Letter from Claire - Oct 17

October 17, 2016

 

Dear Families,

Please come to Chat with Claire on Tuesday, October 18th @ 6:00 pm in the auditorium. The PTA meeting will be joining.

 

We are hosting our middle school open house on Wednesday, October 19th at 6:00. This event showcases our amazing Middle School and what is so special. Last year we had close to 300 guests (MSC families as well as families from other District 3 schools).

 

Coming Up…

The PTA has partnered with LICEFREE NYC. They will be in our school on Tuesday, October 18th from 8:45-10AM in the auditorium to give a lice workshop for families and will provide a head lice screening on Thursday, October 20th and Friday, October 21st.

 

Reminders:

Grades 6-8, first marking period ends on October 24th. Family will sign up for an appointment for a family conference. The letter with the link and dates/times will be shared this week as an email and a hard copy.

 

K-5 teachers have placed sign up sheets up for family conferences.

 

As Halloween approaches, please remember, the MSC community has families from many different cultures and traditions. Some families in our school community do not celebrate holidays because of religious or cultural beliefs. Therefore, we do not celebrate holidays, or decorate the school or classrooms for holidays, nor do we hold holiday celebrations. Please remind your children of our policy. Students should NOT wear costumes to school.

 

Updates:

The plumbers and DOE have been working hard to resolve the water issues. It is expected that we will have water and the issues will be resolved this week. We will keep you posted.

 

We had a meeting with about the upcoming construction. The expected start date is mid November. Great news, we will be able to continue using the yard for recess.

 

Best,

Claire
