While you are attending OPEN HOUSES,  please donate $1.00 to our school POPCORN FRIDAY FUNDS. This donation allows us to provide popcorn to all of the kids in the school once a month.  The donation jar will be in the rotunda — or you can leave it with your teacher who will put it in the jar for you!

 

See you soon!

TWO WEEK Countdown!

keepcalmIt’s hard for me to remain calm when I am so excited to get the 2015-16 school year rolling!

Mr. Rob, our custodian, has been working throughout the summer with his team (Kesley and Chloe) to prepare the classrooms, hallways and grounds for Georgetown’s tenth year of operation.  (Our official 10 year anniversary is September 2016.)  We opened September 2006 and our building still looks NEW thanks to Mr. Rob, his team and the staff that treat this building with love, respect and care.  We are very proud of our district, building and community and we want everyone to feel this when they enter the grounds of Georgetown.

School begins on September 8 at 8:45 am.  Open Houses are as follows:

  • PK August 31 @ 6:30 pm
  • K September 1 @ 6:30 pm
  • Grades 1-5 September 2 @ 6:30 pm

If you would like to get a head-start on forms for school, read on.

I am looking forward to starting the year….and counting down every day!   See you soon!

Mrs. Reagan

 

BACKGROUND CHECK:  Must be completed if you attend any events at school (including parties and field trips) and if you volunteer (help in classrooms).  We encourage all parents to complete this at the beginning of the year.  The background check form is now online.

MEDICAL FORMS:  Please complete if you child needs medication at school.  Forms must be submitted with medication.  We cannot take medication without forms.  Also, parents must drop off medications and forms.  DO NOT SEND MEDICATIONS WITH CHILD.

FOOD and OTHER ALLERGIES  If your child has a food related allergy, please inform the teacher and school ASAP.  For allergies that require an EPI PEN, you must send one to school.  We keep two EPI PENS at school for reactions that are not anticipated —  a reaction that occurs with no prior history of the medical condition. We want to keep all children safe.  If your child has a serious food allergy, please inform us, provide the EPI PEN and protocol to follow if there is an emergency.

PARENT CLUB:  We need your help to support learning and family events.  Please complete this survey to show your interest.  Also, we are in need of a CHAIR for BOX TOPS.  This is an activity that can be done at home.  We have a summer incentive for BOX TOPS  meaning the collection this fall should be very efficient! If interested, contact Nancy Patrick:  nkpatrick58@gmail.com

BLOG SUBSCRIPTIONS Use this time before school begins to get to know the blogs.  While visiting, sign up for email subscriptions to the school blog, your child’s class blog and the district website.

SCHOOL SUPPLIES:  All students need gym shoes at school.  Send these with your child on the first day — or  drop them off at the open house when you visit.  For more on school supplies, visit your child’s class blog.

VACCINATIONS  If you have not submitted your child’s vaccination record, please do so before school begins.  State law now requires all students to have a vaccination record in order to begin school.  We cannot allow a child to attend school without the vaccination record on file.  If you have not turned in your child’s immunization record or waiver, you will be contacted by the end of this week by our school secretary.  If you are unsure, call your pediatrician to check and see if their child is up to date.  More about vaccinations /immunizations: Information about the vaccination rules.

TURN ON YOUR CHILD’s LEARNING BRAIN  If you child is looking for school preparation activities, consider two important options:

  • Reading 15 minutes per day.  Get that reading brain turned on.  All the learning we do at school is connected to the ability to read.  If your child is a PK or K age student, READ ALOUD.  This is a great way to build vocabulary and interest/curiosity about reading.
  • MOBYMAX  We have a school online account that permits your child to practice reading skills, math skills and more.  To find out more, visit: MOBYMAX SUMMER CHALLENGE   If you do not know your child’s login, email me  treagan@hpseagles.net

WHO is my CHILD’s TEACHER:  Teacher’s for the 2014-15 year were named on all June report cards for children who attended school at Georgetown last year.  If your child is new to Georgetown (PK, K or transfer/move-in) you should have received an email from me when you enrolled.  If you do not know who your child’s teacher is, please contact me:  treagan@hpseagles.net

It’s August!

Wondering what for the few weeks left of SUMMER?  Here are some ideas:
  1. READ …. READ…. then READ some more.  Set a goal of at least 15 minutes per day.
  2. Use MOBYMAX.COM to keep up your learning skills for math, reading, writing, science, etc.   Set a goal of at least 15 minutes per day. Visit this post to find out more about earning points to enter a drawing for an ipad mini.
  3. Collect BOX TOPS to help earn money for our school.   These box tops help us to buy books, playground equipment and many other items for our school.  If every student in our school fills out one form with box tops, we will earn $3000 for our school and possibly enough for another GAGA PIT!  Form for BOX TOP collection:  Summer Box Tops

Save Your BOX TOPS!

Box Top Lincoln

It’s July and Lincoln thought it would be a good time to remind everyone to “SAVE BOX TOPS!   A filled sheet is  worth $5.00. If every kid in the school (approx 600) filled just one sheet this summer… The school would get $3,000! That’s enough for another gaga ball pit!”

You said it well, Lincoln!  Please save your BOX TOPS.  If you need another BOX TOP ORGANIZATION FORM, download it here:  Summer Box Tops

And visit an earlier post to find out more about another summer activity:  MOBYMAX LEARNING!
