Week 2: September 8-15, 2014

Rachel and Lily
Rachel and Lily
We had a fantastic first week of school!  Four days into a new year, and we have learned all the routines of arrival, transitions in the hallway, learning expectations in the classroom,  recess, lunchroom and departure.
One of my favorite parts of the day occurs at 3:35 when our PK and kindergarteners are picked up at their classrooms by their BUS BUDDIES and escorted to their busses.  Walking side by side, chatting about their days, you see an older student with a younger headed to the busses.  The photo above is of Rachel, a 5th grader and someone who has been at Georgetown since her preschool days, with Lily, a kindergartener who is just starting her educational life at Georgetown.  As I watched the two of them walk to the bus together, I could still picture Rachel walking to the bus five years ago with her bus buddy.  Just think how choked up I will be in five years when Lily is with her bus buddy!
Our second week of school involves more routine building along with setting expectations for the BE NICE part of our school mission.  Our school mission statement is simple and to the point:  Be Nice • Work Hard • Learn Well.  While working hard and learning well are constant companions of academic settings, establishing guidelines for friendship, play and day-to-day communications at school are different from other settings.
At Georgetown, we not only want all children to welcome one another, we also want to make sure that children know how to identify when they are teased or bullied.  In addition, we want to teach children how to respond to teasing or bullying done to them or to others.
We have a common set of lessons that we teach throughout the week in grades K-5.  We call them the BE NICE • BE SAFE lessons.  Each grade modifies these to meet the development needs of their class.  Also, these lessons serve as a kick off to lessons that occur throughout the year.  At the end of the week, your child will bring home a school pledge to share with you.  Our hope is that you will go over this with your child and sign it and return it to school next week.  The BE NICE BE SAFE lessons are below.

I have also included a snapshot of our weekly events.  This week we have two JET’s PIZZA nights.  These are organized by our Parent Club.  A percentage of the JET’s PROFITS on these two nights goes back to our school, funding PTC activities (books for classrooms, student/family activities and events).  If you order a Jet’s Pizza on Tues or Wed, provide your child’s class name (teacher name).  The class that orders the most pizza’s wins a PIZZA LUNCH PARTY compliments of Jet’s.
School pictures are coming on Monday, September 15.  This comes at the beginning of the year when everyone is still getting used to busy fall events…so mark your calendars!
Here’s to a second great week!

Spring in February

It looks like we have continued mild weather — and yes, it is February not April!

We have JET’S PIZZA NIGHT on Tuesday and Popcorn Day on Friday. Both of these events are organized by our PTC — and supported by all of you, and we appreciate every activity very much.

Have a terrific week…and enjoy the sunshine while we have it!

Jet’s Pizza Night Tonight

84-459867952Hello Georgetown Parents!

How about a night off from making dinner tonight??!!  Tonight is a Jet’s Pizza night for Georgetown! This is a great way to earn money for our school.  For each order placed, Georgetown receives a percentage back.  What an easy way to help out our school and have dinner ready for you at the same time!pz01h025

DO NOT forget when placing your order to mention a teacher’s name.  The class that has the most participation will win a classroom pizza party from Jet’s!

Have a good day!

Miss Taber’s Class Does It Again!

pizza-sliceThe Jet’s top money earner for our school PTC pizza night was Miss Taber’s 1st grade classroom!  As winners of the contest, they will have a pizza lunch (compliments of JET’s PIZZA).

This is the fourth school wide competition Miss Taber’s class has won:  Marco’s Pizza Night, JET’s Pizza Night, October Scavenger Hunt and Box Top Winners.

This group of first graders (and their parents) are doing  a fabulous job supporting our PTC and showing true blue Georgetown school spirit!

72-426373804Good Afternoon Georgetown Parents!!!

Just wanted to remind all of you that TONIGHT is JET’S PIZZA NIGHT!  Take a night off from cooking and enjoy pizza, all while raising money for Georgetown.  It can’t get any easier than that!  Just think if you have conferences tonight you can just swing right on by Jet’s and pick up dinner when you are finished.

DO NOT forget to mention your student’s teacher’s name when placing your order!  The classroom that raises the most amount of money will win a classroom pizza party!!  Woo-hoo!

Let’s try and beat our last Jet’s Pizza night!  I know we can do it!!  GO GEORGETOWN!!

Have a great night!   Mrs. Nurenbergpizza-slice
