• Dear MAE families,

    We have had an exciting start to the month of March with our Read Across America event. This event highlights why MAE is a unique and special school. It showcases our creativity, our parent and community support and our love of all things reading. It was a great start to what will be a great month for us all at MAE. 

    Spring Break will be held March 11-March 15. This will give all of our families time to relax and refresh. When we return from Spring Break, we will begin the 4th 9 weeks of instruction. This 9 weeks is crucial. Many ELA and Math skills that have been introduced throughout the year will be formally assessed. Parents, please stay diligent with homework and reading routines. Please also ensure that your student has a full night's rest each night so that they are able to perform well at school. Students ages 6-8 need an average of 10-11 hours of sleep each night. Some children in this age range need 12 hours. This means that most of our students should be asleep by 8:00 or 8:30 p.m. at the latest on school nights.

    This last 9 weeks will be a challenging one, but it will include lots of fun and new experiences. We cover many of our science standards during the spring and because our students are more mature at this point in the year, they are able to complete complex activities that they may not have been ready for in the first few 9 weeks. Parnets, thank you for your continued support. As always, if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions, please feel free to contact us. Mr. B and I are here to serve you and your student. 

    Sincerely,

    Melissa Philley
