LETTER FROM THE PRINCIPAL

LETTER FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Thanks so much for your patience while we go through this latest Covid wave. I also appreciate the teachers’ flexibility in gathering independent study contracts and adjusting lesson plans for constant changing attendance. I’m hoping cases start dropping soon.
TWIN DAY FRIDAY 1/21/22
The Student Council is sponsoring another Spirit Day on Friday 1/21. The theme is Twin Day where students dress up like one another. It is not limited to just one person and the twin. Groups of 3 or more can dress alike. I’m looking for twins as well. I’m inviting any student or staff member to be my twin. I’ll be wearing a pair of blue jeans a white shirt and a tie. (although I’ll be wearing a tie, it can be optional for others). This can be an option for students who don’t want to find another twin, but would like to participate in the spirit day.
Hey fabulous SM families! We hope you all had a wonderful winter break! We have not forgotten and wanted to update you with dates we have tentatively set for the EOS school wide rewards. Music Assembly was already received on 12/17/21. Sno-cone day – date to be determined. Principal dress up day is on 2/9/22 and he will be dressed up as Elmo. Color fun run is on 4/22/22. BMX stunt bike show is on 5/26/22. Individual rewards – notices will be sent home with students with information on how to redeem these. After school pizza party is on 2/23/22. Drive in movie night is on 3/4/22. Bingo night is moved to 3/11/22. Our next General PTO meeting is on 1/26/22 at 6:00pm via zoom.

A ‘NOTE’ FROM THE MUSIC TEACHER
Make Music, Eat Polenta! Save the date for our Polenta Feed fundraiser on Saturday, March 12! We are also looking for volunteers as well as donations for our raffle and silent auction for this event. Do you have connections to a business that can donate? Can you lend a hand at the event? Please let us know if you can help by emailing Shannon or Jason at firstname.lastname@example.org. Help us keep music education alive in the Mark West School District!
Please do not drop off your child before 7:55 as we do not have supervision until then. Some students are arriving as early as 7:45. Rainy mornings are even more challenging and drop offs closer to 8:30 help. Gathering all students in the MPR in the morning before school starts is something I’d like to avoid as much as possible. Thanks for your cooperation.

ACROSTIC POEMs FROM THE 5TH GRADERS
Just the beginning of the year
Always fun on Christmas
Not enough time on winter break
Using and learning new stuff
All back in school
Raining a lot
Just getting started of the ok year
All the rain and fun
No more covid hopefully
Using more things
Not enough sun
Until the spring.
All in school,
Ready for the summer,
Year 2022 is hopefully going to be great!
Just started the new year
Almost my birthday
Not enough time on winter break or weekends
All in school
Year 2022 is going to be a blast
Just in the beginning of the year
All there is, is Corona
Not everyone wears a mask though
Under our masks we are smiling though
And it doesn’t show sometimes
Rain is all we have sadly
You should get vaccinated too!
