News and Announcements

June 22, 2015

Greetings Staff, Parents, and Families of George Middle School,

My name is Lavert Robertson, the new Principal at GMS.  It is my privilege and honor to join the George community.  I am looking forward to an exciting year of learning and growing with our students and working with our professional staff and you, our greater school community.

As your principal, I would like take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about my educational experience.  I possess over fourteen years educational experience spanning grades K-12 with the majority of my career focusing on educational leadership and reform.  I started my educational career as a teacher at King Elementary School before going to Whitaker Middle School as a student management specialist.  In 2005, the Champagne, Illinois School district where I served as a vice principal recruited me.  In 2007, I returned to PPS to become the small school administrator for the Arts and Technology Academy at Jefferson High School, followed by serving four years as vice principal of Franklin High School.  In 2012 I became principal of César Chávez K-8 School.

I will work hard to continue the efforts and the initiatives that have been established at George by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners.  My focus for the upcoming school year will be on character development, 21st Century skills, fostering a nurturing safe environment for children, use of data to inform instruction, consistent implementation of effective instructional strategies to increase students’ achievement, and providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.  Working together as a team with our staff and parents, I am committed to helping each student achieve their very best.  Every student is valued and worthy of our best efforts.

I am very passionate about education and especially the middle school years.  This is an important and critical time of transition – moving from the elementary school experience and preparing for the bigger challenge of high school.  What takes place during these three years will have a lasting impression on their development and growth.

Slam poetry is when people read their poems without music about their life, their experiences or problems they feel should be expressed. Our slam poetry event on May 20, 2015 was a total success. There were very deep poems like Raul’s poem,he talked about his family in his poem. His poem was about all the injustice that he went through. Afterwards a professional poet complemented his poem. The students poets were Delaina, Raul, Ihe, Jesus, Chloe, Reyjon, Isabelle, Lorashia, Alasinae.
