Week of  December 16th  – 20th:   

 

Dear Members of the MHA PS 65x Community:

 

As the winter creeps upon us, it’s only fitting to wish everyone a warm and wondrous holiday season and a Happy New Year!  Please check out the MHA Website display a winter wonderland; (Thank you Ms. O’Blines for putting us all in the Joyful Spirit!)

 

It is true: this is the last week of school before the Winter Recess commences and closes the year 2013.  As we reflect on of all the amazing events and accomplishments achieved by the MHA members we ask that you kindly take this opportunity to contact the parents of your students to share the accomplishments and/or other positive commendations.

 

Please note that common planning this week will be with Ms. Presto in room 501.

 

We thank you and appreciate all you do!
