January 13, 2023
Dear Mullen-Hall Families,
This weekend we honor the legacy of Dr. Martin
Luther King, Jr. We celebrate his life and accomplishments, and share his dream for diversity, equity and inclusion for all people. A storywalk is hung in the first floor hallway in honor of Dr. King.
As we get further into the school year, we would like to remind you of the importance of good attendance for all students. Every day a student is absent is a lost opportunity for learning. Showing up for school everyday and on time has a huge impact on a student’s academic success starting in kindergarten and continuing through high school. A child is chronically absent if he or she misses just two days every month! Our goal is to support families in ensuring that every student attends school regularly. Here are a few practical tips to help support regular attendance:
Make sure your children keep a regular bedtime and establish a morning routine.
Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before.
Ensure your students go to school every day unless they are truly sick.
Avoid scheduling vacations or doctor’s appointments when school is in session.
Talk to teachers and counselors for advice if your children feel anxious about going to school.
Develop back up plans for getting to school if something comes up.
Call on a family member, neighbor, or another parent to take your child to school.
The dates and benchmarks of attendance letters are as follows:

Please reach out with any questions, concerns or support.

Message from Martha’s Vineyard Savings Bank:
We had an AWESOME turn out at banking today, starting 2023 off with lots of Mullen-Hall savers!! This month we are raffling off a $50 bowling gift certificate, very generously donated by Timber Bowling in downtown Falmouth. Each time students bank in January they are entered to win, the winner will be drawn on Feb 3rd. The national raffle is for a $40 Lego gift certificate. Students who bank at least 3 times by Valentines Day are automatically entered in the national drawing.
We would love to have at least 10 new bankers join us in 2023, come see us in the cafeteria on Friday mornings to sign up! Martha's Vineyard Bank automatically deposits $1 when you sign up and the students receive a lanyard to bring their money back and forth to school. See the link at the bottom for the signup sheet.
Each week I will include a Google Form as a vehicle for you to share your thoughts and ask questions.
