What a great morning we had for our GT running club. It was cold and windy but the sun tried to peak out. All of our runners finished the Eagle 5k and celebrated after with apples, bananas, yogurt, granola bars, pizza and ice cream!!!! Here are a few pictures 🙂
K-5th grade started their bowling unit. 3rd-5th gr. learned how to take a 3 step approach and all students learned their cue words (push, swing, bowl, hello). This week the students will learn how to keep score. We are SO thankful to the Hudsonville Bowling Alley for the use of their lanes and bowling equipment. All students will earn 3 free games at the alley when we complete the unit!!! Here are a few pics 🙂
Please remember that JRFH envelopes are due next week Wednesday, Feb. 28. Online donations are due as well. On Feb. 28 we will be starting our jumping events in class. We will dedicate our class time to jumping! Thanks for you help with raising money for the American Heart Association.

We had a great ending to our mileage club. GT students ran 3,657 miles all together!!!!! We had our prize drawing last Friday and handed out our awards for the 20 mile runners! Way to go GT mileage club joggers 🙂
Wow, so far GT students have logged 1,113 miles!!!!! Way to go kids, keep up the great work 🙂
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!!
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.
