Dear Students & Parents:


Welcome to Georgetown Middle School.  I hope you are having a great summer and are excited about returning to school. I am looking forward to working with the faculty, parents and students that make up the community of Georgetown.


We are planning two Open Houses to begin the 2015-2016 school year.  Our sixth grade open house will be held on Thursday, September 3rd at 5:00 P.M.  This Open House will give our incoming 6th graders a chance to meet their teachers and become more familiar with Georgetown Middle before the first day of school.  Our second open house will also be held on Thursday, September 3rd at 7:00 P.M.  This Open House will be for seventh and eighth grade students only.


The first day of school will be Tuesday, September 8, 2015.  The school day at Georgetown Middle School runs from 7:45 A.M.- 2:50 P.M.  Students will be allowed to enter the building at 7:45 A.M. and attendance will be taken at 7:50 A.M.  If your child rides the bus, the bus driver will call you the week before school starts to give the exact time and pick up location. 


On the first day of school, all 6th graders will report to the auditorium.  Seventh and eighth graders will report directly to their homeroom teacher’s classroom.  Students’ homeroom teacher and their room number will be located on the team letter.  All of the teachers are looking forward to your return, and they have expressed their excitement about meeting you on the first day of school. 


The administrative team will be meeting with all students during the first week of school to present our expectations for a successful year at Georgetown Middle School.  We will be reviewing the Board of Education policies on discipline, dress code and cell phones.  You can access these policies on the district website at  You can also access the school’s website at for more information and important dates.


All students are reminded to purchase a soft backpack which fits into the locker.  Please do not purchase backpacks with wheels and/or hard sides as they will not fit in the lockers.  Students will not be permitted to carry backpacks of any type during the school day.  All jackets and backpacks will be placed in the locker at the beginning of the day and remain there until dismissal.


Enjoy the rest of your summer! We are all looking forward to seeing you on September 8th.



Michael Williams
