It’s a Wrap!

Throughout the building, lockers are being emptied…desks cleaned…and backpacks filled.  Students teachers, parapros, secretaries, custodians and even the principal are wrapping up the year with mixed emotions.

The end of the year is bittersweet.  We are excited for summer yet sad to end another year filled with memories with of new friends and old, saying goodbye — some for a few weeks and others longer.

If you have learned anything about our Chief Custodian, Mr. Rob, the standards for cleanliness and order at Georgetown are exceptionally high.  We do our best to help him prepare for intensive summer cleaning.  Children have been seen scrubbing gooey stick residue from surfaces on locker doors and table tops.

Mrs. Bast, our reading teacher, was spotted scrubbing the hallway floor.  One teacher took helping Mr. Rob close out the year by wrapping up his year ZAMBONI STYLE!

It’s a wrap…zamboni style!

As you prepare for summer, we want to thank you for all you have done to make this year fantastic for your children and us!  We can’t believe the year has passed by so quickly.   While you ease into summer, know that the staff at Georgetown are like busy elves.  On the surface the building is dark and quiet, but behind the scenes we are working hard to get ready for the new year.

Wishing you all the best in June, July and August.  See you soon in the late summer to start off Georgetown’s eighth year.

Can you find Georgia Lea?

Welcome to Georgetown, Georgia Lea!

Hiding somewhere in our school is a special pet for our school.  She is 10 year’s old and her owner, Rob Shryock, is now a college student at Reed College in Oregon.  He has cared for her since she was a baby…and now we are trusted with her care.

Rob gave her the name of Lea (Lee – a) and I added Georgia to help her feel at home at Georgetown.

What kind of an animal is Georgia Lea?

What does she eat?

Where is she living at Georgetown?

  • Hmmmm… will have to see if you can find her!

When you do find her, please make sure you stay calm and keep your hands to yourself—not on her home.  

Would you like a giant to come and stand over your house and pound on the windows?  This is what Georgia Lea feels like if we tap on the glass.  Please respect her habitat.

We will have special updates about Georgia Lea on our blog.  If you are interested in researching leopard geckos, observing and photographing Georgia Lea and using this information to write a blog post, please let me know.  I would love to feature guest gecko bloggers on our school blog.

Maddison Rae arrived three weeks early…but is doing so very well.  And…so are her momma and daddy.  She weighed 5 lbs 12 ozs and is 21 inches long.

As soon as we have a photo of the beautiful girl with her Daddy, we will share it with you.
