Our Staff is Growing!

baby giftI wasn’t sure how to title this post and thought through the following options:  Babies Coming Soon or Due Dates Approaching or even, Expectant Teachers. I landed on the above title because the children of our staff become a part of our Georgetown family and because of that, OUR STAFF IS GROWING!

Mrs. Reifschneider, also know as Mrs. R, is expecting her 3rd baby in early January.  Mrs. Stadt, one of our expectant motherstalented first grade teachers, is expecting her first baby in March.  And, Mrs. Kok (also known as Miss Becky) is expecting her first baby in late March, early April.  Of course, only their precious babies know when the real arrival dates will be!

We wanted to shower these expectant mothers with gifts before the holiday’s began.  On Monday, December 14 we held a luncheon to celebrate the upcoming births, spoil them with food and provide gifts of love!   As soon as we hear of the babies arrivals, we will share the news on the blog.

Meteor Shower, Anyone?

Perseid Meteor 2007After midnight tonight, the annual Perseid meteor shower will put on a show…right in your backyard!
You will need to get as far away from city lights as possible.  Experts also recommend that you bring a comfy chair with you outdoors–the show is in slow motion.

Astronomers say up “to 100 meteors per hour are expected to streak across the sky during the shower’s peak. The Perseid shower occurs every summer when the Earth’s orbit crosses the path of debris thrown off by Comet Swift-Tuttle.”   Meteor showers are dust grains left over from a comet that strike the upper atmosphere.  (Associated Press)

If you do stay up and would like to describe your experience or share photos, send me a comment on the blog and I will post your experience for all our readers!
