 WHAT'S HAPPENING

 
  • Thank you so much to everyone that participated in the All for Books Change Drive! Our students (and staff) are very generous. We were able to collect $2095.70 this year, blowing away our collection amount of $1440 from last year. I am sure Case for Kids will be over the moon when they receive $2095.70 worth of books to give to the many foster children that they help.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  •  
  • Music Department - Choir practice every Wednesday 3-3:30PM in Room 42
  • Staff Parking Lot
    • New signs have been posted in our staff parking lot. The staff parking lot is ONLY for staff and requires a permit to park in this area. Any vehicle parked in this area without a permit will be cited or towed by city officials. To ensure safety, our parking lot is monitored by the Tracy Police Department.
  • Parents please DO NOT use the parking lot as a drop off or pick up area! It is not safe for the children.
  • Attendance is IMPORTANT!
    • Teachers cannot teach students who are not in school. There is strong evidence that shows regular attendance can result in significant improvements in test scores.
    • Each month, our school goal is 98% attendance.
  • Closed Campus
    • All visitors must sign in at the office and wear a visitor's sticker.  We are a closed campus for the safety of all our students.

 PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

 
 
Dear Kelly Families,
 
              The 2016-2017 school year is moving right along and the 2nd trimester is coming to a close as of February 10th!!  We are more than halfway through the year, yet there is much, much, more to come in the upcoming months.
              The George Kelly PTO has been busy this year working on various events such as Fall Festival and movie nights.  To learn more about what PTO has in store for the remainder of the year, come join the PTO meetings the first Wednesday of every month in the library. The next meeting is February 1st at 3:00pm. There will also be PTO positions opening for the 2017-2018 school year. We welcome everyone to come have a voice in making George Kelly the best school in Tracy! We look forward to seeing you there.
              Smarter Balanced testing is coming up soon for 3rd through 8th grade students! Students are continuing to work hard both in the classrooms and at home in preparation!  Typing is an important skill students will need for the Smarter Balanced testing. Make sure to be practicing your typing! A good website to practice is: www.how-to-type.com!
 
 
Dr. Jeanine Wilson, Principal
 
 

 Assistant Principal Message

 
 
Dear George Kelly Families,
 
Due to the increase of traffic during the dismissal hours we have set these procedures to ensure the safety of our students and staff. When picking up children at dismissal times, please remember the following:
 
1.)    Vehicles are only allowed to park along the curb or in the driveway 10 minutes before release time. For example, Monday students are released at 1:15pm, so vehicles will be allowed to wait along the curb or in the drive way starting at 1:05pm, but not before.
 
2.)    Pull ALL the way forward when coming through the pick-up line. We are trying to move as many cars through as quickly as possible to keep traffic flowing.
 
3.)    When exiting the driveway, turning right helps the flow of traffic. If you turn right exiting the driveway, and then left at the next available street, Carol Ann Drive, you will do a loop and end up back on Golden Leaf Lane. By taking this route YOU will help the flow of traffic and avoid possible accidents.
 
4.)    Obey the rules of the road…we have requested an increase in Tracy Police Department’s presence. It is illegal to do a U-Turn over a double yellow line, crossing without using the crosswalk (jaywalking), as well as pulling alongside of a parked vehicle to have a child enter into a vehicle. These are all illegal and major safety hazards.
 
5.)    Parents please wait on either side of the caution tape. Students are not allowed to run around and play on the front concrete area, or the grass area by the bike rack.
 
6.)    If you would like to help keep our dismissals safe, please sign up for our “Afternoon Angels,” to help make sure our students, staff, and parents are safe. Please see Mrs. Rocio in our office to add your name to our list. I would personally like to thank ALL of the “Afternoon Angels” who have volunteered so far-we appreciate your presence.
 
We appreciate and thank you in advance for following our dismissal procedures. This will help keep everyone safe at George Kelly School.
 
Sincerely,
 
Ms. Mary Petty
Assistant Principal
