News & Notes from Mrs. Kapuchuck

Dear Families,

I hope your family was able to enjoy the snow last week! It is hard to believe that we had snow last week when temperatures today are above 60. This is the final week of both the second nine weeks and the first semester. Please note that Thursday and Friday of this week are early dismissal days for students. Students will dismiss at 1 pm both days! If your child will have a change in transportation due to the early dismissals, please notify the office as soon as possible. Please also note that Monday, January 20th will be a teacher workday, with no school for students.

The PTO will soon be sending out a sign up for donations for the parent/teacher conference staff dinner. Stay tuned for that information!

The PTO will NOT meet this week! The next PTO meeting will be on Monday, February 10th at 5:30 pm. All parents are welcome and invited to attend! At the February meeting, we will be planning for the first-ever MVES PTO Color Run! The date has been set for Saturday, April 18th. This will be a community event and is open to anyone wanting to run/walk. Please spread the word to family and friends who love to participate in running events! Click here for the December PTO minutes. Please disregard the January meeting date at the bottom.

Thanks to our Eagles Encourage program, we have been able to provide many coats and warm weather items to our students who have needed them. We have also been able to provide shoes to students in need through a partnership with Rack Room Shoes. Currently, we have many self-care items available for our students and families. These include toothbrushes, toothpaste, aluminum-free deodorant, body wash, combs, etc. Please contact Ms. Kapuchuck if you are in need of these items for your child/family and they will be sent home or picked up from school.

I hope all of you have a great week!
