Weekly Memo April 16 - April 20, 2018

Montemalaga Elementary

Weekly Memo

April 16 - April 20, 2018


Character Trait:  Confidence and Poise

            It is a great compliment when you are told that you have a great deal of poise. What does this actually mean?  One definition is to act very together and calm in a stressful situation.  Take for example, the girls reading the Weekly Announcements.  They are really a little nervous, but to all of the teachers and students they seem to be very sure of themselves, calm and confident.  Think of a situation this week when you have been very poised at school.

Social Emotional Learning:  This week focus on being mindful about helping others.  Make sure that you make the time to help someone in need, someone with physical challenges, or someone whose needs are different from your own.  You will feel good by making such great choices.

Kindness Cart:  This week the Kindness Cart goes to room 16 for students reporting that they have been playing with peers needing to be included in activities. Congratulations room 16!

Please remember to write your kindness observations and submit them to the “Kindness Shout Out Box” in the office.

Lounge Duty:  Grade 2 Thank you very much!

Wednesday snack day help in the MPR:  Molly and Ashley please report to the MPR at 12:15 to help with snacks

We will begin CAASPP testing this week for grades 3-5.  Teachers all have their test schedules and locations.  Students are taking tests in Mathematics, English Language Arts and for grade 5-Science.  Our test window is April 17-May 11.  During the weeks of testing it is especially important that students arrive to school on time—have a good breakfast and have plenty of sleep the night before.  Thank you for your help and understanding-

Be Your Best Self…The Choice Is Yours!

Have a great week!
