Dear St. George Families,
 
St. George School and all schools in the Diocese are accredited through Advanced ED. Every five years we go through the Accreditation process. It is time to do so again. Part of the process is to gather information from our shareholders. School faculty and staff have recently taken a survey to gather data. Students in grades 6-8 have also taken a survey.
 
We are asking all parents to complete the parent survey. Your input is important and will help is on our journey of continuous improvement. The survey may be accessed HERE.  Please complete the survey prior to February 20th.
 
As an extra incentive, all students who have at least one parent complete the survey will earn an Out-Of-Uniform day on Friday, February 21st. This will be monitored on the honor system.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
 
God bless,
Jack Nelson
