Week 20: January Wrap Up

Chris Crowley and his beautiful daughter, Ellise.

This Saturday evening, our school Multi-Purpose Room was transformed into a winter wonderland for the PTC sponsored Daddy/Daughter Dance.  The room and surrounding halls were filled with beautiful daughters and handsome, proud dads having fun together dancing, posing for pictures in the photo booth, playing a scavenger hunt and much more.  It was an amazing night made possible by Amy McCormick with support from the PTC board and the many parents who donated items.

All of the PTC events highlighted on the blog are planned by the PTC board and organized by parents — all volunteer time.  The funding comes from your parent donations that are made through our once a year fundraiser, the fall WALK-A-THON.  Thank you this commitment.  The memories made by families at these events are priceless.

Below have posted the agenda for week ahead at Georgetown.  I can’t believe that there are only four days left in the month!  The week ahead is quiet — fourth grade swimming is done (allowing special times to return to normal) and no field trips on the calendar for other classes.

Have a great week…and drive safely if you are out on the roads tonight and tomorrow.

Megan Assink is a STAR!

Megan, a second grader in Mrs. Greenlund’s class, is a star in our hearts–and now a star in Megan Starthe local media!  As her friend Allyson wrote, “Megan is a star because there is a movie kind of like Megan.”  That movie, Extraordinary Measures, is a true story of a family’s fight (the Crowley’s) for the development and approval of a drug to treat Pompe’s Disease which affected his two children and also affects our Megan as well.

Megan and her family have been featured by the following media services:

Fox News


And…the  Grand Rapids Press (1/16/2010). You can also view photos of Megan and her friends in the GR Press photo gallery.
