Kindergarten Open House

Our kindergarten open house is scheduled for Tuesday, August 20th from 6:30-7:30.  Please come to meet me, bring in your supplies and check out our classroom!  The supply list and wish list is located under the Kindergarten Information heading on this blog.  This is open house style so come when it works for you within this hour.

Please bring a $1.00 per child donation for popcorn money to the open house. The Parent Club provides popcorn to all students (595+) one Friday per month. Your donations make this possible!  Please also bring a 4×6 picture of your family!  We are planning to have a small family board at the front of the room and I am hoping to fill it with family pictures!  I am so excited to meet everyone at the open house!

If you have any questions prior to us meeting, please send me an email—htindal@hpseagles.net.  Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Box Tops Needed

COLLECT BOX TOPS

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
