Good Friday Afternoon!
NEWS FROM THE OFFICE
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.
Family Fare has just given us our “Cash for Class” dates. Please help support our school as you do your grocery shopping during these dates. The first dates that will be coming up are FEBRUARY 21-27. The second week for this event will be held from APRIL 18-24. This is a great way to help out our school without even having to go out of your way!
Just a reminder, the “Make a Memory with Mom” event is Saturday, February 6. This event is CLOSED to more registrations, so this is just a reminder to those that have already signed up. It will be in the Multi-Purpose Room from 1p-4p.
