  • PRINCIPAL’S SPRING MESSAGE

     Dear families,

    As we enter the last weeks of the school year, we want to remind you about the importance of school attendance. What a wonderful start to Spring we are having with so many students being able to take part in so many exciting activities. From the hugely successful STEM fair, to our many field trips, to our upcoming 8th Grade Promotion and Spring concerts, the Middle School is always bustling with activity and energy. The pace in the classroom is also very quick this quarter, so please encourage your students to stay on top of their assignments and responsibilities so they don’t fall behind.

     

    With the end of the school year quickly approaching, we want to thank each of you for your ongoing support of our students, our teachers and staff, and our mission of supporting and growing every child here at George Middle School. This year has been, and continues to be, a success due to the collective efforts of all in providing opportunities for our students to succeed and grow.

     

    Given there are many fun activities left we want to make sure your child is here to participate! The last day of school for Portland Public Schools this year is June 8th. Our teachers will be here teaching every day until then- Please make sure your child is here too!

     

    Yours respectfully,

     

    Principal Robertson

    AVID Program Information and News

    We have just started 4th quarter. It is a good time to go through your student's binder and help them reorganize it. Students received new purple planners on the first day of the quarter. We encourage parents to check your student's planner weekly to support them with their organizational goal. If your student needs to replace any binder materials they can use their Mustang Bucks at the AVID store.

    As the first semester drew to a close, the 6th graders in AVID were presenting their college research projects and hung their college pennants in the back hall. It was an exciting time for all students as they were enthused about creating a final set of Cornell notes, and saying goodbye to our AVID family- For now! Many of these bright stars hope to continue in AVID in 7th and 8th grade. Interviews will be happening this April for next yearś placement.

     

    Benchmark Assessment

    Growth over time, is of central importance to help us make informed, data-based decisions regarding the extent to which students are benefiting from intervention or regular classroom instruction, or whether changes are warranted. As we recently completed a round of key benchmark assessments for Math and Language Arts, we want to share additional information.

    George students completed their Winter benchmark assessments during the week of January 18th and January 22nd.   Once our benchmark assessments have been tabulated, we will send home a copy of each students’ winter benchmark growth report for Math and Language Arts. If you need additional assistance interpreting the report, or feel your student needs additional support, please contact Ms. Silas. We can discuss various supports we offer at George for servicing students that may be struggling academically particularly in reading and/or Math.

     

     

    A great opportunity for George students and their families

    Did you know that on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, Wednesday of each month a variety of delicious and nutritious food items from local stores are available to George students and their families?  Starting at 3:30 on each of those Wednesday’s George’s own Amy Davis works with other school staff to distribute fresh breads, vegetables, and other items in the front hall next to the office. 

    George students and their families are welcome to stop by and stock up.  In addition to breads and vegetables there are often pastries and salads available too.  We look forward to seeing you there-

    Bring your own bag or take one of ours!
