We are Georgetown PROUD!

Growth Mindset
We are working on having growth mindsets here at Georgetown. So what is a growth mindset? We use to think that our intelligence was fixed - meaning we were either smart or we weren’t. Scientists have proven again and again, that simply is not true. Our brain acts like a muscle - the more we use it, the stronger (and smarter) our brain becomes. Read next week for the characteristics of a fixed mindset.

Read for Great Prizes
We have THREE great reading incentive programs that you can participate in this year:
Six Flags (Great America) Six Hour Reading Program
Ozzie Reading Club with the Kane County Cougars
Books are Fun with Magic Waters Waterpark.

Your submission qualifies for all three programs. Forms are due January 26th

If you son/daughter is in Chorus, he/she can earn a free ticket for the Kane County Cougars through the Ozzie Reading Club that can be redeemed at the Cougars Georgetown Night on Monday, May 7th, 2018. The Chorus will be singing the National Anthem before the game. The form and the reading needs to be completed to earn a free ticket and meal coupon.

Attend Engage 204
You are invited to attend Engage 204, Indian Prairie School District's new community engagement program on November 14 from 7 to 9 pm at Still Middle School, 787 Meadowridge Drive, Aurora.

The Engage 204 sessions will explore different aspects of the district, including, enrollment, district finances, and other key issues involved in maintaining a successful educational experience for students.
