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.

Sleep and Learning Go Together

Did you know that sleep and learning go together?

“Lots of things happen during sleep,” explains Helene Emsellem, director of The Center for Sleep and Wake Disorders in Chevy Chase, Md. “We don’t just physically restore ourselves.” We also process all the information we’ve gathered during the day. “We take the information and organize it and make all the connections,” Emsellem explains. Without adequate sleep, students don’t learn as well.

This excerpt is taken from a study shared on NPR this week which highlights the need for sleep with students.  Although the focus is high school age children, we know this is true for all learners — no matter their age.

At school we notice that children who are sleep deprived not only are more distracted and miss valuable instruction, they also perform poorly on assessments.  In addition, they are more irritable which leads to problems with peers.

As you prepare your child for the new school year, make a pledge to focus on healthy sleep habits!

Summer Library…Georgetown Style!

Today was our third summer library day.  We had many families visit…and we had many teachers available to help check out books.

If you didn’t make it today, please be sure to come on July 10 from 10am to Noon.   Milo will be there (along with his principal who he is now ordering around).

Check out this cool video from today’s library time.  Somewhere in the middle of it, you will meet Griffin…an awesome reader, smart kindergartener and brave catcher of snakes!

Venus and the Sun

Aidan Waters-Umfleet and his dad went out to Grand Haven on Tuesday night to see the transit of Venus across the sun. Aidan’s telescope has a special filter on it that let him look right at the sun. We won’t see this again for another 105 years!
See that peppercorn on the egg yolk? That’s Venus.
Do you see the smaller spots?  Those are sun spots.
Thank you Dr. Umfleet and Aiden!  This is an amazing photo!

Thanks!

Summer Open Library

To help ease the summer time blues (which are hard to imagine right now), the library will be open on Tuesday’s from 10am – 12 pm.  Milo will be there…teachers will be there…and a certain principal will be there!  Please come and visit us and check out some cool books, too!

Six Writers Honored by Our Actors Guild

Thank you to everyone who visited our wonderful school to meet our incredible writers last week.  We ended our week of writing celebrations by selecting six stories (one from each grade) for our Georgetown Actors Guild.  Each group of actors performed the story for the author and the student body.  Some of the stories involved a teensy bit of improv and really creative costumes.

You can read the original pieces of writing here:  JUST WRITE SKIT Stories.  The slide show below highlights each author and the actors who performed!

Remember, if you have something to say, JUST WRITE!
