Our annual P.E. C.A.R.E.S. Food Drive starts this Wed., November 1. The Food drive will continue until November 16. All the food collected will be given to Love Inc. in Hudsonville, which will help our local families. Thanks for your help and support in this community service project, and for taking this opportunity to teach our kids compassion and love for others.
The class that bring in the highest number of items will win a PE CARES t-shirt and a bowling field trip to Hudsonville Lanes.
Here is how many items GT families have brought in over the past years.
We are in the middle of our Nutrition month and discussing the 5 food groups and what we need to do to keep our bodies healthy! We are also bringing in lots of food to help with PE CARES (collecting and regiving essential supplies). K classes continue to work on underhand throw. Here are a few pictures!
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!!
From November 5-16, we will be engaged in a school wide service project called TWO ACTS OF MINDFUL GIVING: LOCAL AND GLOBAL.
- The classroom’s goal is to raise $60 and bring in 60 non-perishable items.
- We would like every child to donate 2 non-perishable food items and 2 dollars toward this service project.
- The canned goods will supply local families with much needed food. The money will purchase a rechargeable solar light for schools in Uganda.
- To find out more about this special project, please visit our GEORGETOWN BLOG. And…thank you for giving!
- In P.E., the class with the most items brought in will receive a free P.E. C.A.R.E.S. t-shirt and a field trip to Hudsonville Bowling Lanes.
