WOO-HOO it is Christmas Break Georgetown Parents!

NEWS FROM THE OFFICE…. Wow, can you  believe it?!  It is Christmas Break already and we have two weeks off!  YIPPEE!!  Our Holiday Program was another huge success.  We had a great turnout as usual and all of the students did a great job.  It was a great night.  The school has just been a buzz with all of the holiday festivities going on around here.  The parties all went well.  So enjoy the time off, rest, relax and enjoy your kids while they are home with you and we will be ready to go when January 3 rolls around.

BEFORE SCHOOL DROP OFF ….. This is just a friendly reminder from the office staff and the morning staff who are on the playgrounds before school.  PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE….. when dropping your students off in the morning make sure they walk around the building on the sidewalk to their playground. I KNOW it is cold now in the morning, however, the students should be dressing warm enough to be out on the playground before school. In the office we keep track of the temperature and the wind chill factor every morning to make sure it is not too cold outside for the kids.  So the students should not be walking through the building in the morning before school, but going straight to their playground.  Thanks for your help and support with this matter.

ART ROOM NEWS….. Please visit the art room blog to get further information in regards to the upcoming Marco’s Pizza Night in January.  The students are decorating pizza boxes that if you order pizza that night it will be delivered/picked-up in THEIR pizza box!  How cool is that.  The Marco’s dates are January 18 and 19!    Please click here for a direct link to the art room blog   ART ROOM

elf04FOOD SERVICE NEWS…… New Notification System for Lunch Accounts – Starting on January 3, 2011,  any parent that has an email address on file with the Hudsonville Schools PowerSchool system will automatically receive an email notice when their child’s lunch account has a low balance.  The low balance amount is $2.00 for paid children and $.80 for reduced children.  Once your child’s account drops to either of these amounts, you will receive an email letting you know that you need to send in more money.  You will also get a notice when your child’s account has a zero or negative amount. These notifications will be sent out Monday through Friday.  If you do not want to receive these email notifications, you need to contact Stacey Wykoski at by Friday December 31 to have this feature removed from your child’s account.  Please include your child’s first name, last name and grade in the email. Please feel free to contact Stacey at 667-3352 or if you have any questions.

SNOW DAY PROCEDURE FOR HOT LUNCH………With snow just around the corner, the food service program would like to remind parents and students about what will happen if school is closed due to weather. If the district isclosed, the menu that was supposed to be served on the snow
day will be moved to the next school day. An example: if school is canceled on Tuesday due to weather, Tuesday’s menu will be served on Wednesday and the menu that was scheduled for Wednesday will be completely canceled.  Because of our computer lunch account system, there will be no need to issue credits and your student will still be able to order a lunch if they need one. The only exception to this policy is if school is canceled on Friday. In this case, Friday’s menu will be completely canceled and we will continue with the regular menu on Monday. Information on what menu will be served on the day you return will be available on the food service web page at Please feel free to contact the food service department at 457-2400 if you have any questions or are unsure of what the menu will be. Thank you! -Stacey L. Wykoski, Food Service Director.
