George School's Family Update
October 22, 2017
First Annual "Trunk or Treat" at Jessie George School
October Notes from our School Counselor, Mrs. Rachel Guyt
The Month of October has been a month to raise awareness for many different reasons. Our students raised awareness for being a kind friend during our "Week Of Respect." They have participated in school-wide, classroom activities to acknowledge Anti-Bullying Prevention Month and what it means to be an Upstander.
To close out the month of October, we will be holding a very special spirit day on Thursday, October 26th to commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month, as well as, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Childhood Cancer Awareness Month was held during September and we would like to take the opportunity next week to acknowledge both events. We are asking students K-2nd to wear the color pink and students 3rd-5th to wear the color yellow. We will be taking a school wide ribbon picture on this day, to show our love, support, and unity for the families in our community and families everywhere that have been affected by these illnesses.
Thank you so much for your support!
