Dear McKelvie Families ~

Well, that was a surprise!  Our first snow day.  Aside from skiing, I was really hoping to go from fall to spring.  Not the case.  This week's notes are rather slim.  Enjoy the brevity as they will be jam packed in the next few months. 

New Last Day of School is Wednesday, June 15, 2016
A reminder that there is no school on Tuesday, February 9th due to the Presidential Primary.  

Student Council Retro Day
Due to today's school cancellation, Retro Day will now be held on Friday, February 12th.

Super Bowl Sunday
While I was hoping for a different arrangement for the 50th, I will revel in maintaining a regular blood pressure (remember last year!?).  Good luck to the Bronco and Panther fans!  I anticipate sleepy faces on Monday.

Groundhog Day
On Tuesday of this week, some of our students decided to do their math work Groundhog Style.  Your kids' imaginations never cease to amaze.  Click here to see an example of a "burrow."

McKelvie Yearbooks - ACTION ITEM
Great news!  The 15/16 McKelvie yearbooks are on sale now and can be pre-ordered for only $22. Click HERE for ordering information.  Online ordering is the easiest method; however, if you prefer to pay by cash or check, complete the order form that was sent home today with your student and return it to his/her homeroom teacher with payment. Checks should be payable to McKelvie Intermediate School.

Don't miss out on a great book of memories from the 15/16 school year.  Order deadline is April 13, 2016.  We will have a small handful of extra books available when the books arrive, but they will be sold on a first come, first served basis and will sell for $25.

Lurgio's Stand By Me Fundraiser- Tuesday February 9, 2016:
Are you looking for something to do with your kids next Tuesday either before or after you vote? How about helping out Lurgio and the students on the Stand By Me committee. They are holding a fundraiser at the new Sky Zone in Manchester! 25% of ticket sales go back to SBM. Come anytime between 10-3 PM, grab a flyer there and make sure to reference the SBM Fundraiser.
