If you have a child already attending MM and want us to send an enrollment packet home for a child not currently attending our school or entering TK or K, please let us know by email at ndiaz@ojaiusd.org or send a note to school with your child.  We will provide parents who are unfamiliar with our TK/K program a tour on Friday, February 15 between 9:00 and 10:30 AM. Please spread the word! If you live outside of the Mira Monte boundaries your chances of being accepted are better if you complete your registration forms early.

Our second trimester art teacher, Vera Long, started this week with students in grades 1st - 4th and 6th grade.  Teacher and students have given the program a thumbs up!

Please send your aluminum cans to school to help us raise funds for the 5th and 6th grade Catalina Island Marine Institute (CIMI) financial aid account.  With so many students attending this year, we have many needs. Thank you!

Thank you to Farmer and the Cook for sponsoring our Character Trait lunch this week!  The food was delicious! The students especially enjoyed the freshly squeezed lemonade choice. If you happen to go to Farmer and the Cook, please thank them for feeding our students. If you have never been there, check it out!

Our enrichment classes began this week. We’ll add a class to the calendar for Spanish and choir to make up for the rain cancellation.

Don’t wait to purchase “Sweet Bee” Valentine’s Day grams! Order forms are downloadable from our website.  Students are welcome to purchase them for their entire class, friends in other class, and adults on campus. Parents are welcome to surprise their children with a gram (drop off in the office). Order forms are also in the office. Order them early while supplies last! We ordered 800!  They will likely sell out! They arrived today! They are SO cute! Don’t forget to add the room number the sweet bee will be going to!

We have SO many lost and found items! If your child is missing anything, please have them check the bin. At the end of each month, we bag the lost and found and store it in the MP room. At the end of the following month, lost and found is delivered to a local charity. Please do not wait!

5th and 6th grade parents, Please help your children remember to bring their ukulele or band instrument to school.   The students only see their teacher once per week, it is critical that they don’t forget!

Pajama Day is Friday, January 25!  Send students in comfy, cozy PJs, but please remember appropriate shoes!
