GW traditionally hosts open house events for parents of prospective middle school students for the next year.  This year, GW will kickoff these events in December and January.  Principals, teachers and counselors will be available to answer questions.  Student ambassadors will conduct building tours.  Please help spread the word about this excellent opportunity to learn about the schools, the curriculum, after-school activities, and more.

This year's first open house at GW will be held on Friday, December 2, from 8:30-9:30 am.  The PTA will serve coffee and breakfast starting at 8 am; remarks will begin promptly at 8:30.  GW will host a second open house program on January 11, 2012, from 6-7:30 pm.

Additionally, "Walk-Through Tuesday Tours" will provide prospective families with opportunities to visit classes and tour the school campus during normal school hours.  Walk-Through Tuesday Tours will be held on January 10, February 7, and March 13, starting at 8:45 am. 

For additional information regarding GW open house events and to RSVP for Walk Through Tuesdays, contact GW Director of School Counseling, Dorothy McKenzie, at 703-706-4500.

It is important to note that these programs at GW Middle School are part of an overall coordinated effort with the Alexandria City Public Schools Middle Schools.  Francis C.
