.Hard to believe but we are already looking forward to Summer Break! Where did this year go?! Just a few notes to help you help us prepare for the end of the year:
Book checkout will continue at teacher discretion until May 24th. No students or staff will be allowed to checkout materials after May 24th. Please start returning all books and materials to the Learning Commons ASAP. Officially all books are due May 24th but we would really like to see everything returned ASAP.
Book Fair IS next week, May 16-18. May 12 & 13 are Book Fair preview, checkout the schedule here. More information about the Spring Extravaganza and Book Fair will be coming soon.
Teachers who plan to return to Malvern (MALVERN) next year are allowed to checkout their laptop and iPad over the summer. To do this you will need to do two things: 1. Physically bring each to the Learning Commons to be renewed and 2. Complete and electronically sign summer checkout policy for teacher iPad and teacher laptop.
All other iPads and the laptops of teachers not returning to MISD MUST be completely reset and all iTunes accounts logged off (ESPECIALLY personal accounts), pass-codes removed and returned to the Learning Commons BEFORE 6/4. If you need help with this, please ask Miss Hefley.

IF you have experienced any issues with technology (iPads, your laptop, your Smart Board, etc.) that have not been resolved or that you have simply been living with, PLEASE put help tickets in NOW so it can be fixed ASAP so we start the next school year on the right foot without those technology issues. Just like teachers, the techs cannot come into Malvern over the summer....so it is best to get things fixed ASAP.
Yearbooks: We have 50-60 Extra Yearbooks to sell. Parents are still welcome to purchase these in the main office or Learning Commons for $15.
Clubs: The last Club's time for grades 3-5 (and K-2 Coding Club) is Friday May 13th from 2-3pm.
Final Friday Live: The final combined Friday Live and Deans list assemblies are THURSDAY May 26th.
Grades 3-5: 8:05-8:50am. Pictures will immediately follow in the cafeteria with ALL award winners 8:50 - 9:05. Please plan to have one teacher per grade stay with these students.
Grades K-2: 9-9:45am. Pictures to follow in cafeteria 9:45-10. Please plan to have one teacher per grade stay with these students.
Note: 4th grade gym will take place outside or in the Learning Commons.
Maker Faire: Just to see who reads all the way to the bottom of this long but important message. I am considering holding a "Maker Faire" May 31-June 2. This Faire would involve class challenges for each day with school-wide competition. It would also involve Explorer Stations (activities for 2-4 student teams) set up in the Learning Commons. To sign your class up to participate in competitions or for time to visit the stations each day please complete this form. Time slots are limited and we will honor first come first serve, but please be considerate and only select Station times that you really can commit to.
