What do we NEED 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.
The food drive will continue until Nov. 21.  We will be keeping track of how many items each class brings in for the food drive.  The class with the most items at the end of the day on Nov. 21 will win a bowling trip to Hudsonville Lanes and a PE CARES T-SHIRT.
This is a great opportunity for our students to care for their community, thanks for sharing in this service project with us at Georgetown.

A Memorable Day In 4th Grade!

Our Limo/Party bus ride was so much fun! We had a lot of energy when we got on the bus! After enjoying  pepperoni, cheese and dessert pizzas and pop at Pizza Ranch…. our bellies were FULL! The ride home was quite different than the ride there! Also, our driver delayed our return back to Georgetown and showed us the lion on top of the castle in Grandville! THANK YOU parents and Georgetown Parent Club for a memorable afternoon!

The Fourth Grade Party will be on Halloween, October 31 at 2:20 pm. Our class has chosen to decorate sugar cookies, drink root beer/orange/strawberry floats, bob for apples, make toilet paper mummies, and decorate mini pumpkins. Parents: If you are willing to donate to the party please check your email from “SignUpGenius”. We do have a tree nut allergy in the classroom, so please check ingredients on packages. Also, we would love parent helpers and so, if you haven’t already, get your BACKGROUND CHECK completed. Students can wear costumes, but they do NOT have to.
