During the week of May 4, we will be celebrating ALL Georgetown writers…grades PK-5. Since our opening in September 2006, we have been focused on creating a community of readers and writers. Throughout the school year, we hold mini-celebrations of our work in reading (Reading Counts sponsored by the PTC) and classroom writing celebration (small moments to honor the hard work and successes throughout the year).
Our “We have something to say, JUST WRITE!” celebration brings together all that we have learned about reading and writing as a partnership in learning. Each student will have a favorite piece of writing posted in the hallway, and in addition, we will be publishing our work online through lulu.com. Many other special events will be held, including a visit by Shirley Neitzel, the author of many books, including THE JACKET I WEAR IN THE SNOW.
To help you learn more about the author and the books she has written, we have devoted a page to her, found in the tabs at the top of our blog.
Mark your calendars for the week of May 4-8! Details will be coming!
