Greetings Great George Washington Elementary School Families!!

I hope everyone is doing well, keeping in good spirits and enjoying some memorable time with family and friends. With the summer break only weeks away from ending, it gives me great pleasure to greet you as we eagerly await the beginning of what will be a marvelous 2016-2017 school year! Our hearts are full of joy as we excitedly await the first day of school on Monday, August 29th! Throughout the summer months, our staff has been working diligently to ensure that everything is fully prepared for our brilliant and amazing students. As a staff, we are so thankful for the opportunity to educate and serve your wonderful family. The work of developing, nurturing, supporting and uplifting our students to fulfill their maximum potential as learners is our collective purpose. As your principal I am deeply honored and humbled to serve every stakeholder within our wonderful school community, especially our brilliant GW students. Please continue to accept my deepest gratitude for your amazing support, volunteerism, assistance and presence. At George Washington we believe our school is built upon the partnership of our staff, parents, students, extended families, community members and business partners. Together, as one team, and one school family, we can ensure our children achieve extraordinary success.

In closing, I want to emphasize how incredibly excited we are for the 2016-2017 school year! We eagerly await the return of our brilliant boys and girls, who inspire us each and every day. They are our future leaders of tomorrow. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at 410-396-1445 or stop by our main office between 8:00 and 3:00 PM (Monday-Friday). Have a safe and fulfilling rest of the summer- and we will see you all soon!
