Pizza Hut Reading Program

kids reading

We will be starting our Pizza Hut Reading Program on October 1st.  Calendars will be going home with each participating classroom and are to be filled out at home.  At the end of the month (or beginning of the following month)  send the filled out calendar back to school and your child will receive in its place a coupon for a FREE Pizza Hut personal pan pizza.  This reading program continues until the end of March.  Happy Reading!!

Week 4 Has Arrived!

Version 2We had PERFECT RED WHITE AND BLUE Walk•A•Thon weather on Friday.  From 9:30-11:30, our walking path was filled with students, teachers, parents, grandparents and babies in strollers…and it was a beautiful sight!  When I wasn’t taking photos, walking or talking, I would stop and take in the view of all the people who support our school.

I hope that the photos in this slideshow capture the scenes from the our wonderful day.  Thank you to Amanda Impens & the PTC for organizing the event, the parents who volunteered, the GVSU students who assisted with games (Andrea and Beca) and extended family members for all you do to help us be such a great place to learn and grow together.

A snapshot of the week ahead is below.

Walk• A •Thon is FRIDAY

 

walk-a-thon

Big Event of this week:  Wear your RED WHITE and BLUE  – Georgetown Olympics WALK•A•THON — our only PTC (Parent•Teacher •Child) Fundraiser for this year.  You can find out more about the event here.  The funds raised from this event allow us to provide many opportunities for learning and events at Georgetown.  This year, we  lost revenue when corporations eliminated cash for school programs (TARGET, MEIJER, GORDON FOODS, LABELS for EDUCATION).  As a result, we rely on your annual donations more than ever.

Your donations make a HUGE DIFFERENCE…so please consider helping us out this year.  One need that we have this year at the school wide level:  New classroom voice amplification systems.  This system broadcasts the teacher’s evenly  to all areas of the room — guaranteeing that all students hear the learning directions.  Our voice amplification system is 11 years old — lasting 4 years longer than projected.  We plan to replace a few each year ($750 for each room).   Thank you in advance for your donations! If you have any questions about the walk•a•thon and/or would like to volunteer, sign up on VOLUNTEER SPOT or  contact amandabeaimpens@gmail.com

This video, created by Kristen Floriana, highlights the many activities made possible because of your support. Click on the graphic to launch the video.

Welcome New Students

new-students-better-1

This year, Georgetown has 40 new students in grades 1-5.  Our students have moved to our school from other schools in Michigan and the greater United States.  Check out the photo above of 38 smiling faces — 2 were absent.

Sometimes when you’re new to a place, it can feel overwhelming and lonely.  I wanted to make sure that all of the students saw that they weren’t the only new faces — there were many others who were joining our school family to help make it better and stronger.

On Friday, I brought them all together for SPRINKLES donuts and an official welcome.  We took a group photo and had time to talk with peers in their own grade group.

New parents of these new students, please keep us posted on how we can help your child feel welcomed and adjusted to Georgetown.  We take our work of building community seriously…and we value your input.

This year, September 17 is on a Saturday.  Each grade will talk about the significance of the document throughout this week.

Please have your child celebrate the Constitution by wearing RED WHITE AND BLUE on Friday, September 23 — which also corresponds with our Walk•A•THON!
