Dear Students, Parents, and Community Members:
Welcome to George's Creek Elementary School! We are a Title I School located in Western Allegany County, Maryland serving students from pre-kindergarten to grade five. It is our mission to maximize the intellectual, personal, and social growth of all students while encouraging everyone to become life-long learners.
On Wednesday, November 4, 2020, the Allegany County Chamber of Commerce Leadership Allegany! Class of 2020 participated in the program’s annual Education Day co-hosted by the Allegany County Public Schools, Allegany College of Maryland, and Frostburg State University.
As a result of increased health metrics related to COVID-19 in Allegany County, ACPS is cancelling all in-person extra-curricular activities and athletics events and practices effective today, Thursday, November 5, 2020, beginning with afternoon activities.
As a result of the shortened school day for elementary schools during the hybrid learning model, Allegany County Public Schools, in cooperation with the City of Cumberland, have made temporary changes to the traffic patterns in front of two schools to better coincide with dismissal times.
On Wednesday, October 14, 2020, more than 100 school board members and education leaders from across the state gathered virtually for the Maryland Association of Boards of Education Annual Business Meeting and Conference.
ACPS has been awarded a grant to implement after-school tutoring that is open to all students.
Interim Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Jeff Blank, has announced several administrative staffing appointments as a result of retirements.
VISION AND MISSION
Guiding Children Everyday to Succeed
The mission of George’s Creek Elementary is to guide students to use higher level thinking and, also, to work to solve real world problems, independently and cooperatively. We will work hard to build a strong partnership between school, families and community members, in order to develop college and career ready students.
Each unique child possesses goodness, talent, strength, and beauty within, and our goal is to maximize their intellectual, personal, and social potential in a safe and nurturing environment.
Learning together for the Future!
