George School's Family Update

September 8, 2017

Welcome Back George School Families!

What a fantastic first week! Despite our weather on Wednesday, our first week got off to an incredible start. I am so happy to be a part of such a supportive, child- centered community and enjoyed getting to know your children this week in class and at lunch and recess. All of the students have adjusted nicely to their new classrooms and took part in so many fun, and engaging activities. I have also enjoyed getting to meet many of you at the 'Meet and Greet' , Kindergarten Parent Breakfast or just at dismissal and drop off. I am very grateful for the warm welcome and look forward to a fabulous year. It's always a great day to be a Cardinal!

Spirit Day, Tuesday 9/12/17

This Tuesday we will be having our First George School Spirit Day where we will focus on our "6 Pillars of Character": Trustworthiness, Responsibility, Respect, Caring, Fairness, and Citizenship, and how we will recognize our students who exhibit these positive behaviors on a regular basis through our Kind Cardinal Ticket system.


During this Spirit assembly we will also introduce this year's 5th grade Peer P.A.L.S. who will serve as peer role models.


Please remind your children to wear one of their George School shirts, or anything red to show their school spirit on each Spirit Day.
