George School is pleased to announce that we are partnering with The JED Foundation to create a more comprehensive approach to mental health promotion.
The JED Foundation is a non-profit organization that equips school communities across the country with evidence-based resources to create a culture of care in which all students feel seen and supported. JED provides schools expert support, evidence-based best practices, and data-driven guidance to protect student mental health.
JED will assist George School in assessing our community’s needs, developing a customized strategic plan to build on existing strengths, and implementing tools, strategies, and techniques that lead to measurable improvements in student mental health and a more connected community.
One of our first steps with JED is conducting a student survey to assess student attitudes, awareness, and behaviors related to mental health. More information about this survey will be shared closer to the date it will be conducted.
Students from the “Communication and Public Speaking” course will lead the community in a celebration of letting their lives speak through delivery of their extemporaneous speeches.
WHEN: Friday, October 6
WHERE: Walton Auditorium during Assembly (9:35-10:15 a.m.), and *during lunch on Red Square (11:35-12:35 a.m.)

Banned Books Week takes place on October 1 – 7 this year!
This is an important week not only for libraries, but schools and readers everywhere as it celebrates every individual’s right to read, encourages us to use our voices in a respectful and productive way to speak out against censorship, and supports equitable access to information for all.
This year’s theme is “Let Freedom Read!” and MDA library staff has prepared book displays to help highlight the 13 most challenged titles from 2022, as well as titles that have been banned over the years. Stop by and take a look this week—you might be surprised to see just how many familiar titles are included!

Having a “learning difference bulletin” at George School does not automatically mean that the student will have accommodations on standardized testing. Contact Evonna to discuss how to apply for such accommodations.

Did you know that MDA Library provides access to OneSearch, a discovery system that simplifies access to our vast collection of digital and print resources? This powerful tool allows you to search for books, e-books, articles, and other materials all in one place from the library webpage.
Instead of searching through multiple databases and websites to find the resources you need for your assignments, projects, or lesson plans, you can save time and focus on what really matters: your research.
OneSearch makes it easy to filter results by type, date, subject, and more in addition to providing recommendations for related resources based on your searches. Whether you are a community member looking for research materials, teaching resources, an article blocked by a paywall, or your next great read, OneSearch will make your search more efficient.
The MDA Library team is available to provide support and training to help you get the most out of this new tool. Visit our website to explore OneSearch and incorporate it into your work, teaching, and research.
