School Bus End of Day Changes

Dear Parents and Guardians,

To ensure the safety of our students, we will be changing the end of day bus routine. Right now, students board the bus at he front of the school at 3:15p.m. Starting on Monday October 15th we will have the bus students board the bus at the back door of the school. Students who travel home on the bus will be dismissed at 3:08 to board the bus and leave the parking lot. Students who walk home or are picked up will be dismissed at 3:10 after the bus departs from the parking lot. Students who are walking or being picked up will not be permitted to leave until the bus is out of the parking lot.

We ask that when picking up students in the parking lot at the end of the day you pay close attention to keeping the bus loop around the perimeter of the parking lot clear.

Thank your for your continued support in making Georgetown Elementary safe for all students.

Hornet Pick of the Week- October 5th

Big Congratulations going out to our first Hornet Pick of the Week for the 2018/ 2019 school year. Bennett M. in Ms. Mills grade 1 class was the helpful hornet chosen to be the first to grace our Hornet Pick of the Week Wall of Fame.  Great job Bennett on being a helpful and caring classmate.


Alternative Seating for Georgetown Students

Students are learning something new this morning…all about the flexible seating choices they will have in their classrooms and how to use these seats properly. 

Little bodies need options that let them move, choices that keep them focused on their work and let them move their bodies at the same time.

Georgetown Home and School has generously purchased several types of flexible seating for use in all of the classrooms to help our little and not so little students focus on school and stay comfortable.


Attentive and learning the seating rules in Grade 2/3!!
