Good Friday Afternoon!


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.
