George Washington School

Welcome to George Washington School!

As the new principal of George Washington School, it is an honor to become a new member of this wonderful school community.  I would like to take the time to announce some exciting changes coming for the 2017-2018 school year.

I would like to announce the commencement of the new intermediate program at George Washington School for all 5th and 6th grade students.  With this new model, students will be learning the necessary 21st century skills for success in middle and high school. Intermediate students will have a homeroom in which they will participate in an ELA block and from there will rotate with their class to content areas of Social Studies, Science and Mathematics.

At George Washington School, we are dedicated to delivering differentiated instruction to ensure learning of all students.  This year each student will be provided with targeted intervention during a designated Response to Intervention block, which will focus on building foundational literacy and mathematical skills. We also use Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) to teach pro-social skills and behaviors.  This year, there will be continued modifications made to best meet the needs of students.  In addition to our weekly social skills group, each classroom will have a daily PBIS time block to further develop these skills.  Also, a new level system will be introduced to provide privileges based on exemplary behaviors. Classroom teams will be collaborating to best ensure your child’s learning and social needs are met across all learning environments

A crucial factor in any student’s success is family involvement.  I encourage you to become active members in your child’s education.  Please feel free to contact me at 518-283-5752 with any questions or concerns. I am very excited for the opportunity to be a part of your child’s school experiences and am looking forward to a wonderful school year!
