Message from the 2015 Pow Wow Chair

It is time for us to begin to plan Pow Wow, which is scheduled for March 27 from 6-9pm.  My name is Leona Woody, I am the new MTE parent this year, and I'm very excited about my role as Pow Wow Chair.  I have a passion for these types of events.  I look forward to working along side of all of you to create this exciting event for our children.  I hope you will consider serving in one of the committee coordinator roles.  Click here to find details of the various  positions available.  The committee will begin meeting the week of January 25.  Thank You!



6th Grade Immunization Requirements

Parents of current 5th grade students:  This is a reminder that there are immunization requirements to start 6th grade.  Now would be a good time to go ahead and schedule an appointment to get those done before all summer appointments fill up at your respective doctor's office.  Please don't put off getting the required immunizations completed according to age and number of doses.  Spacing between doses for some immunizations is  critical.

If your child receives any immunizations prior to the last day of the 2014-1015  school year,  be sure that I receive an official copy that was given. That way I can keep a current record for your child as well as the middle school nurse. Let me know if you have any questions.

100 Book Club News

Participation in 100 Book Club has been fantastic, keeping our volunteers busy with record keeping and awarding of prizes as students complete levels. Before booklets are turned in, parents should verify that their students have read the correct number of books, or for 2nd-5th grade, read the required amount of pages or minutes. Parents MUST also sign the signature page before our volunteers can award prizes.

Please disregard the expiration date on the Which Wich coupon, which is awarded to students who complete the first level. The coupon is being honored at the Which Wich restaurant located on Carmel Drive, in front of Meijer!




Last year Mohawk Trails Elementary received $1023.00 from Target through Take Charge of Education Program! Please make sure your Target REDcard is registered to give back to MTE!
