Welcome Back: April 14-18, 2014

 

I hope your spring break was just RIGHT for you and your family.  I am excited to get back to school and hear about everyone’s time away — and get back into the routine of school.

As we look ahead to the week, notice that our 5th graders continue to prepare for their transition to Baldwin Middle School.  On Tuesday, they meet with music staff to try “on” musical instruments — a time that allows each student to get a feel for different instruments and express their interest in learning to play an instrument next year.

PTC is sponsoring a Marco’s Pizza Night mid-week and sponsoring a MOTHER/DAUGHTER Rollerskating Party this coming Saturday at Tarry Hall.

In addition to these events, be sure to check your child’s class blog for details about homework, quizzes and other events!

Talent Show Highlights

Our GOT TALENT show was a great success….and featured many talented students:  singers, drummers, pianists, comedians, magicians and more.  If you would like to view each performance, visit this link.

This year, our talented students created parodies for and of the staff.  I must tell you that these students have both our talents and our personalities SPOT ON.  You can enjoy these videos below.

Thank you to all of the parents who patiently watched endless rehearsals and calmed the performers nerves before the show!

Parent Input: 2014-15 Profile Information

classlistsIt’s that time of the year when we need you to help us prepare for next school year.

The  Georgetown teachers have already begun the important work of creating class lists for the next school year.  We thoughtfully and carefully place students according to:

  • Learning style of student compared to teaching style of teachers.
  • Academic achievement:  We strive to balance classrooms with a range of learning levels.
  • Relationships with other students:  If there are students who do not work well together due to personality conflicts and/or behavioral issues we will look at the benefit of separating these students.
  • Special needs:  Speech, reading, resource support, health related issues.
  • Behavioral/emotional characteristics and management style of each classroom teacher.
  • The personality characteristics of the student compared to that of the teacher.
  • Boy/girl ratio.

We would like to have your input regarding your child’s needs. Complete this confidential Parent Survey:  Class Profile for 2014-15.   If you have more than one child, you will need to complete this for EACH CHILD.

The survey ends on April 25.

Milo takes a break between class visits. He slept on Mrs. Reagan’s desk!

We have had a great four-day week — two of the days with sunshine and 50˚ temperatures!  Milo visited on Wednesday (treating the second graders to popsicles for their great effort with the online testing pilot) and third graders showcased their biography projects.

Throughout the week, their were talent show practices and preparations…and it paid off because the two shows were FANTASTIC!  Videos of the shows will be featured on our blog as I finish all the necessary downloading, editing and uploading.

I wish everyone safe and happy times during your spring vacation (April 4-13).   Here’s to warmer temperatures when we return to school!

Bravery = NICE WORDS

Our fifth graders have spent the year focused on creating a friendly, safe and BE NICE environment.  They have been excellent role models for their kindergarten buddies and for other students while walking about the hallways and to the busses.  To demonstrate their mindful focus on their work, they made this video showcase.  They are truly an amazing group of students.  We will miss them when they head onto their new educational career at Baldwin Middle School in the fall.
