January Newsletter

Happy New Year, MAE! It’s resolution time!! Here at MAE we know that the time we invest in our students is never a waste. The lessons we provide and the interactions we create for them help them become the people they were born to be. Because of this, we resolve to use 2020 to pour as much as we can into each child at our school. We resolve to show them our HEART in all that we teach, in all that we say, and in all that we do. Our students deserve our very best and that is what we resolve to give to them. As we enter the 3rd 9 weeks, please continue all of your effective routines and reading and homework routines at home. Report cards will be issued January 9th, and we will be setting up at-risk conferences the last two weeks of January. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s performance, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at any point in this 9 weeks. Once again, Happy New Year. Melissa Philley
