Week 27: March 6-10, 2017

We have the most amazing fourth & fifth grade classes.  They are helpful and responsible.  Three of our 4th Graders, Aaron, Caden and Ellie, (pictured above), gave up their recess time to help Mr. Rob stack copy paper in the teacher workroom.  We also have 5th graders who help with lost and found, escorting kids from Eagle’s Nest to classrooms, filling ice bags for the office, retrieving mail, putting the cones out and much more.  Thank you 5th Graders for ALL YOU DO!

A snapshot of our week ahead is below.  I also included Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of the following week to remind everyone that Parent/Teacher Conferences are just a week away.

Enjoy your weekend!

Shout Out to Mrs. Brouwer and our Artists

 

Above is a photo of artwork completed by three of our 2nd grade students: Khloe, Brenden and Chloe.  Their work along with that of other students was featured in an art magazine, Arts and Activities.  Mrs. Brouwer, our art teacher, devoted a recent blog post to this article.

I wanted to encourage you to visit her blog to read about the article and provide a shout out to Mrs. Brouwer.  We are incredibly fortunate to have a teacher at Georgetown who is National Board Certified and a writer who shares her ideas with others and promotes her student’s abilities.  Mrs. Brouwer is TOP NOTCH and our students benefit as learners of art because of her.

Take some time to visit her blog to learn about the work our students are doing in art class.  Also, I would like to encourage you to visit the District Art Show  on April 19 to view amazing pieces from Georgetown and all over the district.
