Last Minute Camp Reminders

Allergy Notice:

Those of us who have seasonal allergies have noticed that this spring has been exceptionally challenging. When we are at camp, we are outside in the woods and fields all day. In past years, students who don’t typically suffer from seasonal allergies have experienced symptoms while we’ve been at camp. If your child is at all prone to outdoor allergies, we’d encourage you to send appropriate medication. You will have an opportunity to update your med form tomorrow morning if needed.

Camp Reminders/Check-In Procedures

DON’T FORGET!!!

  • Bring a sack lunch with your child’s name and teacher’s name on it.
  • Your child’s name must be clearly marked on luggage, sleeping bag and pillow.  Masking tape works really well for this.
  • All medication must be in its original container.  
  • Any cash brought to camp to purchase items at the camp store will be your child’s  responsibility.
  • No electronic devices. (Other than cameras)

Check In/Check Out

    • Drop your child off between 8:45 and 9:00 at the circle drive in front of the school.  PLEASE do not arrive earlier.  We need to allow time for K-4th-grade students to arrive using the normal drop off procedures in the circle drive.

 

Look for your child’s teacher upon arrival on the sidewalk by the circle drive.

 

Check In–  Your child’s teacher will check them in for attendance.

Medication drop-off– This will be done with your classroom teacher.  You will leave any medication (with completed medication sheet) to be administered at camp with them.

Lunch Check In– A volunteer will check for a teacher & student’s name on the lunch and place your child’s lunch in the appropriate box.

Tagging Luggage– A colored tape will be placed on your child’s luggage to help identify it upon arrival at camp.

Luggage Drop Off– Luggage will be given to volunteers to load and take to camp.

After you have gone through the check-in procedures please escort your child to the playground where they will be supervised until we leave.

Plan to be at Georgetown Elementary at 7:00 PM on Friday, May 19 to pick up your TIRED camper.   🙂

Social Studies Test

Last Thursday a study guide went home with your child for the social studies test on Unit #6: Revolutionary War. The test is this Thursday, May 11.

I have also set up an internet game for your child to study the information on-line in a game format. We have issues keeping the same code to access the game, however, I think I found a way to keep the same code for until after our testing date. So, here is the link to the website to access the game and the code needed to enter.

Happy Studying!!

On Monday we had some visitors in room 303! Mrs. VanZalen, a counselor at Baldwin Street Middle School, and Brady, a student from last year’s fifth-grade class, came to answer some of our questions about middle school. Your child received two handouts that are being sent home today:

  • one including important dates for the middle school transition process
  • one listing some school supplies that your child will need to be successful in middle school

Please take the time to look over these together and keep them in a safe place. Questions about dates or other specifics from the handouts should be directed to the office at the middle school. They can be reached at (616)669-7750.
