In keeping with a wonderful Hudsonville tradition, our fifth-grade students will have the opportunity to go on an overnight camping trip this spring. School camping is an experience of cooperative living that gives our children the opportunity to learn in an atmosphere unlike that of the classroom. Georgetown fifth graders will enjoy one night and two full days of activities at Camp Henry in Newaygo, Michigan. We will leave Georgetown on the morning of Thursday, May 18 and will return on the evening of Friday, May 19. We are also planning a celebration for all fifth-grade students near the end of the year.
The cost to participate in camp and other fifth grade activities will be $100 per student. We have one fundraising opportunity for students to raise money to offset some of the costs of these activities. Students have the opportunity to sell cookie dough, sandwiches, and a variety of other treats from The Goodies Factory to friends and family members. Forty percent of the sales for each student will be applied to his or her camp/activity costs.
Fifth Grade Fundraiser Dates to Remember:
- Monday, Oct. 24 – Orders and payment must be turned in to your child’s teacher.
- Please send one check payable to Georgetown Elementary.
- Wednesday, Nov. 16 – Product will be delivered to Georgetown.
- Due to the perishable nature of some of the products, products MUST be picked up at school between 3:00 and 5:00 PM on this day.
