Mako Memo - January 20, 2023

MAKO MEMO                                       


January 20, 2023


Dear Mullen-Hall Families,


As we return from our long weekend and move forward in the year, reminders of Dr. King's message lives in our Mullen Hall learning community. Our continual practice of spreading kindness, Celebrating No Guff Week and recognizing, understanding, appreciating and loving all of our CLIPPERS! In our Falmouth Community we are reminded that Falmouth is a No Place for Hate Community, and as we honor the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We continue to be inspired and educated by his legacy. “Falmouth is my Beloved Community” is the vision Falmouth Public Schools has brought forward to encapsulate how we see Falmouth, through our eyes and the eyes of our children. To build a genuinely beloved community, we must speak up when acts of hate occur and acknowledge the pain and rippling effects of trauma. We must recognize there are symbols, words, and acts of hate that have the power to negatively impact individuals and a community as a whole. We need to continue to reject hate and respond with love to all people. Our hearts go out to our community members and friends who are harmed by such acts. When one of us is harmed, we are all harmed. Let us come together and express love and care to our Beloved Community, not just on MLK Day, but every day.

Message from Martha’s Vineyard Savings Bank:


January has been a great month for saving at Mullen-Hall!  We are hoping for the students to reach a collective $900 of savings for the month, which would be their highest savings amount per month this school year!  Come help us reach that goal, we have one more week of banking this month on January 27th.  Next week is also the last week for entering their names into the drawing for a $50 gift certificate to Timber Bowling.


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.
