Be Nice • Work Hard • Learn Well


If you are looking for some fun…

…try getting 23 fourth graders to agree on how to spend $50. 

We had that opportunity earlier in the year in our classroom. The PTC gave us an Amazon gift card for having the highest percentage of participation for this year’s Super Hero Walk-a-thon.  

We wrestled with fun ways to spend the money and in the end found something for everyone! 

Thanks again for supporting the students at Georgetown and thank you PTC for the gift card to Amazon! 🙂



Marco’s Pizza Night

Just a reminder to support Georgetown Elementary with a PIZZZA tonight at MARCO’s PIZZA!  When you order your pizza, give your child’s teacher name so that this class can get credit.  The class with the most pizza’s ordered will receive a pizza lunch on Marco’s.

As always thank you for your support!

2014 Rock the WALK-A-THON Wrap-up

DSC03582The 2014 Rock the WALK-A-THON was a HUGE success!  We had a lot of fun and raised over $19,000 for our school.  Thank you SO much families and friends of Georgetown!

The money collected will make the student/family/teacher events for 2014-15 possible this year, as well as impacting the technology opportunities in our building.  So, that means that everyone at Georgetown wins!

Specific winners from our classroom include the following:


Every student who raised $25 will receive a FLASHLIGHT.

POOL PARTY with the PRINCIPAL  (Held in May of 2015…when it is warm again!)

  • Ellise Crowley
  • Kaycie Lawrence

Top Class 

  • 3rd place:  Mr. Kooiker’s Class — 1 extra recess

Individual Prizes

  • Trenton Mervau – Legos

Scholastic Book Fair Gift Certificates

  • Brady O’Brien

As the prizes arrive, they will be passed out to the many winners.

Also, our school-wide goal was $15,000.  We surpassed that total by a significant amount, which meant that it was time for a sumo wrestling celebration.  Check out the video below to get a taste of this entertaining event! 🙂

Thanks again for supporting Georgetown Elementary!

Thank you for your continued support of the students and staff at Georgetown Elementary! 🙂


PTC Meeting


Tonight, Thursday, March 13 at 6:30pm, will be our next Parent Teacher Club meeting for the school year.  This is great way for parents to get involved with Georgetown and keep up with all the extra things that we have going on here at Georgetown.  We would love to have a great turnout!  The more parents that volunteer through the PTC make things easier to carry activities out through out the school year.  This is a great way to sign up for upcoming events/activities that will take place through out the school year at Georgetown.

Hope to see a lot of you at the meeting!  The meeting will be held either in the library or the multi-purpose room (aka the lunch room).
