Big thanks to Karlyn and Carter’s family for helping out with snack this week! We are grateful for your support in helping us keep bellies full and minds engaged.
We had such an amazing week with all of our STEM activities and assemblies! We learned a lot and had some fun while doing it; which is a win/win! Well done to our students that brought in their projects and presented on scientists, the scientific method and the laws of motion. We saw some pretty amazing stuff!
This coming week:

Our 8th annual Gala is coming up, it’s one of the biggest fundraising nights of the year. Tickets can be purchased at this site: https://squareup.com/store/mapa-9/
We will be collecting items for a themed basket, anything you can donate to help out is appreciated. These baskets are assembled and then taken to the event where they are auctioned off. All the money goes back to the school so it’s important to get as much donated as we can. Our theme for our class basket is: fun and games. We are looking for things a family can do for game night that would fit in a basket. Please get in touch with April or I, if you have any questions.
As we move into a steady routine with getting works done during specific times of the day and making sure we are on task, you may see somethings come home or notice more communication from us as we strive to help every student reach their full potential. If there is any advice you can offer or a system that works better for your child we would love to hear from you. We all have the same common goal for our students, which is to see them succeed. Thanks for your continued support.
