MAE Jag Blast, October 2022



Message from Principal:

Hello MAE Families,


We are enjoying a wonderful fall here at MAE! It is such a joy to see all of our parents and grandparents inside the building again. I appreciate all of your continued support and want to tell you thank you for all you do at home and for us here at MAE.


October and November are very important months for us. Our funding is determined by the attendance record for those 2 months. Missing any day of school has a negative effect on your student's learning. Missing any day of school in October and November also has a negative effect on the amount of funding we get to buy instructional resources and learning materials. Please have your child here each day and on time unless they are ill, have a doctor's appointment, or you have some type of family emergency.


Report Cards are coming home October 13. Students must master assessed skills at 80% mastery to receive an M (for mastery) on the report card. Please look through all the assessed skills for this 9 weeks and the skills that will be assessed later this year. Please notice the required reading levels on the front of the report card. Your child's teacher will be setting up conferences soon, but please reach out with any questions concerning your child's progress and what you can do at home to support your child.


Finally, I'd like to ask for your support of our Cheese Straw Fundraiser. We just completed Phase 1 of our playground renovations, but we still need funds for Phase 2. We want to provide our students with the very best playground equipment and all of the funds raised in this sale will go toward that.


Once again, thank you for all you do. Feel free to reach out to us with any questions, concerns, or ideas.


Sincerely,

Melissa Philley
