P.E. C.A.R.E.S.

The annual P.E. C.A.R.E.S food drive will be starting on November 6.  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)

 

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 P.E. C.A.R.E.S 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.

COLLECT BOX TOPS

Did you know that every BOXTOP collected earns money for our school?   This summer we would like you to work hard to collect box tops. The money we earn will go toward a basketball hoop on our K/1 playground!

 

BOXTOPS:  Every completed BOXTOP sheet is worth $5.00.  If every child from Georgetown (approx 570) fills  one sheet this summer, our school will earn $2,750.   Many thanks to Lori Simpson and all of you who are on her team of BOX TOP counters, trimmers and packers.  This is a great program that pays off because of all of YOU!

Middle School Music Program Information

Is your fifth-grader interested in participating in one of the music programs in middle school?

Click here for information on the band, choir, and orchestra programs offered to middle school students in Hudsonville and how to determine which program or instrument might be a good fit for your child. Please take the time to review this information as there have been some changes to the process this year. Most notably, instrument fittings and choir information will be available during the evening meeting times rather than during the school day.
