Last Call for Student Materials Pickup

Student materials will be distributed this Wednesday, May 20 from 3pm to 5pm.

Please also return any library books your student may have taken home. We will be collecting these on Wednesday.

You may also return student work that has been completed.

The Mahanay staff will be practicing social distancing and wearing masks and gloves, and we ask that families remain in their vehicles. You will drive up to the gym side of the school and will tell the staff your child's/children's name(s), and we will bring a bag of their belongings to your vehicle. Their bags will include all of the belongings in their desks and any materials paid for such as STAAR shirts and pictures.

4th Grade Clap Out

A tradition for our 4th graders here at Mahanay is for them to walk the halls and have the staff and students clap them out of the building for one last time before they start their summer vacation.

We plan to do something similar this year.

Wednesday at 5pm, we will do a drive through clap out. The Mahanay staff will be lined up outside of the building with signs ready to clap out our 4th graders. You may line up in the car rider line along the side of the school. Once the car parade begins, we will lead you through the bus lanes and clap out your 4th graders as they head into the summer break. For safety purposes, we ask that everyone remain in their cars.

Please contact your 4th-grade teachers if you have any further questions.
