THE COUNT DOWN BEGINS!!

I can not believe we are less than two weeks away from the start of school.  I know we have enjoyed some time off but we are ready for routines again.   So with routine comes school and with school comes math, reading, science, history, recess, and SPECIALS!   Especially P.E. 🙂

Please come prepared for P.E. the first day of school with your tennis shoes.  Remember that we ask for all students to keep a clean pair of shoes in their locker at school, so they are always prepared.   GT rotates on a four day schedule and that will be tricky to remember when each class has P.E.   So by keeping a pair of clean tennis shoes at school,  they will always have them.   Tennis shoes do not need to be new, just clean!  Dirty shoes leave a mess in the gym and make our floor very slippery.   Clean shoes = clean floor!  Thanks for your cooperation.

See you next week at the open house,

Mrs. Nienhuis and Mrs. VanKoevering

8 wks left!!!!

Wow….can not believe we are on the countdown for the end of the school year already.  We are in the middle of 6 different rotations of physical fitness skills.  We have completed our sit-ups and we are in process of completing sit and reach which tests our flexibility.  Then we will focus on push-ups, shuttle run, the mile run and the pacer.  So, lots to do and we are hoping for some warm weather to come our way!!

EAGLE 5K-COMPLETED!!

The weather might not have been the greatest but all the kids were troopers.  We had 44 runners from Georgetown come out and run in the rain!  They all did a great job and we are so proud of our GT Runners.  We have a few highlights and photos to share.

Kendall from 5th Burdis, took 1st place for 5th grade girls with a time of 22:00

Owen from 5th Gort took 2nd place for 5th grade boys with a time of 20:33

Austin from 5th Gort took 4th place for 5th grade boys with a time of 22:22

Coleton from 3rd Flory took 2nd place for 3rd grade boys with a time of 22:40

HOCKEY ANYONE?

WOW!  Teachers pull off the win again, but it was close.  5th graders 1, teachers 2!   It was a great game and the teachers were sweating this one out.  The 5th graders put up a great fight, but teachers are still undefeated.  This is the 11th year we have played the 5th graders and we keep getting older and they stay the same 🙂  Every year is harder and harder, but still so much fun!
