Tennis Shoes!

4ibKadpBT

We know as the weather gets warmer that kids will start to wear tennis shoes, flip flops and sandals outside. Dirty shoes bring in lots of dirt and make the floor slippery. Please have a pair of clean tennis shoes in your locker, so you are prepared for P.E.
Thanks for your help!

Jump Rope for Heart

We have completed our Jump Rope for Heart for 2014. We have some pictures to show you from the event and also a picture of Kiara (who jumped 140 times in one minute) and Leah (who jumped 138 times in one minute). They are both in Mr. Gorts class. Way to go girls!! We had lots of fun and our 5th grade students from Mrs. Burdis’ class came into the gym to help the K classes with all their jumping stations. Our wonderful Georgetown Families raised $3604.66 for the American Heart Association. We can not thank you enough for supporting this important cause!

JUMP ROPE FOR HEART

Coming soon…our annual Jump Rope for Heart Event. January 22-24 we will be sending home the Jump Rope for Heart collection envelopes. This is optional, but it is for a very good cause! All money collected will go to the American Heart Association. The money our school raises helps fund potentially lifesaving research for heart and blood vessel diseases. It also supports the development of educational materials that teach the importance of a healthy heart and staying physically fit. In short, our school is joining in the fight against our nation’s No. 1 killer- cardiovascular diseases and stroke.

All students will be participating in our JRFH event during PE class even if they choose not to collect donations. The dates of the event are Feb. 11-13. Please have all the collection envelopes handed in to us on or before Feb. 11.

If you would like your child to participate in the Jump Rope for Heart Event and raise money, please sign the consent form on the envelope (please leave it attached to the envelope) and your child can then begin to ask family and friends to support his/her participation through contributions. Your son/daughter can earn a number of prizes depending upon the amount of money collected. Last year we raised just over $4700.00…this year our goal is to do the same or better! Thanks for your help with this event!
