Notes from Principal Emily-March 4, 2021
Read Across America:
As a part of our honoring of Dr. Seuss’ birthday this week, we will be celebrating Read Across America on Friday (3/5) by allowing our students to dress up as their favorite book character.
Kindergarten Open House:
Kindergarten Registration will open on April 5. Students need to be 5 by August 1, 2021. On April 15, we will be hosting a Kindergarten Open House. The student and one parent can come and take a quick tour of the school and meet our staff. In order to help with social distancing we prefer if students with last names starting with A-M come some time between 5-6 and students with last names starting with N-Z come from 6-7.
Pre-School Registration is Now Open:
Weekend Snack Pack Bags:
Aramark will be sending home weekend snack bags with all students today. They will also be staying after school from 3:05-5 to hand out snack bags to our MSO students or anyone who has a child 18 years or younger that did not get one. If your child did get a bag, but you want to come by and pick up milks for the weekend you may!
Volleyball continues tomorrow for interested students in 4/5 grade. Macie McCarty will be coaching again. There will not be a culminating tournament this year as there has been in the past; however, the students will be able to practice their skills and have some fun playing volleyball after school. The camp will take place at NWMHS. Students will meet in our lobby after school and walk across the street with Coach McCarty. They can be picked up at the high school at 4:30. The dates are 3/1, 3/2, 3/5, 3/8, 3/9, 3/15, 3/16, and 3/17.
