Teaching for Learning for All!
The Book Fair was a HUGE success! We earned over $3,000 for the school and over 2,500 scholastic points to purchase new books for the library. We had 36 students win raffle posters and book bag giveaways. It was wonderful to see our Moraine families selecting books together and supporting their love of reading. Thank you Moraine Families!

Moraine Beautification - Adopt-A-Pot
Moraine has six planters in front of the school and one can be yours for the summer!
Here's how Adopt-A-Pot works:
For a donation of $20, you will be funding one of the planters AND you get to take a beautiful pot home for the summer. Your pot/s will be available for you to pick up at the last day of school for you to water and care for over the summer, returning them right before school starts so our school looks beautiful on the first day!
Thank you for keeping our school beautiful!

Student Learning Profile Input Form
On occasion, there may be some specific factors you would like the team to consider when making recommendations for placement next year. In the event that you are interested in providing additional input for your child, please email Mr. Reimann and he'll get send you the form directly! His email is email@example.com .
Our staff, in partnership with our families, adapt to create flexible, inclusive environments in all classrooms to enhance the success of every child. Whether a parent chooses to complete the Student Learning Profile form, or not, will have no effect on the care given to each child’s placement. The final decision on all placements rests with the principal, after due consideration of team recommendations and parent information regarding their child’s learning needs.
Finally, it is important to note that input forms requesting specific teachers will not be considered. Please submit the form by May 19, 2023 to ensure that each request can be given the timely due diligence it deserves.
Please consult your child’s current teacher prior to filling out this form to get the most up to date information regarding their learning profile.

Parent Coffee Talks
The Parent Lighthouse Team is planning to host a “Parent Coffee Talk” once a month. Every month we will meet to discuss each of the “7 Habits of Highly Effective Families”. You do not need to have attended the parent workshop in October to join us for these informal “Parent Coffee Talks”.
The schedule is as follows:
May 18 – Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw
These meetings will take place in Room 311 at Old Village School (405 Main Street in Northville) from 9:00-10:30 AM (except on January 19). Parking is behind Old Village School next to the library. Light refreshments are provided. Please bring something to drink and join us as we have fun discussing how to successfully (and at times unsuccessfully) implement the 7 Habits at home.
Please contact either one of us with questions:
Mindy Eichenberg (email@example.com) or
Jami Knapp (firstname.lastname@example.org).
