Dear St. George Families,
Give thanks to the Lord; for He is good Psalm 107
Do you practice gratitude daily? Research by Giacomo Bono of Cal State Fullerton, suggests that practicing gratitude at a young age promotes
development of self-control and self-regulation which are resources for life-long success. Also, grateful youth have higher GPAs, experience more
positive emotions and go on to live more meaningful lives. Middle school students, in particular, convey an increased sense of hope and trust
in others as well as a desire to give back to their community.

Reminder: Emergency Weather Procedure
In case of inclement weather, St George School will announce any delays or cancellations on our school website by 6:30 a.m. If the Seattle Public Schools are closed due to weather, you can assume we will be closed, too.
In addition, we will communicate this information to KING, KIRO and KOMO media outlets. However, because of changes in their reporting policies, we cannot ensure whether, or when, announcements will appear. In cases of delay where we have a 10:00am opening, there will be NO Morning Care Program. Students may arrive at 9:45 am, no earlier as staff will be running late, too.
Ultimately, our highest priority is the safety of our students, families and staff. Regardless of the official start status of the school, we always defer to parents in the use of their own best judgment with regard to whether, and when, it is safe for their children to come to school. When weather conditions dictate that families cannot accommodate the regular school schedule, the school will respect those decisions and consider those excused absences or tardies.
SAVE THE DATE!
