Technology Grants for Georgetown!!!!

Recently, both Christine Brown and Mike Appleby were awarded Hearts and Minds Educational Technology Grants.  Valued at almost $5,000, the grants are designed to get real-world technology and experiences into the hands of our students.  With Mrs. Brown’s grant, she will add 7 mini iPads to her existing tablet bank.  Students will use these to shoot outdoor photography using the 10 rules of composition then upload them to Google for editing.  Mr. A.’s Crew will partner with Annie Brown’s sixth graders.  Student teams will learn how to write code for the new Micro:bit processors, track local weather using the Micro:climate kits and program Micro:bots to perform basic tasks.  We are very excited about these new opportunities for students!

Exciting News- What's in a Name??

Please Join Us for the Big Reveal of our New Tech Network Campus at our Open House on May 23rd at 6:30!

Georgetown Elementary applied for and was accepted as a New Tech Network School in April. As part of this transformation into a project-based learning STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics ) School we adopted a new name that expresses our connection with a nationally recognized, high performing school network, we are now called GT School of Innovation- A New Tech Network Campus.

This year Parents and students who participated in our GT School Survey suggested interest in a school where students had a science driven, project-based learning approach! Our motto “Imagine, Invent, Inspire” states our commitment to providing an enriched, engaging and rigorous curriculum as well as creating agency and responsibility in our student body through collaborative projects and presentations.

ECHO Learning management system, an online learning platform will allow parents to log in, each day and see with their own eyes how their learner is progressing toward standard. Students in all grades will have access to ALEKS (Math), Lexia (reading) and Spelling City (Our new spelling program). Additionally, students will be provided access to our new History/Social Science Adoption USA Studies Weekly.  

            And…don’t forget our wonderful offering of afterschool MakerSpace along with our new bi-monthly elective rotations on Fridays which will expose our 3-6 grade learners to even MORE arts and sciences such as: coding, music, classical art and more!

With the support of our school board and superintendent, Georgetown will take its place as the first New Tech Network School in El Dorado County, an elite recognition that we are proud to be a part of. If you are interested in joining our school community as we undertake this exciting new journey please contact Wendy Westsmith at 333- 8320 for more information.
