Mulberry's Holiday Tradition
Holiday Celebrations and Donations
We appreciate too the nearly 350 families that joined us for holiday lunches on Monday and Tuesday, which was prepared and served by Mrs. Trudel and our wonderful cafeteria staff.
The Mulberry Outreach Committee would like to thank you for the charitable donations of clothing and toys you sent in for our families in need. We truly appreciate your generosity towards our Mulberry students and their families during this holiday season.
Happy Holidays to all!
Georgia Parent Survey
The Georgia Department of Education Department is conducting a parent survey. This survey is available via the link below, and we encourage you to take a few minutes to provide your feedback about the climate of Mulberry Elementary. Your responses are valuable to us as they will impact Mulberry’s Georgia School Climate Star Rating.
The survey link will remain open through February. Thank you for supporting our school!
5th Grade Promotion Ceremony
5th grade parents, it’s hard to believe that half of the school year is gone. The Promotion Ceremony will be here before we know it. An integral part of the ceremony is the Slide Show. The slide show will be played during the Reception and is always a big hit. The children love seeing their pictures on the big screen.
We are asking that you submit 3 photos (baby, preschool age, and current) that you feel depicts your 5th grader’s personality. Please submit photos by December 20, 2014.
You can submit the photos two different ways:
1) Email: email@example.com. Please include your child’s name & Teacher in the email.
2) Send photos in an envelope clearly marked “Slide Show pictures” for your child to turn in. Please label all photos that you want returned, with your child’s name, Teacher, and a contact phone# or email.
Please also submit any photos of your child, throughout the years, at Mulberry events (clubs, Bingo Night, Movie Night, Field Day, lunch with friends, etc.). We would love to include these photos in the Slide Show as well. What an amazing opportunity to reminisce and reflect on how our “babies” have blossomed into the young people that they are today.
