SPRING BREAK MARCH 13-21
SUNDAY NIGHT EMAIL UPDATE:
Weekly email update for March 10-21
I hope you had a wonderful weekend! It was so nice to have the warmer temperatures and to spend time outside. This week is a special one for students. We have the individual and group talent shows! Even if students do not participate, we all enjoy watching the performances. Thank you to Ms. Pfingsten for all the time donated to prepare for these! Thursday, the students will begin Spring Break. MTE staff will work Thursday on grading the district writing assessments in the morning and work on curriculum scope and sequence in the afternoon. Friday morning we will have state assessment training, social media and email training and then begin work on the third quarter grade cards. I will send a midweek update this week and then my next message will be on Sunday evening, March 23.
As always, please contact me if you have any comments or questions.
“It is a great day to be a bulldog!”
The Silver Bucket Award for the past week goes to Mrs. Drake’s first gradeclass for exemplifying the Blue Valley virtues in their specials classes.
We are in the midst of planning for the 2014-2015 school year. If you have a child in grades K-4 and are moving or your child is not returning to MTE next year, please let the office know as soon as possible. If you have a child in 5th grade who will not be attending Leawood Middle School, please let the office know as soon as possible. Thank you.
MAXnificent giving at MTE: Community Service Updates
COMMUNITY SERVICE LOG SHEETS DUE MARCH 31
All community service hours for 2013-2014 are due Monday, March 31. When you submit service hours, please utilize the form that is available in the MTE office as well as on the Mission Trail Web site under the “Community Service” tab. Log sheets may be submitted at any time by emailing them to email@example.com or by delivering them to the MTE office.
All students completing 10+ hours of service will be recognized at the community service assembly in May, and special recognition will be given to those students earning the President’s Volunteer Service Award for 50+ hours of service.
MARCH SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES
Please join us for an after-school community service activity in the art room on March 27 from 3:45-4:30 p.m. We are partnering with Kansas City Hospice to provide a bit of cheer to their patients and families. Come “dressed for mess” because we will be decorating plant stakes and potting pansies for each of the patient rooms.
Important: Due to the nature of this activity, a parent must be present with their own child(ren) in order to assist with the project. Also, we must cap this activity at 30 participants–no exceptions. If you’d like to attend, please sign up quickly … spots likely will fill fast.
To sign up, go to:
In town during Spring Break? Here’s a fun idea for you! The Ceramic Café in Ranchmart Shopping Center (95th and Mission Rd.) partners with Kansas City Hospice, too. Visit their studio to create a special mug for use at the hospice. You purchase and decorate the mug, and they deliver it! Mug prices are approximately $12, and the painting fee is waived.
