The Principal's Corner
October has definitely brought more treats than tricks at Mount Hall Elementary. We welcomed author, Gary Hogg, to our school. Mr. Hogg addressed all the students at an all school assembly, and then visited the classrooms to help students with the writing process. Mr. Hogg’s visit was a huge success, and was thoroughly enjoyed by students and teachers.
October also marked the implementation of PBIS. Students have been very excited to receive their WOW cards, and even more excited to cash them in on prizes from the WOW Wagon. As the excitement from the WOW Wagon winds down, students can save up their WOW cards for a ride on the Principal Taxi, 15 extra minutes of recess, a private lunch with their teacher, or even becoming principal for a day. A big thank-you goes out to our PTSA for their support of the WOW Wagon. PBIS is much more than earning a weekly prize. It’s helping students think of how they can be Safe, Civil, and Productive students at Mount Hall Elementary. Please encourage your child to think about ways they can be Safe, Civil, and Productive at home.
At the end of November, there will be a first quarter awards assembly. We will be recognizing all the hard work of our students, as well as our September, October, and November students of the month. We will send home an invitation in a couple of weeks. Wendy will also be sending home an invitation for families to attend our Thanksgiving lunch. We hope you can make both events.
With the weather fluctuating so much the time your child arrives and leaves school, please make sure your child has the appropriate clothing to stay warm throughout the day. Also, please be aware of the District’s attendance policy. Your child should be at school 90% of the time. With that said, if your child is throwing up or complaining of a sore throat or upset stomach, please consider keeping them home for the day. Your child’s education is important, but not as important as their health.
Mount Hall Elementary is a great place to be. I have really enjoyed my time here, and I look forward to what all this year has in store. I’m especially excited to attend the famous Mount Hall Auction. Mark your calendars for November 20th! It’s shaping up to be a fantastic event!
