Maire Newsletter March 11th edition
Dear Maire Families,
Our spring conferences are just around the corner. If you haven’t done so already, please be sure to sign up for a conference with your child’s homeroom teacher. Wednesday evening will be via zoom, while Thursday afternoon and evening will be in-person at Maire. Our support staff and specials teachers are often shared with other buildings, so if you are interested in meeting with them be sure to check their availability on PTC Wizard to set up a time to connect.
Conferences are a time to celebrate the successes of the year and continue to establish goals for the final few months of the year. I’m incredibly proud of the work our staff and students have done this year, despite the obstacles that got in their way with the pandemic. The partnership between parents, teachers, and students is the key to our success at Maire. Thanks for helping in that partnership to make well-rounded Maire Bears each and every year.
proud Principal of Maire

Students will be asked to wear "Sunday best", ie, no jeans or sweats. No heels for the girls as they can be a hazard on the risers. Choir students have chosen to wear black and white combinations. That afternoon students will have practice in the gym and will be reminded of all the details about the big night.
Students will get dropped off at their assigned class/grade level rooms by a parent (we will have signs to help you find the room). Each grade will perform a few songs and parents and family will love seeing their child have fun singing on stage. Choir will be our last performing group of the night. Once the show is over parents will pick up their child from the same room they were dropped off at. We anticipate about a 45 minute concert.
*As a reminder, masks are optional for students, staff, parents, and community members in our schools at this time.

Leader in Me Habit # 6 : Synergize
Working together is a goal that we have in school and in life. It's good to remember:
*I get along well with people and work well in groups
*I value the strengths of others, and allow myself to learn from them
*I know that by working together as a team we can get more done and come up with better solutions than we could alone
Character Word of the month : Cooperation
Cooperation is working together to achieve the same goal. This is a character trait that we practice every day, and it goes hand in hand with our Leader in Me Habit as well.
At Maire, we are better together!

Milk issues at lunchtime
We wanted families to know there is a potential issue getting milk for school lunches. We have been told that one big issue is they can't source the paper cartons. Due to this supply chain issue, there may be days that we are not able to serve milk. You might see juice, bottled water or milk at lunch as we deal with this issue.
