Cell phone and smart watch reminder!
Over the past year or so, we've had several cases of students using communication devices during school hours. They may be used outside school hours. Cell phones and smart watches are allowed at school, but may not be used to contact others, including parents. It is possible that you, or your child was unaware of this policy. If your child needs to contact you, they can come to the office, if you need to get a message to them, please call or email the office. I'm attaching the Mark West School District policy on personal devices for your reference. If you have any questions, please contact me.
"Students may bring personal technology, including computers, smart phones, network access devices, or other electronic signaling devices to school provided that such technology is used for instructional purposes. Students shall abide by the instructions provided by teachers and other school staff in the use of such personal technologies. Access to the Internet or other District communication systems from personal technology is limited to wireless access points on the school campuses or other access devices away from school. Access to the Internet or other District communication systems from personal technology is not available via hardwire connections."
Save the date! All music students in the 4th, 5th, and 6th grades will perform at our annual District Winter Concert on the evening of Thursday, February 23. Details about the concert will be shared in late January or early February.
One Last Call! The Mark West Education Foundation is looking for parent volunteers to join a committee to help plan a district-wide Karaoke Night! We would like the Karaoke Night to be both a fun community building event and a possible fundraiser for the music program, and we need people to help plan this event. Does anyone have connections for karaoke equipment, possible raffle items, etc.? Do you have ideas for activities at Karaoke Night? Please email Kara Kaufman at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to help! For those who have already contacted her, Mrs. Kaufman will send out an email to all potential volunteers soon to discuss next steps.
Speaking of volunteers...The Mark West Education Foundation is seeking new members to join our parent-run, non-profit organization dedicated to making music and arts education available to students in the Mark West District. Please email Kara Kaufman at email@example.com if you are interested in learning more about volunteering with the MWEF! The next MWEF meeting will be on Monday, February 6 at 6:00pm via Zoom.
