  • 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,
 
 
Welcome back to the 2016-2017 school year!
 
The George Kelly staff is energized and enthusiastic to start a year full of new exciting activities and learning.  We look forward to working with the students and parents collaboratively for the most successful year possible for our American Eagles!!  Parents and students will be able to find out who their teacher will be as of Friday, August 5th at 5:00 pm when class lists will be posted. I hope to see all of you at the many events we host throughout the year starting with the first day of school on Monday, August 8th, followed by Back to School Night on Thursday, August 11th 6:00-7:30 pm.
 
As a reminder, George Kelly School remains a closed campus, although for the first day of school only, parents will be able to enter campus with their children until the start of the school day at 8:20 am.  The remainder of the year, gates will be opened to students only starting at 8:00 am. Parents who are visiting campus will need to check in to the office. On Monday, August 15th 1:00-1:45pm, parents are invited to the library to join Dr. Wilson and Ms. Petty for treats! Parents feel free to stop by, have a bite and say Hi!!  This is also an opportunity for us to answer any questions or for you to learn a bit more about George Kelly School.  We look forward to seeing you there!
 
Parent involvement at George Kelly is a core piece which makes our school not only good, but GREAT!!! We are always open to having parents get involved, whether it is in the classroom, on the sports field, PTO, or from home.  For more information about volunteering, please speak to your child’s teacher or stop by the office.
 
I look forward to a great year working with you, your children and the George Kelly community!
 
Sincerely,
 
Dr. Jeanine Wilson
Principal

It is time to get back to work…and here at George Kelly School, our teachers have been working hard to prepare for their new students. Teachers have been embracing all of the new standards and curriculum in a way to reach and teach your children-best. Our focus is to continue building relationships and community on our campus and in our classrooms. In addition, our teachers will be facilitating student centered discussions and activities where the expectations and standards are set high for all students to achieve. In addition, we take campus safety seriously and will continue to make this a top priority for our students and teachers as well. Please continue to be respectful of our parking lot, surrounding streets, and driveway procedures to ensure safe drop off and pick-ups of our students…If you ever need to communicate a concern or celebrate a success story, please feel free to email me at mpetty@tusd.net or come in to see me…my door is always open…See you soon!
Ms. Petty
