George School's Family Update

December 2, 2017

The Good Work at George School Continues!

Students again showed their selflessness as they worked together during their lunch time to make decorations for 'Snowballs for Soldiers'. The ornaments will help decorate the bases for the soldiers during their assignments to help brighten their Holiday. Our Character Trait of the month for December is Trustworthiness! And we can trust our students to step up and think of others. We will be talking about ways to foster trustworthiness as a foundation for character and relationships with others, culminating with an Character Education and Spirit assembly on 12/18/17.

Holiday Shop 12/6 & 12/7

The George School holiday shop will be open for students on Wed. 12/6 and Thursday 12/7. Check your child's schedule to see when they will be shopping.
