From the Principal

Dear Mohawk Families,


I hope you enjoyed your winter break. March is full of activities and spring is right around the corner! The best part about March is that it is Reading Month. This year's theme is "Paws for Books". "Come, Stay, and Read a Great Tale!". We have a lot planned so be sure to check out the reading month calendar below.


Our annual book fair will be the week of March 14th-18th. More information to follow.


Conferences will be held virtually on Wed., March 23rd and Thurs., March 24th by teacher request. Teachers will contact you if they would like to meet.



Educationally yours,


Ms. Andrea Verellen

Principal

Parking Lot Problems

Cars are NOT allowed to park along the hill on the main drive between Mohawk & Iroquois. It is extremely difficult for busses to make the turn. See the parking lot map below. It is important we work together to eliminate parking lot issues!
