WOW…….  here comes a whole lot of information from the Georgetown office.  It has been a very  BUSY 1st week back to school from holiday break!!


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)

Individual prize is a board game and $5 gift card to Barnes and Noble.

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.

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!

Hey Georgetwon Parents…

Well this is a TRUE sign that school is ever so close to coming to an end for the summer!  Communtiy Ed just dropped off the “Summer Activites” booklet for this year.  An actual book is being sent home with all the youngest and only students in the building.  There is also an “electronic” version of this attached to this post!

Please do not hesitate to sign up for these classes as they tend to fill up very quickly!


Have a great afternoon!
