There is no school on Monday, February 19 (It is a Professional Development Day for teachers) and we have a Kindergarten field trip on Friday. Please make sure assignments are turned in this week because the end of the six weeks is on Friday and teachers are calculating grades for report cards.
TOMORROW is the deadline for logo proposals for Mockingbird Elementary School!
*Submissions must be received by 12 midnight, February 20th.

Presentations/Decision: March 8th, 7pm
The presentation meeting will be an open meeting and a decision will be made by ballot.
Kids want to have fun too! On Thursday March 22nd students can dress up as their favorite rock band, musical icon or in music festival fashion. During recess after lunch all students will attend KidPalooza on the playground. We will be filming for the auction video. If you would like to get involved please contact Gina Laramy at email@example.com.
There are still lots of slots open for next week's PTA Work Room!
See below for the PTA Work Room days for the remainder of the year:
Friday, March 2nd
Thursday, April 5th
Friday, May 4th
The PTA Work Room is a great resource for our teachers, as we help them complete projects/class work they would normally not have time to complete, or would have to stay after school to complete. This is an invaluable resource for teachers, and they are SO grateful for our help!

Do Deaf people watch TV?
Yes, with closed captions, if you'd like to turn them on: there is a button on your remote that says "CC" or find captioning options under Menu. Closed captions improve one's reading skills. It does not apply only to Deaf people. It also can apply to young hearing children learning how to read, older hearing individuals who are losing their hearing, individuals learning English as a second language. They can benefit from having captions on their TV.
