May 2022 "Final Stop" Jag Blast
Message from Principal:
It is hard to believe that May is already here. We have had a wonderful year, and we are going to do all we can to make this last month a special one for our students! Thank you for ensuring your child has a good day at school by checking your child's folder each night, keeping an appropriate bedtime at home, and arriving on time. If you have any questions or concerns about your child's performance or about any of our school events in May, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
This last month of school is sure to fly by, and I will treasure each day with our students. This is especially true for our 2nd graders. Please know that your child and your family will always be a part of the MAE family...once an MAE Jag, always an MAE Jag!

From our PTO PRESIDENTS
Maren and I want to thank all of YOU, the parents, for your generous donations toward our appreciation days. We raised nearly $2,000 for monetary gifts to all teachers and staff, including Café workers. The amazing support and care from our parents is why we do what we do. It has been an honor to work with and on behalf of all of you this year. Thank you again and have a wonderful Summer!
