We are so proud of our students and their families in how they help our Hudsonville Community! GT students donated 2,653 items for LOVE INC. The class that donated the most items was Mr. Kooikers 4th grade!! They donated 392 items!! They will each get a PE CARES t-shirt and a bowling trip to Hudsonville Lanes!!
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!
What a GREAT night for the Turkey Trot!!!! The weather was beautiful and we had over 1000 students there with their families running the race. Thank you SO much to ALL our volunteers and sponsors! What a great way for the community to all come together and support our kids 🙂 Here are a few pictures :
Tuesday, October 25 is the big day!!!! If you registered your child for the race, they should have brought their race bag and shirt home yesterday 🙂 Please make sure on the day of the race, the bib number is pinned to the outside of whatever they are wearing. We need to be able to see the bib color as they finish. Thanks for all your help with this!
Please dress for the weather and we will see you at the race!!!!
We have had a great start to PE and have been able to get the kids outside!! We love that 🙂 We are heading in to begin fitness testing starting this week with sit and reach. The kids are doing a wonderful job with their stretch and strength exercises and warm-ups!!
We can not wait to see all of you again in PE for the upcoming school year!!! Don’t forget to bring your PE shoes on the very first day of school so you can keep them in your locker and be prepared to come to the gym. Remember, they do not have to be new…just clean and the right size!! See you soon! Mrs. Nienhuis and Mrs. VanKoevering
The weather was a little iffy (very cold) but we completed our field day with a smile! Here are a few pictures!
Just a reminder that the 4th and 5th gr. field day is coming up on June 7 with a rain date of June 8. If your child ordered a field day t-shirt, it will be coming home on Monday June 6!
Please have your child dress for the weather (with sunscreen) and if they take their own water bottle, they are responsible for it.
The Georgetown Running Club papers will go home with students in 3rd-5th grade today!! As the parent, you will have until Feb. 19 to sign and send back the registration sheet for your child, if they want to participate. When we receive their sign up sheet, we will then send home their training packet. Starting in March, we will jog after school on Mondays and Wednesdays until 4:30. The Eagle 5k race this year is on Sat. March 26 at 9:00 am.
We have a favorites day this rotation and it is one of the kids best days. They get VERY hot and sweaty because they get to choose their favorite activity and play it for the allotted amount of time that they earned in class since Oct. Here are a few pictures…
