ART ROOM NEWS……. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE we are in need of some help for our wonderful Art teacher and the FEW volunteers she has!  Mrs. Brouwer and Heather Persch are in desperate need of volunteers to help hang art work.  When the art work is ready to be hung you as the volunteers can come any time that is convenient for you and work for as long as you are able.  If you are able to help Mrs. Brouwer and Heather Persch out with this please contact Heather at  Your time and help WILL be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!

LIBRARY NEWS….. Please read the important message from Mrs. VandenBerg in regards to the new Overdue Library Book Email Notification system.  Some of you may have received an email this week informing you of overdue Library books.  These email notifications will be going out every Monday, beginning January 24, if your child has any books that are 21 days or more  overdue. We do not charge overdue fines so please don’t be alarmed.  The students are reminded weekly during their Library time of overdue books but may forget about these by the time they reach home.  Hopefully this will help get some of those books back.  Have a great day!  Mrs. VandenBerg

5TH GRADE NEWS…… Just a date to put on your calendar.  5th grade Camp informational meeting for parents will be held at Georgetown on Thursday, May 19 at 6pm.  It will be held in the Multi-Purpose Room.  There will a chaperone meeting immediately following the parent meeting.  It will be held in the library.

PTC NEWS….. The winner of the Jet’s Pizza night was Mrs. Bohl’s Tuesday/Thursday Kindergarten class and they are getting their pizza party lunch today.  Way to go Kindergartners!!

Marco’s Pizza Night…… DECORATED PIZZA BOXES from Art class.  WOW!  KINDERGARTEN through 2ND GRADE should order on TUESDAY, JANUARY 18 and 3RD GRADE through 5TH GRADE should order on WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 19.  You may order either night but it would be most helpful if you could order on the designated night.  If you have siblings you are more than welcome to order for both on the same night.  Please try to allow extra time when ordering as this is a very busy night for Marco’s.  We hope you all enjoy this very FUN project!
