A Busy Week Ahead!

I hope you had a great snow day!   Thank you to everyone who sent photos to share on the blog.  The day was as an unexpected surprise for many—and the teachers considered an bonus day for finishing up report cards and preparations for conferences.

Throughout this week, we will be hosting our PTC COIN WAR.  This is our final and very important fundraiser for PTC.  The money collected will build the PTC budget for critical school events that are focused on supporting family activities and learning.  Please send in your silver coins so that the PTC can continue all the good that it does for our school community!

Parent Teacher Conferences will be held on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. I will have the esteemed role of TIME KEEPER which means you will hear my voice every 15 over the intercom announcing the end of each conference period.

We also have LEAP DAY on February 29...a special day that appears just once every four years.  If you know anyone who has a birthday on this special day, make sure you remember them with a special birthday wish!

On the first day of March,  we will have our DRESS LIKE A PE TEACHER theme day. Every staff member and student is encouraged to wear PE apparel and dress as a PE teacher.  It’s our way of celebrating Mrs. Neinhuis and Mrs. VanKoevering…two incredible PE teachers who make a big impact on our health and wellness at Georgetown.

Remember:  NO SCHOOL ON FRIDAY.  Teachers will be working hard on professional development activities….learning strategies for improving instruction for all learners.

Have a great weekend!

Week 23: February 20-24, 2012

I hope your winter (slash that) mini-SPRING break was fantastic!  Teachers were very busy on Thursday working on assessments and report cards.  I am hopeful that everyone was able to use the extra day or two for rest and fun–which is well deserved all around.

I must admit, as far as the weather is concerned, I have crossed over from mourning the lack of snow to hoping we can push this weather through March and straight into spring.

This is our last full week of February — welcoming March in next week. The schedule below is a snapshot view.  Be sure to check out your child’s class blog for additional details.

This week includes three days of school and two days off for students.  Teachers will be at school on Thursday working on grading assessments and report cards.

Squeezed into this short week in Valentine’s Day (February 14, of course) and a Marco’s Pizza Night on Wednesday, February 15.

Please visit your child’s class blog to find out specifics on Valentine’s Day parties.

Have a great weekend….and stay warm!  Winter has returned once again!

Spring in February

It looks like we have continued mild weather — and yes, it is February not April!

We have JET’S PIZZA NIGHT on Tuesday and Popcorn Day on Friday. Both of these events are organized by our PTC — and supported by all of you, and we appreciate every activity very much.

Have a terrific week…and enjoy the sunshine while we have it!

January Wraps Up…

and February rolls in!  The week opens up with the final three days of January and ends on Ground Hogs Day.

 

It’s ironic that Ground Hog’s Day serves as our marker for counting down to spring when we have had so many spring days in January!  Even more ironic that as I type this, several inches of snow are accumulating in my yard.  What a strange month this has been for weather.

A snapshot of our week ahead is below.  I hope you have a great weekend….and here’s to a great month of February.

Snowy Weekend

View of the Hemlocks

I hope you have been able to enjoy the beauty of the lake effect snow fall.  My home is nestled under giant beech trees and surrounded by hemlocks.  No matter which window I look out, I feel like I am in a snow globe.

This should make for an easier week to dress your children for outdoor wear at school.  The playground calls for boots, snowpants, glove/mitts, hats and scarves—and of course a winter coat.

Each time you are in the building, be sure to walk by the LOST (and we hope FOUND) tables outside the library.  There are a few items that you may recognize that your children haven’t missed yet.  I am always most entertained by the one lone boot or shoe that ends up there!  Surely that one boot or shoe in the locker must look lonely.

The schedule for this week is posted below.

Week 17: Will it feel like March or January?

Ahhhh….Michigan weather is so unpredictable and confounding.  During our first week of January, we had three days that were sunny and warm enough to be mistaken for early March.

I am not sure what the weather will bring for our second week and I wish you great luck in dressing your children for school each morning!   I remember the days of convincing my children that they needed to wear boots, mittens and hats as the snow was rapidly disappearing from the grassy areas.

My best advice is this:  Even thought the snow is melting, the playground is wet and the grassy areas muddy so wear those boots.  The wind whips through our playground areas, so mittens and a hat are must haves for outdoor wear at Georgetown.

It won’t be long and a good ol’ fashioned winter storm will arrive to remind us how important our winter accessories are in our lives.

A snapshot of the week ahead is below.  Remember, JET’S PIZZA NIGHT is TUESDAY!  I can’t wait to find out which class will win pizza for lunch from Jet’s.  Many thanks to the PTC and Mr. Cecchini for making this possible.

All Things Holiday

The snapshot of our school calendar below reflects the holiday theme that will be heard, seen and felt throughout the building this week!

Our PTC will be hosting one of my all time favorite events:  The Holiday Shop.  Your children will be able to purchase items from the shop to gift to family members for the holidays.  This event will be held in the Media Center M-F and also next week Monday, Dec 6.

All grades will be rehearsing throughout the week for our all school holiday performance on December 1 at Fair Haven Ministries.   The details for this event can be found in a separate post titled 2011 Holiday Program.  We will also be emailing the details to families and sending home paper copies of event details.

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving with your family and friends.  Here’s to a fantastic December at Georgetown.

Mrs. Reagan
