Wonderful Walk a thon! George School raised over $4,200.00 in honor of the Saunders and Skuches Families! Thank you to all the parent volunteers and the children for all the walking. So proud to be part of such a generous community!

Halloween Parade - 10/31 at 1:15PM

We make two laps around the soccer field with a picture-taking Zone in the middle of the field for parents to stand in order to take pictures. Students will exit the building from the back door near the soccer field and head to the left to begin the laps. Parents are asked to gather on the soccer field to wait for the children to exit the building and begin the parade laps. We will re-enter the building through the same door after making 2 complete laps around the soccer field. Class moms will have the opportunity to take a class picture during the celebration following the parade and will share the photo with the rest of the parents in the class. Hope to see you there!

Also, in celebration of Halloween, 10/31 will be our no homework night for this month. Enjoy the time with family and friends.

The role of the school nurse is the health and wellness of the school community.

Read for the Record 2018 - News from our Media Specialist - Mrs. Lisa Breen

Yesterday, our entire school participated in trying to break a "reading" world record. Jumpstart's Read for the Record is when all children listen to the same book on the same day. After just celebrating Unity day on Wednesday, we had our own unity by having all "special" staff members read to our classes! The students really enjoyed the day!

George School had 250 students participate.
