Greetings Mize Families!

Friday was a great day as we held our annual Walk and Roll-A-Thon! It was wonderful to see so many parents join us for such a fun-filled, GROOVY day!

I wanted to express a BIG thank you for all of your support in helping make it a success! In addition, I would like to express my gratitude to our wonderful PTO who worked very hard to make this event fun and exciting for all of our students. With your help, we raised $35, 738! Wow! These funds will help bring new things to our students and staff, as well as our building. Your generosity and hard work are greatly appreciated by all! As a result of your generosity, PTO has organized prize parties throughout the week for our Mize Hawks.

This week is also Bully Free Week at Mize. Please see the schedule below regarding daily events to help our students share in the spirit. We also have our 4th grade music program on Thursday at 6:30 PM. Please feel free to join us, as our students showcase their musical talents.

Have a fabulous week, everyone!

Ms. Balthazor
