NEWS FROM THE OFFICE………. Yippee, the MEAP testing is finished! I am not sure who is more excited….. the principle, the teachers, or the students?!

Enjoy your weekend.

DISTRICT HOLIDAY PROGRAMS………. Attached is a letter from our Curriculum Director regarding the schedule for all HPS holiday programs. Georgetown’s holiday program will be held on December 1 at Fair Haven Church on the corner of Baldwin and 28nd Streets. We will hold two back to back performances, one for PK-2 and Grades 3-5. In the past, we rented Resurrection Life for this performance. This facility size permitted us to hold one program. However, the rental fee is cost prohibitive for our 2011-12 budget. We look forward to showcasing our students vocal talents on December 1. In November, details will be provided about the exact start times for the program.
