Dear George Walton Families,
The Teacher and Staff Appreciation Committee is busy planning a special week designed to show every teacher and staff member feel how much we appreciate their dedication to our children. From the smiling staff at the front door to all the talented teachers throughout each and every classroom, we are fortunate to have such outstanding people at George Walton Academy! 
During this special week, our faculty and staff will enjoy a special breakfast, snacks and luncheon – and a few surprise gifts! Please help us express our thanks to these dedicated teachers and staff members who give so much of themselves to our children and our school. Our teachers and staff are always grateful as their hard work is acknowledged and appreciated. Please review the list below and let us know how you can help us make this year’s Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week the best one ever!
