The final week in April brings our DISTRIC T ART SHOW — a celebration of our amazing art program for our K-12 students. We will be displaying unbelievable pieces of student work at the Hudsonville City Hall, 3275 Central Ave. Georgetown Artist’s special artist reception night is Tuesday from 5:30-7:30 pm. You can also view the art pieces throughout the day any day next week. This video (created by our Mrs. Brouwer) gives you a sneak peak into the art display.
In addition to the art show, we will celebrate our STAR secretaries/administrative assistants on Wednesday. Mrs. Angie Ripley and Mrs. Doni Nurenberg are absolutely the best in the entire universe!
We would like to invite you to visit the Hudsonville Public Schools Art Show, held Monday-Thursday at Park Elementary. This an amazing display of art work created by our students, K-12. The ADVANCE featured this show in an article this past week.
Mrs. Brouwer has been showcasing pieces throughout the year on her blog. If you can’t make it to the show, please stop by her site to check out the incredibly talented students we have at Georgetown.
April is drawing to a close this week. I, personally, have decided that we have had enough April showers and it is time for May to arrive! This has to be my favorite piece of advice from a West Michigan weather forecaster: “If you are looking for a dry day in the upcoming week, your two best options will be Sunday and Friday.”
The days get busier as we wrap up this month and head into May. This week we have our district wide Art Show. Mrs. Brouwer created as great video featuring the set up of the art show and just a few of the pieces that will be honored. Many, many more can be seen when you stop by Park Elementary this coming week, 9-5. Georgetown Artists will have a special reception on Tuesday, April 26 from 5:30-7:30 pm.
If you have not yet completed your child’s profile form to help us with class placements, please do so by May 1. Information about this survey can be found here: SURVEY FOR CLASS PLACEMENTS
I want to encourage you to visit Park Elementary to take in the incredible student art work on display. The art show highlights artists from our PK-12 district program and the pieces are jaw dropping. You can visit Park any day this week from Monday – Thursday, during the day or between 8-4.
We have several artists from our school being featured. On Tuesday evening (5:30-7:30), we will hold a special reception for our Georgetown artists. To view the list of artists featured, check this web page link.
If you have not followed the wonderful, fantastic blog updates by Mrs. Brouwer--a most incredible art teacher, this needs to be on your must do list for the rainy days ahead. Mrs. Brouwer showcases the work, learning and art pieces of her young learners throughout the year on her blog.
We welcomed everyone back from spring break this week! It is wonderful to have all the children back at school….even if a few of them were longing for the sunshine they left behind (students and staff)!
I was greeting many of the students in the rotunda on Monday morning, when a pair of third grade girls, with their arms impossibly intertwined, approached me with huge smiles on their faces. “I am so glad you are back because it was so quiet last week without you here!” I said. One of them chimed up with, “Mrs. Reagan, we only have 44 days of school left.” My reply, given with a look of concern, “Don’t tell me that. I am sad when this building isn’t filled your happy faces and the sound of learning.” Both of them paused and the other answered, “Oh don’t worry, Mrs. Reagan. We’ll be back for fourth grade.” And, of course, they smiled reassuringly, turned and skipped off down the hall to their classroom.
And I was reminded again why I love my life at Georgetown so much. I can’t imagine a day without moments of authentic interaction with children each day….small and large. I am always sad to have the school year wrap up.
As we looked to the few weeks ahead, know that they will go by quickly — with many important events taking place. A snapshot of this week is below. I included a preview to the following week, noting the April 26 ART SHOW at Park Elementary. If your child has a piece in the show, our school open house is on Tuesday, April 26. Also, in addition to the dates shown below, please remember to check your child’s class blog for additional events that will be taking palce.
I hope you are enjoying the weekend….and ignoring the snow that is falling from the sky!
If your tired of the snow and winter weather, visit Mrs. Brouwer’s blog to get a sneak peak into spring. A highlight of spring for our district is the annual ART SHOW which is held at Park Elementary.
Each building contributes a collection of student art work to showcase. The works are displayed throughout the Community Room (located at Park). The show is open to visitors from April 25-28 from 5:30-7:30. Georgetown will have a special reception night for artists and their families on April 26 from 5:30-7:30 pm.
Each week, stop by Mrs. Brouwer’s blog to see the beautiful work…and get a taste of spring.
Last week, over 40 of our student artists were recognized at the district Art Show. The event, I believe, was the best ever. If you visit Mrs. Brouwer’s blog, you can see the pieces and points of celebration from the show.
Many thanks to everyone who made this possible: district art teachers, student artists (who’s work wouldn’t make this event possible), parents, administrative and board support of our fine arts program.
Our art program has also been recognized in yet another way: Mrs. Brouwer’s blog was selected as the featured blog of the week for the international Edublogger’s community. Her blog was selected because of the way in which student work is celebrated–and for the use of the blog to communicate with parents, students and the world. Announcement of this honor was posted to facebook, twitter and the Edublog community blog forum. Congratulations to Mrs. Brouwer and all of our artists!
