Keep on Learning

Keep On Learning With Reading & Mobymax

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.

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

Box Tops

COLLECT BOX TOPS

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!

Happy Summer

This has been an incredible year.  Parents, I cannot thank you enough for entrusting me with your child each day.  They have taught ME so much!  This year has had it’s ups and downs for me personally and some days were harder than others, but once I got to school and saw these faces, all of my problems went away.  They are kind, caring, and hard working students.  You have done a great job raising them and you should be so proud!

I can’t believe this year is over.  It went SO FAST!!  I hope you all have a wonderful summer – today’s weather is sure starting out on the right path!!

In true Mr. Rob fashion, he did something crazy with my chair again this year!!!

Recess by the Pond

The students have LOVED looking at frogs, snakes, turtles, ducks, and other wild life at the pond over the past month!!!  However, yesterday, they got to catch some of these animals.  You wouldn’t believe all of the excitement and commotion over this.  Here are a few animals we caught:

Biography Wax Museum

I am so proud of these students.  They did an amazing job during our wax museum today.  Each one gave their best effort in their presentations right down to their costumes.  The biography reports will be coming home over the next couple of days.  I encourage you to read it in it’s entirety with your child.  They put an enormous amount of effort into completing these reports.  Here are a few pictures from yesterday!
