About cgreenlu

I was born and raised in the Upper Peninsula. I received my Associates degree from Bay de Noc Community College in Escanaba, Michigan. I earned my Bachelors Degree from Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo and my Masters from Grand Valley State University. This is the beginning of my 34th year of teaching, 31 of them here in Hudsonville. My husband's name is Jeff. He is an Electrical Engineer for a company based out of Colorado called MicroMotion, Inc. We have 2 sons and 1 daughter. Matthew is 29, a GVSU graduate and is in sales/marketing for Aspen Ski Mountain in Aspen, Colorado. Michael is 25, also a GVSU graduate and is teaching at Wayland Public Schools. He married Carissa, his high school sweetheart, who is a nurse at Spectrum. Mikayla is 20 and a sophomore at Michigan State University. We have one dog named Max, who is a 3 year old golden retriever.

You may use this link to shop the book fair online.

PE CARES: Tomorrow is the final day do bring in canned goods. Thank you for all the items that have come in so far.

At-Home Learning Assignments: Please look for an envelope to come home. In this envelope are the assignments for your child to complete on Friday 11/20, Monday 11/23, Tuesday 11/24, and Monday 11/30.
Starting on Tuesday, 12/1 I will begin using Google Classroom to communicate assignments and lessons. These will be live and/or recorded lessons as well as some scheduled classroom meetings via zoom. I will communicate more about the daily learning schedule over the next few days. Thank you for your support and patience as we make this transition.

Parent/Teacher Conferences: I was able to meet (virtually) with some of you tonight and I look forward to meeting with the rest on Wednesday night to share you child’s progress.

P.E. Cares

 

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.

 

Halloween Party

Thank you parents for all your donations for the party! I’m so sorry you cannot join us at Georgetown, but I will post pictures as soon as I can! On Friday, students can choose to wear their costumes to school! Costumes are NOT mandatory. Those students who choose to wear their costumes to school, will be dressed in their costume for the entire school day. Therefore, it is important to leave all of the accessories at home, and not bring them to school. Unfortunately, every year there are parts of costumes left at school and sad children during Trick or Treating.  I thank you parents for all of your support, as you process this news with your children and decide what will be worn to school and what will be saved at home for Trick or Treating.  We have a fun filled day planned and I promise to take many pictures!

Pizza Hut Book It….. IS BACK!

If your child loves Pizza Hut pizza, and you love free pizza….. check out the October calendar that came on last Friday in your child’s backpack. The goal is to read 100 minutes per week (20 minutes, 5 days per week). The Book It calendar is an optional activity, the reading minutes are strongly recommended. If you and your child choose to complete the calendar, please turn it in on November 2, signed. Thank you for your support.
