First Full Week in May

The theme of this week is outdoor experiences.  Our first grade will be visiting John Ball Park Zoo, our kindergartners will be exploring the Outdoor Discovery Center and our fourth and fifth graders competing in field day events at the stadium.  Bring on the nice weather!

This week is also TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK.  Many parents are working with the PTC to sponsor special events over the next five days.  These special activities mean the world to the teachers who are devoted to their careers and care deeply for the children in our school.  Each and every day, I feel very fortunate to work with this incredible group of teachers who inspire me to work harder to meet every child’s needs.  Thank you for making this week so special them.

Have a fantastic week!

Week 31: April 23-27, 2012

This week we kick off in ORANGE and end in ORANGE.  Remember to wear orange on both days!

The color orange is a way for us to show support for Spencer Meyer and all the people we know who are recovering from cancer.

If you want to participate in one of the three other events to support Spencer Meyer’s medical expense fund drive, visit this link:  SPENCER MEYER.   We have added a May 4 Georgetown Fun Run for those kids who can’t attend the 5th/3rd Fun Run.

Check out the fun post and pictures from the Saturday Father Son Whitecaps Game.  It was a beautiful day for this event!

Have a great final week in April!

Our 30th Week of School

Wow!  Not only is it week 30 of the 2011-12 school year, we also have just 8 weeks remaining!  To help us get ready to wrap up this school year and prepare for another, be sure to respond to the Parent Survey for class lists (grades PK-4).  If you have a 5th grader, there is not need to complete this survey because your child will be heading onto Baldwin Middle School next year.  This survey will be open until May 1.

We are also preparing for our annual JUST WRITE Celebration.  This will be the week of May 14-18.  We have T-Shirts available for writers to wear on their special celebration day–and we encourage them to have their classmates sign the shirts.  Order forms for this can be found on our JUST WRITE is COMING post.

 

Of course, there are many other events coming up.  Please pay careful attention to the school calendar and your child’s class blog.  Watch for field trips, field days, celebrations of all kinds and details about the final day of school (June 8 – dismissal at 1 pm.).

Week 27: March 19-23, 2012

I hope you had a fantastic spring/summer like weekend!  I anticipate that we will see many sun kissed cheeks, foreheads, shoulders and noses on Monday morning.

The first “official” day of spring is on Tuesday, however based on the weather forecast it will feel like summer.  If this weather continues into spring break, I won’t feel too badly about hanging out in West Michigan!

As you look ahead our calendar, you will see that our wonderful 5th graders will be touring Baldwin Middle School on Wednesday.  We are getting them ready for their transition to another building.  I must admit, it’s a hard group for me to see move on.  They have been with us since we opened in 2006….and they represent our Georgetown’s first kindergarten class.  They have many exciting events ahead including instrument choices, class selections and 5th grade camp.

We have a PTC meeting on Tuesday in the Media Center.  We would love to have you join us if you are interested.  The meetings begin promptly at 6:30 and always end on time, 7:30 pm.

Have a wonderful week…enjoy the temperatures and sunshine!

Spring Ahead to Another Week!

Daylight Savings Time 2012 starts today which means your clocks should be set one hour ahead.  To help us ease into the time change, tomorrow will be ALL SCHOOL PJ DAY.  This coincides with National Napping Day — a behavior worth celebrating.

A snapshot of the school calendar can be found below.  Here’s to BOOK FAIR week and  spring like temperatures!

March has come…

March comes in like a lamb!

…in like a lamb and hopefully it will go out like a lamb rather than a lion.   The old proverb or folklore, In like a lamb, out like a lion, was used to describe a normal month of March with cold, damp and unsettled weather patterns.  By the end of the month, spring is typically approaching with  sunshine, greener grasses and early spring blossoms.

Based on the odd winter weather pattern, it will be interesting to see what March brings. What am I hoping for?  Dryer playgrounds and ample sunshine!

Many thanks to all of you who attended conferences last week.  Your support for your children and our school is an essential part of their successful learning—and allows us to do so much more as teachers.  We truly value your support.

As we head into the coming week, know that there are only 14 weeks of school remaining.  Spring break is 25 days away and once this passes by, the final few weeks fly by at the speed of light.

This week, we have PK/K Round UP on MARCH 6….along with JET’S PIZZA NIGHT.  We set our clocks ahead over the coming weekend and open next week with ALL SCHOOL PJ DAY.

A snapshot of the week is below.  Be sure to check your child’s blog for updates that are more specific.
