Pizza Hut Book It Program!

September28

Our class is participating in the BOOK IT! Program to encourage reading at home.  Your child will receive a calendar October through March at the beginning of each month.  Each time your child reads at home he/she should mark it on their calendar.  At the end of each month your child should bring his/her calendar back to school and receive a coupon for a FREE personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut.

Whoo Hoo! Your child has to read anyway! What a cool reward! Thanks, Mrs. V.!

Our First Two Weeks!

September8

Hi Parents,

 In addition to continuing the Getting to Know Each Other process, here is what we’ve been up to in the first two weeks of 4th grade!
Our first unit of study in Reading lays the groundwork for good reading habits. Students are taught how to set reading goals, choose a Just Right book, read actively, and build reading stamina.
As we dig into writing Personal Narratives, we are learning to generate ideas of what to write by thinking about Special People, Special Places, and Strong Emotions. We also are learning to add sensory details to help the reader experience the story.
We are tackling numbers up to 1 Million in math this first unit! Students are learning how to model and read and write numbers in standard form (24), word form (twenty-four), and expanded form (20 + 4). We are also rounding numbers!
The first unit of Social Studies is all about Economics. We are first revisiting what was learned in 3rd grade by discussing Michigan’s State Economy before taking our discussions to the U.S. level.
As you can see, we have been working hard!
Please don’t hesitate to ask questions!
Enjoy your week!

COLLECT BOX TOPS & COKE CAPS

June9

 

Did you know that every BOXTOP and every COKE CAP collected earns money for our school?   This summer we would like you to work hard to collect both. The money we earn will go toward a basketball hoop on our K/1 playground!

 

BOXTOPS:  Every completed BOXTOP sheet is worth $5.00.  If every child from Georgetown (approx 570) fills  one sheet this summer, our school will earn $2,750.   Many thanks to Lori Simpson and all of you who are on her team of BOX TOP counters, trimmers and packers.  This is a great program that pays off because of all of YOU! Download your form here:  Summer Box Tops

 

COKE CAPS:  Super easy. Save the caps and go online to enter collection!  COKE WEBSITE  (https://us.coca-cola.com/give/)   Select Georgetown Elementary and enter the code on the cap.   Now you can recycle the cap. No need to send it to school.

Dear Parents,

 

Studies have shown that students can lose up to 50% of learning during the summer vacation.   Georgetown is challenging you and your child to “KEEP ON LEARNING” this summer to prevent summer slide.  There are two ways to record your learning time:

 

Our goals for students over the summer are below. Students who reach or exceed goals will be entered in a drawing for an Amazon Gift Card (1 per grade). This is for their grade next year.

 

Reading Minutes Mobymax
  • First Grade: 100 minutes
  • Second Grade: 200 minutes
  • Third Grade: 300 minutes
  • Fourth Grade: 400 minutes
  • Fifth Grade:  400 minutes
  • First Grade: 100 pts
  • Second Grade: 200 pts
  • Third Grade: 300 pts
  • Fourth Grade: 400 pts
  • Fifth Grade:  500 pts

 

    • Reading:  Log into  this form  to record the number of minutes you read.  You can record each day or enter the total for each week.

 

  • Login will be username@hpsstudents.net

 

 

If your child is new to the school and you would like login information, email Mrs. Reagan.  treagan@hpseagles.net

 

Have a great summer…and keep on learning with READING and MOBYMAX!
