Hello MBS Families,
This is your first newsletter for the 2018-2019 school year. I want to take this opportunity to update you on the courtyard renovation project. I cannot adequately express my gratitude to our contractor, Fred Matthews. Despite almost 30 days of rain, Fred has ensured “onward” progress all summer. The courtyard will not be completed, but work will continue. We are anticipating that it will be completed by the second week of school. While work continues we are considering all facets of the children’s safety.
One of the last things that will be completed will be the security fencing. We will be working with Custom Security to add a communication feature to the bell at the front gate as well as a secure entrance at the Ott Center for Before and After Care. I understand this is not ideal to begin school without the fencing, but it is the price of progress.
I also want to extend congratulations to Tammy Joseph. Mrs. Joseph will be assuming the position of Assistant Principal. Her primary duties will be discipline and curriculum and she will support all aspects of school administration. Please join me in welcoming Mrs. Joseph to her new position.
We are looking forward to seeing all of our students and teachers soon and cannot wait for another fabulous year.
Cheri M. Gioe, Principal
