BLOG BITS from the Office 1/29/10

Good Friday Afternoon!


I know I have said this before, but GEORGETOWN ELEMENTARY ROCKS!! Georgetown families showed tremendous support for our building community service project, “Takin Down Cancer-Community for a Cure.” It took four trips into the bank on Friday to deposit the coins and cash raised. Our school raised over $1,000 on Friday alone. WOW!  For the week Georgetown brought in $2,784.85 by collecting coins, cash donations and having a couple of class coin wars. If you add in the the monies acquired through t-shirt sales bought by staff and a few students we raised well over $3,000.00.  The organizers of the event are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support by our Georgetown family and are extremely appreciative.   As a teenager involved in the event said, “Your school is the BOSS!,” and ” You are my hero’s.” Well, I think that sums it up! 🙂   Thanks again for yet another successful building community service project!


Hopefully some of you have already read the blog update from yesterday, but here is the info regarding the head lice at Georgetown.

FROM THE OFFICE…. Just a reminder from the TRANSPORTATION DEPT. AND THE OFFICE, parents MAY NOT drop students off in the back of the school!!  Either in the bus loop or the back parking lot by the Middle School.  This is imperative for the safety of the students.  PLEASE drop students off in the circle drive in the front of the school. We thank you for your cooperation in this matter!  We just want to make sure every student is safe and sound!

BOX TOP WINNERS….The individual box top winners area as follows:

K/1  Wing Boy=Carson Bretz (Huizenga) / Girl=Skylar Hill (Stadt);  2/3 Wing Boy=Brendan Ham (McDonald) / Girl=Chloe Patrick (Quigley);  4/5 Wing Boy=Noah Ambrose (Jurewicz) / Girl=Linnae Conkel (Burdis)

Classroom winners are as follows:

K/1  Wing Classroom winner = Woodring;  2/3 Wing Classroom winner=Greenlund;  4/5 Wing Classroom winner=Jurewicz

Classroom winners will be rewarded  with having lunch and watching a movie.


The Third Graders would like to have an ongoing school wide pop can drive to collect money to buy books. We would then make book baggies for children at Georgetown (readers that struggle either with interest, skills or financially) to read over the summer. We would also like to donate our gently used books that we have “grown out of” to the younger grades. During this project we will be gathering data, making wish lists and in the end purchasing books so please send in your empty cans to either Miss VanArkel or Mrs. McDonald’s classroom.

5TH GRADE INFORMATION–VERY IMPORTANT NEW Immunization Requirements for 2010-2011 School Year ~ We have recently been notified by the State that beginning with the next school year, all incoming 6th graders (current 5th grade students) will have additional immunization requirements as stated below:

1.  Two doses of Varicella vaccine or have a history of having chickenpox.
2.  One dose of meningococcal vaccine.
3.  One dose of tetanus/diphtheria/acellular pertussis (Tdap) (if 5 years or more have passed since last dose of tetanus/diphtheria vaccine – DTaP, Td or DT).

If your child needs immunizations, please make work of completing these immunizations during the 5th grade school year. Doing so will be a great help to the Middle School Secretaries who need to check for immunization compliance for every 6th grade student in our district.

Please be advised, that any child who has not had all of his or her immunizations will not be allowed to start 6th grade.
