Can you believe that summer has slipped away and we are getting super close to our first day of school?
Here is what you will need to “SOAR” into the school year!
Please bring a clean pair of tennis shoes to keep in your locker for the year, so you are prepared for P.E. We start P.E. the first day of school and need to have tennis shoes on to be safe and responsible!
Yay….our Hudsonville Running Club trained so hard and ran a beautiful race last Sat!!!! 21 degrees but the sun was out, thank goodness! Carter Beckham took first place for his age group with a time of 20:42, wow!!! Great job to all our runners! Here are some pics…
Thank you so much for all the support we had for Kids Heart Challenge! We surpassed our goals of raising money for American Heart Association and getting half our school to register online. We raised $11,404.00 and our goal was $9,300.00. We had 311 students register and our goal was 283. That is amazing!!! So not only did we help out a great cause, we also earned some PE equipment for our school! Thanks for being willing to do it all online too, we can not begin to tell how much time that saved us.
We are still in the process of handing out thank you gifts, so hopefully by next week we will complete giving all the key chains and wristbands. Please note prizes like jump ropes, t-shirts and playground balls etc. will be ordered next week from American Heart Association and then they will send them to us, after spring break.
Thanks again, we appreciate it!
Mrs. Nienhuis and Mrs. VanKoevering
The deadline to register and donate money to American Heart Association is March 15.
Here is the link for the Georgetown Schools’ Home Page.
We are working our way through Kids Heart Challenge with each class that comes to gym. Our day is focused on jumping! We have different ways for the kids to jump and different “tools/ropes” for them to try. Jumping is great exercise for our hearts and the kids have learned that they need to eat healthy and exercise their hearts! There is still time to register and give to the American Heart Association. Just registering will help our school earn some PE equipment too!
So jump online, take the Challenge and be a Heart Hero!
