    • Donated the sound system for the MPR
    • From box tops donations we were able to repair instruments for our Music Department

  • 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,
 
Fall is well underway and the weather is getting cooler.  George Kelly’s girls’ basketball season is getting started this month with practices already in full swing. Keep a look out for the game days and come out to support our girls!
 
Many students participated in the district wide Anti-Bullying poster contest last month. There were many fantastic posters submitted supporting the “Don‘t be mean behind the screen or on the scene” message. The finalists’ posters are hung in the district office for viewing. Stop by and check them out!
 
The poster finalists are invited to the Annual Red Carpet event on November 9th from 6:00-7:00pm at Kimball High School’s Sports Complex  where the winners from each category (K-3rd, 4th-5th, 6th-8th, & 9th-12th) will be announced. Poster finalists from George Kelly in the K-3rd category are Sharon Wesley, Arianna Marquez and Jack Pytlik. For the 4th-5th category the finalists are Aiden Abarquez, Anya Aguilar and Christopher Sotelo. For the 6th-8th the finalists are  Kent Vincent Mangonon, Paa Kow and Marshel Escalera. Come out and support our students on their wonderful accomplishments.
 
I want to wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday season. Have a safe and relaxing Thanksgiving break!
 
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
