    Welcome to MKG

    First, we would like to welcome everyone back to Mary K. Goode for the 2014-2015 school year. We had a successful opening two days of school.  Our bus rides went smoothly as did our parent drop off and pick-ups. If there were any delays, we appreciated your understanding and cooperation.

    This year students are entering their classrooms directly from the buses or parent drop-off. This has created a quiet and calm entrance to school in the morning. Students have an opportunity to chat quietly with friends, unpack their backpacks and organize for their academic day. This also allows ample time for students to go to the cafeteria for breakfast.

    Allergy Aware

    We have an Allergy Aware table available for students with food allergies. If your child has a food allergy, please make sure that our school nurse Mrs. Santos is aware of the allergy. Our cafeteria serves only nut free food. If your child sits at the allergy table, he/she may invite a friend who purchases a hot lunch to sit with him/her.  All other cafeteria tables will be mixed with a combination of hot lunch and lunches brought from home. If your child is in a designated Allergy Aware classroom, you have received information on appropriate snacks to send in with your child. We appreciate your help in keeping all students safe in school. Please be aware that the Middleborough Public School Wellness Policy (2014) states “Classroom parties for holidays and other special occasions will not include food items for preschool through grade 8.” We appreciate your support by not sending in food items for birthday and other celebrations.

    Dismissal

     Dismissal from MKG is at 3:20 pm. Students taking the bus are walked by their teachers to the bus line. Students who have a note stating they will be picked up by a parent/guardian will be dismissed from the back door by the outdoor garden. Please do not arrive before 3:05 to pick up your child. The waiting area is next to active classrooms and the noise can cause a distraction to teachers and students. Please make sure you have completed all permission/registration forms and have a license or other official ID when picking up students. The safety of our students is our primary concern.

    Open House

    Please plan to join us on Tuesday, September 23rd for our MKG Open House. Families are invited to visit MKG starting at 6:30 pm. Please stop by to meet classrooms teachers and our special area teachers, tour the school and your child’s classroom. Don’t forget to stop by the office and say hello! This is a wonderful time to learn more about your child’s class and have an opportunity to sign up to volunteer.

    Communication

    Please feel free to contact us if you have questions or concerns. If it is a classroom concern, your child’s teacher should be the first point of contact.  Mr. Delani’s preferred method of communication is speaking with parents either by phone or in person.  Please call the office to set up an appointment or speak with him by phone.
