jack's donuts

The next school food fundraiser will be held ALL DAY on Monday, January 16th (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day). We do NOT have school that day so families can enjoy a morning breakfast at Jack's Donuts located on Carmel Drive! 20% of sales will be donated back to MTE when you show the flyer from this week's newsletter. Jack's Donuts hours of operation are 5am to 10pm.



Join Math Pentathlon!

We are gearing up for another great year of Math Pentathlon for students in grades K-3! Math Pentathlon is an engaging and interactive program where we play problem-solving games. MP has proven effective at motivating ALL students to enjoy math and spend more time learning math. This program strengthens basic math concepts and skills, and stimulates creative thinking while developing problem-solving skills. AND it’s fun! As with many of our fun extra-curricular activities at Mohawk, parent involvement is vital to the club’s success.

We want you to be a Clay Trojan

Please join us on Wednesday, January 25, 2017 at Clay Middle School for exciting Trojan basketball contest.

All Mohawk Trails fifth graders are invited to Clay after school on January 25th to talk with Clay students, take a tour of the building, eat pizza, and cheer on the Troians!! Parents will drop off fifth graders at Clay at 3:50 PM. Students will first meet in the cafeteria. Use the main entrance on the south side of the building (door 1). Mohawk Trails fifth graders will be admitted free to the game. Admission to the game is $4.00 for adults, $2.00 for students, and free for fans not yet in school. Students will have an opportunity at halftime of the game to purchase hot dogs, popcorn, snacks, and/or drinks.

While we never know when a game will end, a good approximate end time for the first game is 6:00 PM. Parents should pick up their Mohawk Trails students at the main entrance (door 1) at 6:00 PM on Wednesday, January 25, 2017. To ensure everyone's safety, please come in door 1 to pick up your child.

We look forward to welcoming you as a Trojan!

For the 2017 - 2018 School Year, K - 3rd Grade students are re-quired by law to have two doses of Hepatitis A. There must be at least 6 months between doses or the immunization is considered non-compliant. That is why I am sending this information now. Kindergarten and 1st graders have had two doses or are in the process of getting this immunization series completed. Parents of 2nd graders and third graders need to contact their doctor to see if their child has had both doses and if not, please set the first appointment NOW so that dose # 2 is completed by the first day of the new school year. Do not wait to get this done, the timing will not meet the law requirements!!!! If you have a child in Grade 4 - 12th, check the flyer carefully for any additional immunizations that will be required in order to start the 2017 - 2018 School Year. Feel free to call me if you have questions. Thank you, Mrs. Lukes Ann Lukes, R.N.
