Dear GJM Community,


It is with great excitement that we welcome 2021! Although a new year symbolizes a new beginning, it’s so important to recognize the exceptional things we have accomplished. Despite the challenges presented in 2020, our teachers, students, and parents continued to show positivity and determination. I want to thank everyone in the GJM community for their support and I wish all of you a very Happy New Year!


Every Tuesday night, we host a ‘Mystery Reader’ on the George J. Mitchell Facebook Page. The students have enjoyed read alouds from administrators, teachers, custodians, community members, and more! We are looking forward to more creative read alouds as we proceed into the 2021 year.


Sight word mastery continues to be a very important focus for our students at GJM. There is a designated list of words for each grade level and Mrs. Guinan shares at home activities in the students’ Google Classrooms each week. Sight words are an essential part of reading development and our students are committed and determined to master their words! Keep up the great work Ospreys!


We would like to welcome the following new staff members to our GJM team:

Nurse Nadine Paretzky- Nurse Assistant

Mr. Alex Henderson- First grade replacement 

Mrs. Corey Morgan- First grade replacement

Mrs. Tracy Williams-Moyer-Health- The students had World Language for the first half of the year and now they will be transitioning to Health.


We are looking forward to a great first month in the 2021 year! 




Mrs. Deniese Guinan
