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! Download your form here: Summer Box Tops
COKE CAPS: Super easy. Save the caps and go online to enter collection! COKE WEBSITE (https://us.coca-cola.com/give/) Select Georgetown Elementary and enter the code on the cap. Now you can recycle the cap. No need to send it to school.

First Grade Families,
Summer is just around the corner! If you are looking for some ideas to enhance your child’s summer fun, remember he or she has access to the following activities all summer long…
1. Book Lists – Today I sent home a book list with some (easy-to-find) book ideas for your child’s independent and guided reading levels. Your child should spend 20 minutes reading at home each day. Plan to build this into your daily routine. If you are looking for some great series books, we have been loving these characters at school: Mr. Putter & Tabby, Henry & Mudge, Poppleton, Frog & Friends, Zelda & Ivy, Walter & Iris, Young Cam Jansen, Freddy Fernortner, Junie B. Jones, and Magic Tree House.
2. Raz-Kids – Continue to read books, listen to stories, and take comprehension quizzes even during the summer! I have updated your child’s level so it matches the books that are just right for him or her. Of course, when you have finished one level, you can move right up to the next one! This is great practice for the Reading Counts program that your child will be starting next year. Log-in to CLEVER to access Raz-Kids.
3. Moby Max – This website offers a great way to practice the math fact fluency that we have focused on all school year. A quick 5 minute practice each day is a great way to keep your child’s skills fresh. There are also games and learning activities in other subject areas. Have fun exploring! Log-in to CLEVER to access MobyMax.
4. Summer Library – Our school library is open on Tuesdays from 9:30 until 10:30. Find some “just right” books to read at home and chat with your past and future teachers too!
5. Math Packets – If you are interesting in working with your child on some problem solving skills, I sent home some math review packets from our units this year for you and your child to work on. These are totally optional, but do offer some great practice with some of our most challenging math skills and strategies.
Thank you for encouraging your child to keep on learning over the summer!
Mrs. Stadt :)
Our final week of the 2017-2018 school year is here!!! I can still picture each cute little first grader on the first day of school. It is hard to believe that 37 weeks of being nice, working hard and learning well have passed.

We will also be working on a special Memory Book all week as we take a look back at our favorite events and learning from the year!
