Box Tops & Coke Caps!

COLLECT BOX TOPS & COKE CAPS

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.

Moby Max Summer Learning!

Keep On Learning With Reading & Mobymax

Dear Parents,

Studies have shown that students can lose up to 50% of learning during the summer vacation.   Georgetown is challenging you and your child to “KEEP ON LEARNING” this summer to prevent summer slide.  There are two ways to record your learning time:

  • Reading:  Log into  this form  to record the number of minutes you read.  You can record each day or enter the total for each week.
  • MOBYMAX Math and Reading:  We recommend that each child consistently use MobyMax each week in the core areas of reading and mathematics. If interested, you can also choose to work on other learning modules.  Spending just a few minutes each day on Mobymax will help to reduce  “summer slide” and keep your child’s learning skills fresh over the summer.

Our goals for students over the summer are below. Students who reach or exceed goals will be entered in a drawing for an Amazon Gift Card (1 per grade). This is for their grade next year.

Reading Minutes Mobymax
  • First Grade: 100 minutes
  • Second Grade: 200 minutes
  • Third Grade: 300 minutes
  • Fourth Grade: 400 minutes
  • Fifth Grade:  400 minutes
  • First Grade: 100 pts
  • Second Grade: 200 pts
  • Third Grade: 300 pts
  • Fourth Grade: 400 pts
  • Fifth Grade:  500 pts

If you’d like to be part of Georgetown’s challenge to “Keep On Learning” please follow the instructions below.  If your child is new to the school and you would like login information, email Mrs. Reagan.  treagan@hpseagles.net

Have a great summer…and keep on learning with READING and MOBYMAX!

Week 38 (LAST WEEK)!

Our final week of the 2016-2017 school year is here!!!  I can still picture each cute little first grader on the first day of school.  It is hard to believe that 37 weeks of being nice, working hard, and learning well have passed.  In celebration of our amazing journey this year, we will be enjoying fun activities each day this week just like last week.  Check out the list below – but don’t share too much with your first grader.  Shhhhhh – each special event is a surprise!!!

June 5 – Mo Willem’s Day

June 6 – No Shoes (in the classroom) Day 🙂

June 7 – Movie and Popcorn Day

June 9 – Last Day of School & Early Release Day

Students are dismissed from school at 12:15.  (Sack lunches can be ordered through Food Service and will be sent home with your child.  Please make sure your child knows if he or she needs to order a sack lunch.)

June 16 – Report Cards Mailed

Report cards will be sent via mail on June 16.  Information about your child’s second grade teacher will be on the comments page.  Class lists will not be posted due to confidentiality.

It is going to be a great week!!!

Don’t forget to continue to empty and send backpacks and blue folders right up until the last day of school.  Lots of goodies are still being sent home. Thank you!!!

Thank You, Volunteers!

We have benefitted from the support of volunteers in the classroom all year. We had loads of parents & grandparents in for our Halloween party. Parents volunteered to help at home by taping books from our classroom library. We’ve had parents come in to copy and bind books for us. On our zoo trip, we had almost as many parent volunteers as students in the class. For the generous gift of your time and energy as a volunteer, we are so thankful!

Week 37!

THANK YOU so much to all the moms, dads, and grandmas that came with us to the zoo last Monday!!!  We had a great time touring the zoo, ate a delicious picnic lunch, and had lots of fun playing on all the playgrounds around the zoo and picnic area.  We couldn’t have asked for better weather!!!  It was a perfect day!!

May 29 – Memorial Day: No School

May 30 – PJ Day

May 31 – Twin Day

June 1 – Crazy Hair Day

June 2 – Hat Day

June 2 – Talent Show

The 3rd-5th graders are performing.  We get to watch the morning show!

Please make sure your child continues to come to school with their blue folder and backpack.  A lot of materials, creations, and goodies will be coming home over the next two weeks.  It is hard to believe that our year is almost done – only 8.5 more days!

One last note, I have received some bubbles donations so far (Thank you, Thank you!!).  If you have not donated anything yet, please consider the larger bottles of bubbles!! Feel free to send in your goodies anytime before that day.  Thanks so much!
