PE Cares! Food Drive

The annual P.E. C.A.R.E.S food drive will be starting on November 4. We are asking for you to help by bringing in non-perishable food items for Love Inc. in Hudsonville.

Food items to consider are canned vegetables and fruits, pasta, rice, baked beans, black beans, kidney beans, peanut butter, tuna fish, etc. (please no ramen noodles, and please do not break apart packaged food)

The food drive will continue until Nov. 18.  We will be keeping track of how many items each class brings in.  The class with the most items brought in by NOON on Nov. 18 will win a P.E. C.A.R.E.S t-shirt and a bowling trip to Hudsonville Lane. (If allowed this year)

This is a great opportunity for our students to care for their community, to teach our kids compassion and love for others.  Thanks for sharing in this service project with us at Georgetown.

Fall Party Fun!

Hi Parents,

Our fall party was a blast! I’m not sure the kids realize that we actually accomplished some work throughout the day! We did math– (2 digit x 2 digit multiplication to solve a riddle), reading– (worked in small groups on decoding and fluency with a readers theater), and writing– (used a die/dice to select a character/setting/problem that they will continue to write).

During the party, the kids enjoyed Minute-To-Win-It games using Ghost Boogers, learning new skills with chopsticks, straws and toothpicks! As always, your kids were fun, polite, and appreciative! We missed your presence, but are thankful for the donations that you provided!
