Dear St. George Families,
 
Happy New Year! It's hard to believe that we have already reached the mid-point of the school year. I hope that everyone brings a "can do" attitude and enthusiasm for the balance of the school year. These coming months are some of the most important months of the school year. With that said, there are questions that arise about upcoming events as families ready themselves for the upcoming months.
 
One of those things is the School Calendar for the next school year. We always try to give you this information as soon as possible. For everyone's sake we try our best to coordinate with the EBR School calendar. As of today they have not finalized their calendar for the upcoming school year. I believe that it is pretty safe to assume that the next year's school calendar will be similar to years past.
 
Re-registration for the 2020-2021 school year will be begin on January 24th and continue through January 31st. Late registration will begin on February 1st. Families requesting tuition assistance may pick up the forms from the parish office beginning tomorrow.
 
Our annual School/Parish Auction is coming up on February 1st at L'Auberge. I hope that everyone in our school community will be able to attend. This important fundraiser helps SGS deliver first rate programs and make facilities upgrades that wouldn't be possible otherwise. See you there!!
 
God Bless and Geaux Tigers!!
 
Jack Nelson
