SCHOOL RESUMES JANUARY 5


SUNDAY  EMAIL UPDATE:

Weekly email update for December 15-19

Good morning MTE families,

I hope you have enjoyed the warmer weather this weekend.  It is hard to believe this is the last week of school for first semester.  2015 is on the way! 

We are excited to offer the children a chance to bring some change and contribute to the playground this week.  We will have donation jars available each day. There is more information in the later part of the update.  It is a chance for each child to feel as if they play a part of making our new playground happen, even if they just bring a few pennies!  Thank you to Sara McQueary for her time commitment, organization and leadership with raising the funds to supplement the district’s upgrades.  It is going to be a wonderful place for children and families! Our opportunity to contribute will conclude this week, so if you plan on making a donation please do so by this Friday.

As always, if you have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact me. 

“It is a great day to be a bulldog!”

Debbie Bond
