We need your DONATIONS of Money! We want all of these activities and events to continue this year. IF every child raises $25, we can fund the events above AND reach our goal for the year: TECHNOLOGY TOOLS FOR THE CLASSROOMS!
We would like to raise enough money to continue the events above and provide affordable tech learning tools to each grade level to assist with student learning. Please help us support learning through technology by donating to the school PTC.
For our walk-a-thon days, we want everyone to wear BLUE and GOLD…EAGLE Colors. Parents and grandparents are invited to join us. The more the merrier!
Walkathon ends at 11:30.
What are the prizes?
Friday, September 28: Completed donation forms and money due back to school. You do not need to send the money this week. You have until September 28.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATIONS!
All of the public schools in Michigan are operating under a budget created for the school year 2005. To make ends meet, we have reduced our operating budget by 40%.
As a school, we have are going through drawers and closets at home and school to help make ends meet.
We are desperately in need of some items for our playground and classrooms. If you can donate any of these gently used materials to us, we would be SO APPRECIATIVE!
You may have heard that our school budget is squeaky tight…just like many of your home budgets.
Even though it is 2011, we are operating on per student funding for the 2005 school year. We are doing more with less and spending more of our own money on consumable items like bandaids, hand sanitizer, pencils, pen, post it notes, and kleenex.
If you would ever care to send in consumable items like those listed above, your child’s teacher would probably do somersaults of joy!
We are also in need of a some gently used equipment that would help us immensely with instruction and play. Please go through your home or your neighbor’s (although I do endorse knocking first) and see if you find any of the following to send our way:
DVD Players: Ours are burning out. We are in need of two to help teacher project their videos to the screen or tv.
Tripod: We are need of two. We video tape lessons and review these with one another (teachers) and we also share these with students who are home sick for many days.
RECESS BALLS: Footballs, kick balls, soccer balls, basketballs. BALLS! We need balls for our playgrounds so that our children are happy!
Thank you for ANY ITEMS you can donate to help us during these tight times.

Dear Georgetown Families,
Georgetown Elementary in Hudsonville will be holding their annual Spring Carnival on Saturday, May 15, 2010. This is a favorite time for Georgetown families to join together in a day of fun and fundraising.
This year all proceeds from the carnival will be donated to the Lamers Family. This is one special family that is in dire need. Currently, the Lamers Family is financially struggling with medical expenses incurred with their son, Brodie, who has Cerebral Palsy, a paralyzing medical condition. This family needs to make accommodations to their home as well as purchase a handicap accessible van for Brodie. In addition to Brodie, Tisha and Matthew have three children to support. In today’s economy, this has been quite a challenge.
The Parent Club would appreciate a donation from ALL of our students.
We need for all students to bring in:
Baked Goods for the Carnival Cake Walk Game: K – 2nd grades
2 Litters of Pop for the Carnival Pop Toss Game: 3rd – 5th grades
All baked goods & 2 liters of Pop should be dropped off to the school office by Friday, 05/14/2010 by 4:00 PM.
If you have cares or concerns, please contact Susie Coxen 669-3662 or Stacey Alexander 914-6896.
