  • Dear Families of George MS, 

    It’s amazing to see that the end of the school year has arrived! Together we’ve learned much and shared experiences that will forever remain with us in the years to come. I personally thank you for your support and copious patience you’ve shown over the course of the school year. There were many successes and some challenges, but we continued to keep stride in our goal that every child makes at least 1 year of academic growth. My gratitude goes out to my hard working and caring staff members who have made a huge difference to our students. Their commitment is outstanding and our students are the beneficiaries.

    We had the opportunity to continue our work in increasing student attendance and recognition through our Student Attendance Response Team (SART), which led to an overall increase in Average Daily Attendance. We had great success in building our Tier Fidelity Inventory (TFI) that has led to more efficient systems in place that support student behavior and school climate. In addition, we had tremendous success with the establishment of our school wide values and expectations through communication, achievement, respect, & effort (CARE). Every month we took the time to honor students & staff for their hard work and commitment to CARE during our monthly recognition assemblies. I want to recognize All Hands Raised, formerly known as the Portland School Foundation for their continual commitment and on the grounds efforts in supporting all of the above-mentioned initiatives. We couldn’t do many of these things without you!

    I would like to send a special thank you to Laura & Joe Purkey, Hilivaha Iongi, Veronica Cabrera, & Maria Elena Alvarado, who as leaders of our various parent groups have given their time, dedication, and support in helping us increase parental involvement here at George. Thank you!

    An expression of thanks also goes to all the volunteers who were in classrooms and outside them supporting teachers in everything possible. The strength of our community and wholehearted passion to make our school a wonderful place of learning for all children makes George Middle School truly a special place.


    Student Schedules

    We have been working diligently on next year’s master schedule. As many of you know, our process is to have students pick up their class schedule on the 1st day of school. The only exception will be for 6th graders. They will receive their class schedules early, during the Ice Cream Social that is schedule for Monday, August 28th @ 5:00pm.


    School Supplies

    We will continue to sell complete school supply bundles for $5, which includes a binder, dividers, pencils, pens, erasers, pencil sharpeners, highlighters, and notebook. Parents are also welcome to purchase school supplies on their own.


    With appreciation,

    Lavert T. Robertson, Principal

    George Middle School


    End of the year message

         The school year is almost over and we are saying so long to our students, staff, and parents.  It has been a fantastic year filled with events that have brought us closer together. We could not offer such a rich education to our students without the continuing effort and support that you all give.

         Thank you for an amazing first year at George Middle School, it has been a lot of fun working with your child(ren) this year. As parents/guardians you should be extremely proud of your child as they have grown so much both academically and socially. As we moved closer to summer it makes me realize how fortunate I am to be the assistant principal of George Middle School. It is a special place with amazing kids, supportive parents and a staff that puts the needs of children first.

    Have a wonderful summer and thanks for all of your support.

    Families of 8th Grade Students


    Congratulations 8th Grade!

    Congratulations to the 8th grade class of 2017!!  Last week, we completed State testing.  This week began with a trip to Hug Point and Haystack Rock on the Oregon coast.  We are nearing the end of school and the 8th Grade Promotion Ceremony scheduled for Wednesday, June 14th.


    Our promotion ceremony will be held in the auditorium at Roosevelt High School.  The ceremony will begin at 6:00pm and end at 7:30pm.  Students should arrive at Roosevelt High School between 5:20-5:40p.m.  Due to limited seating in the auditorium, we request that you please limit your number of guests attending the promotion to four.  On Tuesday, June 13th, students will receive 4 tickets to the event.  If guests are traveling with students, please allow enough time to park and still have your student arrive on time.

    AVID-Mock Trial

    Dear Parents, This year for the first time at George Middle School we are hosting the Mock Trial event for AVID students. Mock Trial is a statewide academic program in which middle and high schools compete in a simulated courtroom trial. Students have been studying the same hypothetical case brief and witness statements, conducting legal research, learning courtroom procedures, and preparing both the prosecution and defense sides of the case. The culminating trials will take place on June 12 and 14th, respectively.  


    A Note from Our Band Director

    Our George Middle School Beginning Band has learned a lot of musical information since the beginning of the school year.  Band students learned how to produce sounds on their respective instruments, read musical notation, play along with their classmates, and follow musical directions from the Band Director. The biggest challenge for our students is realizing that there is a great need for them to take their instruments home to practice what is taught during class rehearsals. Practicing is the key factor for them achieving technical accuracy with their instruments.  For a time they were not sure if they would be able to perform a live concert. After rehearsing through our concert music, our Band students have been having epiphany moments realizing that they were better than they thought and began to speak out how good they sound.


    Take Over Day

    On Monday July 12th, our 8th grade students are taking over the school in 8th grade Takeover day. Students submitted applications to "replace" the Staff” of their choice for the afternoon! Of course, we will still supervise this students, but the selected kids will have an opportunity to do what all kids dream to do: run the school!
