HAPPY SUNNY FRIDAY AFTERNOON!!! : )
NEWS FROM THE OFFICE……. What a great week we have had! We had great weather for our 3rd grade field trips this week, a great Jet’s Pizza night and ended the week with Popcorn Friday!
Jet’s Pizza Night….. WOW, what a great turn out we had! The best ever for a Georgetown Pizza Night!! You families rock! We raised $210.00 for Georgetown, that is more than we raised ALL of last year together on pizza nights! The winning class for the pizza party was 1st grade, Mr. Jurewicz. They will be receiving their party soon. Thanks again for all of your help and support, every little bit truly does make a difference!
Lunch Room News…… We all know that our children like to be social with their friends and classmates at lunchtime. However, we need to encourage our children to make sure when they get into the lunchroom that they eat their lunch first and then socialize. We have lots of students that are going home hungry because they are not eating. We hope that between you the parents and the lunchroom staff that we can make sure that our kids are eating their lunches and not going throughout the afternoon hungry! Thanks for you help with this!
