Reading Counts…Spring

From Angie Roon, Reading Counts Chair:

The end of this marking period is May 6.  And, as you know our Georgetown students are working hard to make their reading counts goal to be eligible to attend the last Reading Counts celebration for this school year.  Over 80 students have already made their goal and that is even before Spring Break!  Way to go!!  For those students who are still working toward your goal, there is no need to worry because there is still time to read more books and take more quizzes.  Stay tuned…a VERY FUN Reading Counts party is coming on Friday, May 15.

Keep reading Georgetown students!!

April Fools Day

April 1st  is a day in which I always hold my breath and hope that someone close to me isn’t going to seek some revenge on me for some past joke I played on them!  April Fools is the most lighthearted day of the year and celebrated in many countries.  In the UK, practical jokes must be played before noon.  Anyone who plays a joke after noon is called an Aprils’ Fool.   I wish you luck today!

A family blog?

Have you ever thought about creating a family blog?  A blog that allows each family member to make observations about family trips, experiences and life in general?  If you have, I would like to recommend that you check out LEARNING SIGNS.  This blog was created by Wesley Fryer, the author of Moving at the Speed of Creativity.  The focus of the blog is learning–learning as a family.  This blog is an excellent example of how web 2.0 tools are changing the way that we learn from one another at home and at school.

I hope you have a great week…and a very restful spring break!  Mrs. Reagan

Happy Friday Georgetown Parents!



Kindergarten round-up and screening went very well last week.  We are still going through all the registrations here in the office and we will keep you posted on everything as far as details go as soon as they become available.

Just an FYI for our parents who receive school updates via email and through the  school blog,  Comcast may be blocking this from your account.  It was brought to our attention that a few parents were not receiving the updates and they happen to subscribe through Comcast.  IF this is the case please contact your Comcast provider.

A favor to ask….when sending in lunch money for your students, if you could put the money/check in an envelope with the student’s FIRST and LAST NAME, AND THE TEACHER’S NAME this would be a huge help!  Thank you!

Please do not forget to view our calendar on the right hand side of the blog.  This will have our calendar of dates for important events through the rest of the year.

WOW!!!  The basket raffle was another huge success this year for Georgetown!  The total amount raised was $1625.00.  Thank you all for such GREAT participation!!!

A Tribute to Mrs. DeWeerd

This past Tuesday evening, Georgetown (parents, students and staff) honored our superintendent, Roxanne DeWeerd.  She is currently the Michigan Superintendent of the Year–a title she well deserves.  In addition, she is retiring in June.  To celebrate her leadership, we created this video.  Enjoy!
