Weekly Events, 3/30/09

As we head into the week before spring break, please note that there is NO SCHOOL on Friday.  Spring break for all Hudsonville Schools begins on Friday, April 3.  We will resume school on Monday, April 13.

One of our goals this week is to get as many LOST items in our LOST & FOUND back to their rightful owners.  The bins are filled with snowpants, jackets and sweatshirts.  Mr. Rob will be spreading the lost and found out on tables in the hallway, and teachers will be encouraging students to search for items.

I hope you have a great week…and a very restful spring break!  Mrs. Reagan

Just Write is Coming!

We Have Something to Say...

We are counting down to our HUGE celebration of writing called, “We have something to say…JUST WRITE!” 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).

If you would like your child to wear a JUST WRITE shirt on their grade celebration day, send this order form in before spring break begins.  TSHIRT ORDER

Please be sure to visit our lulu STOREFRONT to check out our publications. As of today, the following classrooms have published books available for purchase: Mrs. Becky, Mrs. Nederveld, Mrs. Bohl and Mrs. Flory.

A Tribute to Mrs. DeWeerd

This past Tuesday evening, Georgetown (parents, students and staff) honored our superintendent, Roxanne DeWeerd.  She is currently the Michigan Superintendent of the Year–a title she well deserves.  In addition, she is retiring in June.  To celebrate her leadership, we created this video.  Enjoy!

Let us tell you about writing…

At Georgetown, our teachers use the writing workshop approach. During this writing time students are given daily time to write, shown models of good writing, and provided with responses that help them improve their writing. Writing workshop is a valuable and favorite time of the day. Watch this movie (created by our incredible reading teacher, Mrs. Bast) to hear our students’ thoughts on writing.  WRITING
