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. 

Pizza Hut Book It Program

Our classroom is participating in the BOOK IT! program again this year to help encourage reading.  Your child will be bringing home a Pizza Hut Book It calendar with a reading goal on it beginning October 1.  Each time your child reads they may mark it on their calendar.  At the end of the month please have them return their calendar to school and they will bring home a coupon attached to it for a FREE personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut.  This program runs from October thru March.  HAPPY READING!!!

4th Grade Service Project

Every week a fourth grade class walks around the school and collects paper from each classroom and from the office to put into the Paper Gator. Each month, a company empties the bin and Georgetown receives a check based on its weight. If you sort your paper at home, please consider bringing it to Georgetown’s Paper Gator. You can put newspapers, phone books, magazines, catalogs and office paper in it. I usually collect my papers at home in a brown paper bag and throw it in the bin. You cannot put cardboard, trash, plastic, metal or glass inside. Thank you for your support!

Friday- Early Release Day

Tomorrow is an early release day! We will be walking out to the buses around 12:05. 

Even though it’s a short day, we still have a lot to do!!!!
We will finish our countries (deciding on a name for our country, decide on rules the citizens have to follow, and draw the shape of our country), have time with our 1st grade buddies, do our 4th grade service project (collect recycling) for the entire building, go to library, change seats and clean out our desks. We will also have a fire drill and we get to eat popcorn!
It will be a great day!

Happy Labor Day!

I hope you enjoyed the long weekend! Hopefully everyone is rested for 4 more days of early morning wake-ups, packing lunches, snacks, homework folders, and water bottles! Please let me know, via email or note, if your child has a different after-school plan.

The district has adopted a K-12 behavior matrix that is familiar to Georgetown.  The district model, SOAR, blends beautifully with our school mission of BE NICE, WORK HARD, LEARN WELL.  We want our kids to SOAR wherever they are at Georgetown — and many of our existing expectations have meshed well with BE SAFE, OWN IT, ACT RESPONSIBLY and BE RESPECTFUL.  This week our SOAR focus is the BUS.  We’ll talk about appropriate behavior on the bus in a classroom lesson followed by a whole school lesson.  You’ll hear more about this as the week progresses.

*Early Release Day:  Friday, Sept. 20 at 12:15pm.

*School Pictures: Will take place Thurs., September 26.
