P.E. C.A.R.E.S

The annual P.E. C.A.R.E.S food drive will be starting on November 4. We are asking for your help by bringing in non-perishable food items for Love Inc. in Hudsonville.

Food items to consider are canned vegetables and fruits, pasta, rice, baked beans, black beans, kidney beans, peanut butter, tuna fish, etc. (please no ramen noodles, and please do not break apart packaged food)

The food drive will continue until Nov. 18.  We will be keeping track of how many items each class brings in.  The class with the most items brought in by NOON on Nov. 18 will win a P.E. C.A.R.E.S t-shirt and a bowling trip to Hudsonville Lane. (If allowed this year)

This is a great opportunity for our students to care for their community, to teach our kids compassion and love for others.  Thanks for sharing in this service project with us at Georgetown.

Specials To Go Kits

This year for STEAM and Art, we hope to have “Specials To Go Kits.” Students will bring their bags with their supplies in them to avoid sharing materials. This eliminates the need to clean supplies used after each class, in order to maximize learning time. We would like students to have these items in a ziploc bag serving as a “to go kit” for specials classes. These supplies will be kept in each student’s desk/cubby.

Specials To Go Kit

1 Gallon size ziploc bag with your child’s name and class labeled on the outside
2 Glue Sticks
24 color crayon box
Colored pencils
Hand held pencil sharpener
Black Sharpie permanent marker
