We will be focusing on a holiday word list for the next 7 days, therefore, we will not have a Take Home Spelling list. The students will not be tested on these words.
For the first time ever, we are going to have audience participation for our final song this year! The students are very excited to share this experience with you, however, in order to be ready to join in on the fun, we are asking families to download this free jingle bell playing app PRIOR to the holiday program on their phones if you will be attending the 3rd-5th grade performance. THANKS!!

One of our Georgetown students is collecting toys for Toys For Tots. Ainslee Tomaszewski has a goal of collecting 155 toys and we have received 62 as of Monday. These toys will go to families who are having difficulty affording gifts this year.
Please bring your unwrapped gift to school by Thursday, December 8!
The annual 5th grade Candy Cane sale is officially here!
If you are interested in having your child shop at our holiday store, please send in money for Monday, December 5th. We will be shopping in the morning.
All aboard the 3rd grade Polar Express! Our party will be from 9:15-10:30 on Wednesday, December 21st. If you are interested in helping run a center on the day of the party, or are willing to donate items, please click on the Polar Express picture below (for the Signup Genius link, enter your email, and click next). We will be decorating cookies and drinking hot chocolate at the Christmas party. We are planning crafts, games, and snacks related to the Polar Express theme and will be combining all of the 3rd grade classes.
Also for a gift exchange, we would like each child to bring in a small item for each child in their class. We have 21 students. Some ideas might pencils, treats, erasers, or small party items from the store. We would also like each child to bring in a box wrapped in Christmas wrapping paper. The box needs to be opened without unwrapping it (so either wrap the lid separately or choose a box with flaps that can open and close). The kids will be putting the items they brought to share in each other’s boxes. The children may start bringing them in as soon as you would like to send them. Make sure your child’s box is here by Friday, December 16th.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
