Symphony Trip: 5th Grade

The 5th grade students have a wonderful opportunity coming up to attend the Grand Rapids Symphony orchestra. The GR Symphony offers a special educational concert open only to 5th grade students. Since we have been studying orchestras and the families of instruments in class, this provides an exciting, hands-on culmination of our studies.

This year, our concert will take place on Tuesday, March 10. It will be held at Central Wesleyan in Holland at 11:10 am.  The concert is 50 minutes long.  If you would be interested in attending as a chaperone, contact your child’s teacher.  There are a few chaperone spots open.  This concert is only open to 5th grade students.  Younger siblings will be not be allowed to attend.

We look forward in sharing this musical experience with the students. Since this is a special symphony orchestra performance, we do encourage the students to dress nicely that day if possible. For more information, please check out the music blog. If you have any questions, please contact me!

Week 34: May 7-11, 2018

We have a pleasant, beautiful spring like week ahead.  It would be wonderful to have great weather for our kindergarten field trips and fourth grade M-STEP brain breaks.  Some good news about M-STEP:  All testing will be completed by Friday, May 7.  YIPPEE!

Next week is National Teacher Appreciation Week.  A wonderful group of parents will celebrate and honor the staff with special events throughout the week.  During my time in education, I have worked in several districts throughout the state, working closely with teachers, parents and office staff members.  The staff at Georgetown is exponentially SUPERIOR to every other staff I have EVER worked with.  This staff stands out because of their commitment to put children first, drive to stay up to date on best practices for instruction and devotion to their profession — working hours above and beyond as well as spending personal money on their classrooms/students every year.  There is no other profession like teaching — and the Georgetown staff is the best you can find.  I feel honored to work with them.

The latest APPLESEED district newsletter is out.   Highlights include articles about Georgetown’s first grade team and our fourth grade symphony conductors!

Check out the highlights of our week below.

Three Celebrations Worth Noting

This week has been busy for Georgetown Artists, Musicians and Food Servers.  As artists and musicians, we were able to honor our talents and learn from other artists.

Mrs. Brouwer, our incredibly talented art teacher, honored our Georgetown artists at the district art show last night.  Art pieces in the slide show below.

Our fourth grade musicians attended the annual LINK UP concert in Muskegon. The students  throughout the year for this concert — providing them with an opportunity to learn and participate.  Over 50 schools participate which means 4,600 students playing recorders with the orchestra.This was featured on WZZM and you can view it here: LINK UP CONCERT

Our third celebration was our AMAZING PTC sponsored Culver’s Night.  The staff and parent volunteers served food to cars and tables, greeting parents and students along the way.  Audrey Straub, PTC president, captured some photos of the night and these are above.  Many thanks to all who attended the Art Show, Culver’s Night and supported our music program through the years.

Week 23: FEBRUARY 18-22, 2013

I want to extend thanks to all the parents who helped to make our Valentine’s Day parties such a tremendous success.    The parents support for all of our activities help to make our school such an incredible place to be.

In addition to Valentine’s Day, we celebrated the 100th day of school.  The kindergarten and first graders honored the day with 100’s day collections and other showcases of SMARTNESS.  After all, after 100 days of school you ARE 100 days smarter.

As we look to the week ahead, we have a MARCO’s night and a fifth grade trip to the SYMPHONY.   We’re also sure to get some more snow, which will make our playground snow creatures happy.

Here’s to a great week ahead!

Happy Friday afternoon Georgetown Parents! 

NEWS FROM THE OFFICE……… Wow, was that not cool to have a snow day this week?!  I absolutely love them and hopefully we can possibly squeak out one more this year!  One day this week we had to have inside recess because of the temperatures, but we love it when the kids can go out and play.  Just as a reminder on how we determine whether it will be outside/inside recess……. we log on to Wood TV8’s website and they have a weather station right next door at Daybreak Church.  This tells us the temperature and wind chill.  The ONLY time the students stay inside is when the windchill is BELOW ZERO.  We monitor this in the morning and before every recess, so please just make sure your kids have the appropriate outdoor wear for recess.

We still seem to be having an issue with a lot of tardy students in the morning.  Please, we are asking on your part that you get your students to school on time when you are dropping them off.  If they arrive late from the bus, this is not marked as a tardy.  As a reminder the first bell rings at 8:45am and the second bell at 8:50am, which is when the students should be settled in their class.  When students are on time this makes attendance MUCH easier for the teachers AND the  office.  Thank you.
