Holiday Lunches

Mulberry's 8th annual holiday luncheon is on Monday, December 8th for families of students in grades kindergarten, first and fourth, and on Tuesday, December 9th for second, third and fifth graders as well as fourth grade student council members. Classes will follow their regular lunch schedules on their designated days. Your child's class holiday lunch schedule is available below.

Adult lunches will be available for $3.00, and we hope you will join us for the festivities!

Mulberry Family Tradition

Mulberry's 12ft Holiday Tree is on display in the atrium, and we would love to continue or tradition of decorating the tree with ornaments from every Mulberry family. If your family is new to Mulberry or if you did not send in an ornament last year, we invite you to send in an ornament representing your family's heritage and traditions to the front office. Be sure to include your family name on the ornament. As our students grow and move on to other schools they will leave a special remembrance at Mulberry.

Holiday Gram Sales

Send some holiday cheer to your children, their friends, and teachers with Mulberry Holiday Grams!

The fifth grade committee will once again be selling Holiday grams during Holiday Hotcakes and holiday lunches, as well as each morning before school, December 8-17.

Grams are just $1 each with a special message and holiday treat!

5th Grade Promotion Ceremony

5th grade parents, it’s hard to believe that half of the school year is gone. The Promotion Ceremony will be here before we know it. An integral part of the ceremony is the Slide Show. The slide show will be played during the Reception and is always a big hit. The children love seeing their pictures on the big screen.


We are asking that you submit 3 photos (baby, preschool age, and current) that you feel depicts your 5th grader’s personality. Please submit photos by December 20, 2014.


You can submit the photos two different ways:

1) Email: 5thgdslideshow@gmail.com. Please include your child’s name & Teacher in the email.


2) Send photos in an envelope clearly marked “Slide Show pictures” for your child to turn in. Please label all photos that you want returned, with your child’s name, Teacher, and a contact phone# or email.


Please also submit any photos of your child, throughout the years, at Mulberry events (clubs, Bingo Night, Movie Night, Field Day, lunch with friends, etc.). We would love to include these photos in the Slide Show as well. What an amazing opportunity to reminisce and reflect on how our “babies” have blossomed into the young people that they are today.

Lost and Found

We have a lot of jackets, hats, etc. that we have accumulated since the beginning of the school year. Please stop by the front office and look for your child's lost belongings. Any items that are not picked up by the end of the day on December 19th will be donated to a local charity.

Georgia Parent Survey

The Georgia Department of Education Department is conducting a parent survey. This survey is available via the link below, and we encourage you to take a few minutes to provide your feedback about the climate of Mulberry Elementary. Your responses are valuable to us as they will impact Mulberry’s Georgia School Climate Star Rating.

The survey link will remain open through February. Thank you for supporting our school!
