Dear St. George Families,
 
Happy Valentines Day!
 
I wanted to update you on the progress of our strategic planning process. We are in the data gathering phase of the process. We have surveyed our school staff and our 5 th through 8 th grade students to this point. Now it is time to gather data from our school parents. Below you will find a link to a short survey. The survey may look familiar to some of you as it is the survey that we used for our School Accreditation. We have utilized the information gathered from the survey to guide our School Improvement Plan in years past. This time we will be using the data to guide our 3-5 year Strategic Plan. Your input is needed and we are seeking 100% participation from all of our school families. The link is currently active and will be active until February 28 th. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey. The link is https://eprovesurveys.advanc-ed.org/surveys/#/action/98056/28200As an extra incentive, if we get 80% participation from school families, students will earn an Out-Of-Uniform day later this year!

On February 26th our students will have a training/presentation from former East Baton Rouge Chief of Police Jeff LeDuff and his son Kelly LeDuff regarding our new "Blue Boxes" Security system. All parents are invited to attend, if you are available. We will have two
sessions which will be essentially the same so that you need not attend both. 
Session 1 for grades 6,7, 8 and parents of any grade 8:00am-9:00am 
 
Session 2 for grades 4,5 and parents of any grade 9:15-10:00
 
Thank you for your continued of St. George School.
 
God bless,
 
Jack Nelson
