October 2019

October is here!

Dear Texan Family,

Our digital newsletter will be sent home during the first week of each month this year. Please be sure that you continue to check Menger Mail on Wednesdays, our Menger Facebook page, Twitter and Menger Elementary Website for updates.

We hope you've had a great start to the year and that you have established morning routines with your children. Friendly reminder, school starts at 7:50 a.m. Students who arrive after 7:50 will be marked tardy. Students who arrive after 8:05 a.m will be counted as a partial day absence. Dismissal is at 3:05 p.m. on the back lawn, weather permitting. On rainy days, we will dismiss from the classrooms.

Our team looks forward to establishing a wonderful partnership in education with all of our families. Please reach out to any of us if we can ever help in any way.

October is a busy month! The last day of the first grading period is Friday, October 4th.

Fire Prevention Week 7-11
