PORT: A Service Project

Lily Wressell, a fourth grader in Mrs. Huizenga’s class, is asking her fellow Georgetown students and families to join her in supporting the Pediatric Oncology Resource Team, P.O.R.T., that operates with Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital. 

P.O.R.T. provides much needed resources and hands-on support for families with a child diagnosed with cancer or life-threatening blood disorders. 

Lily will be collecting items to put into theme baskets for the P.O.R.T. Winter Night Out fundraiser in February. 

In particular she is requesting items related to kids arts and crafts such as; paints, crayons, paper, stencils, stickers, etc. 

She is also looking for gift wrap items; paper, bags, bows, ribbon, cards, etc. 

If you are interested in donating items there will be a box located in the lobby until Monday, Feb 6 that you may put them in. 

Thank you for helping Lily reach her goal of providing two baskets to help P.O.R.T.

Leah’s Summer Adventures

Those of you who followed our blog last year may remember Leah, our third grade student who was born in China and now living with her American family.  Leah taught her classmates about the traditions, games and culture of the Chinese people.

We have been amazed by how quickly Leah has learned the English language and traditions, expectations for learning and playing…and so much more in her first year here.

This has been Leah’s first ever summer with her family and  friends.   You can see from these photos that she is very happy!  Leah will be a fourth grader in Mrs. Huizenga’s classroom.

Holiday Program Performance: Grades 1 and 2

Featured below is an uploaded version of our first and second grade classes performing during our fourth annual Holiday Program on December 17, 2009. It is not the same high quality of the DVD which many of your have ordered, but it is still a nice way to share the incredible work done by our students and our music teachers, Mrs. Bretz and Mrs. Whitenight.   Enjoy watching children from these classrooms perform:

I hope you enjoy this video!
