Mimi Farley Elementary News

from the desk of Allison Hamby, Principal

Dear Parents and Teams,

As we end the first semester of school, students are finishing up projects and celebrating their success for the middle of the year. I encourage you to contact your child's teacher if you have questions about grades, assignments, and anything that you may have questions about.

I am excited to end the semester with our Parent Involvement Meeting which took place on Wednesday, December 9th. If you were not able to attend or would like to share information about your child's learning or how you would like to be involved with your child at school, please feel free to send me an email. One of my favorite thoughts is, "I can't change things, if I don't know about it." I truly believe this and welcome any feedback that you would like to provide to Mimi Farley Elementary.

For students, we will be having classroom holiday celebrations before students leave for their two week break.

Pre-K and Kindergarten will be Thursday, December 17th from 2:00 to 3:15.

First and second grade will be Thursday, December 17th beginning at 2:00 and ending at 3:15.

Third grade will be Friday, December 18th beginning at 9:00 to 10:30

Fourth and Fifth grade will be celebrating with instructional activities related to the holidays.

Teachers will be sending out more specific information, but if you are interested in helping, please contact your child's teacher.

Early Release of Students

Friday, Dec. 18th, 11:45am

Dining Hall, Boys Ranch, TX

Friday, December 18th is an early release for students. We will be escorting elementary students to lunch at 11:15 and will begin releasing students to parents and teams at 11:45. We are releasing fifteen minutes before middle school and high school students to avoid crowded situations that occur in the dining hall on these days.

Students will be seated at their normal lunch location in the dining hall and will held at their table with their belongings until someone arrives to collect them. We prefer that this is parent or adult versus a sibling or house mate.
