Happy New Year to all of our George School families

Welcome Back! It is good to get everyone back in the swing of things! In the spirit of the New Year, our students wrote about how they want to "Make their Mark this Year". Students said they want to be a good friend, be honest, respectful and kind! So proud of these role models!
