Hello Georgetown Families!

Please read the following information from the PTC:

May 4, 2010 ~ Media Room – 7:00 p.m.

Board Members Present:  Kristi Fellows, Jamie Ham, Cindy Roerig, Krista Lawrence, Brenda Zuverink, Carrie Clark-Berry Attendees:  6

The meeting was opened by Kristi.  Staci Nieboer moved to approve the minutes from the last PTC meeting, with Angel Truman seconding.

TEACHER REPORT – MRS. BURDIS: The scores from recent testing that the 3rd through 5th graders completed have been received, and the students performed well.  It’s a very busy time of year at the school, so parents are urged to check the school blog and the teacher blogs regularly to keep up to date on all the activities coming up.  Class placement for next year is beginning, and the teachers thank all the parents who returned their child surveys to help in this process.  There’s only 3 weeks of school left!

REVIEW OF BUDGET – BRENDA ZUVERINK : The budget was reviewed, and no major changes are noted.  After a question at the last meeting about the amount of funds we keep in our account, a few other schools were contacted to see what their Treasurers’ policies are.  At this time Georgetown’s balance is lower than most but is an acceptable balance.

TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK – MICHELLE WIERINGA: A fabulous Hollywood movie themed week is underway for our wonderful Georgetown teachers.  All the teachers are enjoying being spoiled this week with some wonderful lunches, a few gifts, as well as all the amazing superstar posters that are hanging throughout the school.  Thanks to Amanda Troyer for such a wonderful job on the posters turning all our teachers into a superstar or superhero!

READING COUNTS – ANGIE ROON: The Reading Counts end-of-year party will be held on June 4 with a Blast to the Past theme.  The 2nd and 3rd graders will celebrate in the morning and 4th and 5th graders will celebrate in the afternoon.  Some volunteers are still needed to help for this event.  Please contact Angie Roon at if you are able to help out.

SPRING CARNIVAL – KRISTI FELLOWS: Our annual Spring Carnival will be held on Saturday, May 15 from 11-2.  If you didn’t pre-purchase your wristbands, you can still purchase wristbands the day of the event for $15 each.  There will be lots of fun games, food, and auctions/raffles.  A few more volunteers are needed, so contact Susie Coxen at as soon as possible if you’re able to help with this event.
