  • 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 George Kelly Families,
 
December has arrived and 2016 is quickly coming to an end. We have many exciting things happening at George Kelly for our students! Students are busily at work in their classrooms and computer labs. I see wonderful collaboration and use of group work bringing a deeper meaning to difficult concepts for students.
 
December means our fantastic Holiday Shop is here for our students! Students are able to purchase reasonably priced gifts for friends and family for the quickly approaching holidays. George Kelly’s annual Winter Wonderland is also right around the corner on Friday, December  9th from 6-7:30pm. Come join the fun of shopping, taking a picture with Santa and Mrs. Claus, watching some wonderful performances, and enjoying the holiday spirit!
 
Winter break is quickly approaching and many of the students are looking forward to spending time together with their family. Enjoy your traditions and make happy memories. Remember to keep people in need in your thoughts. Have a wonderful and fun filled vacation!
 
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!!!
 
Sincerely,
 
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
