NEWS from the OFFICE
Just a friendly reminder from the office that the students have next Thursday, March 5, and Friday, March 6 off. This is considered our winter break. This also means that Friday, March 13 is a Tuesday/Thursday Pre-K/K day!!!

A few things that are extremely helpful for the office. The office is very busy at the start/end of the day. If you have a change in plans for your child could you please make sure to try and call us by 3:00pm. As the end of the day is crazy and the teachers are sometimes hard to reach as they are getting students ready for the busses and parent pick-up! What works best for all is if you send a note in with your student to give to the teacher.

Last, but not least, the playground is very muddy right now. Please keep sending the boots along. If the students want to leave the black-top they need to have boots. Please try to remind your children to be careful as it is getting to be a habit to call home for dry clothes!

Good Friday Afternoon Georgetown Parents!

NEWS FROM THE OFFICE
Attention Parents of 5th Grade Students
As of August 2002, all schools in Michigan are required to report the immunization status of all 6th grade students. This is to assure that children are adequately immunized against preventable diseases before they reach adolescence when some of these diseases become a greater threat to their health. Allison Herring, at Baldwin Street Middle School, and Anne Erickson, at Riley Street Middle School, will be checking into all current 5th grade immunization records. Letters will be mailed home for those students who do not comply with the requirements. This will be done in the next few months, as this is a huge undertaking for the amount of students within the district. If your child needs immunizations, please make work of completing these immunizations during the 5th grade school year. This would be a significant help in reducing the amount of time spent by the administrative assistants in assessing the immunization readiness for all of our incoming 6th grade students. Your help in this matter is sincerely appreciated. Please be advised that any child who has not had all of his/her immunizations will not be allowed to start 6th grade. Students who are in the process or completing the Hepatitis B series (three immunization series) will be allowed to start 6th grade, provided the next immunization is not overdue.

NEWS FROM THE PTC
Parent/Teacher conferences will be held March 2-4.  At this time they will having the Classroom Basket Raffles again this year.  These will be displayed in the hall by the library.

Please plan on attending the next PTC meeting that will be held on Thursday, February 19 at 7:00pm.
