FYI

One Word

As we returned to school this week, we took some time to set our intentions for the rest of the school year. We each considered some challenges and goals that we have for the year, and each of us selected one word as our focus for the year. Earlier in the week, students wrote about why they selected their words and looked for some specific ways that they could live out their words. We also posted photos with our words in the classroom to remind us of our intentions. I encourage you to have a conversation with your child about his or her word!

Community Education Opportunity: Film Screening and Panel Discussion of Screenagers: The Next Chapter

As a 5th grade team, we feel this would be a great opportunity for parents to check this out as it is in line with a lot of things we’ve been noticing and observing in students as technology continues to play an important role in students’ lives. Check out the trailer for the film, Screenagers: The Next Chapter, or the original film, Screenagers, to help inform you and your family as you navigate the increasing social demands and pressures of today’s students with technology.

P.E. Cares Food Drive

From our amazing P.E. teachers:
The annual P.E. C.A.R.E.S food drive will be starting on November 6.  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)
The food drive will continue until Nov. 21.  We will be keeping track of how many items each class brings in for the food drive.  The class with the most items at the end of the day on Nov. 21 will win a bowling trip to Hudsonville Lanes and a P.E. C.A.R.E.S t-shirt.
This is a great opportunity for our students to care for their community. Thanks for sharing in this service project with us at Georgetown.
Mrs. Nienhuis and Mrs. VanKoevering
