Mako Memo - May 10, 2024

MAKO MEMO

May 10, 2024

Dear Mullen-Hall Families, 

On Tuesday we held another community meeting. The kindergarten class sang and read the book ”Together”. A video was created by second grade Clippers emphasizing kindness, another group of Clippers read their poems that were entered in the  Quills and Quotes contest and another Clipper read a story that reflected empathy. Thank you to all who participated! 

We would like to say a great big THANK YOU to our amazing PTO and all of the marvelous Mako families that donated, reached out, volunteered, and sent in notes appreciating our teachers and staff this week during the extensive Teacher Appreciation Week celebrations.

Next week the third and fourth grades will be completing the MCAS test on Tuesday and Wednesday (5/14 & 5/15). Chromebooks will not go home as they will be needed for MCAS testing.

The Day of the Test 

● Make sure that your child is well rested and eats breakfast.

● See that your child arrives at school on time and is relaxed.

● Comfort counts. Send a sweater if it’s a cool day. Dress in layers for a warm day.

● Encourage your child to do the best work possible and to have a positive attitude.

● Encourage your child to listen/ read carefully to all test-taking directions and to ask questions if any directions are unclear.

● Remind your child not to get stuck on any one item. ● Encourage your child to check answers for accuracy.

Camp Invention Information:

We are excited to announce that again this summer, Falmouth Public Schools will host Camp Invention for our Elementary Clippers currently enrolled in Kindergarten - Grade 4. Through collaboration with the National Inventors Hall of Fame, Camp Invention is a one-week program of inquiry, problem-solving, and fun. Session 1 will run from July 8th to the 12th, and Session 2 will run from July 15th to the 19th. Both of this summer’s sessions will be offered at Falmouth High School from 9:00am-3:30pm. Each session is limited to 90 students and will fill on a first come, first served basis. Please note that this year, a tuition fee will be reinstated. Falmouth Public Schools will provide 50% of the cost, and families will need to provide the balance of $145. If this cost presents a challenge to your family, please reach out to your child’s principal. We have a dedicated scholarship fund to assist families with these challenges.
