Welcome George Washington Elementary School Families!
I hope that everyone has had a summer filled with fun times with family and friends! With the school year quickly approaching, it is with great excitement that we begin preparing for the 2018-2019 school year! Throughout the summer months, our staff has been working diligently to ensure we are ready for our Fantastic GW students. This year we are excited to be featuring a new reading program, Wit & Wisdom, for students in grades Kindergarten through Fifth grade. In an effort to increase our technology offerings to students in all grades our building now has wireless internet. We will also be offering HOT BREAKFAST in the cafeteria from 7:30-7:45 each morning beginning Wednesday morning September 5th. This will allow us to pack 15 more minutes of learning into each student’s day! Opening day's breakfast will be a grab and go upon entry. Finally, we will also be introducing our new afterschool program, Paul’s Place at GWES, which will provide FREE afterschool care for the 2018-2019 school year.
I speak for the entire staff when I state how truly grateful and honored we feel to receive the opportunity to work with your children. Ensuring that all GW students are able to reach their maximum potential through the education we provide is our top priority. The teachers and staff would like to invite all families to come to an Open House on Thursday August 30th from 4:00-6:00. This will be a great time to meet your child’s teacher for next school year, sneak a peek at their classroom, and catch up with old friends.
As we prepare for the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year, on the following page there are several updates and reminders to ensure that you have full access to all needed information prior to the first day of school on Tuesday, September 4th. Please know we are always here to support, and we welcome any questions, concerns, or needs you may have. Please feel to reach out to us anytime. Enjoy the rest of your summer – and we can’t wait to see you all soon!
