Congratulations, Mrs. Totten!

Mrs. Totten, our incredible STEAM STUDIO teacher, has been selected as one of the Air Zoo’s Science Innovation Hall of Fame Educator Excellence Awardees!

Mrs. Totten excels as a teacher who implements curriculum that grows passionate learners.  Students in her classroom utilize Project Lead the Way materials  — and their K-5 participation grows each student into an innovative, creative designer and problem solver.

We feel honored to work with Mrs. Totten every day — and as a staff, we are thrilled that she is being recognized!

If you would like a sneak peak into the Mrs. Totten’s classroom, check out her STEAM STUDIO BLOG.


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.

Snow Day

We have another SNOW DAY today.  Please encourage your child to do at least 30 minutes of learning (see below).  Thanks to our AMAZING PTC (made possible by your WALK•A•THON Donations), $10 Barnes and Noble Gift Card (one per grade) will be given to randomly drawn students.


Mrs. Reagan will throw pizza party for the classroom that has the MOST PARTICIPANTS in SNOW DAY LEARNING.   She will look at who has participated over all the snow days (last Friday, today …. and maybe other days this week) and the class with the most students who participate will get a PRINCIPAL PIZZA PARTY!

Collect BOXTOPs.  Turn them into school as soon as you have a sheet completed. Every completed BOXTOP sheet is worth $5.00.  If every child from Georgetown (approx 580) fills one sheet during the school year,  our school earns $2,750. MAKE SURE YOU CHECK EXPIRATION DATE!

Fall Party Details


  • Fall party will be on Wednesday, Oct. 31 from 2:15-3:15. Mrs. Reagan has sent out a notice that parents are welcome to come and HELP only!  Sorry, otherwise there is not enough space in the classrooms!
  • Thank you in advance to those of you have volunteered your time and/or items for our party! You may send in your donated items prior to the party date. However, if you signed up to bring the ice cream….please bring that at the time of the party.

I had a question about masks as students prepare for Halloween. See below for guidelines outlined by Mrs. Reagan:

  • NO MASKS during the school day, only for the party.  This means no masks in the hallway or on the bus loop or on the playground.
  • Party time masks: Only if they are NOT SCARY.  Who determines if they are scary – I do!  If there is a mask I believe might be too scary for others to see, it should NOT be brought to school.  Masks that are nice/friendly can only be worn during the class party!
