She Loves the Color Pink

Do you know who this is?  Do you need more clues?  Read on…

  • Not only does this mystery teacher love the color pink, she also loves the sound of cheering at athletic events.  Many of you have seen her at athletic events over the years….cheering louder than the rest of the crowd!
  • As a little girl, she loved pizza.
  • If she could learn to do something new, she would learn how to play the guitar.
  • And, if she would ever write an autobiography about herself, it would be title, FAMILY COMES FIRST.
Who is this mystery teacher?  Mrs. VandenBerg, our librarian.

Georgetown’s Millionaires Club

In October of this year, Mrs. VandenBerg (our librarian) launched the Georgetown Millionaires Club.  As a result of Mrs. VandenBerg’s counting skills, we can officially announce that we have 12…TWELVE….XII….MILLIONAIRES at our school!

We announced the millionaires at the opening of our JUST WRITE PERFORMANCES on Friday, May 28.  All but one was surprised that they had read over one million words each this school year.  The one student not surprised was Matthew Lawrence who was the first student in our building to reach this mammoth goal.

Each millionaire received a certificate and a MILLION WORDS T-SHIRT.  In addition, these students will be honored with their names on a plaque that will grow more and more names over time.Million Words Front

Congratulations to: Linnae, Nathan, Bryce, Aliya, Alison, Austin, Jon, Ryan, Matthew, Marisa, Cielle, Ryan.
