Do you like scavenger hunts?

I have a Valentine’s Day weekend challenge for you! The first blogger to find all the letters of the word “valentine” will win lunch out with me! To participate in this, you simply have to follow these rules:

1. Make a list of the letters:

* V
* A
* L
* E
* N
* T
* I
* N = Megan’s Blog
* E = John’s Blog

2. Go to each of the student blogs and hunt for the letters. (These are found on the Blogpals main site.)

3. When you find a letter, write the student blog name next to each letter. (See the examples I put above next to N and E. These are just examples!)

4. You must post a comment to the school blog.

5. The first person to find all the letters and make a comment, WINS!

AND…the letters do not need to match the letters above.

There are two e’s and two n’s. They must be from different student blogs!

Good Luck…Have Fun…and happy Valentine’s Day!

Blog Spotlight

This week, I would like to highlight our two reading teacher blogs.  Mrs. Bast and Mrs. Iwema work with studens in grades K-2 by providing more intensive and specialized reading instruction.  In addition, our reading teachers work closely with classroom teachers to make sure that our core reading instruction is focused on best practice.  Both teachers also work closely with our other specialists, Mrs. Sinke, Mrs. Reifschneider and Mrs. Speidel.

Mrs. Bast and Mrs. Iwema have many helpful links on their blogs for readers of ALL ABILITIES.  Their passion is reading–all levels, all genres, and promoting the joys of reading at all ages.

I encourage you to visit their blogs today!  Mrs. Reagan

Good Friday Afternoon Georgetown Parents!

NEWS FROM THE OFFICE
Attention Parents of 5th Grade Students
As of August 2002, all schools in Michigan are required to report the immunization status of all 6th grade students. This is to assure that children are adequately immunized against preventable diseases before they reach adolescence when some of these diseases become a greater threat to their health. Allison Herring, at Baldwin Street Middle School, and Anne Erickson, at Riley Street Middle School, will be checking into all current 5th grade immunization records. Letters will be mailed home for those students who do not comply with the requirements. This will be done in the next few months, as this is a huge undertaking for the amount of students within the district. If your child needs immunizations, please make work of completing these immunizations during the 5th grade school year. This would be a significant help in reducing the amount of time spent by the administrative assistants in assessing the immunization readiness for all of our incoming 6th grade students. Your help in this matter is sincerely appreciated. Please be advised that any child who has not had all of his/her immunizations will not be allowed to start 6th grade. Students who are in the process or completing the Hepatitis B series (three immunization series) will be allowed to start 6th grade, provided the next immunization is not overdue.

NEWS FROM THE PTC
Parent/Teacher conferences will be held March 2-4.  At this time they will having the Classroom Basket Raffles again this year.  These will be displayed in the hall by the library.

Please plan on attending the next PTC meeting that will be held on Thursday, February 19 at 7:00pm.

Mark your calendars…….The Mother/Son Night will be Friday, March 13 at Lost City! We will be sending home more infomation soon!

Reigning Pillow Polo Champs!

You may have thought that the 2010 Superbowl Game was a great game, but the annual Staff vs 5th Grade Students Pillow Polo Match was RIVETING! What in the world is pillow polo: It is a sport similar to field hockey, but played indoors and with giant Q-tips for sticks. It is one intense, high energy game!

The 5th grade students put forward a good challenge, defensively and offensively. They were, however, out scored by the highly skilled staff. There was a penalty in the first half when Mrs. Kok (Mrs. Becky)  was caught high sticking…so, sorry Grace!

Mrs. Burdis held the goalie position and saved her team by preventing multiple scores by the opposing teams. The staff scored four goals, with the students scoring one goal the entire game. Go Mrs. Bouwens, Mrs. Brouwer, Mrs. VanKoevering, Mrs. Burdis, Mrs. Kok, Mrs. Reagan–thanks for great team work.

Many thanks to all the students, the staff (who will be sore for days) and Mrs. VanKoevering/Mrs. Nienhuis for setting up this event!

*Final Note: This was the 3rd consecutive year the staff has beat the socks off the 5th graders. So, if you are a fourth grader this year, watch out!
