P.E. C.A.R.E.S

 

 

 

The annual P.E. C.A.R.E.S food drive will be starting on November 4. We are asking for your help by bringing in non-perishable food items for Love Inc. in Hudsonville.

Food items to consider are canned vegetables and fruits, pasta, rice, baked beans, black beans, kidney beans, peanut butter, tuna fish, etc. (please no ramen noodles, and please do not break apart packaged food)

The food drive will continue until Nov. 18.  We will be keeping track of how many items each class brings in.  The class with the most items brought in by NOON on Nov. 18 will win a P.E. C.A.R.E.S t-shirt and a bowling trip to Hudsonville Lane. (If allowed this year)

This is a great opportunity for our students to care for their community, to teach our kids compassion and love for others.  Thanks for sharing in this service project with us at Georgetown.

 

We are BACK!!!

Hello everyone,

We are so excited to get back to school.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We know things will be different, but we are so happy to get back to school and see all of you.   We just wanted to remind you to have tennis shoes to wear to P.E.  Our plan is to start in the gym and then we will be heading outside to move and do different activities.  We still need you to wear tennis shoes.  You do not need new shoes, just clean shoes!   

See you soon!

Mrs. Nienhuis and Mrs. VanKoevering

KEEP MOVING!!!

Hello everyone, we hope you are all doing well.  We would like to encourage you all to get up and move throughout the day.  Do something physical every day!  The American Heart Association sent us some cool ideas and we are passing them on to you.  Check these out to get some fun ideas of what you can do at home!

So excited to have ALL of our 5th graders in the gym to cheer on the winning teams that played against the GT teachers/staff.  We (the teachers/staff) are still undefeated with a score of 6 to 1!!!!!  We appreciate all the stiffness and sore muscles the adults go through to get this done.  It is definitely a highlight for all of us every year 🙂

CHALLENGE TAKEN – CHALLENGE MET!!

Once again our GT family came through and we reached our goal of having 300 kids at Georgetown register for Kids Heart Challenge.  We met the goal for our school and raised over $10,000.00 for the American Heart Association.  AMAZING!

We will be wrapping up handing out the instant gifts next week and ordering the gifts like t-shirts, jump ropes, etc. (Hopefully we will have those “ordered” gifts by spring break)

 

Again, thanks so much for the support!
