It has been another amazing year for our PE Cares project here at Georgetown. This year we are proud to say that we collected 2,612 food items! This is AMAZING!!!

The winning class this year was Miss Burmeister’s 5th grade class with 416 items donated! WOW…. way to go! This winning class will be treated to a trip to Hudsonville Lanes to go bowling and each student will receive a PE CARES t-shirt.

The second place class was Mrs. Jurewicz’s 4th grade class with 351 items.

Great job Georgetown!

Good afternoon Georgetown parents!

I have a few things to send out from the office.  A couple are activities from Community Ed and the others are notes from the office.


The P.E. C.A.R.E.S. Food drive will be ending on Wednesday, November 18.  The food this year will be going to the Water of Life Church for their food pantry.  Thanks for all your help in this cause so far and remember to bring in your canned goods by Wednesday.  Also if you know a family that could benefit from the food drive, please call Nicole Poolman, from Water of Life Church at 667-9348.


Our wonderful volunteers from the book fair just wanted to make you aware that if your child ordered a book that was on back order they should receive these orders by the end of the week.  There was a communication error with Scholastic so the orders are coming in a little later than anticipated.  Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.


Parents please make sure you read this message.  It was brought  to our attention from the bus drivers that parents are dropping students off in the back parking lot that adjoins to the Baldwin Street Middle School.  On behalf of the bus drivers and our staff here at Georgetown we ask that any students being dropped off at school be let off in the front loop  by the main entrance to the school.  From here students may walk around the building using the sidewalks to get to their playground.  The bus drivers are especially concerned with the students’ safety as they witnessed a child almost being hit by another car in the parking lot and occasionally the students cut through the bus loop and they are concerned that a student may be hit by a car or a bus.  Thanks for helping us out with this safety issue!



Snowmobile safety is being offered through Community Ed.  This class is for students between the ages of 12 and 16 and those 11 years of age who will be 12 by March 1, 2010.  This class is being held on Saturday, December 12 from 9a to 1p.  If you have any questions you may call the Community Ed office at 669-7747 or visit the website at  There is also an attached flyer that you may print off  to register your child and has more information regarding this class.



Hudsonville Hoops is an AAU club that is offering basketball for girls in 5th through 8th grade.  Registration deadline is November 21 and must be done online at  If you have any questions regarding this you may also contact Jeff Wood at 307-5055 or email

Have a great afternoon!

Also, keep in mind that we have launched our third blog scavenger hunt. This hunt introduces you to silly things that Georgetown staff and teachers do…posts sure to put a smile on your face.

Silly Scavenger Hunt

Ever wonder what teachers do to be silly?  I have!  To help us all find out, I invited the teachers to all write posts this month about something silly they did over the summer.  You can visit their blogs to find out what it is they consider silly.  If you don’t see the post on the front section of the blog, simply type the word silly into the blog search area.

My silliness usually shows up when I am around really young children and dogs.  My dog, Cooper, brings out some of my silliest behavior, which I think he likes a lot.Silly

This summer, I decided it would be fun to teach Cooper how to be a “SURFIN’ DOG.”  Because he only weighs 12 pounds, I used a small kick board.  It was easy to teach him how to walk onto the board, but he had absolutely no intention of being pushed across the pool.  His idea of surfing was to cozy up to me and be gently rocked back and forth.  It was a silly idea…but it made for a great picture!

With snow just around the corner, the food service program
would like to remind parents and students about what will
happen if school is closed due to weather. If the district is
closed, the menu that was supposed to be served on the snow
day will be moved to the next school day. An example: if
school is canceled on Tuesday due to weather, Tuesday’s
menu will be served on Wednesday and the menu that was
scheduled for Wednesday will be completely canceled.
Because of our computer lunch account system, there will be
no need to issue credits and your student will still be able to
order a lunch if they need one. The only exception to this
policy is if school is canceled on Friday. In this case, Friday’s
menu will be completely canceled and we will continue with
the regular menu on Monday. Information on what menu will
be served on the day you return will be available on the food
service web page at Please feel free to
contact the food service department at 457-2400 if you have
any questions or are unsure of what the menu will be. Thank
you! -Stacey L. Wykoski, Food Service Director


Just a friendly reminder from the office……..  PLEASE remember to send a note in the morning to your child’s teacher if you will be picking them up at the end of the day. The office is very busy towards the end of the day and it can be very hard to contact the teachers about end of the day changes due to the students being at specials and the teachers getting ready for the buses.  Thankk you for your consideration in this matter!

Have a great day!

Kids’ Art Fair REMINDER

You have another opportunity to RSVP for our upcoming December 1st Kids Art Fair! An RSVP form and Art Fair information will be sent home with students this week.

Please note that returning your RSVP to Mrs. Brouwer does NOT mean that you must purchase your child’s framed artwork.  The RSVP just lets the Kids Art Fair people know how many frames to ship to Georgetown for the event.  So please RSVP if you plan to attend and celebrate your child’s creativity, enjoy a fun make-n-take art project, and register for some cool door prizes to be given away during the evening.

Also – Georgetown’s December Kids Art Fair does not take the place of the annual district-wide Student Art Show, which will be held as usual in April 2010.

We hope to see you at Georgetown’s Art Fair on December 1st between 4-7 PM!  Volunteers are still needed to help out – please contact Mrs. Brouwer!
