PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE
Dear St. George Parents,

Our campus is buzzing with activity and it is an exciting time at St. George as we prepare for the Auction and Spirit Day. You can participate in the Auction just by eating dinner next week. That’s right, St. George has partnered with different local restaurants who have generously agreed to give a percentage of their proceeds from St. George families back to St. George just for eating there. See the list of participating restaurants below. 

Many of the auction items are already live so take advantage of the weekend and start checking them out. You don’t want to miss your chance to buy a raffle ticket for Principal of the Day so your child(ren) can lead the school and participate in a fun-filled day of activities as the Principal. The Homeroom with the most Principal of the Day tickets sold will receive a smoothie party and an Out-Of-Uniform day! Register for the St. George Auction to purchase raffle tickets and bid on items here.

Spirit Day is also around the corner and the students are working together as grade levels to prepare their theme and banners. The Home and School Association has planned a day filled with activities including relay races, music, dancing, treats, games and much more. Don’t forget to turn in your Tuition Raffle tickets in hopes of winning free tuition and having Father Yi, Father Paul and myself participate in a “Be the Best Chicken” competition. We hope it is a sunny and beautiful day so we can all show our St. George Spirit!

Mrs. Angele Fontenot, M. Ed.
