May 2022 News
April Showers Bring May Flowers!
We are now in the 4th and final marking period of the 2021/2022 school year. Much like the May flowers that are appearing, our Mayo Mallards are growing in their academic skills and blooming in their social-emotional skills. We continue to reinforce our school values that students will be respectful, behave responsibly, and come to school ready to learn each day. Kindness is one gift that is free, and feels just a good giving as receiving.
This month is "Move-it-May" at Mayo Elementary! Students and staff will be setting health and fitness goals. Visit the Move-it-May home calendar for fun activities to complete as a family. The goal is to complete at least 10 activities in the month of May. While we are focusing on health, as a school community, we must work together to keep all staff and students safe and healthy. Please be sure to notify your child's teacher and keep your student home if they are not feeling well. If you ever have a question, please call the school and ask to speak to the Health Room or email Mrs. Hutzell, our school nurse, at email@example.com.
The Mayo PTO continues to do an amazing job supporting our school! Check the PTO website for the many initiatives our PTO has sponsored, including "Teacher and Staff of the Week" and "Nacho Average" Teacher and Staff appreciation week. We love our Mayo community and appreciate all of your support and recognition.

Principal, Mayo Elementary

Mayo Elementary students and staff will be participating in a Move-it-May Challenge. Students will have in-school exercises and fitness challenges, including lap running at recess. Students will be given a Move-it-May necklace and will earn a bead for each lap they run at recess.
Students are encouraged to participate at home by completing at least 10 activities from the Move-it-May Calendar (on the back of this letter). Students will receive a special charm for their Move-it-May necklace for completion. Calendars need to be signed and returned to school by Friday, May 27.
We are also encouraging your child to wear appropriate fitness attire to school (yoga/sweat pants, shirt, and tennis shoes) so they will be more comfortable performing the in-school exercises. All exercises are optional.
Please contact April Crovo with any questions. firstname.lastname@example.org

We look forward to sharing our improvements with you when we reopen on Monday, June 6! Because of this closure, our list of upcoming events is a bit short this month, but I still wanted to highlight a few fun opportunities:
