Moving into October, Week 5

We have had absolutely amazing weather to kick off the 2013-14 school year.  The first week of October (our 5th week of school) looks to be a continuation of this pleasant weather pattern….and you won’t hear complaints from the Georgetown team!  This nice weather boosts everyone’s mood AND allows for outdoor recess (rather than indoor).

This incredible weather pattern allowed us to have one of the most beautiful days for our WALKATHON.  It was held last week Thursday, 9-26-13.  We had many parents and grandparents join us as we walked around the track.  Mrs. Impens and her team created a festive and fun event for all 660 participants.  If you have not yet turned in your WALKATHON donations, please do so tomorrow (Monday).     We are currently at $7000…and hope to earn $8000 more so that we can watch Mr. Rob, Mr. Gort, Mr. Bowen, Mr. Bialochowski and Mr. Kooiker sumo wrestle for the international sumo wrestling championship!

Our school photographer, Malachi Hollis, captured some amazing photos of the day.  These are featured in a video below.

Our week ahead is busy with fire safety lessons, Vision and Hearing screenings run byt the Ottawa County Health Department for select grades, a pizza night AND it ends with our first POPCORN DAY!  I want you to know that POPCORN FRIDAYS are very popular elevating the popcorn poppers to hero status!
