News From the Office…

We want to send a HUGE THANK YOU to Elizabeth Schollaart for spoiling the staff for teacher appreciation week!! She did an amazing job and it is very much appreciated! Also, thank you to everyone who volunteered to bring in items to contribute throughout the week!  We are almost done with M-Step!! The kids are doing so well and we are very proud of them! Our countdown continues with 18 1/2  SCHOOL days left!! Hard to Believe!! Here are a couple of end of the year reminders.

  1. Please keep in mind we do not have a lot of extra room in the lounge freezer. Please do not drop off popsicles or other frozen treats without clearing it through your child’s teacher. Thanks for your help with this!!
  2. The calendars for next year were revised with a change for the early release in September. Here is a copy of the new calendar. 2019-2020 Revised Student Calendar


Just an end of the year reminder about medication. If your child has any meds at school (prescription or over the counter) , they must be picked up by the last day of school. Anything left after the last day will be disposed of by the health department. Thank you!!

Library News…

It is that time of year again when we are going to celebrate all of our Georgetown Millionaires!!  If you are one of those students that is tracking and counting your words to become a Million Word Reader,  it is time to turn in your sheets of books and word totals!  Remember, if you have taken any Reading Counts quizzes the computer keeps track of those words so no need to write those down.  Turn in your Word Count sheets by Friday, May 24 to Mrs. VandenBerg in the Library! There are links on the Blog that can help you in counting your words under Reading Counts.

Music News…

Please read the wonderful article that the Muskegon Times did on the Link Up concert and the year long program all of our fourth graders participated in!  It was indeed one of the best days ever!
