Mako Memo - September 15, 2023

 MAKO MEMO         

September 15, 2023 

Dear Mullen-Hall Families,

We have completed our first full week ! Oh Yeah! We hosted two community meetings on Friday for the purpose of reviewing “What It Is To Be A Clipper.'' We reviewed bus expectations, cafeteria plan, hallway plan, school culture and being kind. Ask your Clipper about school expectations. 

Please write your student’s name on their lunch boxes/ jackets and backpacks. We have many items already without names and if labeled we will return!


Please remember if your child is going to be tardy or absent from school for any reason, including family obligations, please telephone the school Safe Arrival number at 508-548-0220 ext. 4.  This extension is available 24 hours a day for you.

If you have set up your portal you still need to log on and submit forms even if there are NO Changes! Please be on the lookout!  Your student’s classroom teacher will be reaching out to you if you still need to complete your forms. Link to Portal 

Please call for assistance WE ARE HERE FOR YOU !

If choosing a school lunch and your child would like seconds they must have money in their account or cash. If your child brings a home lunch and decides to select the school lunch that is an option. Please reach out to your child’s teacher if switching from home lunch to school lunch does not follow your family's plan.

Congratulations Mullen Hall on our first successful collection of food waste by Black Earth!  We are making a positive difference for the environment!

News from the Music Room:


The music room is buzzing with excitement! 3rd and 4th graders have the opportunity to join the choir!  It will be on Thursdays after school until 4:30 pm.  The name of our choir is The Mako Madrigals.  Please click here to register.

The 4th graders also have the opportunity to join the 4th grade band!  In music class they have been trying the instruments.  I recommend picking something that is easy to make a sound and you like listening to others play the instrument.  Band will take place after school on Wednesdays until 4:30 pm.  Depending on enrollment, a second day might be added.  Please click here to register.
