Dear McKelvie Families ~

Today's kick off of our READ Project was AMAZING.  I have the privilege of reading with twelve 5th grade students and they are awesome.  In case you are not up to speed, we are reading Fish In a Tree by Lynda Mullaly Hunt.  And - thanks to the Bedford Education Foundation (BEF), Ms. Hunt will be visiting McKelvie this year.

Polite & Right Raffle Winners

McKelvie School Pictures
Thursday was picture day and the kids looked terrific.  There were ties, gel, collared shirts, and big smiles.  It's always a nice reminder to see everyone all cleaned up!  I hope that your child's picture comes out great.  If not, retakes are scheduled for Monday, October 26th.

McKelvie & Chipolte - 10/7
Mark you calendars and plan to give your kitchen the night off!  On Wednesday, October 7th, between 5:00 and 8:00, the Bedford Chipotle will be hosting a fundraiser to support the McKelvie Intermediate School, Move-A-Thon!  Plan to eat great and support our school!  Click here for more information.

McKelvie Directory Information  
A school directory letter went home today. In years past these letters have been eaten by pack packs, washing machines, lunch boxes and various other animate or inanimate objects.  If you do not see the form, please ask your child if they have it in their paperwork.  It would be very much appreciated if you could make any corrections and/or changes to the data on this form and return as soon as possible.   The directories from McKelvie will be the last opportunity for you to have a collection of addresses, emails, phone numbers, etc. for your son/daughter's classmates.  The cost of this year's directory will be $8 for one or $15 for two.  The order form is part of the letter which you should be receiving.  Again, your prompt response will be appreciated as there is much work to be done getting this Directory ready for printing.  Questions can be directed to Barbara Chagnon,

Shopping Rewards
It's that time a year again to help earn money for our school. There are several ways to do this. It's easy, just clip box tops or labels for education on participating products such as soup and goldfish bags and send them into your school. Other ways to earn money for our school are Hannafords Rewards and Target Rewards. At Hannaford, buy 4 participating products and you will get 3 reward dollars for the school. Take the reward certificate and drop it in the provided box with the school's name before you leave the store. At Target, you can link your credit or debit REDcard on the Target website for the school and every time you use them 1% is given back to the school.  Questions can be directed to Stephanie Richard at
