We have something to say….JUST WRITE!

We have one of our most important celebratory weeks ahead:  JUST WRITE: A CELEBRATION OF OUR WRITERS K-5.    Once you enter Georgetown on Monday morning, you will see student writing everywhere — on the walls (poster size stories), lockers (8×11 student stories) and books displayed on tables.  We’re looking forward to sharing our work with you throughout the week.

We know many of you will take photos of your writers and post them for families and friends to see.  When doing so, please use the dandelions hashtag:  #justwrite so we can collect the photos into a stream for our blog!  Use this hashtag for facebook, instagram and twitter.  If you are on twitter, add the photos with @georgetownelem #justwrite which will direct it to our school twitter account.

We have many other events occurring this week listed below.  Remember to check your child’s class blog as well.

Finally, I want to extend a warm wish to all the Georgetown mothers.   For the past 100 years, Mother’s Day has been a day to recognize the special bond between mother and child.  This special bond is like no other and has such a powerful impact on the health, welfare and education of your child. I hope each of you is able to find time to reflect on your bond with your own mothers and your children….and I also hope you have a moment or two to put your feet up and relax!

Warmly, Mrs. Reagan

Just Write: Our Books Are Published!

We Have Something to Say...

Our 2nd annual and  HUGE celebration of writing called, “We have something to say…JUST WRITE!” is just four weeks away.  The event takes place during the week of May 4, with different events scheduled each day. Teachers are busy preparing student stories for publication on lockers, hallways, doors, posters, and BOOKS. We are publishing a book for each class, and these will be available through lulu.com. For each book purchased, we will receive $4.00 to put toward our writing program (supplies, author visits, and software).  In addition, you can download a book for free–an important option in these economic times.

Please be sure to visit our lulu STOREFRONT to check out our publications.
