Millville Elementary School
A GREAT PLACE TO LEARN
Friday, April 12, 2019
Our lunch menu for today is grilled cheese sandwiches, salad bar and fruit.
We had a terrific turn out at Open House last night and we saw some fantastic science fair projects. Congratulations to all of the gold medal winners and to all that learned something they didn’t know before. All classes will have a chance to visit the science fair today; projects can go home after school or on Monday.
Baseball has a game today at 3:30; baseball players may be excused at 2:30 to ready for the game.
Today is the last day of the Scholastic Book Fair.
Today is also Spirit Day so all students wearing their spring/easter wear or blue and gold will get a spirit ticket.
Drama Club has rehearsal at lunch today for Scene 3 for the following characters: Cheshire Cats, Doorknob, Small Alice, Tall Alice, Alice, Dodo Bird and Sea Creatures.
Attendance matters; there are just 33 days of school left in the school year, make each day count.
6-8 grade students who have asked to change electives, there is a form outside my office where you can make the request. I am making no promises but it doesn’t hurt to ask.
And I’d like to announce our Student of the Month for the month of March. We again had an impressive group of students selected as Student of the Month but this student was selected as she is noted for being a good friend, very helpful to the teacher and her classmates, a great student and conscientious about her work; she has a kind heart and the sweetest smile. I’m proud to announce our Student of the Month for March is in Mrs. Schroeder’s class and it is Ali Mae Vaughn. Ali Mae will receive a month’s worth of hot chocolate or popsicles, four homework passes, and acknowledgement in the newsletter, on the website, at the school board meeting, on the Student of the Month board and in announcements. Congratulations, Ali Mae!
Happy birthday to Haylee Higgins tomorrow, Harper Wilson on Sunday, Derek Rudd on Monday, Macey Acosta next Wednesday, Collin Hattenhauer next Thursday, Vivian Dragone next Friday and Shane Pimentel a next Saturday.
Have a great spring break!
February’s Storm & the End of the School Year
The waiver has been submitted for the three days school was closed due to the storm in February. Now we wait!
After meeting with the school board last week, the plan agreed upon is to apply for three days waived, which we have, but expect to receive two days waived. This would mean our last day of school could be Thursday, June 6 not Wednesday, June 5.
To play it safe we are asking all families to plan on your child(ren) attending school through Thursday, June 6, including 8th graders. Both June 5 and June 6 will be minimum days and will be filled with fun “end of year” events. Even though these days will be filled with end of year fun, they are still attendance days and all students, TK-8, are expected to attend. Attendance matters through the last day of school, which could very well be Thursday, June 6.
We will keep you informed as any new information is received regarding the waiver.
Thank you! -Mindy DeSantis
