News From the Office…

We are looking forward to the next big stretch of school before it is Spring Break. We have about 7 weeks until Spring Break which starts on April 2. I cannot believe how fast the year is going!  Parent teacher conferences will be going on Mar 8 and 10, which will be virtual again, as well as the book fair that same week!  The yearbooks went home last week. We do have a few extra in the office if you forgot to order one. The cost is $10. You can also call geskus photography and order through them.

Stay warm, be safe, and have a nice weekend!

Next Early Release…

Our next early release is on Mar 5. We will be dismissing at 12:15 on Mar 5. If your child is a car rider, please be at school between 12:10 and 12:15 for pick up.  Food Service will be offering a sack lunch on early release days. Children can order a lunch with their teacher in the morning and will have them to take to their destination.

Music Virtual Performance

Hello and Happy Friday Georgetown Families!

It’s hard to believe that we are officially half way through the school year with today marking the end point of the first semester.  Time does fly and in 140 days we’ll be wishing the students well for the summer…it will be here before we know it!

Before we think forward to summer though, I’d like to think back to the holidays.  This year, we were unable to host our in-person holiday concert, but we wanted to still provide an opportunity for our students to “perform” for their families, friends, and loved ones.  Mrs. Bretz, our music teacher has worked incessantly, along with our students, to make the best of this unusual year.  Please see Mrs. Bretz’s message below and follow the link to watch this years’ GES Holiday Program!

Greetings from the Music room! 

Although we were disappointed to not be able to perform together for our traditional large-scale holiday program this year, we have worked hard in music class to create a “virtual” performance to share with you!  With limitations on singing, we focused on instrumental versions of favorite holiday songs instead!  This has allowed us an opportunity to spend time exploring steady beat, rhythms, notes on a staff and new instruments. 

All grades (K-5th) focused on a different instrument and have recorded a video demonstrating our musical abilities and growth this year.  I’m so proud of how hard all of our students have worked!  It is truly a blessing to be able to teach them each and every day.  

Enjoy this “virtual performance” and a peek into the musical lives of your children.  

Sincerely, 

Mrs. Bretz
