Principal's Message

Mr. K- Principal of George White

Mr. K

Welcome to George White!

We are grateful for the recognition that we have received at both the state and federal levels, as we have been designated as a National Blue Ribbon School and twice awarded California Distinguished School.  Here at George White we continue to build up the student to be successful in all areas of life. All students have the opportunity to be involved in excellent core and extra curricular learning.  Please see below all the programs that support our student learning.  Also we provide character education in which we have a counselor who teaches students the importance of "how to get along".  As 21st century learners, we strive to integrate technology for all grades to allow the student to be strong in communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking skills.  We at George White continue to develop the "whole" child and welcome ALL to be lifetime learners!


Here are a few examples of the outstanding educational opportunities at George White:

  • SMART board technology in the classrooms!
  • Science Lab featuring Mad Scientist Mr. Fogg and the Discovery Science Center, where ALL students actively participate in hands-on science experiments and activities throughout the year!
  • "Cool to be Kind" school-wide focus (including essay contests, assemblies, morning flag ceremonies, and weekly "Cool to be Kind" Knight of the Week student awards) to promote kindness and eliminate bullying!
  • Weekly Spirit Day Morning Assemblies where we recognize students, promote our "Cool to be Kind" anti-bullying message, and celebrate our school spirit.
  • Monthly "Knights of the Round Table" lunches where students sit at a "table of honor" to celebrate their successes and progress in school!
  • The annual Reading Olympics school-wide reading program where all students set reading goals and monitor their progress toward the gold medal ceremony in May!
  • School Garden!
  • Earth Day concerts and programs to encourage our students to "reduce, reuse, and recycle" to take care of our planet!
  • KICS (Kids in Community Service) and Student Council leadership opportunities for students of all ages!
  • “Come Walk in my Shoes” program where 3rd graders increase their awareness regarding disabilities and the power to overcome any obstacles!
  • 4th and 5th graders “making history” during their “Walk Through California” and “Walk Through the American Revolution” interactive assemblies!
  • 4th grade makes California history "come to life" with their annual "Fiesta Day!"
  • 5th graders attend overnight "Outdoor Science School" program in the San Bernardino Mountains to develop leadership skills and reinforce science standards!
  • 4th graders spend a night on the Pilgrim  ship at Ocean Institute and learn about RH Dana
  • The annual Reflections art program where students create brilliant and unique artwork and display their masterpieces at a Fall Reflections Event!
  • Choral and instrumental music programs (grades k-5) where all students develop their musical abilities!
  • Meet the Masters art program where all students learn about the “art masters” and create their own “works of art!”
  • The annual Jog-A-Thon event where all students strive for their “personal best” and become physically fit!
  • “State of the art” computer lab with a computer lab assistant where students create PowerPoint presentations, published writing pieces, and research projects!
  • And school-wide reading events where all students develop a love of literature, including the Jester’s Journey, Read Across America Day, and “School-wide Reading Day!”


As this is only a sample of our many programs and activities, you can see that we work tirelessly to offer an exceptional education to our students. I encourage you to visit our PTA’s website at and our Booster Club’s website at to find out more about our school, programs, events, and activities.  I also welcome your questions and you can contact me at
