Did you know that every BOXTOP and every COKE CAP 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 550) 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  (https://us.coca-cola.com/give/)   Select Georgetown Elementary and enter the code on the cap. Now you can recycle the cap. No need to send it to school.

Goodies Factory Fundraiser

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.








Spring Break Schoolwide Challenge

If you are looking for something to do over spring break, I have an idea for at least 120 minutes of your time off:  Learning!  All students who spends 120 MINUTES or MORE engaged in reading or online learning images

(120 total minutes over all the days of break), will be entered into a drawing for a $25 AMAZON GIFT CARD.


Reading Options: Listen to an audio book or a REAL PERSON READ or  JUST READ on your own.  

Did you know that listening to a story stimulates children’s imaginations and emotions, exposes children to rich language patterns, new vocabulary words and a variety of texts?  If you need ideas for great family friendly audio books, check the GEEKMOM / GEEKDAD Blog.  This is a great idea if your child struggles to stay focused reading or if you are in the car traveling.

If you read or listen to a book, enter your total  minutes here.
