Faculty Spotlight

Mrs. Rogers, PreKindergarten

Mrs. Rogers is now in her 17th year at Saint George School! Time sure has flown by as many of her former students are now in college! Mrs. Rogers begins each day with our youngest students singing their morning meeting routine. Weather, date, and events of the day, just ask our PreK! Mrs. Rogers continues another year of preparing our youngsters for the days and years ahead, filling their little heads with big ideas. We are delighted to have you with us, Mrs. Rogers!

Mrs. Brook, Kindergarten

This year, we welcome Mrs. Brook to our staff! Mrs. Brook is already feeling at home thanks to the kindness and support of our kindergarten and school communities. Mrs. Brook spent the weeks before school began setting up her classroom with a Pete the Cat theme, which is one of her favorite children's books. Already, our kindergartens have learned several letters, their sounds, numbers, colors, and shapes! Ask a kindergartner what they learned in school today and you won't be disappointed. Thank you, Mrs. Brook, for joining our family!

Madrinas Program at SGS

The Madrinas Program at Saint George School is coordinated by our Spanish Instructor, Ms. Celeste Colon. Together, we will work to welcome families of different cultural backgrounds into our faith-centered educational community.
