Please forward an e-mail address to Lisa email@example.com in the office if you wish to be able to track student attendance in the Student Achieve Program. It will also allow parents to view Grade 7/8 academic reports.
Please remember to sign your child IN or OUT if you are dropping them off late or picking them up early. A note is another option in place of signing in or out or speaking directly to someone at the school by phone or in person.
Georgetown School is pleased to be starting up a revised reward program to choose the Hornet Pick of the Week. It will be to give recognition to all the positive acts that the children have “been caught” doing….this will be done by offering some exciting prizes and having the students recognized for these positive behaviours.
There will be a short assembly Tuesday October 17th in the gym to introduce this exciting program to the staff and students.
