Special Diet or Food Allergies

Mrs. Hunter has the "Diet Prescription for Meals at School " form that will need to be completed by the physician. Please let us know if you need this form. If you have submitted one in the past, please be reminded that the form is only current for that school year and that a new form must be completed for the 2018-2019 year.

Counselor News - Mrs. Haley

Greetings, George Hall family!

The beginning of the new school year has been exciting for students and staff! During the month of August, students learned about the many roles of the school counselor. 3rd-5th-grade students learned how to visit the school counselor through the self-referral process. In addition, students practiced how to assess their problem’s size and urgency.

September is Attendance Awareness month! Students are participating in a school-wide challenge throughout the month for a chance to enter a drawing for a classroom party, and a $100 gift card for classroom supplies! Please help your student’s classroom by ensuring 100% percent attendance and zero tardiness throughout September.

Students will begin their character education counseling lessons. September’s focus will be Positive Communication through active listening, I-messages, and apologies. Teachers will choose one student each month in their class who exemplified the monthly character trait. These students will receive a special reward from the counselor! I will continue to work with students individually and small group sessions for students who need additional academic or social-emotional support. If you would like your student to be considered for small group or individual counselor check-ins, don’t hesitate to contact me:
