Book Camp

Bustin’ Through Books Boot Camp begins Monday, February 1!   Every child who participates will be logging their minutes read at Boot Camp.  They can also log minutes read in the classroom and at home.

If you would like to have them add their minutes from home, you can find their reading logs on the school blog at this location:  BUSTIN THRU BOOKS LOGS There is a log for each child who is a camp member.


Every single minute spent reading is VALUABLE!  Thank you for your support of your reader and this program!

Revision Museum

We had such a fun day, but one of the highlights was our Revision Museum with Mrs. Stadt’s class.  The kids did a great job listening and asking questions in Mrs. Stadt’s room and they did a wonderful job teaching their friends from next door about how they had learned to revise their stories in our room.  Check out the slide show below to see some photos from our museum.

pajamasSo the kids are all excited for our upcoming Friday.  It is officially our all school PJ/slippers/stuffed animal day.  On top of that, it is popcorn day.  We have also earned our blanket day (perfect timing, right?!).  Our class will also be celebrating the end of our fourth unit of writing with our traditional fruit punch toast and a Revision Museum with Mrs. Stadt’s class.  AND, our class will be enjoying a nice doughnut snack that day too!  There couldn’t possibly be anything better, right?  Well there is…we are also taking this opportunity to watch the movie that we earned by bringing in so many box tops (yes, the movie comes with a snack too!)!  WOW, the kids have named this Friday: THE BEST DAY EVER !

So, if you don’t mind helping me out a little bit, when it comes to shipping their blanket to school on Friday, please help them make a blanket choice that will be easy to carry to and from school and small enough to keep with them at their seat all day.  I truly appreciate it!

We hope your Friday is as fun as ours!!

Field Trip

busIn Room 104 we are getting super excited for our upcoming class trip to Family Fare.  The big day is next Wednesday, January 27th.  We will be gone for a portion of the morning, from about 9:45 until 11:15ish, but will be back in plenty of time for lunch.

For more information, please read our class trip note.

Thanks for ALL your support!

Georgetown families showed tremendous support for our building community service project, “Takin Down Cancer-Community for a Cure.”

It took four trips into the bank on Friday to deposit the coins and cash raised. Our school raised over $1,000 on Friday alone. WOW!

For the week Georgetown brought in $2,784.85 by collecting coins, cash donations and having a couple of class coin wars. If you add in the the monies acquired through t-shirt sales bought by staff and a few students we raised well over $3,000.00.

The organizers of the event are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support by our Georgetown family and are extremely appreciative.

As a teenager involved in the event said, “Your school is the BOSS!,” and ” You are my hero’s.”

Well, I think that sums it up! 🙂

Thanks again for yet another successful building community service project!
