Dear McKelvie Families ~
We have arrived at February Vacation. It is amazing how quickly this year is speeding by! Whether you are staying in town or traveling to the tropics, I hope that this next week is full of rest and rejuvenation. We will look forward to bright eyed students on Monday, March 5th.
Grade 6 Course Information Night - SAVE THE DATE
On March 27th @ 6pm Lurgio will hold an Information Session on how to register your child for 7th grade classes. Location: Lurgio Dining Hall.
An Author is Coming!
We excited to welcome Small As An Elephant author, Jennifer Richard Jacobson to McKelvie Intermediate School on Tuesday, March 6th, following vacation. This visit has been made possible by generous support from the Bedford PTG and we are grateful for their donation for this author visit. If your child has a copy of the book, Small As An Elephant, or any book by Jennifer Richard Jacobson that you would like her to sign during her visit to the school, please send the book to the Guidance Office on or before Tuesday. Please place a sticky note on the outside of the book with "Your Child's Name, Your Child's Homeroom Teacher, and The Name you would like the author to sign the book to." Please contact Jodi Parsons if you have any questions.
Lost & Found
If your child has lost an item you just can’t find it, please take a moment and check out our Lost and Found. Items will be donated next Wednesday, February 28th.
World Language Month
Each year our World Language Teachers celebrate WLM in March with all sorts of special activities. One way we celebrate is by offering new foods from different countries as an option for hot lunch. Click HERE for a copy of those meals and the dates they are being offered.
From the CAT Team
Thank you to McKelvie students and families for your support of the Community Action Team's Candy Gram sales. We were pleased to be able to donate $560 to the Boston Children's Hospital 2018 HUG-raiser Campaign. A donation to his campaign "will help to provide adorable plush dogs to boys and girls at Boston Children's Hospital. A sick child who is scared or feeling alone will receive this special - huggable gift." Community Action Team was pleased to contribute to this special drive on behalf of our school community.
From the Library
Click HERE to see students collaboratively working on the latest 1,000 piece lighthouse puzzle. Many students have been working on this puzzle during recess and other opportunities when they have time between assignments!
Just a friendly reminder... The 2018 Fisher Cats' Reading Challenge is coming to a close! Many forms have been requested by both students and homeroom teachers. If you need one, please send your student(s) to the McKelvie Library.
Here are a few important reminders from the Fisher Cats as the 2018 Challenge wraps up:
- Forms are due back by Friday, March 16th.
- Forms must be filled out with mailing address in order for tickets to be mailed home. Any forms with incomplete addresses are left at Will Call for the designated game.
- Students are invited to play catch on the field before each Reading Challenge game, and they’ll receive all the details in a letter they’ll get with their tickets and certificates of completion.
- The number one question I get is “Do we have to pay the $3 processing fee if we only are getting the two free tickets?” Nope, that’s only if you’re purchasing additional tickets!
- The mailing address is:
