Mansfield City School & An International Spanish Academy
August 12, 2019
Mensaje del Director
Last month's newsletter talked about how the weather has shifted to blue and sunny instead of gray and rainy. It sure is nice to see that the beautiful weather pattern has continued into August. July's newsletter also mentioned some of the teacher changes, etc. at school.
We have some new staff members to welcome. Our International Visiting Teachers from Spain have arrived and are currently with host families until their own rentals are available. More information about the new International teachers can be found in another section. We're also are welcoming Ms. Jenny King. Ms. King will be our student-support specialist for English and Spanish language arts support as well as working with our students who primarily speak a language other than English at home.
MSI participated in the Mansfield Children's Festival. We saw double the visitors from last year and wouldn't have been able to serve the community that day without the help from the Kern Family. Muchisimas Gracias, Isabella, Abby and Alex!
If you have reason to visit MSI right now, you'll see what a fantastic job the custodians, Mr. Fisher and Mr. Windbigler, did getting the building ready for a new school year. The hall ways still have that "new school' smell. Ms. Wendling has been very busy updating records and helping orientate the new staff. In addition, you'll see quite a few teachers getting their classrooms ready for the 2019-2020 school year and reviewing new curriculum.
Finally, we've had our first meetings with our new superintendent, Coach Stan Jefferson. He has some very electrifying proposals and plans to grow our students' success. We're very excited to have his support and want him to know that he has ours.
Go Tygers! ¡Adelante al éxito!
Meet Our New Visiting Teachers
Thank you host families, who have opened their homes and to the families who have already introduced themselves by inviting them over and driving them around. Now that they all have found rental homes, they may need some furniture and furnishings. MSI has some supplies stored at the district warehouse, but we don't have enough. Let's continue demonstrating what a wonderful school community we are!

Smartphones and Smart Watches
Just a quick reminder that student phones should be off and in school bags or lockers during the school day. Parents and students can communicate with each other through the office phone.
Cultural Assistant Host Family
In order to have a Cultural Assistant from Spain, we need to provide a host family from October to May. We've had families host them in the past, so please contact the office if you need more information to help you decide.
