School Open House

SAVE THE DATE!  

Our grade 1-5 Open House is on Wednesday, August 22 from 6:30-7:30. Feel free to bring any of your child’s supplies with you to the open house. It really helps them feel settled in and prevents heavy backpacks on the first day. 🙂 Please see the tab to the left for a complete list of school supplies. Looking forward to seeing you!

Box Tops & Coke Caps

COLLECT BOX TOPS & COKE CAPS!

Did you know that every BOX TOP and every COKE CAP collected earns money for our school? This summer we would like you to work hard to collect both. The money we earn will go toward a basketball hoop on our K/1 playground!

BOXTOPS: Every completed BOXTOP sheet is worth $5.00. If every child from Georgetown fills one sheet this summer, our school will earn $2,750! Many thanks to Lori Simpson and her team of BOX TOP counters, trimmers and packers. This is a great program that pays off because of all of YOU! Download your form here: Summer Box Tops

COKE CAPS: Super easy! Save the caps and go online to enter your collection: COKE WEBSITE. Select Georgetown Elementary and enter the code on the cap. Now recycle the cap, no need to send it to school.

School Supply List

Happy July! I will give your child many tools that we will use every day (crayons, pencils, folders, notebooks), but I would love some help with these specialty items.

Please bring these supplies to our Open House on Wednesday, August 22. 

  • pencil box (make sure that it can open and close easily)
  • earbuds (please label with your child’s name, a piece of tape works well)
  • gym shoes (kept in your child’s locker) 
  • 1 box of dry erase markers (any size and color)
  • sticky notes (3×3 size)
  • 1 glue stick
  • 1 highlighter
  • 1 pair of child’s scissors, labeled with your child’s name
  • 1 box of Kleenex
  • 1 box of graham crackers
  • 1 box of bandaids
  • 1 container of Clorox wipes

Important items your child should bring to school every day.

  • backpack (big enough for a lunchbox, folder, library book, and winter snow gear)
  • filled water bottle (water only, no juice please)
  • 2 healthy snacks (one for the morning and one for the afternoon… second graders get hungry!)

Thanks so much for helping your child get ready for second grade! Please email me if you have any questions. 🙂
