It was an absolute pleasure getting to meet so many smiling faces at Open House on Wednesday, and I want to extend a HUGE thank you for all of the families who have donated supplies to our classroom. Your support is greatly appreciated! For your convenience, I’m linking Open House handouts at the bottom of this post. Remember that you can send in any paperwork this week with your child and I will file it with the office.
A couple other reminders:
Monday morning at 8:55 we have our first day of Music! Woohoo!! Our special rotation goes, Music, P.E., Art, and STEAM.
If you are sending your child with a snack, please remember to be sure that it is nut-free. All of 5th grade will be nut-free this year to help keep our students safe.
Rest, relax, and enjoy your last summer weekend! I cannot wait to see bright, shining faces on Monday morning!
Here are the handouts from Open House…

Studies have shown that students can lose up to 50% of learning during the summer vacation.
Georgetown is challenging you and your child to “KEEP ON LEARNING” this summer to prevent summer slide. There are two ways to record your learning time:
Our goals for students over the summer are below. Students who reach or exceed goals will be entered in a drawing for an Amazon Gift Card (1 per grade). This is for their grade next year.
- First Grade: 100 minutes
- Second Grade: 200 minutes
- Third Grade: 300 minutes
- Fourth Grade: 400 minutes
- Fifth Grade: 400 minutes
- First Grade: 100 pts
- Second Grade: 200 pts
- Third Grade: 300 pts
- Fourth Grade: 400 pts
- Fifth Grade: 500 pts
- Reading: Log into this form to record the number of minutes you read. You can record each day or enter the total for each week.
If your child is new to the school and you would like login information, email Mrs. Reagan. firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great summer…and keep on learning with READING and MOBYMAX!
Did you know that every BOXTOP 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 (approx 570) fills one sheet this summer, our school will earn $2,750. Many thanks to Lori Simpson and all of you who are on her team of BOX TOP counters, trimmers, and packers. This is a great program that pays off because of all of YOU!

WELCOME TO FIFTH GRADE! We are going to have such an amazing year together! I can’t wait to meet you and come together as a class! 🙂
