P.E. Cares!

The annual P.E. C.A.R.E.S food drive will be starting on November 6.  We are asking for your 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)
The food drive will continue until Nov. 21.  We will be keeping track of how many items each class brings in for the food drive.  The class with the most items at the end of the day on Nov. 21 will win a bowling trip to Hudsonville Lanes and a P.E. C.A.R.E.S t-shirt.
This is a great opportunity for our students to care for their community, thanks for sharing in this service project with us at Georgetown.

Football Fridays

We have had a guest in our classroom on Friday afternoons!  The high school football players were asked to give back to the community by volunteering, so Jace has been helping in our classroom for the last 45 minutes of class each Friday. As a thank you for hosting Jace, the kids in our class received free admission to the Friday, October 25th game.  The kids had a blast forming a tunnel to welcome the players onto the field at the beginning of the game!

Halloween Party

Hi Parents,

The Party Planning Crew has planned a FUN time for your kids!
Please remember that only the parents who planned this party will be able to attend. 
The Halloween Party will be this Thursday, October 31 from 2:20- 3:20.
Costumes may be put on at 2:00 right before the party, and will probably be worn home after school.
If you send in any treats to school with your child, please be mindful of our
TREE NUT/PEANUT ALLERGY in our classroom this year.
It will also be helpful for you to remind your child of allergies, as the treats will continue to come to school for the days and weeks to follow- depending on how quickly your child gets through his/her bag of goodies!

Picture Retakes- Tuesday, October 29

Picture Retakes…

If your child was not here for picture day, retake day is set for Tuesday, Oct. 29.  We have extra picture forms in the office if you need one for retakes. If you didn’t like your child’s picture when they came home and you would like them to have retakes, simply send in the picture packet with your child on the day of retakes.  Your child will bring it to the ladies taking the pictures and they will be all set. Thank you!!

A Visit From Meteorologist Laura Hartman

Hi Parents,

Our fourth graders enjoyed a visit from Meteorologist Laura Hartman from WZZM! We were introduced to the scientific tools she uses, and she explained how they work to help her forcast the weather. We found out that the sun creates our weather, forming warm fronts and cold fronts. She also talked about severe weather such as tornadoes, hurricanes, thunderstorms, and hail. The information that she shared will come in handy as we learn about Weather in an upcoming Reading Unit!
