Each Month George Waters celebrates the success of our students with a CARE Assembly. A number of students are recognized and we try to include a student performance of some type as well. Each child at GWMS has a nique talent and we try to give them the opportunity to show them off as often as we can.
The following students were recognized for 'Getting Involved' in athletics to start the year!

We also unveiled our JAWWS groups chants. Last week during JAWSS each group created a chant for their team. Below is the Tigers compilation. Each student did a great job participating in these chats and were fabulous audience members as we all watched them together. Due to privacy concerns we are unable to post them all.
