Pizza Lunch Stars

Lunch with Seth and his friend, Griffin.
There are many things I love about being the principal of Georgetown Elementary.   Eating lunch with the walkathon winners ranks high on my list of favorite things.  This week, I ate with the top grade level winners.
Because Seth had a field trip on Wednesday, I had two pizza lunches.  Wednesday’s lunch was with Isabelle, Patrick, Ethan, Leah and Sophie.  On Thursday, Seth invited a friend to join him –Griffin Baker.
We ate Jet’s pepperoni pizza, cinnamon sticks, drank pop and juice.    Two days of pizza with Georgetown kids = best part of being a principal!

Mrs. Quigley’s Class Rides in Style

Mrs. Quigley’s class STRETCHED out in front of the limo!

Mrs. Quigley’s class had their WINNING WALK-A-THON LIMO ride on Thursday of this past week.

It was SO much fun to watch the second graders get into the limo, explore the limo and celebrate being the winner class.

Thank you PTC for making this prize possible.  It was a very classy way to get to the Pizza Ranch!

October Has Arrived!

Mr. Jurewicz and Mr. Kooiker…pre-dunking photo!

Our fifth week of school welcomes in the month of October.  The weather will be beautiful which means another week of outdoor recess and if all goes well, outdoor PE classes.  We love it when our playground is dry and we can enjoy Michigan fall weather.

Thank you to everyone who supported our TREK for TECH walkathon this past week.  I should know the total earnings by FRIDAY of this week….along with the names of all the winners.  As soon as I have any news to share, I will broadcast it on the blog!

If you attended the HEF activities before the homecoming game on Friday, you were able to see Mr. Kooiker and Mr. Jurewicz get dunked by some amazing Georgetown kids.  I have added photos to our slideshow which runs all the time (on the right sidebar).  You’ll find photos of them dry and wet–along with a few photos of the kids who managed to send them for a swim.

The week ahead brings fire safety classes for grades kindergarten and fourth.  Firefighter Al and his officers will bring their trucks and gear to help us learn important strategies for being safe at home and at school.

We also have another Pizza Night competition—this week being Jet’s.  Order a pizza on Tuesday and remember to give your child’s class name (teacher name).  The class with the most pizza’s purchased will win a pizza lunch at school.

Here’s to a great week!

Mrs. Reagan

Splash goes Mr. Jurewicz! Good Arm, Jack Uhlig!

Week 4…Walk A Thon Time!

Throughout this week,  you will hear updates on the top earning classes for our TREK for TECH Walk-A-Thon (Wed Sept 26).  We will make an announcement at the end of each day sharing the top three classes with the final winning class announced one week from Monday.

The winning class (most money raised for our 2012 Trek for Tech Walk-A-Thon) will take a limo ride to a local pizza restaurant for lunch.

To help track the totals, we are encouraging students to enter their daily total in this walk-a-thon survey.  Enter once per day—and we will use this to estimate lead classes.  Thank you for your donations for our only MAJOR PTC fundraiser for the 2012-13 school year.

We will have two blue/gold days this week…one on Wednesday for our Walk-A-Thon and one on Friday, Homecoming Day.  This is also the day that you can come to the FUN FEST at Eagle’s Stadium to Dunk Mr. Kooiker and Mr. Jurewicz!  Be there at 4:30 pm and help raise money for the Hudsonville Education Foundation.

A snapshot of our school calendar is below.  Enjoy the remainder of your weekend.
