A message from Ms. Remillard:
March promises more sunshine and the beginning of spring. Here at George Washington School (GWS) we continue working hard and preparing for the upcoming NYS exams. Annual reviews for many of our students will be taking place this month, so please reach out to your child’s teacher with any questions or concerns. It really is a team effort!
At the end of March GWS will have our very first relocation drill, which will require students and staff to practice evacuation procedures. This drill will help us review the process for safely and quickly moving all students and staff off site. More detailed information will be forthcoming.
Our skill of the month for February was “Have Fun, Play fair” which involved a special challenge for students to show sportsmanship in PE class. Stay tuned for the winners! We selected our very first “Students of the Month” and celebrated these students as well as the 100th day of school during our PBIS assembly. For March we will be focusing on the skill “It’s ok to Make Mistakes” to encourage students to persevere when they experience setbacks.
We sent home a letter and flyer for families with questions about “The MOMO Challenge”. That letter and flyer is available here.

At GWS we are making efforts to improve our student’s snack habits. We are asking that parents be mindful of the snacks they bring to school. This website from The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion provides tips for parents in providing healthy snacks!
