Principal's News

From the Desk of Mr. Norman...

Dear Parents and Guardians:

I'd like to take this opportunity to wish each of you a peaceful and safe holiday season! Now that we are beginning our winter months please plan accordingly for school closings and delays. In the event of snow, please check the Lakeland Central School District website, along with tuning into WHUD for closings and delays. 

We would like to welcome Mr. George Turner as our new evening security aide. Mr. Turner has a rich history of law enforcement as he is a retired police officer. Mr. Turner has also served as a security aide in other school districts and is familiar with school settings. His responsibilities will include greeting people entering the building during even hours, patrolling the school campus and monitoring all doors of the school to ensure the building is secure. Please take the time to meet Mr. Turner and welcome him to the G.W community.

During this month, George Washington Elementary will have the pleasure of hosting the Board of Education monthly Business Meeting on December 13, 2018 7:30 p.m. During this meeting our building level administration will present on George Washington's 2018-19 school goals and strategic plan. Please feel free to join us!

The George Washington School Chorus has been working diligently and enthusiastically for the upcoming Winter Concert.  The concert is scheduled for 7:00 P.M. on Wednesday, December 5thIt will take place at Walter Panas High School.  All performers should arrive at 6:30p.m. Neat, nice, and festive attire has been requested for this performance.  We look forward to sharing the spirit of the season with you.

Please join our school's PTA and consider attending meetings in order to show support for the GW school community. The next meetings will take place on the first Monday of February and we would love to have more families attend.

Please remember that no child should be dropped off at school prior to 8:10 a.m. unless he/she is involved in the breakfast club, before school activities, chorus, band, or orchestra rehearsal.

When visiting George Washington Elementary School, all visitors must sign-in at the main office with Ms. Rosario-Perez and wear a visitor tag before proceeding to their destination.  All doors are locked during school hours, therefore everybody must come through the main lobby entrance during the school day.  

Thank you. 

Tracy Norman
