Welcome To George Hall Elementary School!

Welcome Back and Happy New Year 2015

School resumes on Monday, January 12, 2015 at 8:00 a.m.  Please make every attempt to arrive on time.  Attendance is critical to student achievement and academic success.  During the first trimester we had 88 students with perfect attencance and 128 students with outstanding attendance.  We appreciate the effort in getting to school every day and on time.  We will continue to log and acknowledge this success.

Do you have a child who will be attending Transitional Kindergarten or Kindergarten in August 2015?  There is an informational meeting on January 13 at the Bayside Stem Theater.  Please attend this meeting to learn about enrollment and transfer procedures.  Please plan to attend at 9:00 a.m. or 6:00 p.m.  For more information, see the attached file below. If you currently have a child in Transitional Kindergarten or Kindergarten, you do not need to attend this meeting or enroll in school.  

Playground update - the Kindergarten and lower grade playground are open for students to use during the day.  The upper grade playground is being completed and should be ready when students return on January 12.  During the winter when it gets dark at 5:00 p.m., the playground is not open in the evening Monday - Thursday.  It will be accessible on the weekend.
