Don't Forget to Spring Forward Today!
Calling all Mabry Stars! We want to celebrate your special gifts and talents! Whether it be singing, juggling, or dancing in a duck costume, there are no limits to what you can do!

The Annual Mabry Talent Show will be held on April 9th, 2020! All ages welcome!

More detailed information is in the registration form HERE.
A Message from Our Lunchroom:
We are in desperate need of volunteers in the lunch room, especially during the K & 1st grade lunches (10-11am)! If you are able to spare an hour, we would appreciate your time and help. This is a fun way to interact with Mabry students. If you're interested in volunteering, please sign up for a shift HERE

Also, as a friendly reminder, students bringing their own lunch from home must also bring silverware. The lunchroom cannot afford to supply silverware to students not purchasing a lunch. Thank you for your understanding.
Thank you all for your amazing support of the Mabry Auction. We hope everyone had a blast!

In an effort to have another successful event in 2021, we are looking to fill the Auction chair positions as soon as possible. If you like event planning, decor, and having fun...then this volunteer opportunity is for you. Grab a friend or two and plan the party of the year while giving back to your school!

If you're interested, please reach out to Yanira Teitelbaum.
American Cancer Luminaria Order Form
You can give to the American Cancer Society and keep the flame of hope lit by dedicating a luminaria in memory of someone lost to cancer or in honor of someone still fighting or who has beaten the disease.

Luminarias are $10 each and can have up to 10 words of dedication in addition to the name. Forms can be found  HERE and must be returned by Thursday, April 17, 2020.
March's Character Connection:
Here are some discussion points and activities to encourage self-control within your child:
  • Make a list of 3 age-appropriate tasks that your child can be responsible ON THEIR OWN (think bedtime routine, chores, cleaning their room, packing their lunch/backpack, etc)
  • Practice deep breathing or taking a break before acting upon something when you are feeling angry or overwhelmed.
