MRH ECC Parent Update
MRH ECC Update: March 23 – April 28
Monday, March 23, 2015: 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.
NEW: An update will be shared with our parents and community on the location of the proposed new Preschool!
Parents and community members are invited to join us for a “town hall style” discussion hosted by the MRH Board of Education to discuss Proposition K. A panel of MRH administrators, teachers, and Board members will be available to answer your questions about our community’s growing student enrollment and the District’s plan to alleviate overcrowding at the Early Childhood Center and Elementary School.
The bond issue on the April 7, 2015 ballot, known as Proposition K, includes $6.1 million for projects that will provide $1.75 million for land acquisition, site development and other related costs, and $4.35 million for construction of a new eight homeroom Preschool and renovation of the existing Preschool into a Kindergarten Center.
This plan will provide much-needed space by creating a new Preschool Center, moving the Kindergarten to the current Preschool space, and bringing the 2nd Grade class back to the Early Childhood Center, which would provide the Elementary School six additional classrooms (the current classrooms of the 2nd Grade).
PTO Notes & News:
Hello MRH ECC Parents,
I hope you are all enjoying Spring Break and this wonderful weather we are having.
The PTO has brought back Original Works this year. For those of you that are unfamiliar with Original Works, it is a company that will place your child's artwork on fun products to wear and share. Some of the items you can choose from are, coffee mugs, t-shirts, magnets and more. Every child has completed an art project and order forms will be going home on Monday, March 23rd and need to be turned in by March 30th. Orders will be delivered the week before Mother's Day. These products do make wonderful Mother's Day gifts.
Thanks to all parents who donated Box Tops for our last collection. A total of 3,365 box tops were collected in February with a grand total of 10,402 box tops collected for the year. That equals $1,040.00 raised for MRH ECC. Way to go!!! The classes currently in the lead for a popcorn party are -- Preschool - Ms. Ann Graham, Kindergarten - Mrs. Reside, and 1st Grade - Mrs. Bailey.
See attached spreadsheet for the class totals. Make sure to keep clipping. We will have one more collection before the year is out.
Thanks again for your support.
