Art teachers looking for donations

ArtPrize art project help and donations! Can you help us?

We are looking for people who are willing to donate time and materials for our students’ upcoming 2020 ArtPrize entry. In 2017, Hudsonville Public Schools’ students won their category and we are going to enter again next year! If you or someone you know would be willing to donate wooden boards to our school, we need 1X4 and 2×4 (untreated) primed or unprimed boards. We also need someone to cut these boards down to 6 inch lengths. Each student at our school in grades K-5 will be creating artwork on their own board which will be joined together with our other K-12 Hudsonville Public Schools student artworks!
If you can donate boards or cut boards for us (we need 600+ pieces for our school alone) could you please email Meagan Chmura (our art teacher) at mchmura@hpseagles.net? Thanks so much!
ALSO..  we need parent permission for each student to participate in ART PRIZE 2020. Click here to fill out the permission survey.

Week 6: Sept 30-Oct 4, 2019

 

The past week was full of spirit — and we also managed to squeak through every event with no rain!  TREMENDOUS GRATITUDE to the PTC Board + Audrey Straub + Parent Volunteers for your Walkathon planning, support and work for our successful Friday event.  The photo above (credit to Jayme Santana) captures 600 students and 50 staff in full GO EAGLES! mode thanks to the SUPER FANS.

A mini-video of highlights from the SUPER FANS and WALKATHON can be found below.

The upcoming week has one very important day — STUDENT COUNT DAY on Wednesday.  It is an important day for student attendance because our school year funding is based on the number of students who attend on that date.   We would LOVE to have all of our students in school on Wednesday, October 2.

Have a wonderful weekend….and here’s to a great week ahead!

Welcome New Students!

This year we welcome 21 new students in grades 1-5.    All of them are pictured above.

To help them feel welcome, I take photos of them first….because they get to go on the COUNT ON YOU board in the main hallway (across from Library) FIRST!  By the end of February, every member (staff and students) of our school will be on the COUNT ON YOU BOARD.

The entire staff checks in with our new students regularly to make sure the adjustment to a new school and friends is going well.  It is more than a school change …. these kids are also adjusting to new houses, neighborhoods, towns, states, countries and/or schools.   The Georgetown staff understands — we welcome new friends every single year!

I met with all the new students on Tuesday to share a treat and get to know one another.  It was my favorite part of the day!
