Mac El Weekly News

Message from the Principal - LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!

Have a great summer!

What a great end to the school year...talent show, indoor field day, and MAC 500! Huge thank you to all of the staff and volunteers that made indoor field day such a success! Everyone was so excited and my favorite comment..."Thanks for letting us run in the hall, we never get to do that!" Hope you all have a fun and relaxing summer and we can't wait to see everyone in the fall! Best wishes to our 5th-grade students moving across the parking lot to Middle School!

Missing Library Books

Please have your child check at home and in their bags for missing library books. If you find a library book, please return it to the school. It is important to keep books available for all students. If books are not returned, there will be a replacement charge.

Guidance Update

Some students are having a difficult time regulating themselves during this unstructured time. I have met individually with several students this week who just “needed a break." I have also met with some students to give encouraging advice to get them through their time at home this summer as well as their adventure into middle school.

From the Nurse

ATTENTION 5TH GRADE PARENTS: Immunizations are required for 6th grade.

Now is a good time to schedule these with your doctor or the health department.

Your doctor and or the health department will be able to view CHIRP and see what your child needs. This normally includes a Tdap, and Meningitis vaccine, HPV is optional.

(For those parents who have already done this, your child does not require anything else at this time.)
