Dear MKG Families,
As I move onto the next phase of my life, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the MKG families and students for allowing me to be a part of the MKG community. I have enjoyed my work with the families, children and teachers.
I am reminded daily of the efforts put in by parent volunteers at MKG. The task of running an event or fundraiser is overwhelming with a population of 600 students, yet these volunteers step up and get things done! Tuesday folder volunteers, Holiday Extravaganza, PTA and School Council members who put in so many hours, I thank you for your service. All of your efforts are noticed and appreciated. Supportive partnerships in learning are key to improving children’s development and success in schools. MKG is fortunate to have these partnerships.
I will miss working with your children. It has been a pleasure to greet them each morning as they get off the bus. I have enjoyed watching them grow and learn. Continue to encourage your children to be a person of great character and to put forth their personal best every day. Your children will do great things in life!
I wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season and a happy and healthy 2015.
The Holiday Season is here and MKG is ready to celebrate! Grade two students invited family members to school to help them create a non-edible gingerbread house. It is so rewarding to see the number of families that came to school to help with this fun project. Grade 2 teachers would like to thank all who participated or donated items to be used for decorations on the gingerbread house.
Gingerbread Man on the Loose!
Reading Specialist, Dianne Phillips worked with the first grade teachers to develop a theme unit based on the story The Gingerbread Man. Students read the story The Gingerbread Man, wrote about the gingerbread man and created art projects about the gingerbread man. Over the course of the afternoon the Gingerbread Man got away and visited many places at MKG!! Being great detectives, the first grade students were able to follow the clues and bring him home again!
December is a very busy month at MKG. Please take a few minutes to read about the happenings at MKG.
Morning Drop off Reminder
8:35 am is drop off time for students coming to school. There is no supervision for students prior to the 8:35 drop off time. You must wait for an administrator or teacher to open the door and welcome your child to school. Do not leave students under the portico unsupervised. We thank you for your cooperation and help keeping our MKG students safe.
Once again this year MKG celebrated American Education Week by inviting parents/guardians to visit our school on Monday, November 24th. Parents had an opportunity to visit their child’s classroom and observe a “regular” school day. Many thanks to all who came out in such awful weather to visit the MKG classrooms. We were thrilled to have over 150 parents/guardians visit our school to share a day of learning with their child.
American Education Week presents all Americans with a wonderful opportunity to celebrate public education and honor individuals who are making a difference in ensuring that every child receives a quality education. During Parent Visitation Day, schools across the nation invite parents/guardians into the classroom to experience firsthand what a school day is like for their child. The initiative is designed to spotlight the importance of parental involvement.
