Kids Heart Challenge information came home today and will begin on Feb. 1! This challenge is a fun event where students learn about their hearts while helping others by raising money for the American Heart Association. It prepares your child for success through physical and emotional well-being. Please note that this year the program can only be done online. For more information, check for the Kids Heart Challenge envelope in your child’s blue folder. You can also go to the PE Blog to learn more.
The Annual PE Apparel sale is happening now until February 1. The store is online only. For more information go to the PE Blog. http://mvankoev.edublogs.org
The annual P.E. C.A.R.E.S food drive will be starting tomorrow on November 4! 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, and please do not break apart packaged food)
The food drive will continue until Nov. 18. We will be keeping track of how many items each class brings in. The class with the most items brought in by NOON on Nov. 18 will win a P.E. C.A.R.E.S t-shirt and a bowling trip to Hudsonville Lane. (If allowed this year)
This is a great opportunity for our students to care for their community and to teach our kids compassion and love for others. Thanks for sharing in this service project with us at Georgetown.
We are starting 2 digit addition this week! Please read the parent letter below to review the strategies that we will be using at school.
