December 2020 Newsletter

Happy Holidays, MAE families!

We have have three weeks between Thanksgiving and our December holiday break. Our goal is to use the excitement and wonder of this season to develop as many academic skills as possible. Even though we will not be able to allow parents in for our holiday celebrations, please know that we will be celebrating with our students. We have some great art experiences and lessons planned that will allow the students to connect to the curriculum and create special memories at school.

Thank you for your support at home in both our academic expectations and our health and safety guidelines this year. It has been a wonderful semester in so many ways, and we are grateful to have our students with us for in-person instruction at school. We wish you and yours a healthy, safe, and joyous holiday season.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
