What’s Coming up-Week of March 22-26, 2021

March Reading MonthGeorgetown is celebrating reading for the month of March. We continue our school-wide western theme of Saddle Up & Read this week! 

  • A Daily/Weekly Reading Goal calendar will be sent home with the students. As a parent, you will sign the log agreeing that your child read for the 5th-grade weekly goal. The goal for 5th grade is 30 minutes a day or 150 minutes per week. If they reach this goal their name will be put in a weekly drawing. Students are to turn in their reading logs on Monday.
  • We will have dress-up days each Friday in March. Our next dress-up day is tomorrow, Friday, March 19 with the theme of wearing shirts with words on them! Next week, Friday, March 26, our theme is Hoedown! We welcome students to wear jeans, maybe even a belt buckle or boots.

Class Chromebooks – Our Chromebooks have arrived! If your child wants to bring in a pair of wired headphones, we encourage them to keep their headphones in a labeled ziplock bag.

M-STEP Reminder – M-STEP testing dates for 5th grade:

  • April 20, 22, 27, 29th. Please avoid any outside appointments on those days in which your child will be gone from school.
