Open House & Wish List

SunI hope that you are enjoying this beautiful summer. Personally, I cannot believe how quickly summertime has flown by.

In the time before school begins I will be wrapping up household projects, enjoying my swimming pool, and playing with my puppy, Thor!  In between these last summer activities, I will be busy preparing our classroom for a fantastic year.

I’ve put together a Wish List  of items we use in our classroom.  You may bring them at our Open House or have your child bring them the first day of school. Any donation is greatly appreciated. :)

Georgetown’s Open House on Wednesday,  August 23th @ 6:30!  I am looking forward to seeing all of you there.

Enjoy the rest of your summer!

I am VERY excited to meet all of you and begin our school year together!

Did you know that every BOXTOP and every COKE CAPS collected earns money for our school?   This summer we would like you to work hard to collect both. 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! Download your form here:  Summer Box Tops

COKE CAPS:  Super easy. Save the caps and go online to enter collection! COKE WEBSITE  (   Select Georgetown Elementary and enter the code on the cap.   Now you can recycle the cap. No need to send it to school.
