As we head into what will hopefully be an early Spring, we are so excited about our accomplishments at George Washington so far this year! In addition to our recent parent workshop, Dreambox roadtrip, African Dance and Drumming performance, and all of our wonderful PTA events, we will be celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday on March 2nd, with special events and special guest readers! For all of our students, staff, and families, there is truly much to get excited about.
This month, we also are beginning to send home our school newsletter in both English and Spanish. This is possible through the generous contributions of our PTA members who have volunteered to translate it. We welcome our Spanish-speaking families to enjoy our newsletter each month, and to join us at our school events throughout the year. You are an important part of our community, and we are interested in hearing from you and meeting with you!
This year our 3-5 students will take state assessments in late March (English Language Arts) and early May (Mathematics). More information regarding these assessments will be forthcoming from the district, but it is important, as always, that students are well-rested for these exams, so that they can demonstrate their very best work.
Looking ahead, we'll be sharing more information about our PTA Spring Carnival, 5th Grade culminating events, and this year, our Culture Celebration, to take place in June. As always, we welcome your feedback, your ideas, and your active participation in the life of our school community!
