Spring-ish Book Fair, March 15-19

Technically March does not fall in the spring, but it is close enough that I can wish my way toward it!  We wanted you to get the date for our book fair on on your calendar and keep this in mind:

There will be a SPECIAL drawing on MARCH 4 for vouchers to use during the

Georgetown Elementary PTC Book Fair. The book fair will be held March 15-19.

There will also be a wonderful variety of books being raffled.

Continue to encourage your child to make their goal for this special drawing!

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!

The Week Ahead, 11/9/09

Thank you to all parents who attended Parent/Teacher Conferences last week.   We value all that you do to help us raise your child as a learner.    Report cards will arrive home early this week.  It is our hope that the marks and comments on the card reinforce all that was shared at conferences.

Our Book Fair was the most well attended and supported!  Carrie Clark-Berry has organized this event, twice per year, for the past three years.  This was her seven fair, and with the help of her team of volunteers, it was the best event yet.   The ultimate goal of the book fair is to help provide access to books for your home library collection.   The money earned at the book fair goes toward providing books in our library and classrooms.   Many, many thanks to the PTC volunteers who help make this event possible.

A snap shot of the events for our week ahead is below!  Check your child’s classroom calendar for more specific grade/class events.

Have a great week!  Mrs. Reagan
