McAuliffe Messenger

November 28, 2022

Dear McAuliffe Families,

A huge thank you to all who came out for our Family Reading and Technology Night! A special thank you to the PTO, Mrs. Hobson, and the teachers who planned the activities as well as our guest ribbon cutters, Mr. Martelli, Mrs. DeMichael, and Mr. Augustyniak! A great time was had by all who attended.

We enjoyed meeting with you during parent-teacher conferences. We hope it was a positive experience for you. Remember that we value the home-school connection and welcome you to discuss your child's progress with us at any time.

We hope you enjoyed the Thanksgiving break! We were all so happy to see our students back at school today. This month we have some fun events planned! We will have our Scholastic Book Fair, PTO-sponsored Winter Workshop, and a choral performance! Our choral performance gives our chorus students an opportunity to perform at an in-school assembly for the student body. This event is open to parents of chorus students who are performing. We look forward to a December to Remember!
