Marco’s Pizza Night

Hello Georgetown Families!

Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow night, November 20, is a MARCO’S Pizza Night.  This is a great way to earn money for Georgetown!  Easy too!!  Think of it this way……. it is a good way to get out of making dinner also.  What could be better?!  : )

Please remember when ordering to give them your student’s teacher name.  The class with the most participation will win a pizza party for lunch on behalf of MARCO’S Pizza!!

Enjoy your pizza!

Coin Wars – Game On!

The competition is on this year!

Let’s see which Michigan team has the biggest fans at Georgetown prior to their showdown in Lansing on November 2nd, the Saturday before we kick off our Book Fair.


This is the fun part, if MSU fans bring in more coins Mr. Kooiker will wear MSU colors and if U of M fans bring in more coins Mr. Bowen will wear U of M colors on Wednesday, October 30th for Spirit Day!  Which team will it be?  Help us decide with your loose change!


Along with supporting your team your loose change will help us purchase book for classroom libraries.  This helps get more kids reading and those kids reading more. 

The All for Books money we collect also helps readers beyond our school and community. Scholastic Book Fairs matches monetary donations with a donation of up to one million books to the Kids In Need Foundation and Kids in Distressed Situations, Inc.

Please send in your donation prior to October 29th.  Baggies and book slips will be sent home the week of October 21st.  We’ll be weighing the coins at 3:00 PM on Tuesday, October 29th to determine the winner!  

Please join us on October 30th and wear your favorite team’s apparel.   

Your act of kindness helps to bring more knowledge, imagination, and love for reading into the lives of our students. 

Thank you!  Mrs. Havens, Chair of Book Fair and Georgetown Staff
