George School's Family Update

October 13, 2017

Thanks PSO for sponsoring our Anti-Bullying Brain Challenge Game Show

Wow! Another great week of learning has flown by. Yesterday our students enjoyed

the Anti-Bullying Brain Show Assembly sponsored by the PSO. Students (and teachers) participated in events demonstrating good sportsmanship, how to stand up to bullying, and how to treat each other with respect. They also got to show off, some hula hoop skills, math and spelling skills, and some impressive teamwork. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed this event!

Next week is Anti-Violence Week. On Tuesday our District Security and Safety Specialist, Jon Miller, will be presenting to our students. Please wear something Purple on Tuesday, 10/17 to show our unity as we stand together against violence.

Special thanks to our school counselor, Mrs. Rachel Guyt, for organizing both of these events, and our Fifth Grade Peer Pals for all their help with these events.

Book Fair

We are looking forward to our upcoming Book Fair Thursday 10/19 and Friday 10/20. Thanks to our PSO for setting up this exciting event and thank you to all the parent volunteers for helping with the sales. We really appreciate it. I can wait to buy some books and to hear about what the children are reading.

Parent Teacher Conferences

Please mark your calendars for our upcoming Parent - Teacher Conferences, on Monday 10/23, Tuesday 10/24 and Wednesday 10/25 (Evening Conferences). These conferences are a wonderful opportunity to meet with your child's teachers and hear about all the amazing learning going on in our school. Please note that Monday 10/23 and Tuesday 10/24 are half days due to conferences. Please Note Dismissal time is at 12:45. Wednesday is a full day of school. Conferences are in the evening. I look forward to seeing all of you.
