contest and for our school wide craft done in Media class this week. Our 'Fox in Sox' bulletin board displaying all the children's "socks" will be up next week. Congratulations to our winner Peter Noone for guessing the closest number of Goldfish in our giant Fish Bowl! Thank you also to Mrs. Breen for organizing these events this week!

Thank you for your help each morning to the dedicated PSO Red Flag Team!
