News and Announcements

Welcome To The 2014/15 School Year

Dear students, families, and friends,
Every year at this time I find myself thinking about how quickly time passes. I am always surprised that the school year is already about to begin. While we may all be a little bit sorry to see the summer passing so quickly. I am always excited to know that very soon the hallways of George Middle School will fill once again with noise from students, teachers, and parents. 

There have been some expected and some unexpected changes at George this year as we welcome 6 new teachers to our team. In addition to the 6 new teachers, we welcome additional new support staff to George as well. As we begin the year we will be introducing both parents and students to our new staff, both in person and via newsletters. Several of these positions are new this year. This increase in staffing has been made possible through an increase in staffing support at George. Join me in welcoming our new staff to George.

I encourage parents and students to review the information included below together. You will find helpful, important need-to-know information. This information is especially helpful as as we begin a new school year.


As always, please if you have any questions, comments, concerns, contact me directly at bkeefer@pps.net or 503-916-6262.

See you all very soon. First day of school is Tuesday, September 2nd!
