Be Nice • Work Hard • Learn Well


Celebration Friday

imgresIt’s time to celebrate respectful and responsible behavior by the students in our classroom!  They have all been working hard and have been recognized 30 times for outstanding behavior in the lunchroom, hallway, art, music, P.E., STEAM, and our classroom!

The specialist teachers have recently “upped the game” and are expecting more from the students.  In order to earn an outstanding, they must work quietly, listen/follow directions, clean up, work together, and include others…and they are responding!

So, one of the ways we are planning to celebrate is to have an electronics and/or game day tomorrow, December 2.  Please talk with your child about appropriate electronics to bring and games to play.  We’re looking forward to a fun time of celebrating!


M-STEP Celebration!

Dear Parents,celebration-clipart-dancing-people

M-STEP is in the books!  I would like you to know that the students in our classroom did an amazing job.  Their commitment to excellence is definitely worthy of celebrating.  They were incredibly focused and diligent in their problem solving! I can’t say enough good about what I saw over the past two weeks! 🙂  Thanks for all that you did to help set your child up for success.

So, tomorrow we are planning to celebrate with a pizza lunch!  I will be providing two slices of pizza from Jet’s and Hawaiian Punch for each person.  They are welcome to supplement as desired.
Thanks again!
Mr. K

M-STEP Celebration…Part 2

Plan to dress up in full maize and blue gear and show your Eagle pride!


WGVU Celebration

A huge thank you to WGVU and Kailen for another opportunity to celebrate in our classroom!  I am incredibly blessed to spend my days at Georgetown with a very special group of 4th grade students! 🙂

WGVU sent the following information to help us prepare for our celebration at 11:45 on Thursday, January 15, 2015.  Parents, please note the date change and plan your child’s lunch accordingly as we will be having pizza on Thursday, not Wednesday.

We’ll have the pizza, soft drinks, paper plates, cups and napkins—you don’t need to provide anything.  We will videotape a group shot of the entire class waving to the camera saying, “Thanks WGVU!”  Kailen will present Mr. Kooiker with the Cool Teacher award…the taped segments will be put together…and air on WGVU around the children’s programs.
