The weeks are racing by! We are looking at six weeks remaining until the end of the school year. I would like to urge you to stay up to date on classroom blogs for events and activities–there are many ahead!
Here’s to a great first week of May.
We have a four day week ahead. This is followed with Friday off–as the kick off to our spring break. The big event of this week is our annual GOT TALENT event. Students in grades 3-5 will be demonstrating their talents on April 1. As I have said in earlier posts, this is my favorite all school event of the school year. Videos of the acts will be posted for you to view if you miss the show.
Have a great week…and enjoy the mild weather that is forecasted.
The days are getting longer (Day Light Savings Time) and the weeks are getting busier! As you will see by the calendar below, many events are taking place this week. These are simply the hightlights–please check your child’s classroom blog for more event details.
I am hopeful that you can attend the March 16th PTC meeting at 7 pm. Our superintendent, Nick Ceglarek will be speaking.
Here’s to a great week ahead.
January flew by and seems like a blur to me! The month of February opens up with Ground Hogs Day, settles in with Valentine’s Day in the middle and wraps up just in time for Parent/Teacher Conferences (March 2-4).
Remember that you can search for any post by typing a single word or phrase into the “search” tab to your right. You can scroll through the posts page by page (like a newspaper) at the bottom of this page.
Here’s to a great week ahead!
FRIDAY FACTS FTO
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.
