As you know, every spring we take our 5th graders to Camp Pinewood for a three day, 2 night camping trip. Camp Pinewood is a YMCA camp located in Twin Lakes, Michigan (near Muskegon). This camp has phenomenal staff. They truly have made a difference in the lives of many of our students over the past several years.
Nearly 5,000 children each year come to experience new things and have fun at Camp Pinewood. They deserve to have a field that allows them to experience the power of sports and team play
This field is important to the community because: Children of so many different socio-economic backgrounds come here to learn new things and to meet new people. It links many communities together.
This field is in poor condition because: The camp was forced to cut expenses this year and not complete a field renovation that began last year.
Every year the Kellogg company offers the opportunity to fix up athletic fields at 30 locations throughout the country. Camp Pinewood is one out of thousands of applicants that have the opportunity to have their athletic fields redone–and they need our help to win.
Simply go to the Kellogg’s website and vote for the camp. Search for the camp by typing in Camp Pinewood. When it comes up, click on the camp photo and then VOTE!
The week of May 4-11, the staff of Georgetown was treated like royalty by the Georgetown PTC. The week opened with an appreciation breakfast–sponsored by Wheaties! As the week progressed, we were served pizza and salad, treated to honorary chocolate bars, presented with one of a kind note paper, gifted with ELECTRIC PENCIL SHARPENERS, and served a Panera’s lunch. I even received two of my favorite treats…brownies (oh how I love brownies) and a pot of flowers that look beautiful on my patio. It was absolutely incredible! Many thanks to all of you who supported us last week and every single week of the year. We could not do all that we do for your children without your support!

We are selling field day t-shirts for 4th and 5th grade field day again this year. Students do not have to purchase on, but we are asking them to wear the correct color of t-shirt for field day. This helps with organizing all the students. So 4th grade girls must wear RED, 4th grade boys must wear WHITE, 5th grade girls must wear PINK, and 5th grade boys must wear ORANGE. All students came home with an order form last week, if you would like to order one and need a new form click on the link and you can print another one. All orders are due MAY 19!

Just wanted to give the parents of the 3rd-5th grade students an FYI that softball will be starting soon in P.E. Students can start taking their gloves to school May 14. We are hoping for nice weather!!
