Principal's Weekly Memo January January 20-January 24, 2020

Montemalaga Elementary

Weekly Memo

January 20-January 24, 2020


SOAR-A Acting responsibly-Sometimes we have substitute teachers in our classrooms when our teachers have meetings and staff development.  Acting responsibly means being extra kind, thoughtful, and responsible when a guest Is in the classroom.  Acting responsibly is something that requires both determination and hard work.  Please remember to always demonstrate acting responsibly when substitute teachers are at Montemalaga.

Character Trait:  Kindness:  Be kind to others, so that you may learn the secret art of being king to yourself-

Responsibility- Ask yourself this week if you are being responsible by making sure that you are arriving at school on time every day?


Congratulations to our 4th and 5th grade teams that competed in Elementary Math Field Day on Saturday, January 18.  We are proud of your accomplishments!

Our goal is to be a school of 100% Kindness during Yellow Ribbon Week.  Be sure to complete all activities on the list and return the list to your teacher.

Parents are reminded to call the attendance line or email the office the morning when their child is ill or will be missing school

Parents are reminded to arrive at school by 8:30.  School attendance and being on time are part of the important data collected from our school.  Being late and missing just a few minutes of instruction regularly are not promoting responsible learners.
