Mako Memo - November 3, 2023


November 3, 2023 

Dear Mullen-Hall Families,

 Our annual Spooktacular took place on Friday night! Thank you to our amazing volunteers who helped to decorate, donate items, and bake to make our event spectacular. We also honored our longstanding tradition of the Halloween Parade on Tuesday morning! It was wonderful to see our students in costume and our families lining the route! A great way to end the month of October! Thank you to Mrs. Jazo and the Mako Madrigals for the musical contribution, and our 4th grade’s “I Feel Like Somebody’s  Watching Me” dancers for their performance. Together it was a community celebration!

Our Kindness Challenge:

Clean your room without being asked! 



We are excited to share with you an opportunity to celebrate our Cape Verdean community through a student contest that welcomes creative expression. This contest is one of many ways that Falmouth Public Schools will celebrate Cape Verdean heritage and culture in the coming year. 

Why this year? Cape Verde, or Cabo Verde, achieved its independence in 1975 – two years after the assassination of their renowned freedom fighter, Amilcar Cabral – whose 100th birthday would have been next September. As we reflect on Amilcar Cabral’s leadership, we are partnering with our friends at the Cape Cod Cape Verdean Museum & Cultural Center to offer this opportunity. To learn more about Amilcar Cabral and the values he held as a leader, please listen to our friend Barbara Burgo as she shares her knowledge with you. 

We encourage all Clippers to submit.

We are still in need of an afternoon crossing guard. The time is from 3:20 pm till the last bus leaves. If interested, please apply to the  Falmouth Public Schools website.

The general permission includes permission to take and share photos as well as walking field trip permission. These must be updated even if there were NO CHANGES.
