Good Friday afternoon!


Well it was another busy day here at Georgetown!!  Our ECSE students had a very fun “Circus” day today and enjoyed their activities including having a Clown visit and getting balloons and popcorn!!  Let’s not forget too, that it was Valentine’s party day for all of the other students!!  So hold on tight, that could mean lots of chocolate and sugar!!  Woo-hoo!!

Parents DON’T FORGET that students do not have school this coming Monday, February 15! This is a records day for our staff.  Enjoy your long weekend!!

IMPORTANT PK/K INFORMATION………  District-wide adjustments have been made to the PK•K attendance schedule.   Please mark these dates on your home calendars.
