George Southard's Family News
From Principal Schmitt
I look forward to what the second half of the year will bring!
Please remember to send your children to school with a clean face covering and to stay home if you are sick. Please call the Main Office if your child will be absent and send a written note upon return.
In an effort to add some excitement to Remote Wednesdays, each "Wear-It Wednesday" will have a unique theme:
2/3- Wear your favorite NFL team apparel or colors in celebration of the Super Bowl!
2/10- Wear red, pink, and/or purple in celebration of Valentine's Day!
2/17- No School! Have fun!
2/24- Dress like your 100 years old in celebration of the 100th day of school!
We look forward to "seeing" your children on Wednesdays!
2/9 (BLUE) & 2/12 (GOLD & REMOTE)- Valentine's Day Celebrations
2/15-2/19- No School- Mid Winter Recess
2/23 (BLUE) & 2/26 (GOLD)- 100th Day of School Celebrations
Throughout the month, GS students will be learning about Black History and showcasing their learning through a school-wide "museum" experience. Since we can't go on a field trip, the field trip will come to us!
