[For Students:

Welcome to another school year at George Street Middle School!  Being ‘in the middle’ is a very special part of your school years and we invite you to enjoy every minute of it!

George Street is a positive, active school, and I know I speak for all of your teachers when I say we truly want you to be happy during your stay here.  Your administration, guidance counselors, and teaching teams are all working together to do “whatever it takes” in order to help you have a positive experience, so please don’t hesitate to talk to one of us if something in your school life is not going well.

Below is our Statements of Student Rights and Responsibilities that we adhere to as a school:

1.       I have a right to learn at George Street Middle School.

 

It is my responsibility to listen to instructions, to work diligently, never give up  and to follow general classroom guidelines set by my teachers.

 

2.       I have a right to hear and be heard.

 

It is my responsibility not to talk, to shout, to make loud noises, or to otherwise distract or disrupt when others are speaking.

 

3.       I have a right to be respected at George Street Middle School.

 

It is my responsibility not to annoy, to harass other people, or to otherwise hurt their feelings.

The  statements tells a lot about what we believe is important in our school.  Understanding each statement is the first step toward success!  Please read and discuss with your parents. 

Finally, I invite you to work hard, make friends, and get involved in school activities. Being highly a engaged student taking full advantage of everything that George Street Middle School has to offer you will make your middle school years very rewarding.  I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you.

Dear Parents,

At George Street School, we try on a daily basis to reflect our concern for your children and our awareness of the uniqueness of the middle level years.  You may not need to be reminded that it is not easy being the caregiver of a middle level child!  Please keep in mind that it is in fact, not always easy being a middle level child; nor is it easy being a teacher of middle level students. However, we will all instill in your child a sense that never giving up and persevering is a virtue that makes learning a rewarding endeavor.

We look forward to having your family as part of our GSMS educational community for 2016-2017 !

P. Plourde, Principal
