The pandemic has caused substantial stress for all of us. People have stepped up again and again to support one another and help keep our school community safe, strong, and together. We want to take this moment before the holidays to recognize someone who has been central to all of our efforts - School Nurse Autumn Belajonas. Autumn spends each day juggling COVID19 protocols, updating families and staff, and - above all - caring for our students. She often works evenings and weekends contact tracing, calling families, and doing whatever it takes to keep our school community safe and healthy. Even with the added work and stress that comes with caring for an entire school community during a pandemic, she greets everyone with empathy, kindness and sincerity. It’s amazing how Nurse Autumn can turn tummy aches, scrapes, and worries into smiles and happy students. Please join me in sending a GIANT thank you to St. George superhero & school nurse, Autumn Belajonas.

December 21, 2021 Dear Families, Based on the number of positive COVID cases we have had over the past two weeks and the number of students who are close contacts and need to quarantine we have decided to change tomorrow’s early release to a remote school day for St. George School. Teachers will be sending work home in backpacks today. If you have any questions please reach out to your child’s teacher. If you would like meals delivered to your student tomorrow please sign up at https://foodorder.stgeorgemsu.org. You must sign up by 6am tomorrow morning to receive a meal delivery. Thank you, St. George MSU

Student-led conferences will be taking place on Thursday and Friday this week following early dismissal. We are continuing to follow COVID safety protocols, so mask-wearing remains mandatory. We also ask that people make their best attempt to arrive at the time of their scheduled conference and then exit the building in a timely fashion. This will ensure minimal traffic in the hallways and reduced need for potential CDC-mandated contact tracing. In addition, please keep the conference within the designated time-frame - 20 MINUTES - which gives staff sufficient time to clean between families. We look forward to seeing you!

In STEAM class, 7th graders learned about physics while testing how the size of rocket fins affected the altitude the rocket went. They designed their fins on Tinkercad and printed them on the 3D printer. Then we got to launch them on the soccer field. Ask a 7th grader what we found out!

Hi Saint George Community! If anyone has old leather items you’d like to get rid of, the Makerspace would gladly take them. We’d like to use the laser cutter to create new things out of the old.

Last year, the Maine DOE adopted the NWEA Map (measure of academic progress) test as its federally mandated state assessment, replacing the cumbersome MEA. For students, the NWEA test has many advantages over the MEA, most notably being that it is untimed and it adjusts its level of challenge to more precisely predict a student's actual achievement level. This Fall, in the midst of the pandemic, our school achieved more growth in a single year than ever on this nationally-normed test. Though test scores are but one small measure of perseverance and knowledge attained, we should all take time to applaud this accomplishment. For more information on our school's test results or our assessments in general, please contact Adam Bullard at 372-6312 or a.bullard@stgeorgemsu.org

Happy STEAM Day, Saint George Community! We just found out that Monday is National STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) Day, but for kids at Saint George, it’s every day. Well, at least every week. Here is a look at when Saint George students have STEAM classes: K: Mondays and Fridays K/1: Mondays and Thursdays 1: Tuesdays 2: Wednesdays 2/3: Mondays 3: Tuesdays 4M: Wednesdays 4G: Thursdays 5: Fridays 6A: Tuesdays and Wednesdays 6B: Wednesdays and Thursdays 7A: Tuesdays and Fridays 7B: Thursdays and Fridays 8th graders had the option to choose Lego Robotics on Mondays and Wednesdays this trimester. We think that’s pretty good! More to come on what we are doing in STEAM classes, but for now here are some photos from STEAM classes this fall. Enjoy! :) Ms. Palmer
