BLOG BITS from the OFFICE 5/21/10

Happy Friday Georgetown Parents!

Well here it is 13 days and counting after today!  Woo-Hoo!!  : )


Just a couple of quick things from the office staff…… PLEASE make sure to send notes to school with your student/students if they will be riding bikes, walking, or be picked up from school at the end of the day. It gets really busy in the office and the teachers are busy, so therefor it is alot to keep track of with all the changes throughout the day!

FIELD TRIPS and upcoming activites……..  please make sure to read notes that come home AND check your child’s teacher’s BLOG for important information in regards to their upcoming field trips and special activities.  There are alot of things to remember this time of year and we are seeing alot of students coming unprepared for their special day!  We especially need parents to make sure they have packed lunches for students if this is required for their trip as many times the buses leave for the field trip before parents can get to school with a lunch.

Hey Parents just wanted to give you a rundown of the upcoming field trips, etc that we are aware of.  I know we give you a print out the calendar also, but just thought at a quick glance this may be of help to some of you.

GEORGETOWN CARNIVAL ……. Wow….. KUDOS to Georgetown Students!!!  We received a wonderful phone  call from Fun Services who put on the carnival to commend us on how WELL BEHAVED and POLITE all of our students were.  They said that many of their employees commented on how wonderful our students were.  The manager got so many comments from his staff that he wanted to make sure he passed on the wonderful comments to the head of our carnival committee! They said this was the best school they have ever worked at!  WOW, like we have said before….. GEORGETOWN STUDENTS ROCK!!!!
