Georgetown Parent Club – Feelin’ The Love

An extra loud shout-out to…Georgetown Parent Club!  HUGE thanks for supporting one of my favorite projects at Georgetown Elementary – our collection of student artwork that is displayed throughout our building.  Each year our parent club provides funds to professionally frame student art pieces; we now have over 70 works of art hanging in our hallways for students and visitors to enjoy.  Here are a few of our latest additions.

THANKS Georgetown PTC – we love ya!

Georgetown is Looking Spiffy!

Our floors are shined up and teachers have been busy getting their classrooms ready for a new school year.  I’m excited to tell you that we also have nine NEW pieces of student artwork that have been added to our permanent collection!  Our wonderful Mr. Rob has installed the pieces throughout our building – take a few minutes when you are visiting Georgetown and see if you can locate them!

Hint:  one of the largest pieces we’ve ever had framed, by Cotey S., is hanging in the cafeteria – you will be amazed at Cotey’s skill in creating a work of art in the style of Georgia O’Keeffe.  (See more about our Georgia Project here.)

Here are the rest of the newly framed pieces (sorry about the glare from the lighting – when you see the pieces in person, I promise they look FAB.)

HUGE thanks to our amazing Georgetown PTC for funding our Permanent Collection at Georgetown – your support is truly appreciated!


Special Thanks To…

We are so blessed at Georgetown to have wonderful parent volunteers who give so much of their time to help us out in so many ways.  I’d like to give a special thanks to LISA VREDEVOOGD for hanging artwork in the hallways for me this year – you are amazing!  I love seeing the students’ artwork in the halls – and the kids do too – they always look for their piece when new art goes up!

Best Pencil Sharpeners….EVER

Guess what showed up on my doorstep over the weekend?  (Besides a couple of feet of snow!)

Three of the BEST pencil sharpeners ever, compliments of the Georgetown PTC and their Christmas gift to every teacher – an Amazon Gift Card!

The Carl Angel 5 Sharpener is the most wonderful manual sharpener….and the Carl people are NOT paying me to say that!  I was so happy to receive them that I ran around the house sharpening every pencil I could find.  Just look at those beautiful sharp pencil points!  Can’t wait to put the three Carls to use in the art room.

Hugs to our awesome PTC…muuwah!  Love you!
