All of the public schools in Michigan are operating under a budget created for the school year 2005. To make ends meet, we have reduced our operating budget by 40%.
As a school, we have are going through drawers and closets at home and school to help make ends meet.
We are desperately in need of some items for our playground and classrooms. If you can donate any of these gently used materials to us, we would be SO APPRECIATIVE!
- DVD PLAYERS: FOR USE IN OUR CLASSROOMS TO PROJECT MEDIA PROJECTS TO THE PROJECTOR AND TV.
You may have heard that our school budget is squeaky tight…just like many of your home budgets.
Even though it is 2011, we are operating on per student funding for the 2005 school year. We are doing more with less and spending more of our own money on consumable items like bandaids, hand sanitizer, pencils, pen, post it notes, and kleenex.
If you would ever care to send in consumable items like those listed above, your child’s teacher would probably do somersaults of joy!
We are also in need of a some gently used equipment that would help us immensely with instruction and play. Please go through your home or your neighbor’s (although I do endorse knocking first) and see if you find any of the following to send our way:
DVD Players: Ours are burning out. We are in need of two to help teacher project their videos to the screen or tv.
Tripod: We are need of two. We video tape lessons and review these with one another (teachers) and we also share these with students who are home sick for many days.
RECESS BALLS: Footballs, kick balls, soccer balls, basketballs. BALLS! We need balls for our playgrounds so that our children are happy!
Thank you for ANY ITEMS you can donate to help us during these tight times.

It’s time to get your finest wear ready for our annual Holiday Music Program on December 9. This event is organized and arranged by Mrs. Bretz and Mrs. Whitenight, our music teachers. They have been working with our students since early October to learn music pieces for this holiday celebration.
We rent Resurrection Life Church for this event. This church is located in Grandville (52nd Ave and Ivanrest). Please enter off from 52nd Ave. After turning in the driveway, turn right at the first fork and follow the signs down to the Worship Center and enter through Door K, which has a large canopy over it.
You may arrive between 6:30 and 6:45 p.m. The lobby area of The Worship Center (DOOR K LOCATION) will have signage that identifies the room location for each grade group. DO NOT drop your child off before 6:30 pm. This is for safety and security reasons, as there will be no supervision for children before this time.
Students should be in their “meeting room” no later than 6:45 p.m. Once you enter through Door K there will be signs directing you to the drop off rooms as follows:
- Grades PK, k, 1 and 2 please meet in the CHOIR ROOM
- Grades 3, 4 and 5 please meet in the CHAPEL ROOM
Parents and students are asked to stay for the entire program. After each performance, the children will be re-seated to watch the program with their class/teacher. At the conclusion of the program, Mrs. Reagan will provide directions for child pick up.
Please note that based on rental guidelines with Resurrection Life Church, we must follow these procedures:
- *The church will be locked during the day of the performance. Doors will be open at 6:30 p.m.
- * NO FOOD OR DRINK is allowed in the church.
- *NO ONE IS ALLOWED ON STAGE. The stage is only for staff and students.
The program will be video taped for anyone who is interested in purchasing a DVD of the program. The fee for this DVD will be $15.00 and checks can be made payable to WCET TV. The order form is attached to this newsletter and MUST be turned into the office at Georgetown NO LATER than Monday, December 13.

RES LIFE Directions. Remember: ENTER OFF 52nd Ave. Follow drive to the right and go to the Worship Center, Door K.
Mrs. Woodring’s husband, Ira, serves as one our invaluable technology support life lines! He swept in to help me import portions of the holiday program DVD into i-movie. This enabled me to upload each grade to the blog for your viewing pleasure. Although this is not the same high quality as the DVD, it is yet another way that the performance can be enjoyed and shared with others.
To view these, simply click on the following links:
Just a quick note in regards to the Holilday program DVD’s. The order form deadline has been extended to this Thursday, December 17. Please make sure the order forms get to the office by Thursday! The DVD’s will be coming home after the holiday break as WCET will not be able to get them finsihed in time to get them sent home with the students on Friday. DVD FORM 2
Now that the Thanksgiving holiday is behind us, we have officially entered the holiday season! Our school will be kicking this off with our annual Holiday Music Program on December 4, 2008. This program is organized and arranged by Mrs. Bretz, our music teacher. She has been working with our students since early October to learn music pieces for this holiday celebration. We are renting Resurrection Life Church for this event. This church is located in Grandville (52nd Ave. and Ivanrest). Please enter off from 52nd Ave and enter through Door K. There is only one performance this year! Directions to the church: RES LIFE
Students can be dropped off for the performance NO EARLIER than 6:30 pm. We ask this for safety and security reasons. There will not be supervision for children prior to 6:30, so it is critical that you follow these guidelines. Once you enter through Door K, there will be signs directing you to the correct room.
Grades 1,2 and 3 will be in the Choir Room. Grades PK, K, 4 & 5 will be in the Chapel Room.
Because the church has adequate seating for everyone, the children will be able to watch the performance from reserved seating! At the end of the event, they will be dismissed to their classrooms for parent pick up.
Please note that based on rental guidelines with Resurrection Life Church, we have been asked as a school community to follow these procedures outlined below. There were some facility use problems during our program last year, and I would like to outline the expectations so that all families are aware of the rental terms:
•The program will be video taped for all families. A DVD of this program will be available to families one week following the program. The fee for this DVD is $5.00. Order form: holiday-dvd
•NO FOOD OR DRINK is allowed in the church.
We are looking forward to seeing you at the performance! If you would l like to read Mrs. Bretz’s answers to commonly asked questions, visit this link: Q & A Holiday Program
