Week of 3/9-3/13

Hello Families!

I hope you are enjoying this extended, rainy weekend! This upcoming week is the start of the last trimester of the 2019-2020 year. It’s hard to believe this year is coming to an end, and I look forward to finishing up strong!

I also have some exciting news: The 6th Grade will be visiting the MAC on 3/27 to see the Pompeii Exhibit! I will be passing out permission slips next week. I will need 6 chaperones to join us on our trip as per the MAC Class Trip Protocol. If you would like to join us on Friday, March 27th please respond to this email letting me know that you are available!

Lastly, I want to open up requests for conferences on March 20th. If you would like to meet to discuss your child’s progress, email me to schedule a time. Also, please know that I am here to partner with you, so if you are unable to meet on the 20th but would still like a conference, let me know and we can schedule for a more convenient time. Report Cards will be coming home on March 16th.
