Class Photos Next Week

Next Wednesday, February 20 we will be having class photos.  This photo will be in the yearbook and is not available for separate purchase.

Please make sure your child is in dress code for these photos.





Valentine’s Exchange

This Thursday is Valentine’s Day.  Our class will be participating in a small Valentine exchange before lunch, February 14.  A list of all students in our class was sent home last week.  Participating in the exchange is completely optional, but if your child brings a Valentine for one classmate, they must bring one for everyone in the class.  When making or purchasing Valentines, I encourage you to follow our school wellness policy.

If your child would like to make a box, bag or some other type of container to collect their Valentines, please plan on making this at home.

As a reminder, this Wednesday, Thursday and Friday is early release for student led conferences.  School will let out at 1:00 pm on each of these days.


Thank you!

Thank you to those of you who were able to donate tissues to our classroom!  The students appreciate having something soft to use on their noses.

Thank you for supporting last week’s fun run!  I hear we raised nearly $12,000 for field experiences!  That number is phenomenal and we couldn’t have done it without your support.

Don’t forget – Next week is student led parent conferences.  Plan for early release at 1:00pm all three days of conferences – Wednesday, February 13-Friday, February 15.

Please sign up for a time that works for you AND your child.   They will be showing you the portfolio they have put together which will highlight the things they have been working on in class.  As stated in the weekly MMA newsletter, there will be no progress reports issued during February conferences.  Instead, your child’s progress toward mastery of key standards will be shown with work they have personally selected.

You can sign up for a conference time at this link.

Annual Chili Cook Off

Hey Folks!  MMA’s annual Chili Cook Off is upon us.  Come join the fun Tuesday, January 29 from 5:30-7:00.

Bring your favorite pot of Chili and enter to win a fabulous prize, or simply come have dinner with friends and family all while supporting field experiences for our school.

Please sign up to bring a pot of chili or cornbread at this link.  If you bring a pot of chili, please also bring a serving utensil and an extension cord to plug in your crock pot.

This is a perfect opportunity for your 6th grade student, or parents, to complete volunteer hours.
