Hello Mountain Lions!!!
Is it just me, or does time seem to be passing faster and faster? This is the last week in February and I feel like the first couple of months of 2015 have absolutely flown by! Parent Teacher Conferences are just around the corner, and we hope that you have had a chance to sign up for an appointment. If you have not yet scheduled a time to meet with your child’s teacher, there are sign up sheets outside of our main office. We will keep those available until the end of the week, so if you haven’t scheduled your appointment yet, make sure to stop in and sign up soon!
Speaking of Parent Teacher Conferences… We have been so fortunate in the past to have a book fair during conferences. While so many of us take the opportunity to find a fun new book for our students, we often forget that it is made possible because of parent volunteers who donate their time to make sure that Majestic continues to have great opportunities for our students. Unfortunately, our PTA does not have the volunteer base to keep up with all of the activities that they would like to offer, so… It’s time to add some names to the list of volunteers! We are looking for moms, dads, grandparents, friends, and neighbors to help us out! As long as they are willing to donate their time and energy to do great things for kids, we’ll take them! If you know of someone who is interested in volunteering, please contact the office and we will make sure the PTA gets in touch with YOU!
Thanks again for all you do to support our school!
This week’s PRIDE value is: INDEPENDENT
Our Mountain Lion Pledge says, “I am Independent: I motivate myself to do great things, and accept the consequences of my actions.”
We are committed to helping our students be the best that they can be. Part of that commitment is teaching students to take responsibility for their own actions and to be aware of the choices that they make. It’s exciting when we see students who are doing great things. But let’s face it… we all make mistakes. Even when kids make bad choices, we should praise them when the own up to their mistakes and work to make the situation better in the future.
This week, I challenge you to share an experience with your child about a time when you didn’t make the best choice, but you learned something valuable from the experience. It’s important for kids to hear how their parents have overcome challenges and learned to make better choices in the future.
This morning at Monday Meeting, we had a couple special visitors from the Jordan Credit Union here to award one of our AWESOME teachers. Mrs. Smith, our fourth grade teacher, won an award that came with a check for $100! Way to go Mrs. Smith… We are so lucky to have you!
