We have something to say….JUST WRITE!

We have one of our most important celebratory weeks ahead:  JUST WRITE: A CELEBRATION OF OUR WRITERS K-5.    Once you enter Georgetown on Monday morning, you will see student writing everywhere — on the walls (poster size stories), lockers (8×11 student stories) and books displayed on tables.  We’re looking forward to sharing our work with you throughout the week.

We know many of you will take photos of your writers and post them for families and friends to see.  When doing so, please use the dandelions hashtag:  #justwrite so we can collect the photos into a stream for our blog!  Use this hashtag for facebook, instagram and twitter.  If you are on twitter, add the photos with @georgetownelem #justwrite which will direct it to our school twitter account.

We have many other events occurring this week listed below.  Remember to check your child’s class blog as well.

Finally, I want to extend a warm wish to all the Georgetown mothers.   For the past 100 years, Mother’s Day has been a day to recognize the special bond between mother and child.  This special bond is like no other and has such a powerful impact on the health, welfare and education of your child. I hope each of you is able to find time to reflect on your bond with your own mothers and your children….and I also hope you have a moment or two to put your feet up and relax!

Warmly, Mrs. Reagan

Week 34: May 13-17, 2013

It’s the middle of May which means teachers are racing against the clock to get through necessary learning material before the school year ends.    Your children may be talking about online math tests, MEAP prep work and year end assessments for reading, writing, science and social studies.  All of these assessments need to be completed so teachers can mark report cards for the final time this year.  At the same time, we are busy preparing for next year with new enrollments, class list work and trainings for new Common Core Curriculum and Testing.  Spring time is very, very busy!

We welcome our HOPE LIVERPOOL student teachers and end the week with one of our favorite PTC sponsored events:  POPCORN DAY!

Have a great weekend…and Happy Mother’s Day to all the fabulous mother’s out there!
