I have something to say…


Many thanks to everyone who participated in this event!  Throughout the week, we had well over 1,000 family and friends tour the building to read our writing in books,  on lockers, and on the walls. In addition to writing tours, we hosted Shirley Neitzel, author of over 14 books for children. Our week ended with JUST WRITE SKITS–student writing performed by our Broadway bound staff! We have compiled a slide show that highlights all the activities of the past week. ENJOY…and remember this:

If you have something to say, JUST WRITE!

NOTE:  You can still purchase a copy of our  JUST WRITE story collections at our lulu storefront. You may also download a copy of for FREE.

We have something to say…


During the week of May 4, we will be celebrating ALL Georgetown writers…grades PK-5.  Since our opening in September 2006, we have been focused on creating a community of readers and writers.  Throughout the school year, we hold mini-celebrations of our work in reading (Reading Counts sponsored by the PTC) and classroom writing celebration (small moments to honor the hard work and successes throughout the year).

Our “We have something to say, JUST WRITE!” celebration brings together all that we have learned about reading and writing as a partnership in learning.  Each student will have a favorite piece of writing posted in the hallway, and in addition, we will be publishing our work online through  Many other special events will be held, including a visit by Shirley Neitzel, the author of many books, including THE JACKET I WEAR IN THE SNOW.

To help you learn more about the author and the books she has written, we have devoted a page to her, found in the tabs at the top of our blog.

Mark your calendars for the week of May 4-8!  Details will be coming!
