Jump Rope for Heart, Coming February 15-20!

We are busy finishing up our hockey/pillo polo unit with all of our classes.  Stay tuned for an update about the annual 5th grade teams vs. the teachers.  We will be playing that on Feb. 1.  🙂

 

Starting January 27 -February 1(our 4 day rotation), we will be talking with our classes about Jump Rope For Heart.  Each student will be getting information and a pledge envelope when they come to P.E., Jan. 27-Feb.1.  Please take the time to read the information and sign up your child/children if you are willing to help raise money for the American Heart Association.  Last year our school raised $8,648.00 and our goal this year is to raise the same or more.  Please keep checking the blog for more information about JRFH!

Eagle 5k

Saturday was awesome!!!  Georgetown Joggers did a great job!!!  It was a very cold race but there wasn’t any wind so we were thankful for that.  We had 27 students race along with coaches and parents.  What an exciting event to see them cross the finish line after all that training.  After the race we all got to go inside to warm up and get our stomachs filled.  They even had Hudsonville ice cream!  Congratulations GT Joggers!
