Principal's Weekly Newsletter

January 12, 2023

Hello St. George Families,

It’s time to schedule mid-Winter conferences. The homeroom teachers will be reaching to all families with time available for conferences. Though some conferences are set-up by teacher requests, all families are welcome to schedule a meeting with their child’s teachers. Please email each teacher for available times.

We continue to offer students in Grades 4-8 Working Lunch and After School Study Hall options to get extra homework help, support for test preparation or group project times. We encourage parents to check PowerSchool weekly to keep tabs on their children’s progress. I am proud of how many students are learning to advocate for themselves when it comes to seeking extra help or checking for missing work after illnesses!

Catholic Schools Week is January 29- February 4. See the attached flyer for information about all the activities the student council has planned.

THANK YOU to all the families who have volunteered to help at any of the six Catholic Schools’ Week Parish Masses at St. Peter, St. George, St. Edward and St. Paul, the weekend of 1/28 & 1/29 and 2/4 & 2/5.

We will be hosting coffee and donuts after each Mass. We hope that all of our school families who are parishioners at each of those churches will join us at Mass. We ask the students to dress in their full school uniforms and parents in their St. George Swag to celebrate our school. We encourage older siblings in our Catholic High Schools or Catholic University to wear theirs too! Catholic education is alive and well in Western Washington!

Save the Date for Wed. February 1 from 11:30-1:00 as we bring back our annual FAMILY LUNCHEON. We invite all parents to come have lunch with their kids! Parents can order their lunches through the February lunch menu with their kids: Chicken adobo is lunch of the day. Otherwise, parents can bring in a special lunch for them and their kids. We will all eat as one big family!
