Wednesday: Final Day of BOGO BOOK FAIR

BOGO Book fairPlease help us kick off our summer reading with our first ever Summer BOGO Fair Wednesday June 15.

Come by and stock up on books so your kids can never complain that they have “nothing to do” over summer.

Purchases also help benefit our school by allowing us to buy more books for classrooms and the library.  Share with friends who have young children at other schools.  The more the merrier!

Tomorrow we are open from 9-4pm.

It’s Summer…SAVE YOUR BOX TOPS!

boxTops4EducationLast summer, we raised a record number of BOX TOPS for our school.  The BOX TOP earnings helped us to purchase our third GAGA PIT.  We would like to use the money earned this summer to SUPPORT TECHNOLOGY with many for learning apps, tablets and much more!

Every sheet is worth $5.00.  If every child from Georgetown (approx 600) fills  one sheet this summer, our school will earn $3,000.  THAT’s A LOT OF TECH MONEY!

Many thanks to Lori Simpson and all of you who are on her team of BOX TOP counters, trimmers and packers.  This is a great program that pays off because of all of YOU!

Happy SUMMER!

happy summer

We had an amazing final day…made even better when the storms broke apart just before they reached Hudsonville!  Teachers spent their mornings celebrating individual student and class accomplishments and reflecting on the growth of the past year.

As excited everyone is for the school year to close, there was an equal amount of butterflies and tears as we said goodbye for the summer months.  To be honest, I shed tears as I said goodbye to this amazing group of 5th grade students.  I become very attached to them during the 6 or 7 years of their time at Georgetown and have watched them mature socially, emotionally and academically.  They are a very special class — and I will miss them.

There are also families who are moving out of state or to new homes within our district — and these students and families will be equally missed.

Mr. Rob is our custodian and each year on the final day, he collects random items from classrooms and puts these in the rotunda.  Pictured to the right, you’ll find Mrs. Ripley, Mrs. Hoekstra and myself DABBING it up on the last day.

Wishing you all a wonderful summer — one that offers your time to build memories with your family and friends.  This won’t be the last time you hear from me.  I will be blogging about summer learning incentives, open library (Tuesdays from 10-12) and our upcoming BUY ONE GET ONE FREE BOOK FAIR (June 14 & 15).

Georgetown Millionaire’s 2016-17

millionWe have  a very successful MILLIONAIRE CLUB at our school.  Georgetown Millionaire’s read VORACIOUSLY all year long…so much reading that when they reach 1,000,000 words, they are part of the club.

We honor them with a Barnes and Noble gift card, an award certificate, a standing ovation at the Talent Show and their name also goes in the display case.

The MILLIONAIRES are listed below.  MANY MANY thanks to parents who support us each year for the WALK•A•THON.  The money raised during this one event helps to fund awards for this event and books for our library.  Also, thank you to Mrs. VandenBerg, our librarian, who tracks and counts all these words every year.

CONGRATULATIONS READERS!
