PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE
Dear St. George Parents,

Plans for the end of the year are underway and we are excited to announce that this includes Spirit Day. On Friday, April 30th, the entire student body will join together to celebrate the school year and enjoy fellowship with their classmates. Our Home and School Association has been working tirelessly to create a fun and safe day for all of our students.

The plans, so far, include many of our traditional activities, such as banner presentation, field games, bingo, music, treats and the special 8th grade Louisiana Day.

More details will come as the plans are finalized.

Mrs. Fontenot
Principal

Safety and General Reminders
For the safety of all students and employees, please adhere to the below safety and general reminders:

  • Carpool drivers, please DO NOT pass busses in the bus lane.

  • Carpool Drivers, please do not turn left off Siegen when coming from Perkins to enter the 2nd-5th or 6th-8th carpool line. This blocks the Prek-1st grade line from exiting campus and by-passes the other cars who are waiting in line to enter these carpool lines.

  • Children must stay seated in seats while in the carpool line.

  • Arrive at school on time: School wide morning announcements begin at 7:50. Please arrive at school before 7:45 to allow your child and the teachers enough time to start the day off in prayer with his/her classmates.

  • For the safety of students, faculty, and fellow carpool drivers, please refrain from cell phone use in the carpool line. Please also remain attentive while navigating the carpool line. Thank you for your attention and cooperation.
