Because of our snowdays this week, we are ending PE CARES on Friday Nov. 21. We will give you a full update on Monday to see which class gets the PE CARES t-shirts and the bowling field trip. LOVE INC. in Hudsonville will come to collect all items on Monday so all the food that was donated will be distributed to our Hudsonville families. Thanks so much for your help!

This week we started our annual PE CARES (Collecting and Regiving Essential Supplies) project. All students were asked to donate non-perishable food items to give to needy families in Hudsonville. We will keep collecting until Nov. 20. The class that brings in the most items will win a PE CARES t-shirt and get to have a bowling field trip to Hudsonville Lanes!!!! Thanks for all your help!!

The start to our year in PE has been just great! Thanks to all the parents that have sent a clean pair of tennis shoes with their child to keep in their locker for PE. We have been very busy and have already completed 2 fitness skill tests..the shuttle run and sit and reach! Hopefully we will have sun for the next few days so we can get our mile run completed. :)

Just a heads up that our Turkey Trot entry form will be coming home the end of this week. This is an annual Hudsonville Family Event that we would love for you to be a part of! Please read over the form and send it back in by Oct.6 if you are interested.

It’s time to head back to the Georgetown Elementary gym! Hope you had a great summer!!! Parents please remind your children to bring a clean pair of tennis shoes to keep in their locker on the first day of school. This pair does not have to be new…just clean!! We ask that the students keep them in their locker so they will always have them for PE. In order to do their best, they have to have proper footwear. Thanks so much for helping us with that!!

Schools out…all finished

What a wonderful year we had again. Parents, just wanted to remind you over the summer to check that your childs’ PE shoes still fit. Summer is the perfect time to find a clearance or cheaper pair of tennis shoes for the next school year if your child grows :) They will need a clean pair of tennis shoes in the fall that they can keep in their locker just for PE. They do not have to be new! Have a wonderful and safe summer! See you in the fall…Mrs. Nienhuis and Mrs. VanKoevering
