It’s Here! OUR WALK A THON WEEK!

Our theme for the 2011-12 Event:

 G O    G   R   E   E  N:  

Georgetown

A School that RECYCLES 

  • Do you know that our school leads the district in lowest energy use due to the building design and our focus on LIGHTS OUT when we exit rooms?
  • Do you know that we recycle our paper?  Our PAPER GATOR (in the front parking lot near Baldwin Street) is also available to community members to encourage community paper recycling.
  • Do you know that we recycle water bottles?  Each week, a group of students collects plastic water bottles to help keep Georgetown Green.
  • Do you know that we recycle batteries?  Each month, Mr. Rob takes our bucket of batteries to a recycling station. Bring your batteries into school and put them in the bucket near the front office.

Why is the walk-a-thon donation so important?  This money helps to provide to pay for all school assemblies, Framed Art Work, Hoops in the Gym, Family Days like the Carnival, Mother/Daughter and Father/Son Events, Music materials,  Popcorn Days, Field Trips, Classroom supplies, classroom equipment, Reading Counts, Raz Kids, Book Fair, Santa’s Secret Shop, AND SO MUCH MORE!!!

We need your DONATIONS of Money!  We want all of these activities and events to continue this year.  PLEASE DONATE!

 For our walk-a-thon days, we want everyone to wear GREEN. Green clothes, green nails, green face paint, etc. We want the walk-a-thon path to be a sea of green.  So, wear as much green as possible.   

Here is the walk-a-thon GO GREEN schedule:

Wednesday, September 21: 9:45a.m. – 11:15a.m. – Morning ECSE, Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, 3rd, 4th and 5th Grade
