Once again the Teachers/Secretaries/Principal uphold their winning streak against the 5th graders. This year was a little different and we had every 5th grade hockey team get a chance to play. Our final score was 16-4. Here are a few pictures:
Georgetown families, we can not thank you enough for all the donations to the American Heart Association!! We raised just over $12,300.00 WOW! We wanted to let you know that the larger thank you gifts (like the yo yo, t-shirt, and play ground ball etc.) will come in after Spring Break. Here are a few pictures of our event in PE.
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.
Turkey Trot 2020 will still be happening this year but in a little different way. Read the flyer below for more details:

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 🙂
|The Kids Heart Challenge is in full swing! We hope you’re having a ball and feel as rewarded as we do helping fight heart disease and stroke. Keep up the great work, you’re making a HUGE difference!
Remember, more than 50% of kids are not getting the physical activity they need to be healthy. You’re helping to change that. We have a special incentive at our school. If we can get 50% of our students registered and taking the healthy challenges, we will receive an additional $500 to purchase new PE equipment. Help us reach our goal! Get your student registered for Kids Heart Challenge today!
Information about Kids Heart Challenge will be coming home with students today. Please note that this fundraiser is for the American Heart Association, it does also helps us get P.E. Equipment for GT. The Kids Heart Challenge Fundraiser is done ONLINE (see link below) and will be open from February 6 until February 28.
When your child joins Kids Heart Challenge (formerly Jump Rope for Heart) they will hear from kids with special hearts and raise funds to help those born with heart defects. Students learn about taking care of their own heart through fun challenges and activities for physical, social and emotional health.
Get online and register your student today:
Please note that thank-you prizes earned by students will be handed out when they come to P.E. class. Some prizes need to be ordered when the fundraiser is over and will be delivered sometime in March. Any money donated after Feb. 28 will not earn prizes.
