From the Desk of Mr. Norman...
Dear Parents /Guardians:
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year. I am excited to announce George Washington Elementary and the Lakeland School District community has developed a new mission, vision and core set of beliefs focusing on respect. You may view these documents on the school and district website. Also, I am happy to announce my military leave is complete and I have officially resumed my post as Principal. I want to personally thank Dr. Frank Yanoti and the entire community for all of your support during my absence.
The first day of school is Tuesday, September 5, 2017. Your child should report to his/her new teacher by 8:25 a.m. All students in grades K through 5 are scheduled to be in school for a full day and will be dismissed at 2:40 p.m. Supply lists, if needed, are available on the Lakeland CSD Website.
In an effort to minimize the loss of instructional time for children, all elementary schools in the Lakeland CSD will continue the letter day rotation. The letter day rotation consists of A, B, C, D, and E days. Whenever there is a holiday and or snow day we will continue the A, B, C, D, and E day cycle upon return. The letter day will always be posted on the school website. The first day of school is an “A” day.
George Washington will once again offer a Breakfast Club. A permission slip with information regarding the breakfast club is enclosed along with information from our PTA, an E-Mail registration form and a card with your child’s teacher and room number. Please return the forms with your child on the first day of school.
