The annual P.E. C.A.R.E.S food drive will be starting on November 6. We are asking for your help by bringing in non-perishable food items for Love Inc. in Hudsonville. Food items to consider are canned vegetables and fruits, pasta, rice, baked beans, black beans, kidney beans, peanut butter, tuna fish, etc.
(please no ramen noodles)
The food drive will continue until Nov. 21. We will be keeping track of how many items each class brings in for the food drive. The class with the most items at the end of the day on Nov. 21 will win a bowling trip to Hudsonville Lanes and a P.E. C.A.R.E.S t-shirt.
This is a great opportunity for our students to care for their community, thanks for sharing in this service project with us at Georgetown.

ArtPrize art project help and donations! Another call for help!
We are still looking for people who are willing to donate materials for our students’ upcoming 2020 ArtPrize entry. In 2017, Hudsonville Public Schools’ students won their category and we are going to enter again next year! If you or someone you know would be willing to donate wooden boards to our school, we need 1X4 and 2×4 (untreated) primed or unprimed boards. Each student at our school in grades K-5 will be creating artwork on their own board which will be joined together with our other K-12 Hudsonville Public Schools student artworks!
If you can donate boards (we still need about 400+ pieces for our school alone) could you please email Meagan Chmura (our art teacher) at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks so much for supporting our art program!
