Welcome to George Washington Academy! We have wonderful new and exciting plans for the 2015-2016 school year!
I know that many of you have been watching the progress (or lack thereof) on our new school site behind Dollar General. Without going into too much detail there have been a lot of issues with the developer and contractors. The bottom line is that Murphy’s Law often steps in and things take longer than planned. I have spoken with our administration this last week and daily check in our plans. We are exploring all of our options to provide the best and safest environment for our students.
School will begin August 12. Grades K-6 will attend from 8:00-3:00; grades 7 and 8 will attend from 8:00-3:20. We will get the bell schedule of recess time and lunch out to you as soon as it is finalized. I have been posting these type of items on our George Washington Academy Facebook page. The administration webmaster is working on our website as we speak and it will be populated by calendars and notices. The webpage is http://www.edkey.org/ There is a pull down labeled schools. I just checked and we are not on there right now. Please feel free to continue to check periodically. In the meantime, check us on FB.
We will be hosting an open house/meet the teacher evening on August 10th from 5:30-7:30 at our W. Center St. building. We planned it early enough for those of you who wish to have family time later that evening. We have an amazing team of teachers. Come meet them and you will be as excited about this coming year as I am.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call me personally at 536-6526. I would love to visit with you.
We are looking forward to this school year. Life gave us some lemons and we have made lemonade! Come share it with us.
