December 2021 " Halfway There " Jag Blast


Message from Principal:


Happy Holidays, MAE!

We have so many wonderful festivities planned for December including our rewards from our successful Cheese Straw sale, the Holidays Around the World unit, our 1st grade performance, the AR reward event for 1st and 2nd graders, and Breakfast with Santa. It is going to be a fun season, and we plan to use the excitement of the holidays to motivate and excite students about learning.

Our 2nd 9 weeks of instruction concludes in December, so learning and instruction is still a focus. Please arrive on time each day, be sure your child is prepared and has had a good night’s sleep, and continue to read and complete practice assignments at home.

Our Holiday break begins at 11:30 on Friday, December 17. I want to wish everyone a joyous holiday season and a safe holiday break. Classes will resume on Wednesday, January 5. Report cards will be sent home the following week on Thursday, January 13.

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

Sincerely,

Melissa Philley, Principal

All families that turned in their forms, can kick off the holiday season at this fun come and go event sponsored by our very own MAE PTO. Children can enjoy their time as they work on a craft, listen to special guest readers and even have the opportunity to write a letter to Santa. And let's not forget, visiting with Santa himself!

NEXT STOP: MAE LIBRARY - VOLUNTEERS NEEDED - DECEMBER 13TH - 15TH!


A BIG THANK YOU to all the folks who helped Ms. Bracy shelve books last month!!! Our library needs EXTRA HELP 12/13-12/15. We need to get the books back on the shelves in time for the A/R celebration on the 16th!


Thankfully, our children are reading loads of books every day. However, we can't get them back on the shelves fast enough! What a great problem to have, right?
