  • Support GW’s Food Pantry

    By in Announcements on

    GW’s Food Pantry needs help from people shopping at Sam’s Club and Costco. As a reminder – we don’t want you going out shopping on a special trip for us. Only get extra if you have to go already. Stay Safe. Stay Healthy. Stay Home.

    The food pantry is currently supporting over thirty families with bi-weekly food deliveries. While they have a number of gift cards to distribute to families to support weekly grocery costs, the pantry is running low on actual food items

    If you are going to Costco or Sam’s Club in the upcoming weeks, can you pick up one of the following?

    • sets / boxes of pasta
    • pasta sauce
    • sets of tuna or canned chicken
    • box sets of Mac & Cheese
    • box of oatmeal packets
    • ramen soup cases
    • canned soup
    • canned veggies
    • canned fruit
    • canned beans

    Additionally, any gift cards for $20 are appreciated but not as critical as food product.

    Please contact jonellherndon@yahoo.com to coordinate socially distant drop-off/pick-up of these items.

    Thank you for the consideration and help procuring food.

  • Online Learning Day 1

    By in Announcements, Online Learning on

    Dear GW Community –

    Thank you to all of our students and staff for engaging in our first day of online learning. Additionally I want to thank everyone for your patience with one another as we navigate our first week in this new learning environment.

    Students, don’t forget to check-in each day using the Google Form posted on our website at 7:00am. We will also send out an email every morning with the link.

    We will continue to check in with our community this week. We will address challenges as they arise, and operate with the understanding that everyone is acting with the best intent. As we have stated, we will monitor and evaluate how our systems are serving our students and allow for adjustments and innovation as we move forward.

    One piece of feedback we have heard from our students today is that it’s difficult to navigate how each teacher is using Schoology – where exactly lessons and resources are posted versus classroom updates and teacher messages.

    We are working with our staff to create consistency across the board in how Schoology is being utilized. We will share an update with you on Friday addressing this specific concern and what changes you can expect to see as we head into Week Two.

    Sincerely,
    Kristin Waters, Ph.D.
    Principal | George Washington High School

  • Online Learning Starts April 7

    By in Announcements, Online Learning on

    Dear GW Community – 

    Tomorrow morning we start online-learning! 

    Students, if you haven’t already, please read through GW’s Online Learning Plan and then get started tomorrow by logging into each of your courses in Schoology. Our teachers will have assignments and lessons posted by 7:00am and are ready to resume instruction. The first set of assignments is due by 6:00pm on Sunday, April 12.

    Our teachers are eager to reconnect with our students, and we know there will be joy, sadness, and and grief as we share our experiences over the past three weeks. As we navigate these next months together I encourage you to act with compassion as we all find our footing. Our community is already experiencing tragic loss, and in the days and weeks to come, we must continue to lift our Patriots up with the love, kindness, and courageous spirit that define us. We are facing an incredible challenge, but we are strong, we are resilient, and we will find our way through this, together. 

    With overwhelming Patriot Pride, 
    Kristin Waters, Ph.D.
