Kids Heart Challenge

Kids Heart Challenge will be starting February 1 and ending February 15.  To participate in raising money for American Heart Association you will need to sign-up online and collect money online too!  All students will be coming home with information on Friday that will help you get registered online.  Thanks for considering helping the American Heart Association with this great cause!

The information and links below will also be helpful!

Please note the video says that kids can bring envelopes back to school, but we are not collecting money at school.  This will only be done ONLINE!

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


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!


We had a great trip to the Hudsonville Bowling Lanes this afternoon!!  Mr. Kooiker’s 4th grade class had a ball!!  His class raised the most donations in November for LOVE INC. and was the winner of PE CARES t-shirts and a bowling field trip.  We are SO grateful that Hudsonville Lanes continues to support our PE programs in this way.  Please, if you happen to visit their bowling alley, give a great big thank you for letting us come.  🙂

PE in December

We have been working hard and finished up our nutrition unit and are now doing a couple Fitness Circles.  Each class has 14 different stations to complete with a partner and they rotate every 2 minutes.  They get Sweaty Sweaty!!!  Here are a few pics from the last couple weeks…
