We finished the Eagle 5K!!!

We woke up Saturday morning to a chilly 12 degrees!!!!   The sun was out and thankfully there was no wind.  All our runners did such a great job on this very cold day!!!  When the race was finished we spent some time in the cafeteria with food, fun, and fellowship!  Jets Pizza, Hudsonville ice cream, and lots oranges and apples were eaten :)  Thank you to all our runners and our parents who got their child to the race and cheered the runners on!!!  Mrs. Nienhuis and Mrs. VanKoevering finished the race and were very proud coaches!!!  Here is a picture of our team that made it to the race.

GAGA BALL PITS ARE READY TO GO!!!!!!!

Mr Kooikers’ class won the Gaga for dollars competition that was held and Mrs. Walentas’ class came in second!!!!!  They are the first two classes to get to use the Gaga pits!  We are teaching PE rules for Gaga Ball that all the students will use during the school day.  A special thank you goes out to Andy Gryzen from Standale Lumber for donating lumber which allowed us to have 2 Gaga pits instead of one.  Another thank you goes to our own Mr. Rob for putting the pits together.  We all appreciate your hard work!!! Here are a few pictures that we took today….

A HUGE Thanks to all our GT Families who gave to Jump Rope For Heart this year.   As of now our total is $4400.00!  Our goal was to beat last years total of $2587.00.  We have done that and more.  So thank-you, thank-you for supporting this great cause!  Our Georgetown family Rocks!
Mrs. Nienhuis and Mrs. VanKoevering
P.S. We are hoping to have all the prizes before spring break.

Here are a few pictures of the kids celebrating Jump Rope For Heart this past week.  Our 1st and 2nd graders did all jumping stations. The upper elementary students  showed off their jump rope routines and did some contest and the all time favorite of jump the ring.  Ask your kiddos about it!

The Teachers WIN!!!

The teachers stay undefeated after playing the 5th graders on Friday.   Teachers are going 9 years straight with beating the fifth graders in hockey.   It is getting harder and harder to stay with them and they seem to be getting faster!   The Fifth graders put up a good fight, but the teachers walked away with 5 to 2 to victory.

Check out the slide show!

GAGA for Dollars!!

We would like to ask for your support with a Physical Education WISH. Our playground has space to accommodate a GAGA BALL PIT—and we’d love to have a pit added to our green space.

The game of GAGA is high paced, high energy and high fun. It combines the skills of dodging, running, jumping and eye/hand/body coordination. The addition of a GAGA PIT on our playground would benefit:

*PE: Support our instructional skills.
*Recess: Provide another activity for children on the 2-5 playground.
*Community: Available for after hours use for family, friends and community members.

Our PTC has donated partial funding from the Fall WALK•A•THON earnings. We believe we can cover the total cost through a special two week fundraiser.

GOAL: Donate $1.00 per child.

INCENTIVE: Class that raises the most $$ will be first to use the GAGA PIT once it is assembled.

FUNDRAISER DATES: January 12-23. A weekly update on the winners will be posted.

Send your GAGA DOLLARS to school so we can have a Georgetown Gaga Pit!

Pillo Polo/Hockey Play Resumes!

IT’S BACK! We have started our anual pillo polo/hockey tournament. Each class gets divided into four teams and each team gets to come up with their own team name. They have fun coming up with their own team name and they come up with some originals! Then each class gets to play in a tournament. 1st and 2nd play with pillo polo sticks and 3rd-5th play with hockey sticks. They love this unit! We like it because it teaches them how to play on a team and how to be good sports win or lose. Stay tuned for the upcoming traditional 5th grade vs. teachers hockey day.

Here are a couple of photos and a short video.

PE CARES Bowling Trip

Well, we had an awesome time at our PE CARES bowling trip to Hudsonville Lanes!! Mr Bowens class went and really showed off their bowling skills that they have learned in PE the last couple of years. We are so thankful for businesses like Hudsonville Lanes who care enough to support our kids and give them a trip for all their hard work in the PE CARES food drive. Please remember to support them when you decide to go bowling with your families :) Here are a few pictures….
