Dear Parents and Students,

My name is George Valentim and I am the principal of George Waters Middle School.  It is my privilege and honor to be a part of the GWMS Sharks staff and community.  Each year at GWMS we look forward to an exciting year of learning and growing with our students, as well as working with our professional staff and you, our parents and community members.  As the parent of two young children, I recognize the importance of a strong home-school connection. Parents are every child's first teacher and I believe that by working together, we can make sure your child's social, emotional, and academic needs are met.   The job of GWMS administration is to enhance and continue to support the great teachers and support staff of George Waters Middle School.  They are at the heart of providing students with a high quality education that balances a welcoming, safe environment with an innovative, engaging learning experience.

As an administrative team our passion and priority will be our kids.  We will always focus on providing a safe school with the best opportunities for our students.   I look forward to partnering with you to create a rigorous, engaging and high quality middle school experience for our students.

Thank you for this opportunity to serve our community.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to share.
