Program Overview

Welcome

George Hall - A Strong Community Dedicated to Student Success!

The 2017-2018 School year will start on Tuesday, August 15, 2017, and it is a full day schedule for grades first - fifth.  We have 21 classrooms this year, providing engaging, hands on learning experiences and integrated instruction through Project Based Learning. We are excited to offer Transitional Kindergarten for children turning five September 2 - December 2. George Hall is a diverse student population and we offer a wide range of programs from preschool - fifth grade. This year we are in full implementation of PBIS - Positive Behavior Interventions and Support. We started the year with our behavior expectations for the playground/yard, hallway, lunch court and bathrooms and focus on teaching expected behavior, recognizing students strengths and providing counseling and support through social/emotional learning. We are enthusiastic about our mascot Jojo Jaguar and strive to be safe, respectful and responsible.  We have an active, caring group of parent and community volunteers through our PTA.  We are focused on providing art instruction, technology for classrooms and engaging, updated classroom libraries, so all children can read at their instructional level on a daily basis.  This year we will be implementing a new English Language Arts/English Language Development  curriculum and teaching with a workshop model.  Our culture and climate is inclusive and engaging, making George Hall and warm, joyful place to learn and grow.
