LAST DAY OF SCHOOL FOR EARLY CHILDHOOD AND KINDERGARTEN STUDENTS
- - -
DISMISSAL AT 11:45 AM FOR 1ST-5TH GRADE STUDENTS
SUNDAY NIGHT EMAIL UPDATE:
Weekly email update for May 18-22
Good afternoon MTE families,
I hope you are enjoying this lovely afternoon. I find it almost impossible to believe that we are at the last week of school. It has been a wonderful journey of learning, and I am so grateful to be a part of it!
Thank you to all the Field Day volunteers and Mrs. Courtney for the flexibility and positive attitude displayed with moving the activities from outside to inside. Our morning session was held completely outside, and the afternoon session had to come inside after about 35 minutes. Weather is always hard to predict despite having multiple weather apps to monitor weather. Thanks again! I know the students enjoyed the day.
This week hosts a special event each day. Please check the calendar below for dates and times.
I do want to make everyone aware that on Wednesday afternoon, Mrs. Turner’s Retirement Reception will begin at 4 p.m. We are hosting the event in the front hall area and hope you plan to stop by the celebration. We will be setting the event up from 3-4 p.m. We respectfully request that families do not plan to wait inside at school, because we won’t be ready until 4. Please let me know if you have any questions. We do not want to create a hardship for anyone.
As always, if you have any questions, concerns or comments, please contact me.

School Supply Order Information K-5 for 2015-2016
Hello, Mission Trail Parents! It is already time to order your school supplies for the 2015-2016 school year. This year we are again using Schoolkidz for our school supplies, since they did such a great job for us last year. All orders will be placed online, and all school supply kits will be delivered to your home the week of Aug. 3. When ordering, please remember to select your child’s grade for next year. All kits already have the shipping charge included (per box) and there is no sales tax. So, if you’re ordering more than 1 kit, the cost of the kit will not change because the shipping has already been included for the weight of 1 box.
Again, the kits DO NOT include the ream of paper for each child, or the 2 assignment notebooks for grades 2-5. You can purchase the assignment notebooks in the office ($2 for both), and each child needs to bring in 1 ream of paper for the school.

Last Day to Order Supplies: June 14, 2015
Please let me know if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org . Thank you!
