Enjoy your February vacation, and try to relax and regroup for our return to school. We have a lot of things that we are planning for March and April, including the 4th and 5th grade Social in March, as well as the Complex Basketball game in April.
Happy 100th Day of School! We have 80 days left in the school year!
Happy Holidays from the staff at MKG!
I hope everyone has a great vacation, and has a chance to rest up and return to school recharged and ready to get 2016 off to a great start!
Over the last several weeks we have begun assessments with Renaissance, and we will continue in January with the classes that have not had a chance to participate yet.
We would also like to recognize Riley Letendre, a 4th grade student at MKG who had friends attending her birthday party to bring socks to donate to people in need. Please see the link to read about Riley: http://www.southcoasttoday.com/article/20151216/SPECIAL/151219613/101136
We had a great turn out at the Harvest Dance and raised over $3000 which will be used for classroom supplies.
Just a reminder that Thursday November 5th is Pajama Day! Please bring in a pair of pajamas to donate as well.
The Veteran's will be coming to do a presentation and flag ceremony on Monday November 9th in honor of Veteran's Day.

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.
