  • Dear George Community,

     

    Welcome to 2017

     

    As the saying goes time flies when you are having fun, and this year is truly living up to it. We have already completed 40% of the school year and are ready to march through the next 6 months accomplishing all of our goals set forth at the beginning of the school year. As I always I say it is a group effort to get our students where they need to be, and you as parents play an integral role in that process.  Working side by side we can ensure each and every one of our students meets or exceeds their goals, and grows both academically and social-emotionally throughout the process. Transitioning back to the routines of school can at times be difficult for us as adults, but also for our students. If your child is having trouble getting back into the routine of school and you need assistance, our counselors are only a phone call away to assist in any way that they can. To ease the transition here at school we are revisiting our schoolwide CARE expectations with all of our students, as well as reiterating classroom expectations to ensure we are all on the same page after our long period of being away from school. 

     

    Winter Benchmark Testing

     

    Winter Benchmark testing will begin shortly. Benchmark testing is a means of measuring student skills in basic academic subject areas. The student is given brief, timed exercises to complete, using materials drawn directly from his/her academic program. Results tell teachers how individual students are progressing in the areas tested and they provide grade level and school-wide benchmarking information. Please contact your son or daughters Language Arts or Math teacher to review and obtain results of their winter benchmark assessment results.

     

    PTA Meeting on February 8

     

    As a reminder our PTA is having their PTA meeting on February 8th. Dinner will be served at 5:30pm, and the PTA meeting will start at 6:00pm. February 15th is our PTA fundraiser event at Burgerville (8671 N Ivanhoe St.) Come have a burger or a milkshake! 10% of the night’s proceeds come to the George PTA, which supports our students, families and community!

    Can you volunteer for an hour?  We need hosts for this event!  Use our contact page to let us know!  http://georgepta.weebly.com/ . These are great events that our PTA sponsors to raise funds for your children, as they support initiatives like our Breakfast of Champions, the Crew Competition, as well as end of year activities. Please consider donating or attending to assist in supporting our MS PTA, and in turn supporting your child. 

     

    Unified Sports Team Wins!

     

    On Saturday January 28th, the George Middle School Unified Basketball team played a tournament at Forest Grove High School. Along with three amazing para professionals, one speech pathologist and one special education teacher, this team paired extraordinarily capable students with disabilities with positive, helpful middle school partners and created a beautiful team. We played three games which tied us for first place. We brought home the blue ribbon for our George Mustangs! Our students showed so much heart, compassion for others, teamwork and joy! It was a pleasure to witness and be part of. All of the kids were so wonderful! They are stellar, selfless individuals! Well done George Mustangs Unified Basketball, well done!!

     

    New Unified Sports Elective


    We are excited at George Middle school to offer a new elective class for students third quarter, Unified Sports.  Our George Students will help to promote Social Inclusion through Sport Special Olympics through shared sports training and competition experiences with our George Focus classroom students. Unified Sports joins people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team. It was inspired by a simple principle: training together and playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding. In Unified Sports, teams are made up of people of similar age and ability. That makes practices more fun and games more challenging and exciting for all. Having sport in common is just one more way that preconceptions and false ideas are swept away.
