Come support George Washington's Middle School fundraiser at Fireflies on Tuesday, September 9th. This is a great opportunity to get dinner prior to Back to School Night or after the event. FireFlies is located at 1501 Mount Vernon Avenue which is walking distance from the school. Please bring the attached flier so that GWMS receives 10% of the profit. We hope to see you there!

Please join Mr. Mazur and the teaching and administrative staff for this important night. Meet in the gym for a brief introduction, then visit each of your child's classes (student ambassadors on hand to keep us from getting lost!). A copy of your child's schedule will be sent home tomorrow, but if you don't get it, an additional copy will be available in the library. One stop shopping for all PTA activities, as well: join, volunteer, pick up info on fundraisers, fill out the directory online form and much more! Stop by the alcove just outside the library and let us help you.
