  • Welcome to 23-24!

    Dear George Mustang Families,                                                                                                                                                    

    We are getting ready for another exciting school year! We hope you are having a restful and enjoyable summer, filled with cherished moments with loved ones. As the new academic year begins, we are thrilled to reconnect with our returning families and extend a warm greeting to all our new families joining the George Mustang community.

    As we prepare for the school year together, we are eager to build upon the achievements and progress of our George Mustang community. Your ongoing support and partnership are essential to the success of your student, our school and our larger St. John’s community. We remain committed to fostering an inclusive and supportive learning environment that nurtures each student's unique talents and abilities. Our primary goal is to create well-rounded individuals who are not only academically proficient but also compassionate, creative, and critical thinkers.

    Throughout the year, you can expect open communication from us. Our doors are always open, and we encourage you to reach out to us with any questions or concerns you may have. Parent-teacher conferences, PTA meetings, and school events will provide ample opportunities for us to come together and collaborate in your child's educational journey.

    At George, we believe that family involvement is critical to the success of our school. Whether it's volunteering in the classroom, participating in school activities, or supporting your child's learning at home, your engagement plays a crucial role in enhancing their educational experience.

    The new school year promises to be full of exciting opportunities, growth, and achievements. Together, as a close-knit community, we will make this academic year a memorable and successful one.

    With pride and gratitude, 

    Your George Administration Team

    Today, we started the state-led mediation process with one priority: our children’s success. We offered compromises that would keep that vision at the heart of our work – and maintained our position on proposals that would negatively impact students.
