Mabry Minute for Week of 9/17/17
Rescheduling Events
Several events from last week had to be postponed due to the cancellation of school. We are working on coordinating new dates for these events and will post them on the website and Mabry Minute. 
After School Enrichment (ASE) Update
Parents please remind your children that  After School Enrichment (ASE) classes start on Monday the 18th.  Due to the hurricane, the reminder backpack tags will be placed as soon as possible.  In the meantime, review your registrations and remind your children daily if they will be attending a class.  If your child for any reason will not be attending an ASE session this week that they are registered for, please send a written note notifying the teacher of a change in their afternoon dismissal.  Thank you for your help!
