Dear GJM Community,


I cannot believe school has been in session for two full months already! I am so amazed by the hard work demonstrated by the students as the teachers are finding new ways to maximize the hybrid and virtual learning models. Please tune in to Dr. McCooley’s weekly updates sent to your e-mail each week to stay abreast of important decisions regarding school schedules. 


Tune in to our GJM Facebook page to listen to a new Mystery Reader every Tuesday night! Mrs. Guinan, Mrs. Truzzolino, Miss Simmons, and Mrs. Kouretas all had a chance to surprise the students with a chosen read aloud. Many staff and community members are all lined up to share great stories with the students! 


The focus at the George J. Mitchell School is on SIGHT WORDS! Each grade level has their own set of sight word lists and teachers have shared them with the parents. Mrs. Guinan will be hosting a ‘sight word corner’ on the school’s Facebook page to share tips and strategies for home practice. We are looking forward to engaging students in fun activities to build excitement and elevate their level of mastery!


Our Virtual Scholastic Book Fair begins on November 9th and lasts through the 20th! Be sure to check out all of the great books! The link and flyer can be found on our GJM Facebook page. 


Have a wonderful November and enjoy your Thanksgiving!


Mrs. Deniese Guinan
