At Georgetown School, we believe it is important that kids feel safe and that they are kind to each other. Click on the slideshow below to see the key ideas that we will be discussing in our classroom throughout this week.
Even though it was a little chilly, we had a great time on our field trip today! It was wonderful that so many of you could join us for lunch and for our trail walk. We had so much fun!
Our Georgetown Walkathon is on Friday, Oct. 5. This is our only school fundraiser for the year. We are asking families and relatives to consider making a donation to fund our special school and classroom projects. This year’s theme is 80’s Neon Walkathon and students are invited to dress in neon! Families are invited to walk with us. For more information, view this slideshow.
Our class is participating in the BOOK IT! Program to encourage reading at home. You will receive a monthly calendar starting October 1 and will continue through March. Each time your child reads 15 minutes at home they should mark it on their calendar. At the end of each month they can bring their calendar back to school and receive a coupon for a FREE personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut. Happy reading!
We have a classroom full of detectives!!! Our second graders are learning how to solve word problems using strategies that encourage them to think through questions, draw pictures, write equations and check their answers. This will be our focus for the next few weeks :). We will investigate add to, take from, collective, missing/extra information, comparison and two step word problems.
