Dear Mack Families,

We are starting off our week with some school spirit, and calling it Mack Monday! We are encouraging our students, faculty, and staff to wear their BCS and/or Mack T-shirts or sweatshirts. We will be having class competitions this week and the class that has the highest percentage of participants will receive an extra recess with Mrs. Smith. Our goal is to start the week off with some fun and show how much we love Mack Elementary.
Oct
6 & 20
EARLY DISMISSAL

As a reminder, school dismisses at 12:55pm tomorrow and in two weeks, on 10/20. There is no PM preschool on early release days.
UPDATES & ANNOUNCEMENTS
Mud & Masks

The warm sunny days have been wonderful and such a blessing. However, cold, rainy days are also part of our fall weather here in the Northwest.

Please remind your students to be prepared with appropriate clothing, extra clothing (for those wet & muddy days) and pack an extra mask in case it gets lost or wet.

Pledge of Allegiance

Routines and rhythms are staring to take their place in the classroom and starting today, we have added another routine that will happen each Monday. Students (K-6) will begin their day reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.

A student from the 5th or 6th grade class will be selected each week to lead in the school wide salute.
