February 6, 2017 marks the beginning of the third marking period. This means we are at the halfway point of the school year. It is amazing how quickly time passes. While there is still an opportunity to help improve student performance, I encourage you to continue to check the Portal for updates on your child’s academic progress and to reach out to our teachers or counselors if you have a concern.
I am proud to announce that at McAuliffe, we have organized our first Student School Safety Team. This committee is comprised of 12 students ranging from all three grade levels with varying hobbies and activities as well as backgrounds and experiences. Our goal is to review current practices and programs as they relate to the culture, climate and safety of the school building as well as our students’ experiences and perceptions. This committee will work closely with our chairpersons for the Staff School Safety Team and Character Education Programs.
As mentioned in the parent email blast, our Scholastic Book Fair will be taking place in the IMC from February 6 - 10th. Students will have the opportunity to purchase books during their literacy classes and certainly during their lunch periods.
I encourage you all to continue to check our school webpage for updates on activities, Spring Sports meetings/practice start dates, after school opportunities and special events including dances, and club meetings.
