Happy Friday Georgetown Parents!

NEWS FROM THE OFFICE……  Well the Countdown to Spring Break is 14 school days.  Next week we will be into single digits!!  Yippee!  As soon as we have the totals from the coin wars we will be sure to let all of you know.  From what I have heard the PTC was very happy though!!  Good job Georgetown families  : )  We also held Kindergarten Round-up this week and that went very well.  Looks as though we will have another full house as far as Kindergarten goes!!  If anyone still needs to turn in their PK/K Registrations please do so as soon as you can.  Remember, however, we MUST have a copy or the ORIGINAL Birth Certificate to accept the registration.

SPRING BOOK FAIR……… URGENT……HELP NEEDED!!!   The Book Fair Luau is coming to our school March 12-16 and we have an URGENT need for volunteers to make this event a success. Please visit the link below or contact Cindy Roerig at or 450-5772.

5TH GRADE NEWS………  Immunization Requirements for 2012-2013 School Year ~ All incoming 6th graders (current 5th grade students) will have the immunization requirements as stated below:

1.  Two doses of Varicella vaccine or have a history of having chickenpox.
2.  One dose of meningococcal vaccine. (Students must be 11 yrs old before getting this dose)
3.  One dose of tetanus/diphtheria/acellular pertussis (Tdap) (if 5 years or more have passed since last dose of tetanus/diphtheria vaccine – DTaP, Td or DT).

If your child needs immunizations, please make work of completing these immunizations during the 5th grade school year. Doing so will be a great help to the Middle School Secretaries who need to check for immunization compliance for every 6th grade student in our district.

Please be advised that any child who has not had all of his/her immunizations will not be allowed to start 6th grade.

UPCOMING IMPORTANT DATES FOR 5TH GRADERS……..  March 22 ~ 5th graders will be visiting the Middle School that they will be attending next fall.    April 10 ~ Instrument Fittings at Georgetown Elementary.  (This helps the students determine if and what instrument they might like to play in Middle School Band.)  April 18 ~ Parent Informational Meeting for parents of 5th graders.  This will be held at Baldwin Middle School in the Cafeteria at 7:00pm.
