Dear Students:

This week is Book Week! Be sure to submit your writing entries, answer the question of the day and vote for your favorite
book. Remember to have a book on hand for Drop Everything and Read which will be from 10:20 – 10:40 on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday
and Friday and from 12:20 – 12:40 on Wednesday. If you’re looking for a book to read, visit the MSMC to get some ideas and check out
the reading lists. On Friday, Grade 6 will have the opportunity to meet and talk with visiting author Andy Mulligan during 1st block in
the LT; Grade 7 will meet with him during 2nd block.

Don’t miss the PTA Family Fun Day this Saturday, February 5. Come and enjoy the fun on the ES Field from 2 P.M onward. Tickets are
available now.

Please be reminded of the concerns raised during our Wednesday MS Assembly:


♦ MS students are expected to eat lunch in the MS/HS cafeteria; the ES Canteen is off limits.
♦ Students are expected to throw trash in recycling bins – not leave it in hallways or on tables around our school. The school looks
much better with a clean canteen and clean hallways. Wouldn’t you agree? So let’s make it happen!
♦ Students are required to follow the ISM Uniform Policy, especially regarding undershirt color, length of shorts and PE shorts.
♦ Carry only the books and materials you need for class. Back packs are to be placed in lockers.

Ms. Fredericks and Ms. Sayson
