• Welcome to George Washington School!

    At George Washington School we are committed to providing every student with an educational foundation that will enable them to achieve success in the future grades. Our dedicated educational team takes pride in promoting a love for learning and creating a learning community where every child’s natural intellect is nurtured.

    We understand that the early years are critical in igniting a passion for inquiry, developing self-determination, learning social emotional competencies and acquiring important academic precursors. Therefore, our daily routines include intervals of active and sedentary components, opportunities for whole group, small group and independent work and instruction that meets the needs of diverse learners.  

    As parents of young children, we welcome you as partners in helping make these first years of school meaningful and memorable. We also count on your support in making sure your child comes to school ready to learn every day and develops a positive perception of school. Therefore, it is important that you talk to your child about your appreciation for their teacher and school. Having conversations about concepts discussed in class and participating in school events are ways to strengthen the home school connection and support us in caring for and teaching your child.

    As principal of this great school, I thank you for entrusting us with your children.  I look forward to working with you and to many years of continued educational success.

     

    Sincerely,

    Jarlyn Veras
