In March, the McAuliffe PTC arranged the Food & Fund Drive to collect food and donations for Hastings Family Service. The McAuliffe students raised over $600 and 350 lbs of food that will help Hastings families in need.

MUSIC INFORMANCES

Every year the students at McAuliffe prepare a performance for family and friends as a part of their music class. Students in Grades K, 1, and 2 prepare an informance. An informance is a bit less formal than a concert. It demonstrates their performance abilities while also sharing parts of the music curriculum. Informances are held in the music room.

The schedule is as follows:


Thursday, April 25:

11:10-11:35: Mrs. Whitehill

11:35-12:05: Ms. Ellson

Weather Warning Terms

The National Weather Service uses the words, "watch" and "warning" to alert you to potentially dangerous weather.


Watch - Be Alert!

A watch means weather conditions are favorable for dangerous weather to occur. In other words, a "watch" means watch out for what the weather could do, and be ready to act accordingly.


Warnings - Act Now!

A warning means the weather event is imminent or occurring somewhere in the defined warning area and that people need to take shelter as soon as possible.

BOX TOP TUESDAY

We have collected over 10,000 Box Tops this school year! Please help us reach our goal of 15,000 by sending in Box Tops on Tuesday, April 16th. When clipping Box Tops please keep in mind to include the expiration date and three letter code in the upper left hand corner.
