Mako Memo - December 16, 2022


December 16, 2022


Dear Mullen-Hall Families, 

Our week began with some flurries and excitement for the first snow of the season. Our students were thrilled! Please remember to dress students appropriately as we continue to enjoy the outside as much as we can !

Please remember to Check backpacks today for report cards for grades 1-4! 


Gentle Reminders:

AM  Drop off : When dropping off  PLEASE pull up all the way in the Mullen Hall driveway  as we cannot be idling on Hamlin Ave. The staff members on duty will guide you through the line. 


Dismissal: Dismissal begins at 3:25. Line up at Lawrence School beginning at 3:20 pm. A staff member will release a certain number of cars from the line at Lawrence to the  Mullen Hall pick up line . Again idling  on Hamlin Ave. is illegal. We can only fit so many cars in the pick-up line at a time. 


Technology Reminder:

The inappropriate use of wallpaper on some student’s Chromebooks has been discovered. Please know that this is not an approved use for school issued Chrombooks. In addition, the Google Hangout and Google Chat feature should not be used on school issued Chromebooks both at school and at home.

We've had so many student savers this month!  So far Mullen-Hall students have saved $748 in December and we still have one more week of banking to go on Dec 23rd.  Great job everyone! 


3rd grader Paige Smith won a Marthas Vineyard Bank piggie bank last week and 2nd grader Kesha Matavele won a piggie bank this week.  There is another chance to win next week as well.   


If you would like your child to start saving with us in 2023 follow the link below to fill out the form.  They can bring it in to us on a Friday morning and we will get them signed up.  Forms are also available in the cafeteria during banking.   


Looking forward to our last day of banking in 2022 next Friday!
