Greetings and Happy New Year Mize Families!

I hope you all had a fabulous holiday and were able to spend some quality time with family and friends! It was wonderful to see the smiles on students’ faces and hear the halls buzzing with happy voices this morning. We are all ready to embark upon the New Year and another new semester!

We have a lot going on in the month of January. Our third-grade students will be performing their music program next Thursday, January 16th, at 6:30 PM, and our PTO will be hosting our family BINGO night on January 31st. We will be providing more details in the weeks to come.

Goals are always a focus here at Mize. One of our building goals, this year, is to have our students build community connections and foster positive relationships with other staff member and students within the building. We realize that many students build connections with their teacher and classmates, but wanted to provide an opportunity for each of our students to build relationships with other staff members, students, and the community, as well.

As a result, right before our break, we held our first Flight Family gathering. This opportunity allowed students to move to another classroom to work on a group lesson and project with another teacher and students from various grade levels. This activity also focused on a community connection where we created a project that was delivered to local nursing homes. We plan to continue our Flight Families, once a quarter, and will provide information and details following each meeting. We are excited about this adventure and all that the new year has in store for our precious Mize Hawks!

I hope you all have a fabulous week!
