Hello Mountain Lions!!!
It’s hard to believe that we are already halfway through May! That means the end of our traditional school year is going to be here before you know it. The good news is… We are offering Mountain Lion Academy Summer Sessions! Today in Monday Meeting, I shared some of our plans for Mountain Lion Academy, and students seemed pretty excited to participate… especially when I told them about the enrichment portion that will take place each afternoon. I strongly encourage each of you to look into this incredible opportunity for your students. Information was sent home last week and we will be available to answer any questions you have at our Family Literacy Night this Thursday. (I’m also attaching the letter to this email.)
I also want to invite you all to attend our end of year Dance Festival. This has become a family tradition here at Majestic Elementary, and we would love to have all of our families here to enjoy a fun celebration of the work that we have done all year, and watch all of our students perform their dances for the people who love them most! The Dance Festival this year will start at 9:00 in the morning on the last day of school. (Friday, June 5th)
Last, but certainly not least, I can’t finish this email without celebrating the incredible efforts of our students the last couple weeks. As I’m sure you are aware, we have been participating in our state’s end of year assessment, SAGE. It has been so fun to hear our students talk about their successes as they receive their scores. I’ve even had students come up to me at lunch and say, “Guess what? I increased two levels on SAGE this year!” What a tribute to the hard work and dedication of both our awesome students, and our AMAZING teachers who have worked tirelessly to help our kids prepare to do their best on these tests. Way to go!!!
Thank you all for supporting our Mountain Lions… We couldn’t do it without you!
This week’s PRIDE value is: _____________
Wow… I wish you could all hear what I get to hear every Monday when we recite the Mountain Lion Pledge. It’s so fun to see our students learn about these values that will help them be productive throughout the rest of their lives.
