Dear Parents/Guardians:

Tuesday, November 19, 2013 will be a half-day for students so that teachers and parents can meet to discuss the progress of their children. Students will be dismissed at 12 (noon). Parent- Teacher Conferences will be held between 1-3 pm and 5:30-8 pm. In order to get your child’s report card, you must sign for it in the Atria before visiting teachers. We expect to see you for these very important meetings. Students who wish to get lunch may do so after dismissal. There will be no Sports and Arts or 21st Century Programs on Tuesday.

Student Pictures will take place on the following days next week:

  • 8th Grade Senior Pictures – Tuesday, November 19th in the am. A cap and gown will be provided.
  • 6th and 7th Grade Pictures – Wednesday, November 20th. Only students taking pictures can be dressed down.

School will be closed for the Thanksgiving Holiday on Thursday, November 28th and Friday, November 29th.

Students will be permitted to dress down on Friday, November 22nd. We are asking that any student who does brings with them a minimum of one non-perishable canned food item as a donation that we can use to support local food bank organizations. Often many have their supplies depleted between Thanksgiving and Christmas and our students have the unique opportunity to help these organizations while coming to school dressed down. We hope that you can help us articulate to students the importance of giving and helping others in need during this time of thanksgiving.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and we will see you on Tuesday for Parent-Teacher Conferences between 1-3 pm and 5:30-8 pm.

Mr. McNeill and the MSAP Staff
